After a few things going on longer tonight than expected (including finishing up some ark duties) I was settling down to so tonight’s “Palin Report” but felt that I was not at my freshest or most awake, two conditions that add to quality opining, so I’ve decided to tackle it tomorrow. I looked at my topic list, and I want to get to all of it, some of which requires an edge and decent analysis LOL! I know I’ll have that for you Saturday 🙂

Just a reminder also about some upcoming calendar happenings. First, we expect to launch the new design of the blog in the next week or so. Might go longer, but that’s our target. I’m very excited as it’s geared to be a more useful resource to all readers and listeners as we dive into the next very important 18 months. There will be more news elements, more blogging, more media, and special elements for TAMs and Civilians alike. My thanks to Rachael, Lisa and Pat for their work, insight and help during this process.

As I mentioned on the show today, I will be on a Fox show other than the “O’Reilly Factor” on Monday! I’ll be on the Fox Business Network’s “Scoreboard” show, Monday, March 14. It seems like I’ll be on their panel for at least two segments. Really looking forward to that. Hope you can tune in.

Now confirmed, I’ll be filling in for Laura Ingraham on Thursday and Friday, March 17 & 18. As we get closer, I’ll remind you.

Then, on Tuesday, March 29 I’m proud to be a part of the “Restoring America Summit & Rally” in Pittsburgh, PA. Tabitha Hale with FreedomWorks was on Tammy Radio discussing this event, and it’s going to be great. Visit the website for more information and registration.

There are a few more events coming up, as soon as I get details on those, I’ll let you know.

This section is for comments from's community of registered readers. Please don't assume that Tammy agrees with or endorses any particular comment just because she lets it stand.

    Do you ever sleep? Please mention how Thing1 lied during his thing on Friday. He said there are more rigs than ever in the Gulf. He omitted that most of those are not operational. Thing1 also said that the US has less than 2% of the world’s oil reserves — liar, liar, pants on fire!! The Thingie is a pathological liar!!!!

  2. BostonBruin says:

    I think it’s about time for Gov. Palin to write another “Lies, Dam Lies” article about Obama’s nonsense energy policy.

    Tammy – don’t know if you plan to address this issue on the Palin Report, but I’d appreciate your comments on what you think Michele Bachmann is up to. There has been some heated discussion over at C4p about her political intentions. Is she serious about running for the Presidency for herself, was she bought out by Romney or is she “setting the table” for Gov. Palin?

    Quinnipac poll taking temp of folks. Rate from 1 to 100 how warm you feel toward a name. Palin only 4% didn’t know her well enuf to ans. Bachmann (and Chrisite) 55% didn’t know well enuf to answer. That is MB’s problem. If she chooses to run, I see another strong woman who, like Palin, has suffered demeaning abuse and risen above it. Is she qualified to run, yes. Is she playing a political game? don’t know. My impression of her would say no, but again, I do not really know that much about her to sure. Is the GOP using her to diminsh Palin and cause a split? Sounds like something they would do, but again don’t see MB going along with that. Is this part of an effort to force Palin to jump into the race before she wants to? Again, I don’t see MB playing that game. Palin has a strong base who will follow her lead. She keeps that base, but I can see attempts to cause infighting among conservatives re SP v MB which would waste effort, energy and divide & play into the hands of the elites in the party===> let the battle be between the girls, and exhausted, we are forced to accept the choice made by the establishment. They are hoping for a nasty cat fight, so they can sit back and say, see what happens when you let Darla into the clubhouse. We don’t need the distraction of arguing. So, until the fog clears, and I get more info, will keep my powder dry and relish seeing a day when it would be possible to have a whole bunch of Exceptional Americans, who happen to be women, interested and committed to running for POTUS. Having a possible Bachmann in the race need not diminish Palin. If she can take on the boys, surely she can handle another girl. Competition for the hearts and minds of Americans is the challenge, and is good for the soul.

    PS. Palin can win, Bachmann means 4 more yrs BHO.

