    We must play the game within the confines of the rules in place at the time.

    And that’s all she was doing.

    Also, if she gets in and manages to change those rules, I am confident she will conduct her business within the confines of the new ones once they are in place.

    Michele Bachmann talks out both sides of her mouth, and her ass.

    There's politics - and then she's on a whole nother playing field. Somewhere beyond hypocritical.

    Frankly, I'm surprised anybody still defends her.

    ... I shouldn't be though. This is the same crowd that suddenly believed Paul Revere was firing muskets and ringing bells to warn - yes, that's right: The British.

    Not only did she lobby for stimulus..she lobbied for stimulus that was a direct benefit to her. I personally think that ethically..that stinks..and it should be illegal.

    Economic Storm Continues: Bernanke Says ‘Recovery Even Weaker Than We Had Thought’
    Saturday, August 27, 2011 - Speaking in Jackson Hole, Wyo., yesterday at an economic symposium sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said that the economic recovery in the United States had proved to be “even weaker” than the Federal Open Market Committee had originally thought it was.

    Why should her constituents be disadvantaged? That was her response?

    That's an endorsement of the stimulus. That's an admission that the stimulus helped. That the stimulus worked.

    The way this kind of an appropriation works is that the money is appropriated. That means spent.

    Once it's appropriated, then it will go somewhere. That's how it works. If she wants some of that "already gone" money to flow to the taxpayers in her district, that seems rational to me.

    Appropriating the money for the Failed Stimulus in the first place was stupid as it was poorly planned, clumsily executed, ill directed and, in the end, ineffective. Directing as much money to her constituants and therefore away from the cronies of the Prez is hardly an endorsement of the Failed Stimulus.

    If she could have stopped the whole thing, she would have. In that, she was right.

    Trying to get a "fair share" for her constituants was the resposible and by the by big D Democrat thing to do. I should think you would like her for doing the Democrat thing.
