The Minneapolis Star Tribune Goes Easy On Michele Bachman

Comments Off

A piece in the Sunday paper, that unfortunately isn’t online, is really a puff piece on the quote machine from the Sixth district. While the article does cite a number of her recent comments, it seems to provide support that she is actually a rational voice for the conservative movement. It will be interesting to see if that becomes the truth or is just a dream on her part.

Take a look at the recent statements:

"Thomas Jefferson told us having a revolution every now and then is a good thing and we the people are going to have to fight back if we aren’t going to lose our country"

Really? A sitting Congresswoman is suggesting that we have revolution? Does she realize that she’s been a part of that government for awhile now? Does she really want the government to be overthrown? It seems to me, that this language is very close to treason. Maybe, it’s not well thought out. The "armed and dangerous" discussion that went along with this quote, especially troubling. Suggesting that it really was treasonous.

The American taxpayer expects health and retirement security, control of our nation’s debt, and an economic plan that continues on a path of growth and leadership in the global economy.

Where was this talk as we were throwing money away on the war? Is this truly something that is important to her? Is it a new position? Seems to be the words of a changed person, maybe we will see.

And so we need to once again decide, do we want to be free, or do we want to be slaves? We have to make that decision. And I know I’ve made my choice, you’ve made your choice. And we have to act in concert if we want to make sure that we can hold on to what we have.

It’s interesting that she would use this mortifier. So what exactly are we slaves of? I guess it’s an attempt to say that she won’t pay taxes. Again it makes you wonder if she knows what her job is. It makes you wonder if she thinks she could be up for a cabinet post.

It is simply irresponsible to shut down a facility that houses known terrorists and transfer them to our neighborhoods

This is her being a legislator. It’s the creation of a straw-man that we need to fear. The idea that the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center in Cuba shutdown is going to lead to them moving into downtown St Cloud. First, it’s built on the faulty logic that these were terrorists being held. We really don’t know because no one was getting a hearing there. Beyond that, there has been no indication whatsoever that Minnesota is a destination.

I’m a foreign correspondent on enemy lines and I try to let everyone back here in Minnesota know exactly the nefarious activities that are taking place in Washington.

Finally, this just seems bizarre. I know that Washington changed a lot in the last couple of months, but thats really what the electorate seemed to want. In fact enough of them actually sent her there also. It’s amazing that she believes any of it.

Maybe the Tribune was on to something. For the Conservative movement, they better hope not.