  5. BostonBruin says:

    LJ – your comments reflect the debate about this issue over at C4P. I really don’t think Bachmann is qualified since she has no significant executive experience. Palin’s experience from city council to governor and small business owner as well as her knowledge of the energy sector put her way ahead of Bachmann as a candidate (IMO).

    • LJZumpano says:

      MB has a definite problem re leadership ability. She has been in House for a while, a strong voice, but seems unable to get any sizeable group to follow her. As leader for a tea party caucus, having trouble getting others to join in. Current POTUS ploy may be an attempt to get away from a Congress that marginalizes her and into a different forum where she could be a star.
      In many ways she seems a loner, with a strong voice, but not having the qualities one seeks in a leader.
      Palin, on the other hand, seems to motivate folks to want to join in and follow her lead. I really feel bad that I don’t know enuf about MB to be able to do more than guess.
      Palin has had the executive experience which will serve her well as POTUS. If she in in the race, not only will she give it her all, win or lose, but she will force all the other candidates to bring on their best game. Her presence is a challenge to the rest and she will keep them all on their toes. No squishyness will be allowed. Competition is in her blood, not just winning at any cost, but as a a way of life that constantly improves who you are. Time and again we have seen Palin challenge herself and come out stronger. Winning is important, but more important is how you win, and what the win accomplishes. She has an attitude that does not expect to have things given to her, she is fully prepared to work for everything. Personally when tough choices need to be made, I trust Palin to make them far more than anyone else I’ve seen. Pragmatic choices are required of a POTUS, Palin knows this, and while some of them may be painful, I trust her judgement, to the point that even if I don’t personally agree with one, I will accept it.

  6. sohali99 says:

    MBachman is a stooge for Newt or Romney to draw away from Palin, they hope. She is competing for a VP post or greater influence in Congress. She is there to diminish Palin’s chances in Iowa and SC, the states both Romney and Newt would do better in if Palin is not in race.

    • Artgal says:

      You are absolutely correct, Sohali99. I know Bachmann is praised for being the conservative voice of the GOP, but I wouldn’t be surprised to learn the party has struck a deal w/ her if she’ll stand by the GOP status quo to a great degree in 2012 – and in time, I think that’s exactly what we will realize.

      • girlsgotrhythm says:

        Excuse me but…Are you guys on CRACK?!
        Sohaili99 AND the ARTGAL are both as wrong, wrong, WRONG as can be!

        Bachmann is about as steadfast a conservative as you will ever find!!! As we speak, she along with Steve King, are the LONE voices in congress that have made the American people aware of the 102 BILLION dollars sneaked into the Obamacare legislation. Exactly why Boehner and company didn’t want her to have a leadership position in the house! Exactly because she stands up and DOESN’T do deals with Obama and company! Wish the same could be said for crybaby Boehner!

        Bachmann is ALL about the constitution and conservative principles and it is quite weird, surprising, disappointing, and irresponsible for anyone who calls themselves a conservative to be besmirching her in such a way as you two have. Bachmann is nobody’s stooge! She has enough balls to stand up to the establishment and should be applauded for it! What’s WRONG with you guys who say otherwise?

        This isn’t a contest of ‘chicks’! Bachmann stands on her own, as an individual. So does Palin. What of it? And I’m sure Palin would agree with me about Bachmann. That Bachmann is as right on a conservative in every way as one could ever want! We should be lucky enough to have many more in congress just like her, principle-wise!!

        You guys are WAY out to lunch on this one and what you’ve said is disgraceful, given that there are SO FEW of Bachmann’s caliber that we have in congress to represent we the people!!

        • Artgal says:

          This has nothing to do with a ‘chick’ contest, and I even understand why you are upset w/ what I wrote. I don’t like having to say it, but there is truth to what I have stated. You will just have to trust me on this – or trust the politicians. There’s so much more going on within both parties than we realize.

          BTW: I’m curious as to why King – who I like also – voted to expand Obamacare on March 9 when they should have been focusing on eliminating it altogether. To Bachmann’s credit, she voted against it.

