This is the end of the worst representative in my memory, I'm 67. She literally has done nothing, her record couldn't be more pitiful, she was unable almost always to get a bill out of committee even when most of them were led by her own party. She has passed zero of her own bills and I think 4 that she co signed, And they are like celebrating national acropolis week and sending good tidings to some political program and celebrating Minnesota week. All complete jokes and wasted legislation. This women is a laughing stock in congress including her own party and totally disregardful by both sides of the isle. She elected herself the head of the Teaparty which is much like being president of the Donald Duck club.. She is considered the biggest liar in congress and you will under no circumstance find a bigger hypocrite.

Let me guess: How long will it take Michele Bachmann to send out a mass appeal for donations to fight the evil, hand-picked un-American Pelosi candidate? Graves will certainly have more visibility this time and I bet that the big buck contributors from the fringe right will have to think hard about continuing to pour money into a sinking ship. I don't necessarily support Graves but I absolutely am opposed to Bachmann. How long will it be until her campaign coins a new insulting nickname for her opponent? It's going to be another campaign of "made-up facts" and untruths from the incumbent.

You got to hand it to Graves for his ability to get up, dust himself off, and get right back up to the plate. I love that quality in multi-millionaire limousine liberals who never give their own money away but promise to steal money from everyone else and give it to those who didn't earn it just so they can get elected into positions of power to feed their egos. Special hello to Al Franken. Barack Obama--who with budget plans for massive tax increases on "the rich"--intends to run an $8.1 TRILLION deficit over the next 10 years. That means $8.1 TRILLION in new borrowing and more debt for future generations. Jim Graves supports that. Why doesn't Jim Graves keep $1 million or $2 million of his wealth for himself to live on and give all the rest of his money to the federal government to help pay down the national debt he supports increasing? When Graves gives his own money away, then and only then will I take a closer look at supporting him.

Same old tired, canned, unimaginative rhetoric from Bachmann spokesperson on Graves being a liberal. Mr. Graves has my vote once again.

A candidate who represents up-by-the-bootstraps to success values of individual initiative, determination and hard work versus a candidate who likes to pay lip service to those values, as she holds them up as the model, but in actuality has spent her adult life slurping from one government trough or another -- from county payments for fostering, to family farm subsidies, to paychecks in the State legislature and now the U.S. House.

Do you want the sleight of hand con artist who talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk -- or the real thing?

I guess they have found the extra/missing votes that will go their way ala the Al Franken election. Bachmann is for individual freedom and the Constitution. Graves is for, "What's yours is ours but leave mine alone."

POTTER101 - Everything you say may be true, but alas, you don't get to vote for OR against her.
