Team Pawlenty hammers "pain in the ass" Bachmann, Part 2

Thumbnail image for bachmann pawlenty 2shot.jpg
Not so happy together.
On the record, Tim Pawlenty's people say everything's hunky dory with fellow Minnesotan Michele Bachmann, even though she leads him in most GOP presidential polls despite his carefully planned assault on the White House.

"Any suggestion that this isn't a good relationship built on mutual respect is flat wrong," Pawlenty spokesman Alex Conant tells Politico.

"This is really a referendum on Barack Obama," Bachmann tells Fox News.

Bunk. It's time for some political smash mouth. T-Paw's allies are yet again calling her "a pain in the ass," and say Pawlenty wants to "rip her lungs out."

Pawlenty's pain in the ass.
"She's sure a pain in the ass," one Pawlenty insider said. "Three months ago we were hoping Michele was just a flash in the pan so, no doubt, we've had to sober up around the possibility that she could get in and beat him...Certainly it's a blow to the gut."

Here's a former education department official during the Pawlenty administration:

"We actually kept her at arms' length because if you're dealing with a bomb thrower, it was very precarious building this coalition of folks and earning the trust of the public."

Former state House Speaker Steve Sviggum, a Pawlenty backer, went on the record:

"A team player Michele Bachmann is not," he says. "Even though the ball's being moved ahead in the direction that she would like to go, if it's not the Hail Mary pass all the way down the field it's not good enough. I have a hard time with those people who want to all or nothing in life because, usually, they end up getting nothing."

Wanting to rip the lungs out of a pain-in-the-ass bomb thrower is hardly the mark of a good relationship. And Pawlenty better remember this: God's on Bachmann's side.

It's a big mistake to underestimate the appeal olf either Bachman or Palin.  It' getting easier to sell ignorance and racism to "patriotic Americans" Remember Hitler and what he sold to the german intelligent people.

Kirk, I know you're an insane troll and shouldn't be needlessly provoked, but here goes anyway:

Poor women are more likely to get abortions than non-poor women. Black women are more likely to be poor than white women. Therefore, black women will have a higher abortion rate than white women. In other words, it's not Planned Parenthood's fault that black people are disproportionately impoverished.

Yes, more black fetuses have been terminated in America than black people were killed by the KKK. But Planned Parenthood provides services with the goal of bettering the lives of women and families of all colors, and the KKK sought to keep blacks down through terrorism, intimidation, and sometimes murder. They didn't kill more blacks because they didn't have to--just killing a few in public places was enough to achieve their ends.

It blows my mind that someone who claims to be black (yes, I'm a bit doubtful) would have such a warped sense of black history. But as I mentioned before, you are an insane internet troll.

Your Headline is wrong, deceptive, and a flat out lie.

If you read down, you will see - "She's sure a pain in the ass," one Pawlenty insider said"and a statement from a former education department official?Still not Tim.And a statement from a former state House Speaker, Steve Sviggum?Still not Tim!

In fact, Pawlenty said nothing of the sort.

Did the mush minded liberals catch any of that?

Careful, devious liberals like Hart Von Douchebag will next be telling you; "look closely at this coin as it spins".

If true then Team Pawlenty has forgotten the Reagan Rule "Don't talk about other politicians within your own Party". Obama and Klobuchar have given us 9% unemployment, a double dip drop in housing, massive debts, a 850 billion stimulus spent on Public employee's and no JOBS! Team Pawlenty better wake up, Bachmann is not the problem OBAMA - Klobuchar are!

Perfert reason to fire all public school teachers for being inept!

FDR rounded up American Citizens and put them into concentration camps! I don't think bush or cheny did that?

JFK & LBJ had a plan to launch terrorist attacks against US Citizens to get the go ahead on invading Cuba! JFK launched the Vietnam war to cover his sorry ass. Too bad for the 56,000 dead americans soldiers that Kennedy killed.

