Today I read about Michelle Bachmann taking the fight to ACORN. She has put out a call to cut off fund for that shady organization. Bachmann said:
“This is about how Congress spends the peoples money in our country and its about the bar that Congress sets for accessing federal funding. The question before us is it a right that anyone is entitled to or is it a privilege that must be earned?”
“No matter how many times prosecutors investigate and even indict acorn and their employees, they emerge unblemished as far as the federal government is concerned,” Bachmann added. “The question is do organizations have a right ot taxpayer money no matter what they do?”
It is this kind of respect for the taxpayer's money that the Tea Parties were all about. This is also the kind of strong conservative views that the base is longing for. Bachmann, if you recall also delievered a smack down to Turbo Tax Timmy, by demanding to know what constitutional authority could he cite for his request for more power.
Michelle Bachmann will no doubt receive the Palin-Treatment from the left soon. She is treading where so few Republicans seem unwilling to go. Like Governor Palin, Bachmann seems more interested in doing what is right by the American people than what is good for her political career. Michelle Bachmann also shares another thing with Sarah Palin ... nasty leftwing bloggers.
Yes, Michelle Bachmann has her own little group of hate bloggers throwing stones at her. Google Michelle Bachman and you find the Dump Michelle Bachmann Blog. While it isn't the myoptic circle jerk of recycled lies, like Palin has with the Alaskan Bloggers, it is a start!
When the GOP 2.0 finally emerges, look for Michelle Bachmann to play a major role. I leave you with Bachmann's Barney Frank's ACORN Amendment.
