You know it is bad when even Fox calls you on being crazy. My how Sarah Palin's replacement has fallen.

. . .haven't watched any Bachmann & Assoc. bites for years. . .what are the alleged grounds for impeachment again? Is it The 2009 Swine Flu Pandemic Coincidence...?

"I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another, then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence." -Rep. Michele Bachmann, on the 1976 Swine Flu outbreak that happened when Gerald Ford, a Republican, was president, April 28, 2009

''I just take the Bible for what it is, I guess, and recognize that I am not a scientist, not trained to be a scientist. I'm not a deep thinker on all of this. I wish I was. I wish I was more knowledgeable, but I'm not a scientist.''
—Michele Bachmann, September 2003

"Our movement at its core is an intellectual movement." ―Rep. Michele Bachmann on the Tea Party movement, CPAC conference, March 2014

At first I thought they were trying to sue over executive orders, but I"m being told by some particularly nasty woman that it is executive ACTIONS. Said ray of sunshine, says executive actions are different from orders, because they don't carry the weight of the law. Of course, I was like if they aren't legally mandatory, wtf is the problem? But yeah.

He does executive actions and orders like every other president. It's only a problem when a Democrat does it of course. Boehner has no spine. He's just doing this because he wants to make the Tea Party happy.

If a Fox News host is losing his patience with the fiddling of the GOP "while Rome is burning" and all they can come up with is more fiddling, than things must be really going downhill for the GOP. They are losing their staunchest supporters, and what do they do (or what does Boehner do)? They send out has been Rep Bachman to explain it all to the nation. How silly is that!

One interpretation in the Comments to the Video, is, that the GOP is finally realizing that the MONSTER that they created, the Teabaggers, that Monster is out-of-control and is EATING them.
They are belatedly trying to Rein In that MONSTER.....
I see a lot of Truth in this point-of-view.

So, even Fox/Faux News is now trying to "fix" things..... get the "Conservatives" back - but the Crazies, I fear {no, I HOPE!}, are in the GOP saddle and are there to stay.....
Still just appeal to a MINORITY of Voters...

Why is it about Republican women, I know the men are a nasty lot but the women just go mad. The problem is that the Tea Party has really lowered the bar on political debate to the level of ineptitude that having a piss up in a brewery would most likely have a few dead bodies as they drowned themselves in their beer. With Michelle Bachmann there is an impression on how someone so ignorant, uncharismatic and untalented managed to get a job in politics. Still, most people generally think that in the case of Mrs Bachmann it is very easy to be blinded to the essential uselessness of her by the sense of achievement people get from getting her to do any work at all.

Noted. Thx, Carrie. Doubt that the combined IQs of Bachmann and Palin would reach a triple digit number. Have no idea how the pair of them made it into national politics...not that any two of their male cohorts would be any different. Sheesh!

The neo con is calling out the crazy in his own party. This is ground zero for serious secession talks!

We are cats living with vicious dogs. Insane!

Btw: She is saying what all the others are talking about behind their closed doors. Boener et al is 100% as bad as Bachman. These people are just pure, 100% hate. They even hate their supporters by making them suffer under the conditions that they want Liberals to suffer under…Actually thinking that we won't notice that it's 100% their fault!

Noted. (not sure "notes" are taking today) Although it was a pleasure to see Cavuto reduce her to a lump of nonsense, I think it's better to have members of the GOP blather on about this than keep pushing for war with Iran, Iraq, etc.....It will keep them busy amongst themselves. lol
