Michele Bachmann Analyzes The Country’s Ills: We Have Too Much Socialism

Michele Bachmann appeared in a pre-recorded interview with Sean Hannity on tonight’s Hannity show for several minutes of what amounted to a campaign infomercial. Bachmann, crazy as ever, announced that “what’s wrong with the United States today” is that “we have too much socialism.” Then she announced that she is the person who can save the country. Hannity, of course, didn’t challenge a word.

Michele Bachmann’s Extremism Gets Warm Reception From Neil Cavuto

On Your World yesterday (11/3/11), Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann spoke about everyone having "skin in the game" when it comes to paying taxes. That was her justification for her stance on the Earned Income Tax Credit. She said "I would do away with the EITC. If a person has $3 in income, they would be subject to something." But according to Think Progress, the EITC kept 3 million children out of poverty last year. But that didn’t seem to matter to host Neil Cavuto. He said he understood that “there’s something to be said” for everyone having “skin in the game” but asked how she’d accomplish her goal.

From Rick Perry’s Campaign To Fox News’ Website

Greta Van Susteren Touts Her Show’s Balanced Guest List – Of Six Republicans And One Democrat!

Greta Van Susteren announced on her show last night, “All the big names from both sides are here to go On The Record” to discuss President Obama’s address to Congress. Apparently, there’s only one “big name” in the Democratic Party – Rep. Robert Andrews of New Jersey. He was “balanced” by six Republicans, including three presidential candidates: Michele Bachmann, Jon Huntsman and Rick Santorum. Plus, Rep. Paul Ryan, Gov. Nikki Haley and Republican House whip Kevin McCarthy were on hand. Six Republicans to one Democrat? Just another example of Fox News' idea of "fair and balanced."

The Five’s Greg Gutfeld Would Drill For Oil In The Everglades: “It’s Just A Big Swamp”

GOP Candidate Michele Bachmann set tongues a-flutter this past weekend all across Florida and the nation while giving a stump speech in Sarasota. Bachmann insisted that we should be drilling for oil in the Everglades to reduce ‘Merka’s dependence on foreign oil. At the risk of indentifying my location (you’ve not read my hate mail) I live on the very eastern edge of the Everglades. In fact, my home was once part of the Everglades, as was most of southern Florida at one time. The history of this state can’t be written without touching upon the utter ecological destruction caused to Florida when Napoleon Bonaparte Broward decided to drain the swamp back at the turn of the last century. Broward famously compared the Everglades to the Chicago of 60 years previous, which had been swampland before it was reclaimed from Lake Michigan. However, very little was known about the Everglades in the early 1900s. Much has been learned about the fragility of the ecosystem—from Lake Okeechobee south—since then, especially after Marjory Stoneman Douglas published “The Everglades: River of Grass” in 1947. Since then environmentalists, governors, and presidents have tried to reverse the effects of what Broward’s development wrought.* President Nixon cancelled a proposed airport project that would have been built in the middle of the Everglades, while President George W. Bush cancelled all Everglades oil drilling permits while he was in office. However, The Five’s Greg Gutfeld knows better than any of us. Watch this exchange between Gutfeld and Bob Beckel:
