Michele Bachmann Can Run, But Not Hide On Being Anti-Gay

August 16, 2011

Michele Bachmann is trying to have it both ways. 

First Bachmann used her conservative language, along with anti-gay bigotry to gain the hearts of right-wingers.  Once Bachmann had gained a large enough notoriety she then launched a presidential campaign. 

Bachmann knows her anti-gay statements will backfire with a larger more educated national audience, and so needs to walk away from her well-known bigotry. 

But there are many in the country who will not allow her that tactic.

    Bachmann is doing the same thing with regard to gender roles. She frames herself as a strong woman and sugar-coats her prior statements about wives submitting to husbands, laughably defining “submission” as “respect” (see the Iowa debate). This lack of candor is annoying.

    The story has to do with justice, civil rights, and the lack of candor from a candidate that wants the responsibility of leading the nation. If your vote is so cheap that none of that bothers you then I suspect you already have your selection made…..until she drops out of the race in February or early March…and you will need to either vote for Perry or Romney.

    What does this stroy have to do with the price of tea in China?
    Whenever the press attacks Bachmann, she gets a flood of support and money. She becomes ‘Every Woman,’ a misunderstood Tea Party mother of five facing down an elitist, arrogant, Obama-leaning press corps. The dogs bark, but the caravan moves on.
    8/13/11 Michele Bachmann wins the Iowa Straw Poll.