When will the liberal lamestream media cover the paradise America was under George W. Bush and how its fallen into Socialist Atheist Islamofacist decay under Obama?   You'd have to be a real idiot to not realize that TARP and the subprime meltdown happened on Obama's watch.   Obviously everything is Obama's fault in the world.  Here are the facts about the economy in Tea Party Republican world:   1)  Unemployment was at 0% when Obama became President.    2)   Taxes under Obama are the highest they have ever been in the history of world forever and ever amen.   3)   Huffing glue is the only way to learn these facts.   All Tea Party Republicans are constantly huffing glue.   4)  George W. Bush is so awesome and he never screwed up anything ever.

You forgot about the price of gas.  This effects the poor the most, because it impacts the cost of everything.

But wait, that would be Obama's fault.

The liberals and the media sure did blame Bush the last time it hit this price.Hmmm...

This is nothing more than liberal media trying to pick the GOP candidate.  They want someone beatable, and they're DEATHLY AFRAID of Bachmann.   They would prefer Mitt Romney, because it would take the sting out of Obama and his Obamacare, and that pissed a lot of people off.  (cause Mitt did the same in MA.)

And how are any of these candidates news anyhow. 

Your 100% right, the real issues are not who's running in the Republican Primary.   HOW IN THE f**ck DOES THAT IMPACT ANY OF YOUR LIVES TODAY AND NOW?The real issues are- The Numbers of the unemployed.  The poor manufacturing data that just came out.  The poor private sector job growth data that just came out. The price of food.  The price of clothing.  The price of heating and cooling our home.  The Dollar index is nearing a ten year low.Exploding trade deficits. Soaring National deficit. (increased by 40% under obama)How come soaring healthcare cost are no longer a issue?How come the costs of war is no longer an issue?

But hey, any kind of diversion they can through out there, they will.Mush minded liberals are so easy to get off track from real issues.   So dumb, and easily distracted.Kinda suprised the liberal media isnt using shiny objects.

Klouchar your a bitch! Unemployment was 5.4% under Bush. Obama's Policy to spend a trillion to keep unemployment under 8% FAILED. Obama started a third illegal war in Libya. Obama has been president going on three years (bush is retired and your bush bashing is tiresome and irrelevant). Obama-Klobuchar-Bush are old news. We need jobs now. Obama-Klobuchar allow 11,000,000,000 to 18,000,000 illegal's to hold jobs that can go to legal residents. Obama-Klobuchar are fighting E-Verify that is 99.8% effective. Obama-Klobuchar are fighting the Pickens Plan to get us the hell off of middle eastern oil. Obama-klobuchar got millions from GE who got tax credits and didn't pay taxes. Wake up you idiot. Cancel all government visa's for foreign workers (h1, h2, l23, etc) until unemployment is under 5%).

Hey Kirk, not to call you a stupid racist punk or anything but I'm still waiting on your response to one of my earlier questions.   You claimed that liberals are trying to wage a holocaust on Black people via planned parenthood.  I'm just curious if you can explain why 90% of Black votes vote for the pro-Black Holocaust party?   Please make your response as stupid and illogical as possible, you are a Tea Party Republican after all.   We all know how important Black people and civil rights are to you guys.

Thank you for pointing out what really matters in America today.  That's why Tea Party Republicans have been so busy with issues that really matter.   Think of all the jobs we have created with the issues Tea Party Republicans focus on 

1)   Obama's birth certificate.   Donald Trump hired several investigators that turned on some fantastic information about Obama and where he was born. 2)   Gays can't get married.   This is key to the Republican jobs plan.   Because being bigots creates jobs.  How?  Magic.3)  Ending Medicare.    Think how many people will be needed to shovel up the dead bodies of old people.   That's nothing but a growth industry. 

Also its perfectly sane to blame Obama for high gas prices.   He is from Chicago where they have tons of oil.  High gas prices benefit the Chicago Oil companies who are big contributors to Obama's campaign.   Everyone knows that the Democrats are in the pocket of big oil.   Look up who donates to what politicians people!   Then you will know what party is keeping oil prices high.

