As the news today spreads that Bachmann is forming an exploratory committee to consider a Presidential run, I would like to pause and take a moment to make a plea to her. I know she posts on Redstate and I think she may even read the stuff on here. I like Michele, she has been on the front lines on the fight against abortion, more government, and waste her whole life. She has selflessly given of her time to foster 23 children as well as raising her own 5. Her background as an IRS lawyer will give her invaluable insight in to just how convoluted and unfair the tax code system is, and hopefully she can find a solution to change it.
There are a lot of reasons to really want to get excited and get behind Bachmann for a run at the presidency, but every time I watch her on any of the news outlets, she has a very annoying habit of completely ignoring the question that was asked. Yes the MSM is out to get her, they despise her. I have no problem if she were to choose to talk down to them, but you MUST at least give a cursory answer to the question the interviewer asks you. The more she ignores their question the more they reiterate it and the average person watching comes away with the impression that she is hiding something. So if you are listening out there Michele, please try and do a better job of addressing whatever question is asked of you, no matter how idiotic it may be. It will add to your credibility in the eyes of the undecided.
