Bachmann wins Iowa straw poll as Perry looms
By James Oliphant
August 13, 2011

Michele Bachmann captured the famed Iowa Straw Poll in Ames Saturday, reaching a high-profile benchmark in her meteoric rise to a top-tier presidential candidate.

Bachmann made history, as well, becoming the first woman to win the event. She received 4,823 votes out of the almost 17,000 votes cast. The turnout was a significant leap over four years ago but didn't approach the record of more than 23,000 votes cast back in 1999.

The Minnesota congresswoman narrowly outpaced libertarian Rep. Ron Paul, who had 4,671 votes, and whose red t-shirt-wearing supporters flooded the campus of Iowa State University, and packed the arena when Paul spoke. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty finished third with 2,293, a showing that keeps him in the game for next year’s Iowa caucuses, but had to come off as slightly disappointing.

The hope in his camp was that his organization muscle in Iowa would propel him to the top, but he was no match for the charismatic Bachmann, whose political star continues its dizzying ascent. Where Pawlenty relied on traditional, on-the-ground campaigning, Bachmann rode a wave of media-fueled enthusiasm that, right now, shows no sign of abating.

Still, in spite of Bachmann’s victory, the poll came on the day that Texas Gov. Rick Perry declared that he, too, will mount a presidential run, setting up a showdown in Iowa over the social and fiscal conservatives that dominate the caucuses here.

Bachmann planned to appear on the five major network Sunday morning talk shows Sunday as part of a  blitz to capitalize on the win—and perhaps a tactic to thwart Perry’s momentum. Both candidates will speak at a dinner in Waterloo, Iowa Sunday evening.

Winning the straw poll doesn’t guarantee victory in the caucuses, however; Mitt Romney won in 2007 and then lost to Mike Huckabee when it counted five months later. And Perry’s candidacy unsettles the race further, making the outcome next year here hazier than ever.

Perry's backers sought space at the Straw Poll but ran in to objections from other candidates. As a result the Texan's supporters gathered via word of mouth and Facebook at the tent headquarters of Strong America Now an organization founded in part by Dallas entrepreneur Mike George.

The crowd of 200 or so in the tent burst into applause as Perry announced his candidacy in a broadcast from South Carolina.

One of those wearing one of the dozens of purple "Rick Perry for America" t shirts was Craig Schoenfeld a Des Moines attorney who had previously worked in other campaigns, most recently leading Newt Gingrich's Iowa operation.

He predicted that Iowans would warm to Perry as the true conservative "who can win... It becomes an issue of pragmatism."

Bachmann: Washington is 'Vile,' 'Corrupt' But Can Join the 'Real World'
Published August 14, 2011
FoxNews.com

Calling Washington "vile and corrupt," Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann said Sunday she won't compromise her "core principles" if elected president, but she would take steps to negotiate "advancements" in the right direction.

"The trajectory that the country is going right now is negative, everyone knows it. So we need to have a president that is as least going to get us on the trajectory of going in the right direction," Bachmann told "Fox News Sunday."

Bachmann is enjoying a victory lap after taking 28 percent of the nearly 17,000 votes cast in a Saturday poll of Iowa Republican voters weighing in on the crop of 2012 GOP presidential candidates. Bachmann said Iowa is a much better place to be than in Washington, in part because politicians in Washington refuse to live within their means.

"I think we need to reform the system currently that we have in Washington because it is absolutely vile and corrupt. It has no connection with where we need to spend the money. It has everything to do with political connections," she said.
Bachmann specifically pointed to President Obama, who passed a $3.6 trillion budget even though the government only receives $2.2 trillion in revenues.

"We spent every cent of that $2.2 trillion. The problem is we spent an additional $1.5 trillion we didn't have," she said. "One thing we need to do is reject the new normal level of spending under the Obama administration. ... Government has no conformity at all with the real world."

Bachmann said she would not have made the same deal reached by Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate to look for $2.4 trillion in cuts over 10 years because it only cuts $21 billion off the top.

Explaining the unanimous opposition to the hypothetical scenario posed during last week's Fox News/Washington Examiner debate of the Republican presidential candidates, Bachmann said no Republican would take a 10-to-1 debt deal that offers $10 in spending cuts for $1 in tax increases because the cuts aren't "real."

Bachmann said those who try to compare today's crop of GOPers to President Ronald Reagan, who did compromise on tax increases, are overlooking history. She said while Reagan agreed to a 3-to-1 deal of spending cuts to tax increases, the outcome turned out very differently.

"It ended up being $3 in tax increases for every dollar in spending cuts. That's the way it works in D.C." she said. "The deal sounds so rosy at the very beginning and usually the cuts are illusory, they're off in future years  ... We can beat our chests and be really proud and say, 'oh we're going to cut trillions of dollars but we can't guarantee what future Congresses will do.'

"That's why no one would take that deal on the Fox stage or debate because we all know that they're fake cuts. Essentially they sound good as sound bites but they aren't real," Bachmann said.

Bachmann added that she voted against the 2009 stimulus plan but asked for some of the money after it was passed because she didn't want her constituents to be disadvantaged when cash was rolling out to other communities.

"Unfortunately, it ended up going to politicians who are politically well-connected to Barack Obama. That's what's wrong with Washington. Too often the money has no connection to merit or where it should go, it goes to the politically connected," Bachmann said.

a shitload of far-right and far-left voters do.

