“I like Congresswoman Bachmann. I’ve campaigned for her. I respect her. But her record of accomplishment in Congress is non-existent, it’s non-existent.

He then lists his accomplishments and says he has the “record of toughness” of all the candidates eyeing the GOP nomination. He set a record for vetoes, which I guess is good stuff for the Party of No. He also took more money out of the budget using executive powers than all governors in Minnesota combined. So don’t you question his authority!

“Instead of negativity, I want to focus on my accomplishments,” she said. “People can count on me as a fighter; I am proud of my record of fighting with resolve, and without apology, for our free markets, for sane fiscal policies, and in opposition to the advancement of the big government left.”
Bam! That’s how it’s done, son!
Message to T-Paw: Soft jab. Don’t forget that she’s been around a lot longer. This ain’t her first time at the rodeo. To really catch her, you’ll have to do it live. She doesn’t have the time to calculate a response. That’s her Achilles’ Heel. If all else fails, you can tell her she’s sexy. Just kidding.
