How low can progressive/liberals go?

Now the desperate progressive left wing media is going to try to smear Bachman by harassing their foster kids.

ABC News' George Stephanopoulos said the media plans on investigating all 23 of Michele Bachmann's foster children, tries to get her to say she'd eliminate the minimum wage, tries to stir up trouble between her and Palin, and debates her about the founding fathers and slavery.



==========================================================================

Stephanopoulos: Finally one—one final question. I think one of the most impressive things that people find in your background is the fact that you and your husband have helped raise 23 foster children and I know you want to shield them but are they prepared and are you prepared for the loss of privacy that comes with the president campaign? And is that something you are concerned about for them?


Bachmann: Well when we were making this momentous decision we sat down for a long time as a family and contemplated what this was meaning and yes, we are ready. We have five wonderful biological children. Our last one is off to college our oldest one is a doctor. And then we had great – a great 23 foster children in our home as well. And as you can imagine and appreciate we’ve tried to keep a good handle on their privacy and we will do that, we will respect their privacy. We are thankful that we had them but we also want to observe their privacy and that of their families.

  • The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. I would expect them to treat her with the same (dis)respect they treated the Palin family with.  Business as usual.  At least Michelle Obama knows that they have 'help from the media' (her words, not mine).

  • Fox states:
    ABC News' George Stephanopoulos said the media plans on investigating all 23 of Michele Bachmann's foster children, tries to get her to say she'd eliminate the minimum wage, tries to stir up trouble between her and Palin, and debates her about the founding fathers and slavery.

    What was actually said:

    Finally one—one final question. I think one of the most impressive things that people find in your background is the fact that you and your husband have helped raise 23 foster children and I know you want to shield them but are they prepared and are you prepared for the loss of privacy that comes with the president campaign? And is that something you are concerned about for them?

    If you can't figure out that something was really lost in translation here then I have to question your reading comprehension skills...

    Right because no low shots were taken at the Obama's when he ran for president. And no one takes shots at his family now.

    What delusional world is this that you live in?

    I don't live in delusion.  I don't take shots at his wife or his kids.  I criticize him because he works for me (and you and everyone else that lives in this country).  Obama along with my local and state and federal elected officials.  Employers are supposed to watch their employees.  Just because you want to hand out free passes doesn't mean that the rest of us do.
