Michele Bachmann, former presidential candidate, now pumps gas in Lino Lakes

Constituents got to talk politics with Michele while she filled up their tanks. Talk about pain at the pump!
How the mighty have fallen!

Less than a year removed from being a leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination, Michele Bachmann is now working at a Lino Lakes gas station.

Apparently, demand for Marcus Bachmann's anti-gay therapy ain't what it used to be. Either that or the couple needs the extra income to pay down some of the massive debt Michele incurred during her ill-fated bid for the GOP nomination.

In seriousness, Michele was pumpin' gas as part of an effort to let Minnesota voters know she hasn't forgotten about them, otherwise known as her two-day "energy tour" through the Sixth Congressional District.

While on the campaign trail, Bachmann pledged to bring per-gallon gas prices down to $2 through a combination of opening the country's Strategic Petroleum Reserve and stimulating domestic production.

Today, she talked about her plan at Lino's Fast Break Station while giving constituents the full-service treatment. Talk about pain at the pump...

  An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you must write much more on this topic, it may well not be a taboo subject but typically folks are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

Come on.  She's a congresswoman.  Show some respect and use her proper title:

She was giving "full service treatment" in Lino Lakes? Given Marcus' history I woulda bet it'd happen around Loring Park.

It is way too easy to manipulate the emotions of dimwits with a bunch of simplistic talk on gas prices.

She is dumber than a doorknob... we already export more oil than we import.  How about stopping that and selling that oil here...

Actually this is a very common misconception.  The U.S. is a net exporter of fuel, not oil.  The reason is our capacity for oil refining (a very capital and skill intensive process) is much greater than most countries, so it makes more sense for us to import a bunch of oil, refine it, and then export it as gasoline.  The reason we pay so much less for our gas than our neighbors to the north or across the pond is partly because of taxes, but also because the profits from refining actually help subsidize the price of gas.  

It's very easy to mistake the phrase "the U.S. is a net exporter of fuel" for the phrase "the U.S. is a net exporter of oil" but the two are very different.
