Oh I could fix all our problems too...but we wouldn't have a constitution left once I was done. oh, and most of congress would be dead, in exile or in a jail cell, as would half of SCOTUS and damn near ALL of wall street.

But the budget would be balanced, the war on drugs would be over, and the patriot act would be gone. Gitmo would be closed. troops would be home from afghanistan, iraq and we wouldn't be dropping bombs on libya. companies would BLEED for moving jobs overseas. RIAA would be kicked in the balls repeatedly until they stopped being assholes. Net Neutrality would be a f*cking constitutional amendment and Comcast's CEO would be scrubbing toilets in a federal prison.

I figure I'd be assassinated by my third year in office.

In fairness, if "all that is wrong" is a lack of "batsh*t crazy" in the whitehouse, as her and the teabaggers believe, then she could have that fixed in the first few seconds.

So democracy is the only thing standing in the way of improving the country?

do you want democracy or do you want efficiency? Because it's one or the other.

Of course she can do it in only one term. After she's done, there won't be a US left, so there will be no valid Presidency to have a second term in.
 
2011-04-11 01:37:51 PM
Why the hell does Bachmann think that fixing terns will help anything, other than reducing their population?

/no I'm sure I read it correctly.
 
2011-04-11 01:42:39 PM
Well, it did only take Obama 2 years to completely screw it up. Of course, fixing it will probably be harder.
 
2011-04-11 01:56:37 PM
Look! If Obama thinks he can fix 8 years of herpaderp in 16, then clearly Michelle can fix 2 years of derpaherp in 4.

I'm super-derpressed today.

This is all predicated on the preposterous idea that she'd win the presidency in the first place.
 
2011-04-11 02:39:25 PM
I she would run with Fred Turner as her running mate, they could take care of business by working overtime.
 
2011-04-11 02:40:22 PM
Holy crap--she's got hot woman crazy syndrome. She's hot and nuts. She should just move to LA and be a cum dumpster like the lot of them. Making political decisions? She is nuts.

She's really not hot. Far above average for a politician, but that's not saying much.
 
2011-04-11 02:43:14 PM
I think about the only promise she could keep is the not getting re-elected one.

More Americans bother to vote for American Idol than do in general elections, so that sounds like a fair assessment.
 
2011-04-11 02:44:38 PM
I'm sure simpletons like her and like her supporters truly believe this to be possible. That's why maybe it's not a great idea to either elect a simpleton or to let them dominate quite as much of the conversation as they tend to.

2 possibilities here: You're joking, or you think everything was just hunky-dory in the ol'd US of A when Obama took office.

Either way, I LOL'd.

Yeah, that broad is all kinds of farking whacko. Of course, that about sums up all of the Teabaggers.

Maybe if we lowered the legal voting age to 11 that might help?

Then again, maybe not...

I would like a subscription to your newsletter some of your campaign literature.

Well of course she can. You can do anything you put your mind to. You just have to believe and roll up your sleeves. You have to get your hands a little dirty, lead by example, maximize innovation, and support the children's dreams.

Radical change does.not.happen. in a representative republic.
 
2011-04-11 02:46:56 PM
I think calling her a "One term president" is being a bit generous myself.
 
2011-04-11 02:46:57 PM
Perhaps she could do well in a Pied Piper sort of role, where she gets lots of people like her to follow her, then we can lead her (and them) on to a large-payload rocket (sponsored by a private company. We then launch the rocket into the sun.

She said she intends to return many times to Iowa, where political insiders say her strength would lie with home-schoolers, abortion opponents, supporters of religious liberty, and tea party activists.

Until politicians stop the blatant pandering to these narrow-minded "social conservatives" things will never improve.

Of course, they don't want to throw away those nice, easy votes.
 
2011-04-11 02:50:21 PM
Remember people on the left:

A) It's no fair making fun of her!!!

B) And no Republicans even like her in the first place!

I love how people on the right so vehemently defend their politicians in one breadth but refuse to say they support them in the next.

If we cut NPR and Panned Parenthood by 600000% I think we can get there!!!!


I believe that is the GOP plan.
