    Well, sure, don’t you remember the 92nd Amendment says “Congress shall make no law restricting the ability of crooked financial institutions to bilk middle-class Americans and ruin them financially?” Bachmann wrote that one herself.

    As I so clearly and correctly recall, she and her colleagues in Congress have screamed “No more bailouts!” for the past 2 years. As I understand it, the Dodd-Frank law prevents another government bailout. I guess she and her friends in the GOP want to have it both ways. They want to rail against government bailouts of the financial industry while trying to dismantle legislation that is meant to prevent future government bailouts of Big Business.

    It’s no mystery why Bachmann is so confused on the issues. I read on the Minnesota Independent site last year that Bachmann missed more House sessions than any other member. I also recall that she spent so much time attending rw events that I wondered how it was possible for her to know about any legislation that was being discussed in the H. of. Rs.

    DeMint also missed a lot of time in the Senate last year. When he was trashing the START Treaty in December, he never mentioned that he was on the Senate committee that voted to send the treaty to the floor. He also never mentioned that he missed the majority of the committee meetings because he was out fundraising instead of doing his job.

    OMD:

    Hahah, I guessed I missed that one. But it sounds like the GOP policy, for sure.
