    Bachmann is a member of the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, a bipartisan nonprofit that includes a number of other active lawmakers and raises awareness about adoption and foster care issues. Executive director Kathleen Strottman told TPM that Bachmann has been a “tireless advocate” for the group.

    “She’s been very helpful in speaking about what drew her to become a foster parent and using that for state and local recruiting efforts,” she said. “A lot of what we hear from our programs is that it’s a sheer numbers issue.”

    Indeed, child welfare experts interviewed by TPM universally praised Bachmann for her own sacrifices and the example they set for others.

    Marines for Bachmann!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!OOORAH!

    I wonder how long it will take for the raging liberals to show up and tell us how "batshit crazy" she is, and not acknowledge this side of her.

    I'll tell you when I got sold on Bachmann...

    Oh Bama, in his SOTUS, declared that we would "take back" tax monies forfeited to the petroleum industry so that we could put millions of electric cars on the roads.

    The official Republican response did not mention oil or energy even once.

    Bachmann, however, stated that we should increase domestic production of oil and gas.

    The gal spoke the truth, went out on a limb, and had the yarbs to say what everyone else was too chickenshit to say publicly.

    Well, she does have a bunch of foster kids. But, as I'm informed by the 'liberals', she's a hypocrite for doing that, because she actually takes money from the government! The outrage! Seriously! I am appalled that someone can run for President who has taken money from the state to take care of children who needed families! I bet you're outraged about that too, huh?

    Hmmm, how about outraged the bitch has abandoned the children to run for public office like Palin did. A child deserves a mother in the home, not sucking in the congressional lounge. Misguided bitch is just doing it for her resume.

    I'm sold on her. In fact, I think she should form a 3rd party challenge if she doesn't get the GOP nomination!! :clap2:
