According to a survey from the American Research Group, 21 percent of people questioned say they are backing the congresswoman from neighboring Minnesota for the GOP presidential nomination in their state's caucuses. Bachmann was at nine percent in ARG's April poll."
Iowa.... "where the corn is as high as the elephant's eye, An' it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky." Oh wait, that's Oklahoma. Never mind.
Maybe it's because she knows how get government subsidies for her family farm, while maintaining her status as the darlinng of the Tea Party?
Maybe it's a protest against gay marriage? Iowa got gay married by judiciary, and Bachmann's clinic supposedly "cures" homosexuality by prayer. And get gov't money for that too?
No to mention, ok to mention, gov't subsidies for her many foster children.
Wikipedia has an extensive bio (link above). Someone needs to catch her tweetiing naked photos of herself to soldiers in Iraq. Not gonna happen.
Whatever happened to Gingrich? And Santorum? He's crazy religious too. And that woman who used to be McCain's VP choice? What was her name again?
I'm not Steve (although he's very insightful and I amost never disagree with him). Here is a blogger's resume for "Dr" Marcus Bachmann:
"Marcus Bachmann does not have an earned PhD in psychology. He bought the degree at Union College (Cincinnati, OH), a school that he never attended. Bachmann’s degree is not a PhD in psychology. It is a certificate in interdisciplinary studies. ... Bachmann’s “degree” is unaccredited. ...The online college’s doctorate in psychology was denounced by the US Department of Education in 2004 as false. The US Department of Education’s condemnation of the degree the school’s administrators passed on to their “graduates”—which Bachmann ignores....Bachmann is not registered with any of the three boards that certify mental health practitioners and professions in the state. The Minnesota Board of Psychology and the Board of Marriage and Family Therapy confirmed to POLITICO that Bachmann is not licensed with them.
That fits well with Michelle Bachmann's mostly "Cereal-Box" credentials, same site as above "who studied at the disreputable and unaccredited Oral Roberts University (which has as its motto that it is dedicated to the teaching of “the law from a biblical worldview” ... at the Coburn School of Law. The Coburn School of Law... has gone through no fewer than three names including the televangelist Marion G. [Pat] Robertson Christian Broadcasting Network School of Law before its name was changed to Regent University..."
I have not verified this data, but wikipedia states about Michelle Bachmann "
In 1979, Bachmann was a member of the first class of the O.W. Coburn School of Law, a part of Oral Roberts University (ORU). In 1986 she received a J.D. degree from Oral Roberts University. She was a member of the final graduating class of the law school at ORU, and was part of a group of faculty, staff, and students who moved the ORU law school library to what is now Regent University. In 1988, Bachmann received an LL.M. degree in tax law from the William & Mary School of Law. "
So it looks like at least her Tax Law degree was legit.
Wow, these people could not get ordinary government jobs as a counselor or a lawyer with these credentials. The government requires a state U or an accredited university degree.
Here she's getting tons of government subsidies and she's trying to get VA benefits cut!
What's she afraid of, some deserving person might get a government dime?!