          • girlsgotrhythm says:

            Artgal: You have no evidence on what you charge. And if you did you would state it. Therefore you are engaging in lies, conjecture and outright slander of a good and decent person. And why? Because you think she is threatening Palin in some way? Hogwash! Pony up with some facts. Otherwise, it’s just hot air. Which interestingly is all the leftists got when they try to do likewise to Palin!

          • Artgal says:

            So now I’m accused of lying, slander, conjecture. GGR – you know me personally. I’m truly sorry you see it fit to take to a public forum to accuse someone you call ‘friend’ of being of such sordid character and place the charge of engaging as a leftist.

            You may recall I worked for 3 campaigns over 2 years and currently, am working for another candidate for 2012. I am in the loop and there are indeed facts to support my concerns about Bachmann. Yes – she’s a conservative and a fighter. She is also among the minority in the GOP and even though she has done some extraordinary things, she is also mindful of who she has to rely on – at least for now.

            It is not prudent for me to share everything I know on a public forum, but you know my phone number.

            Hope to hear from you.

          • Tammy says:

            Uh, this is unnecessary. People can have a difference of opinion, especially TAMs, without accusing people of lying. That’s, frankly, odd *and* unacceptable. girlsgotrhythm, your response to Artgal was insulting and strange. You owe her an apology. All of us are going to find points where we disagree in the next 18 months, and I suggest we do that disagreeing with respect and honor of our fellow TAMs.

  7. rickh says:

    Tammy, the Asman show as well as Eric Bolling’s are FAR superior to OReilly. You will love being on that show! I watch FBN all the time.

    • Tammy says:

      Really looking forward to it 🙂 It’s been so long since I’ve been on a different show, with the exception of Red Eye but that was fun too. I know Maynard *really* liked it 🙂

  8. mrcannon says:

    Tammy, feel free to take the entire weekend off. Since the Messiah-In-Chief is still planning to put on a tux and speak tonight at the Gridiron dinner, there is obviously nothing going on in the world.

  9. ffigtree says:

    Didn’t Palin campaign for Bachmann? That seemed like such a long time ago! My perception of Bachmann, like LJ, is that she is a loner. I don’t think that is good or bad. I don’t have enough information. I do like that she has embraced the Tea Party. Perhaps, that is a sign that she is not part of the machine and also why she seems to be a loner inside the beltway. Time will tell.

    I like the fact that Bachmann is pro incandecent light bulb: “Light Bulb Freedom of Choice Act”!

    Now we need to free Capt’n Crunch!

    • Artgal says:

      It’s true Palin campaigned for Bachmann, and I loved the sight of these two strong women standing side by side in front of a very large enthusiastic crowd. Unfortunately, there have been many people Palin helped who have also distanced themselves from her at some point. Even Nikky Haley was dismissive of Palin after the Tucson shootings. It’s not Palin who is the problem – it’s the GOP establishment.

      Though I do think Bachmann is a strong conservative voice, I do know that she is indeed still loyal to the party to a great degree. I’m sure there is much pressure on her and others. As much as I want to believe Bachmann is on the tea party side, it’s difficult for me to entirely embrace people who have been in office for a while as ‘tea party’.

      Tammy has often said there is just ‘something’ about Bachmann that doesn’t quite feel right. All I can say is Tammy is justified in having that reaction.

      • girlsgotrhythm says:

        Nope. Tammy’s wrong, too then. Bachmann is right on.

        • Crueladev says:

          Nope..Tammy is not wrong! Before Tammy ever said a word about Bachmann..I had a Gut feeling about Bachmann…and if anyone knows anything about ME…I always go with my GUT…and it is usually NOT wrong!

          Bachmann may be a great person..don’t know..never met her! But I have the same issue as Tammy..there is something there that is ringing RED FLAGS…I just need to put my finger on it! Something is screaming at me..NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I will find it..
          Over the course of the past 2 weeks..I think I am drawing closer to what “it” is!…Time will tell!

          • CurliQ says:

            Wow, ggr. That’s a whole lot of face smackin’ going on. Make sure the check is made out to you.