TO the fruit calling himself Michele Backmann: The democrats that controlled NOLA for last 30 years (since LBJ and the last flood) cheated and stole money from the construction of water way dams. Your an idiot. JFK failed in the bay of pigs and launched Vietnam to cover his tracks. I'm glad LBJ had him done in dallas. Your lame logic lays the fault on Clinton but you are too stupid to see that. If he had taken action after the 1st bombing of World Trade Center then 9/11 might not have happened.

If you want obama to take credit for 10 years of work then Nixon was president when we landed on the moon. Nixon got us to the moooooon foool not JFK who was dead. The seals shot osama in the eye NOT obama!  Obama is only a talker, destroyer and blamer. WHERE are the JOBS! Obama said 850 Billion and unemployment will stay under 8%. Biden has spouted that for the last two years. Obama sucks period! He is the lamest, most inexperienced person in any room that he stands.

Bush Bashing is tiresome says the idiot who just bashed JFK.    JFK was a war hero who prevented war with Russia.   What was Bush's biggest accomplishment?   He almost destroyed the city of New Orleans?   He allowed 9/11 to happen?  (Clinton had the World Trade Center get attacked too.  All he did was capture the guy that did it and put him in prison.  Know his name?   Me either, that should have been the fate of a loser like Bin Laden but we had an idiot Republican in charge.)     He let Osama Bin Laden escape justice until a real man had him shot in the left eye?   TARP?    What was shrub's biggest accomplishment Mr. Historian?

From the just-released PPP poll of Minnesotans:"Amy Klobuchar continues to rank as one of the most popular Senators in the country and looks safe for reelection next year no matter who the Republicans run against her."

and:"Klobuchar's one of the safest Senators in the country up for reelection next year"

It's amazing that everything that you bitch about is happening with Republicans in control of the US House and nearly half the US Senate, not to mention control of the MN House and Senate. Weren't the Republicans elected to create jobs? What is Bachmann doing to create jobs? How about Cravaack?

This is all the fault of the Kennedys and FDR.   Priceless.  Seriously it would be funny how stupid you Republicans are if it wasn't so sad.     Kirk you didn't answer my question though, now you are just repeating your stupid nonsense.   If the Democrats are so racist why do they get 95% of the Black Vote, 67% of the Latino vote, 62% of the Asian vote, and 78% of the Jewish vote?   I just don't think many sane people buy your premise that support for Planned Parenthood equals support for Black Holocaust.   I think most people aren't complete idiots like you and realize that Planned Parenthood is more about good healthcare for people in need and not abortions.  Then again I'm sure you know more than a doctor Kirk.   I do want to applaud you and MN Voter though for knowing a previous President besides Ronald Reagan.

Just to remind folks that Joe Kennedy and the Kennedy clan supported eugenics in the 30's & 40's. Joe had his daughter institutionalized and didn't care a twit about her. Obama follows this up with giving granny an aspirin for old age. Ha!

Eisenhower actually had the first civil rights plan up for a vote but was blocked in the senate by then majority leader LBJ who the dems now credit. Unbelievable that so many minorities don't read up Eisenhower who integrated the military, the presidential administration and government. LBJ was able to pass the civil rights law - only with Republican Votes. Many democrats voted against it. Wake up people. You are all being used by the evil anti-christian, anti-jewish, anti-family, anti-freedom party of Democrats.

I'M A BLACK MAN YOU FLIPPING IDIOT!!!!!Ya, "I'm racist" towards blacks.   The liberals are right about Michelle, you truly are dumb.

And I never said it, the founder of Planned Parenthood (Margret Sanger) did.  She sought to contain the “inferior” races through "segregation, sterilization, birth control and abortion". Sanger built the ABCL (American Birth Control League) and, ultimately, Planned Parenthood, on the ideas and resources of the eugenics movement.  Sanger nonetheless immersed herself in "Malthusian eugenics".Look up "Malthusian eugenics & Margret Sanger" Michelle.

