    She could help the GOP by dropping out of the race and shutting her fucking mouth.

    Hmmm...

    Could the Tea Party actually be Obama's salvation in 2012? - War Room - Salon.com

    Be sure to watch the video at the bottom, it explains a lot about what's going on on the right.

    Did you read the article? It's like a giant game of chess, where they 'need' her for a certain length of time, for certain reasons.

    I heard that the money behind the Bush family despises Perry, and will put all their money and power toward making sure he doesn't get the nomination or election.

    No. I didn't read the article. It's my own opinion.

    <excerpted from your post>
    Released on Tuesday, the CNN/Opinion Research Center survey found that just 33 percent of voters say they have a favorable opinion of the GOP, while 59 percent have an unfavorable view. It's the worse the GOP has ever fared since CNN began asking the question nearly 20 years ago. Democrats, by contrast, clocked in at 47 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable.
    Thanks -

    You know, for a lady, Michele Bachmann has a lot of balls. I wouldn't count her our or take her to lightly.

    The Republican Party taking political advice from Commie Leftist Salon magazine would be like a cancer patient taking advice from Jack Kevorkian. He probably doesn't have your best interests at heart! :lol:

    Bachmann winning Iowa wouldn't be that big of a deal for two reasons.

    1) She was born in Iowa and lives in neighboring MN. Therefore, a victory there would be as meaningful as Bob Dole in 1988, or Tom Harkin in 1992.

    2) The longer this goes on, the more she is seen as a little nuts. She's been steadily declining in national polls. She hit her height in July at 14% in the RCP average and now she's down to single digits.

    3) Romney intentionally ignoring Iowa delegitimizes it as much as McCain's ignoring it in 2000 and 2004.

    4) Bachmann's best hope in Iowa is not to get beaten by Perry. If she does, she's done. Perry only has to place second, do a strong finish in NH, and win SC.