          • Kimj7157 says:

            I, for one, would be interested in hearing Bachmann’s speech. Thanks, TwoLegs, for offering it up. Wish there was some other way to make it available.

          • Tammy says:

            Yes, actually, here it is, about 10 minutes. Will be curious about your take on it —

          • Shifra says:

            Just curious: Where did Michelle Bachmann get her Ph.D. in psychology? Anyone ? Bueller? Bueller?

          • Kimj7157 says:

            TwoLegs–Thanks for your efforts!

          • Crueladev says:

            Sorry GGRthym…but your “rhythm” seems to be OFF!..
            I am NOT impressed with Bachmann as I did NOT HEAR much out of Bachmann last week when the vote came down for the Animal “wanna be” Docs get a wonderful new package under the ObamaCare Package. I follow Bachmann on Twitter and I had to laugh at her because on the same day the House passed this stupid bill….she was squawking about how they were fighting so hard to defund ObamaCare! Really Michele…fighting so hard??…95 of your fellow Reps…voted to fund an ObamaCare program! Not one word from Bachmann….Not one Word!
            Was she there? Was she Napping? You claim dedication…where was she?

            My questions and my “GUT feelings” about Bachmann have to do with a business standpoint. I am not real sure she has a great grasp of how business is run! There seems to be some questions! I will sit back and monitor it..but as for now..I am not so impressed! And GGRhythm…don’t assume that we are not out doing our own research…you would be seriously wrong on that front!

          • morecowbell says:

            CRU !! Go look at Bachmann’s voting record. As a matter of fact, everybody should be looking at the voting records of all these guys and get away from basing our positions on candidates based on sound bytes, tweets and anything said in the media from any source (even Tammy can be wrong !!).

            This is what I do:

            Figured out where I stood on a variety of different issues by using resources like the CATO Institute and the Heritage Foundation… made sure I know why I stand for.. what I believed to be right in my mind. I also have read a lot on political history, I want to make sure I can argue a position on facts and history, not feelings or ideology.

            I look at legislation coming through and researched where I stand on the legislation… whether I would vote yes or no on the legislation based on what I could dig up. Note sometimes I will vote ‘no’ on a piece of legislation that looks right on the surface but when I dig in I discover it’s crap.

            Then I look at where the major players stand on the legislation.. particularly my Reps…. I have even gone so far as to e-mail them directly with respectful, pointed questions about their positions on specific issues/legislation… most of them responded with very clear answers.

            Then I look at the track records of the Reps… how do they vote on different types or categories of legislation? There are many different sites that allow you to analyze legislation and voting records… my favorite is I also use ‘ranking’ sites like,, to see how other lessor known reps stand on issues and how closely they represent my positions. It’s also very important to know what committees are out there, who is sitting on them, their rank in the committees, what legislation is before which committee, etc…

            Then I look at who is backing the Reps… follow the money… I use… great site.

            And of course, there is Tammy, Drudge and Fox News…

            And lastly, I keep an open mind. I may have a position based on how I ‘felt’ about an issue, but changed my mind after researching.

            This process helps me figure out exactly what I stand for, why I stand for it, where the reps are in relation to my position, what the reps stand for and how they are voting vs what they are saying in front of the media. This sounds like a lot of work, but it is the least I can do when you consider what is at stake.

            At the end of the day, their vote is all that counts. That is the only objective measure we can have on these guys.. how they vote. Everything else is just BS… and I keep track of that as well.

            I have learned talk is cheap. This last election cycle, I budgeted monthly and I sent my support directly to candidates based on voting records and nothing else. Sometimes it was to opponents of those who voted against what I thought was right and I let them know it. More importantly, I educated myself on the local political front and engaged accordingly. I found my support has far more impact locally on the issues than to pop off a few bucks in a last minute ‘Money Bomb’ to a national candidate… a long term trickle up effect. I discovered that timing is everything in when and how you support a candidate.

