The Republican Party has become a party more and more image driven by two women, who have become highly controversial by their words and actions.
Sarah Palin, former Alaska Governor and 2008 Vice Presidential nominee, and Michele Bachmann, Minnesota Congresswoman, have both contributed to an atmosphere of deceit, lies, fear mongering, confrontation, and extreme right wing propaganda!
Sarah Palin talked about “death panels”, and Michele Bachmann conjured up images of “internment camps”. Both women have done everything possible in the past two years to divide America, and to distort and destroy the Presidency of Barack Obama by any means necessary, showing an amazing lack of ethics in their false attacks, and showing no concern or solutions for the many domestic problems we face!
Both women also have shown an unbelievable lack of understanding of our basic civil liberties, and a belligerent attitude toward other nations. It could be said that what both have advocated borders on fascism and nativism, marking them as being as dangerous as other fringe spokesmen have been in past periods of American history!
Neither one contributes anything positive in public affairs, but rather sets out to confuse and obstruct!
Seeing pictures and video of the two women together, it makes one think that this is a great opportunity for the Democrats to promote commercials designed to defeat Bachmann for her congressional seat and to undermine the GOP for congressional races and the Presidential campaign of 2012.
While it is great to see more women in American politics, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann are NOT an asset to the Republican Party. Rather, they are an albatross around the Republicans’ necks, but they will offer a great opportunity to the Democratic party nationally, as well as locally.
We will see many commercials starring Sarah and Michelle, and hopefully, we will soon see both disappear on the horizon of American politics! We deserve better than this!
