Bachmann: I can 'shred' Obama in debate

Michele Bachmann says she is the only true conservative in the race, and she could "shred" Obama's policies in a debate. What do you think?

    I would actually love her to try. Seeing her be destroyed in a debate would be... satisfying.

    I think that was meant as a not-so-subtle jab at Mitt Romney, who has recently been under increasing criticism for shredding/destroying all official documents from his tenure as governor as part of an apparent cover-up.

    I think she's smoking again. The fact she's able to run as a candidate, just confirms what the world believes... USA is in decline. Only Obama's 2nd term will salvage this country from being destroyed by super-rich slaves (i.e. republican politicians)

    She's smart, but she's a demagogue, egotist and opportunist and as such can only go so far before she relies on the stupidity of her audience to excuse her from substantive assessments and conclusions. And she probably thinks she's seen all Obama can do, so...hahaha!

    Bachmann couldn't shred cabbage with a food processor much less talk in complete sentences.

    That twit couldn't shred her newspaper, let alone Obama. She obviously has an overinflated regard for her own intelligence or a massive lack of regard for Obama's...

    I agree with Bachmann... the real issue is, who is the best candidate to run against BHO. It is time for the candidates to start focusing on this central issue!

    Ha!. In her dreams. She can't remember whether Africa is a continent or country.

    I'm LOLing hysterically!!! She hasn't a grasp for American History. I guess it's commendable that she has high self-esteem.