            Today, I don’t argue with anyone anymore about politics .. it’s a waste of time. I support Cantor, for example, because of his consistent conservative voting record over the years. I don’t care if he is part of ‘The Establishment’ or not. I support Bachmann because of her voting record, I don’t care if she may be a competitor to Palin or not.

            I learned all these things from Tammy. I went from feeling helpless, jaded, afraid and outraged in mid 2008 — emotional — to educated, informed, engaged and effective — rational — today. After reading the cat fighting between the TAMS — and I respect all TAMS — in this post, I have to ask myself the question on whether you guys really care about what is right or who is right.

            Just saying… thanks Tammy!!! … chalk me up in the column ‘Amends Made’ when calculating your tally sheet for your time on the Left !!

          • Tammy says:

            First, yes I can be wrong, but only probably .05% of the time 😉 And Cow, TAMs can and will disagree on some issues and candidates. It’s good we’re finding our footing now. Sometimes there might even be fights, but it’s not because we don’t care about who’s right and wrong. it’s because we *do* care about that. Let’s all remember this as we move forward, feel free to speak our minds and stand our ground on whatever and for whomever, but practice being respectful in conveying those disagreements to TAMs. When it comes to other people, be as snarky as possible! LOL!

            My gut tells me …hidden agenda on voting record!..just sayin’!

  10. cjp2361 says:

    Here’s a less nefarious take on Bachmann & 2012 – All I’ve ever heard/read about Bachmann is that her goal is to continue keeping the issues front center and to keep people informed. I haven’t heard her waiver from that mantra. If that’s her goal, then why not play coy, as she’s been doing, when asked if she’s running in 2012? What better way to keep the media interested in what she’s doing and, in particular, what she’s saying? Bachmann’s not a stupid person. I’m sure she’s aware the reason she’s being interviewed is so she can be asked the “are you running in 2012” question. Use the opportunity & a majority of any interview time to inform people about the issues…as with the $105B spending automatically built into Obamacare….and then take the obligatory 2012 question. She can play the ‘I don’t know yet’ game and keep ’em coming back for more. I just don’t see Bachmann’s motives being anything more ‘sinister’ than that. Just my humble opinion 🙂

    • girlsgotrhythm says:

      You’re right, cjp2361! Bravo! Bachman is a wonderful stateperson and an exemplary representaive of the people! One would be hard-pressed to find one so noble and true!

      • Tammy says:

        One of the reasons I’m so concerned about Bachmann is her odd obsession about Teh Gheys. Take this quote:

        “Any of you who have members of your family that are in the [gay] lifestyle—we have a member of our family that is. This is not funny. It’s a very sad life. It’s part of Satan, I think, to say this is gay. It’s anything but gay.” And this:

        “It leads to the personal enslavement of individuals. Because if you’re involved in the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it’s bondage. Personal bondage, personal despair, and personal enslavement. And that’s why this is so dangerous.”

        Both she and her husband are strangely focused on homosexuality. And you know what I think about that–one usually finds interesting things about the people obsessed with Teh Gheys.

        • jeaneeinabottle says:

          Isn’t that weird it’s like the Christian gustapo, which tells you everything. Christians don’t meddle, we want to help everyone, that’s part of our problem. That’s why we like you Tammy, you help us with our other side and still stand in the truth. It’s hard to balance all of it but you are the best teacher evah 🙂

        • ShArKy666 says:

          hrm…tammy that’s freaky..i never knew bachmann said those things…maybe she’s almost kinda theocratic like sanitarium

        • srrchl says:

          Tammy: What you stated above makes sense as a reason to have concerns about Bachmann. I am used to receiving substance from you and didn’t understand the sniping at Bachmann based upon her American history mistakes. The above is substantive. I am not comfortable with the religious right Bible belter segment of the conservative movement. Bringing up Satan in connection with being gay? Yikes! Scary! Sadly, many believe that Palin is of that ilk and don’t see her expansiveness. Glasser, her new chief of staff, for example is a vegetarian.

        • Kimj7157 says:

          Wondering about the context of these statements, Tammy. Is there a link available? Would appreciate it.

