    The death of enthusiasm in the Tea Party GOP movement is maybe elsewhere noted, but also in the Michele Bachmann campaign. In a Democratic district internal poll, the race is close with the Democrat challenging Bachmann already nearly leading.

    Romney-Ryan have to sell everybody on raising taxes on the rich--closing loopholes only for them--and balancing the budget through Pentagon procurements, famous for projects starting at 40% above cost estimates.

    All the other spending they want taken away. The complaint about the Spending Caps that ObamaCare imposed in MediCare payments, probably looks as stupid to the Tea Party as it does to Grandmas, noting that the savings go to help keep the grandchildren, on the health plan.

    (Taking away any mandate from the electorate--for specifics--seems to be working. No one in the Republican Party will likely be included in any new mandate(?)--clearly not even in elected office(?)!)

    Bachman provided comic relief.

    She never failed to make me laugh.

    The DNC has targeted Bachmann and is pouring in millions of dollars from outside to defeat her. It's no surprise that she's in a tough race.

    That reminds me that I need to send her campaign $100.

    The various Al Qaeda leaders being bumped off at the direction of the Obama-Biden Administration have name recognition. Especially when Saddaam Hussein was alive, it is not entirely clear that they would garner too many votes in an election, even in Iraq.

    Saddaam Hussein would have had them all bumped off, more likely, himself(?)! Unlike Saddaam Hussein, or Obama-Biden, it is not clear that Bush-Cheney were at all supportive of having them all bumped off. Since birds of feather...nest: It is not clear that Romney-Ryan would be supportive of having them all bumped off.

    Tea Party would likely be supportive of having them all bumped off--were there any Tea Party, even still active.

    U. S. News & World Report, among others, sites the Democratic Internal Poll, and comments:
    _______________________

    "There might be a very small minority of folks who her conservative principals appeal to," Graves says. "But her hateful, political theater really turns off moderate Republicans and fiscal conservatives."

    Roughly 400 voters were polled in the Republican district, which has become even more of a conservative stronghold this year after redistricting. [See How a Do-Nothing Congress is Stalling the Economy.] (That's a different U. S. News & World Report link!)

    While the poll is good news for the Graves campaign, the Democratic candidate is still struggling with name recognition and financial barriers. Graves, who is a local small business owner, has only a 38 percent name recognition according to the poll.

    Graves also considerably lags behind in fundraising. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Graves has $351,623 on hand, compared to Bachmann's $2.2 million war chest.
    ___________________________

    So the name recognition is so far all with Rep. Bachmann. In June, the spread had been five full points. Something wrong is likely being recognized!

    Can't fault pro-business, U. S. News & World Report for getting in there and pitching--maybe even lifting! Mood swings are like that(?)! Apparently the President did not have to be scrapped off of the ceiling of the now-famous pizza parlor, still in fact open for business in Florida(?)!

    "Crow, James Crow: Shaken, Not Stirred!"
    ("Geronimo" was personally able to create a favorable name recognition, as time went along(?). . .or something. In fact, someone in India, really far away, even named their outlet, "Hitler!" Like in the referenced district, that one does not seem to have worked out all that well, more like "Bachmann!")
