I will admit that I have to go to Bachmann's web site to see if she has begun articulating how she is going to achieve all of about which she rants. Especially if the House and Senate go Democratic or at least the balance goes against her. That seems to be the question always left out. How? And too, she isn't alone. No one is asked and no one volunteers. Except Herman Cain, but this isn't about him.
That aside, Sarah Palin is still skulking around the sidelines seeking attention. It is neither the time nor the place for a tease, but then that's Palin. I thought it time to compare these two women just in case of a worst case scenario!
I watched Bachmann with Chris Wallace this morning and saw an attractive, articulate candidate, one who dresses and conducts herself in a professional manner. No cutesy poo expressions, no wink wink.
I haven't seen much substance from either. As I said, I need to do my homework on Bachmann. Palin has hijacked the limelight since McCain lost in 2008 and I've seen no growth in substance other than being able to ad lib from pre-received talking points when swapping intellectualisms with Sean Hannity.
Bachmann is out there on the front lines. Fielding the jabs, espousing her stands and doing rather well at it. Palin? She seems to drop in like an uninvited guest. If she enters the race I do believe she'll do it to deny Bachmann, but if so she may have underestimated how tired people have become of her. She's been replaced by a Congresswoman who actually has a record even if not sterling and a real Governor, Rick Perry, who would, I expect, make mince meat of her in a debate.
Whether or not I change my opinion of Michele Bachmann remains to be seen. However, if I had to choose between these two women there is no contest. Bachmann seems to genuinely care about the country. Palin seems to genuinely care about herself. Rock on Michele!