          So many pressing issues facing our Country. Wouldn’t this be one of the social issues that you mention that should be put on a back-burner when it comes to addressing those things facing Americans that are the MOST critical these days? Her positions on the economy, defense, terrorism, illegal immigration, etc. are what will matter most to me. Bachmann certainly isn’t perfect (and it DOES really bother me that she didn’t stand up for Palin when it mattered most) but I think she is definitely one of the good guys and not a threat to Sarah in any way. If it came to a choice between the two, I don’t think there would be much of a contest in the independent conservative Tea Party world. Palin all the way.

          • Tammy says:

            Yes, actually, here it is, about 10 minutes. Will be curious about your take on it —

          • Kimj7157 says:

            Appreciate the link, Tammy. My take is that the subject of gay marriage is something she obviously passionately disagrees with but, after listening to the clip, I don’t think her beliefs come from a place of hate. Not all homosexuals are the same, just as not all heterosexuals are the same. I think there are certainly those within BOTH communities that would fall into the “personal bondage, personal despair, and personal enslavement” category when it comes to how they choose to lead their lives and the behaviors they choose to engage in and it would seem that Michelle might not be willing to make that distinction. So I think Bachmann is wrong to try and label only the homosexual community with that broad brush, but she certainly has a right to her opinion on gay marriage however she came to her conclusion. What does bother me more is that she is against civil unions as well (which she doesn’t talk about in the clip but is on her website). All that being said, I still think she is one of the good guys when it comes to fighting for what is best for America and her stand on gay marriage/rights doesn’t have to preclude that. I also don’t think she is presidential material. So there.

            This discussion prompted me to look up your “old” essay on the subject of gay marriage: “Respecting Marriage and Equal Rights”


            “I, one among many, respect and understand the growing concern about the disintegration of our traditions and values. I am so concerned, it is the heart and soul of my second book, The Death of Right and Wrong.

            Consequently, I respect the majority of Americans and their opinion that marriage should be defined as between one man and one woman.

            At the same time, as an American, I also believe that every American deserves the same rights and protections as every other. Most of you do, too. The very same polls that show how united Americans are against gay marriage indicate a majority approving of civil unions.

            That doesn’t surprise me. It is consistent with the American belief that we can have fair play and equality while recognizing the need to honor traditional institutions.”

            Love that. It’s a great piece. All should read.

          • Artgal says:

            I agree, Kim, that Bachmann is entitled to her beliefs. I’m not bothered that she is against homosexuality – lots of people are – some decent; some not. She indeed assigned one group as having ‘a very sad life’ when that can be applied to anyone regardless of their gay/straight/somewhere inbetween status. One can hardly miss the escalation of bliss and happiness of straight couples entering divorce courts.

            From an education standpoint, I don’t like ANY sex ed being taught in schools. It is not taught with any emphasis on self-control, having self-respect or respect for the other person, or anything beyond pleasure/gratification. Young people are at an awkward age anyway and to play on their immaturity combined with raging hormones is subsidized abuse courtesy of the government-controlled school system which is close to falling under complete federal control – and there is an element of the GOP willing to help (Jeb Bush). I share Bachmann’s concern about all school children being exposed to any form of government-imposed sex ed, but not just the gay sex – ALL of it! Kids have no business having sex – period – and there is something disgustingly wrong with adults who insist on raping the minds of children under the guise of ‘education’.

            What really angered me in the video is Bachmann’s troubling assessment that Westboro are somehow aligned with us to make Christians look bad. Then, am I to believe that Westboro was actually hired by the families of the Tucson shooting victims to make our community look more violent and crazy than the media had already (mis)represented? Hey, maybe the military has hired Westboro to picket the funerals of our troops, too. Now, it all makes sooooooooo much sense!

            My main concern about Bachmann is her willingness to placate the establishment at times and yes, that was indeed the case in some key 2010 races she initially supported. Sorry, but that’s the truth.