Also, gay people probably care about gay rights - and since "the popular estimate that 10 percent of the male population and 5 to 6 percent of the female population are exclusively or predominately gay/lesbian" - they do matter.




Of course, you add crowne royale, and that 6% lesbian number tends to rise... Wink

"Gay Rights" is a completely inconsequential issue right now compared to the needs of the nation.   

Sorry you fags - the nation is collapsing, we have more important stuff to deal with right now.

so is planned parenthood/abortion stuff.   so is legislation requiring people to carry guns.

so is a lot of other gimmick bullshit that people on BOTH SIDES of the aisle use to get donations and votes from their batshit crazy base.  It's the reality.  Dumb ppl don't understand the economic issues, but they sure do understand the silly, comparatively inconsequential issues.  They get all mad and scream bout things that won't be a concern with a monetary collapse Wink

This is all you really needed to post for us to understand that you're a bigot.

The rest of your 'point of view' is obvious.

You're obviously far superior since you masturbate to hetero porn.

Its called priorities.  The twinks think their issues should dominate the conversation 24/7 regardless of all else going on. 

We need to focus our time on  the economy, not health care, not gays, not green fantasies, not cap and trade, etc. 

The black plague obama has frittered away his presidency on bullshit like DADT, ObamaCare, cap and trade, etc.

actually, the twinks would like it all to be a non issue. It's MB that keeps bringing up the social agenda.
Congrats on winning, Michelle; look how well it did Pat Robertson and Phil Gramm!

By Beth Reinhard
National Journal

Until now, the biggest question looming over the 2012 Republican primary was who would emerge as the leading alternative to the nominal front-runner, Mitt Romney.

We now know the answer to that question: Rick Perry.

Sure, Perry jumped into the race only one day ago and needs to prove he's worthy of the national stage. Yes, Michele Bachmann is the one who boxed Tim Pawlenty out of the race with her triumph in the Iowa Straw Poll on Saturday.

But it is the governor of the great big state of Texas, not the Minnesota congresswoman, who poses the biggest threat to Romney from here on out. That's because Perry boasts that killer combination of assets: the power to grab hold of voters -- which Bachmann shares -- plus a concrete record of creating jobs. It's the rhetoric plus the results, the inspiration layered on top of the perspiration.

(RELATED: Governor Pawlenty vs. Candidate Pawlenty)

The void in Bachmann's resume was laid bare in Thursday's Fox News debate, when she cited the "Light Bulb Freedom of Choice Act'' as one of her biggest accomplishments. In an interview on Sunday with CNN's Candy Crowley, all she could point to was her education reform agenda as a state lawmaker in Minnesota.

"The Republican nominee and the next president of the United States is going to be Rick Perry or Mitt Romney,'' said Fred Malek, a top Republican money man who ran George H.W. Bush's 1992 campaign. "Michele Bachmann has struck a real chord on the issues important to conservatives, but what we need is a governor with proven record of job creation, deficit reduction, and other accomplishments.''

A member of the House has not been crowned a party nominee since James Garfield in 1880. Bachmann's victory in a mock, Midwestern election dominated by the fringes of the Republican Party only served to highlight her narrow appeal. In contrast, both Perry and Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, have won statewide elections with Democratic and independent votes.

(RELATED: Obama's economy—or not?)

Mounting anger with President Obama over the economy's woes makes it unlikely that voters will take another chance on a crowd-rousing lawmaker who lacks executive experience.

"Republicans feel that if we lose the election, we lose the country,'' said Alex Castellanos, a Republican strategist for George W. Bush who advised Romney's 2008 campaign. "We are not going to nominate somebody who has no chance of winning enough votes to defeat Barack Obama.''

The Romney-Perry showdown seemed unlikely months ago, but came to the fore in recent weeks as Pawlenty continued to fizzle and Perry lined up donors and strategists. Pawlenty's exit on Sunday and Perry's announcement on Saturday just made the two-man race official.

Bachmann defeated Pawlenty because she managed to make him look weak, a feat she is unlikely to engineer with the swaggering three-term governor of Texas.

(RELATED: President Obama's path to reelection narrows)

As for the rest of the field, few people outside of Jon Huntsman's campaign can envision his path to the nomination. Ron Paul is a cult figure, not a party standard-bearer. Rick Santorum beat expectations in the straw poll, but his main role in the race has been to needle the other candidates.

The next potential watershed in the rapidly changing race will be the debate sponsored by NBC News and Politico in Simi Valley, Calif., the first time Perry will be lined up next to his rivals on national television. Two more debates in two weeks, both in Florida, will keep the candidates on their toes.

"The real question for Perry is how he adjusts to being an official presidential candidate, because it's unlike anything else,'' said Republican strategist Jim Dyke. "It exposes candidates in ways they couldn't have fathomed or trained for. It's something you can't teach.''

Romney has already started pivoting toward Perry in recent days, emphasizing his success as a corporate executive above all else. Perry can't point to experience in the private sector. While Romney would never have wished for a challenger as potentially formidable as Perry, he will be a much tougher nominee in the general election if he is able to defeat Perry, just as Obama was strengthened by his epic primary battle with Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2008.

If Obama could get elected, anyone can. 

And if its Romney v. Perry - at this point I think I am going for Romney.
