This will probably aggravate some folks, but, in general, I prefer that leaders be strong conservative men, and if they’re Christian men, that’s even better. I don’t usually like to see women in positions of political power. That’s just me, and I know I’m not the only one who feels this way, though many who do probably won’t admit it publicly.
That being said, I must say that I am happy to see the refreshing boldness of the truly conservative Republican Congressman Michele Bachman of Minnesota, who has actually earned the title of Congressman by really representing the people of her state. No, I’m not politically correct; she’s a Congressman in my book, period. Just as “man” and “mankind” includes women, so a congressman can be female. I’m old-fashioned that way.
Michele Bachmann takes strong stands against wasteful government spending and has cosponsored a bill to reduce the deficit and promote real economic recovery. She has introduced four pieces of legislation that would free up our access to our own energy sources here in America, while at the same time continuing to invest in the search for effective alternative energy sources. She’s pro-life and supports our right to keep and bear arms. The NRA likes her. And, she supports the repeal of the grossly unconstitutional health care deform bill.
Congressman Bachmann jumped up another notch in my mind this week when Dr. Michael Savage had her on his show to talk about the United States and the world’s response to Israel stopping the group of Turkish ships that attempted to break Israel’s very legitimate blockade of Hamas-controlled Gaza.
She pointed out that this was an obvious test by the “radical, shariah-compliant terrorist types” to see what kind of response they would get from not just Israel, but the United States, as well. She pointed out that they learned that the United States did not stand by our ally Israel.
Instead, Washington condemned Israel’s defending of its blockade, which, in turn, is a defense of Israel’s right to exist, in my opinion. The blockade is in place to keep Muslim terrorists from arming up Gaza.
Michele Bachmann went on to point out that American terrorist Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn were also involved in backing this flotilla. And, I might add, so is the Muslim Imam who is behind the proposed Ground Zero mosque.
It was just really good to hear a politician, and a woman at that, speak with such a backbone. She said it remains to be seen if we’re going to stand by Israel or abandon them. There will be more tests. And, these Jewish-hating Muslims will never be satisfied with any concession. Their ultimate desire is to see all Jewish people removed from the face of the earth.
Congressman Bachmann concludes her words on Israel to Dr. Michael Savage with this ,
“We need to really ask our question now. Will the United States man up? Will we man-up—will we stand by our ally Israel, and will we deliver some tough love to the thugs out there, or won’t we? And, unfortunately, the tepid response of the United States, I think, sends yet one more signal from the Obama administration of weakness when it comes to our friend, Israel.”
Right on, Michele Bachmann! You’re a breath of fresh air, and Minnesota is blessed to have you.