Hey Michelle, How do you suppose Planned Parenthood Celebrates Black History Month?Blacks make up like 12% of the U.S. population, and over 35% of the Abortions performed.  Planned Parenthood killed many more blacks than the K.K.K. ever did.Who supports Planned Parenthood?Who supports Abortion?Who opposed the civil rights movement (rep or dem)?Which political party actually had a member of the K.K.K. in it for 60 years?Which party INSISTS that people of color be recognized by the color of their skin (segregation), and has formed all the recent government programs to do so. 

Sorry do get so far off the topic of this article, but Michelle just slapped me in my black face.

Actually, MN Voter used to claim that gas prices were $5/gal. I'm shocked that he hasn't given Obama and Klobuchar credit for the drop in price down to $4.

Of course, high gas prices means (to a wingnut) that we should continue to give away billions in federal subsidies to the oil companies. The Democrats tried to end this 'socialist giveaway', but the Republicans voted it down.

MN Voter you might be the stupidest human being alive.  I don't need to go back to the 1950s to prove my point idiot.    I rely on facts and logic.   You do realize how much money Oil & Gas companies give politicians is easy to research.   You don't have to go back to the Kennedys and talk about nonsense.  You can actually go to Open Secrets and just read about campaign donations.   I know its hard to read when you have a tiny brain but you should try it or you sound stupid all the time like Kirk. 

Oil & Gas

This industry, which includes multinational and independent oil and gas producers and refiners, natural gas pipeline companies, gasoline service stations and fuel oil dealers, has long enjoyed a history of strong influence in Washington. Individuals and political action committees affiliated with oil and gas companies have donated $238.7 million to candidates and parties since the 1990 election cycle, 75 percent of which has gone to Republicans.

Thank you open secrets.  

Since you and Kirk are so smart about the economy and such please explain to me why capitalist companies spend money.    If you answered spend a dollar to make two dollars congrats you might be smarter than a 5th grader.   Since high gas prices would benefit oil and gas companies which political party is working to benefit oil and gas companies?    If you said the Democrats well you are a brainless Tea Party Republican.     

P.S.   Gas prices are down like $0.40 since Obama had Osama killed.    Will you idiots give him credit for that or do you have more nonsensical lunacy?

I also forgot to mention Senator Rockefellor of Standard Oil Fame. His Oil Trust fund has bought many democratic seats. DFL stands for Dam full of liberal oil! The Kennedy's were funded in their trust by Kodiak Oil for a generation. It still pays them big time. If Obama wanted lower gas prices he can get them down to 75 cents a gallon! Of course he is so smart that he can't figure it out. I know the answer and can.

Maybe I will run against Kloubchar as she is dead fish. Klobuchar might as well ask Jack Prescott for a job as a bankruptcy attorney - she will need the job and has the perfect resume!

1) Obama prolonged this idiot discussion on his birth certificate for politcal talking points because he doesnt' care about American Jobs. You lump tea party, republicans and anyone who disagrees with you together - so all democrats are ted kasinkies, socialists communists like klobuchar?2) Only the Dems want abortion on demand, sex changes on demand but not circumcision in SF? The communist Party of Democrats talk about keeping their hands off their bodies but sure don't mind grapping my body. Fuck you SF - I can't wait for the big quake.3) Obama - Klobuchar's medicare plan is to let it blow up in 8 years. NO Medicare for anyone then. Ryans plan actuallys increased Medicare and changed it to follow the congressional plan - same as Obama who immediately demagouged it. Still Obama and klobuchar have no plan but for old folks to starve and die. Give them an aspirin.

Obama Closed the gulf and drove the oil rigs to other countries. Obama is threatening to close all federal lands in western states to drilling. Obama said we needed higher gas prices. GE (solar) didn't pay taxes because they are major play to pay contributors to Obama and Klobuchar.