            We tend to forget that even people who have done some things we like in DC are human and therefore, fallible creatures. I’m sure there is a great deal of ‘you scratch my back; I’ll scratch yours’ in many circles & it hits all politicians – especially when politicians need help for their own campaigns or aspire to something more.

            Some of Bachmann’s statements in the video link provide some insight into someone who is all too willing to speak on a whim at times without facts to back up her own accusations of gay people – and the bizarre alignment she claims exists between the gay community and Westboro. Don’t know how to break this to everyone, but I didn’t get a hotline tip on the big flaming lavendar lesbian phone I keep hidden in my closet telling me to help our pal Fred Phelps harass a mourning family somewhere. Didn’t happen. I also cringe at the thought of some people listening to her who may not know many or any (?) gay people taking her rant as THE Word and hammering it elsewhere.

            You know, it’s also stunning that she talks about how gay people dress. I know that many gay pride events have had guys dressed like chicks or prancing around in seatless chaps, and who can forget the soothing voices and models of beauty displayed by Dykes on Bikes? She wants to believe the attention whores in the gay community speak and dress for all of us – that’s her problem, but many of us have a normal appearance, normal jobs, relatively normal lives outside of the fact we date or commit to people of the same gender. She does not like the media portrayal of conservatives, so why would she fall for the media portrayal of gays and lesbians?

            While Michelle Bachmann thinks Phelps is the best friend to the gay community, what she doesn’t realize is many of us have been her best friend! I have not always supported things she’s said, but I have applauded many of her votes, filled up w/ pride listening to her speech regarding Cap’n’Trade in 2009 and have generally agreed with many things she has stood for. I’m also aware that she is still a politician whose party is still controlled by the Old Guard of the GOP.

    FBN has a fresh new perspective. I am so over O’Reilly. I cannot deal with him talking over people and trying to dance on the head of a pin as if he is non-partisan. His ‘holier than thou’ attitude with guests has really gotten old.

    I believe Gov Palin is the one who can defeat hussein obama, oprah’s buddy…I don’t believe MB can do it nor the boy’s club. The world is waiting, as we are waiting for her decision. That is significant.
    Luv Tammy and heck yeah for more time on FNC and FBN!

    I think Bachmann is being used by someone, unless there is a secret pact with Sarah to test the waters. I had heard that MB’s campaign did not cash Sarah’s check from Sarah PAC which was contributed to her campaign. Now, why would you not cash $5,000 while you cashed all other checks? I thought that was odd.
    MB was complimentary of Sarah today on Judge Pirro on Fox, however, so no one knows. Stay tuned.
    BTW, I am noticing the libs hate Bachmann as much as Sarah, maybe even more.

    There is also the possibility that Bachmann is raising her profile for a run for the Senate in 2012 or 2014. Could you imagine a Bachmann v. Franken debate in 2014? : ) Considering a lot of Bachmann’s moves and where she is traveling to, it seems she is considering a presidential run. I like Bachmann, but I think executive experience is needed, especially now. I don’t want to say shouldn’t run because of Palin.That would be adhering to the ” next line” mentality. However, I don’t think it would be a smart move politically for her , unless she’s up to some funny business. Hopefully, she isn’t. I’m 100% behind Palin, unless for some reason she doesn’ t run. Bachmann is great , but she doesn’t have the executive experience and name recognition.

    Look forward to your upcoming appearances, Tammy ! 🙂

    Is this beat up Artgal day?? If Bachmann’s so wonderful why are you getting so bent? Didn’t she meet her husband when they working with Jimmy Carter? You can’t tell me she didn’t know about the $100 billion before now, they are using it as a bargaining tool. To bargain for what I don’t know, the old boys and girls want Obamacare, they keep bringing bills up with it still in it and passing them. I think Bachmann has her own ambitions for power or she would stop playing the game.

    Ditto, what Rick said. I’m a huge FBN watcher and enjoy the hosts and guests much more than Fox News. I just hope the wicked smart E-Mac (Elizabeth MacDonald) is on the panel with Tammy. I consider her my economics teacher. 🙂
