Amy Myers was on MSNBC’s The Last Word where she showed the world why Rep. Michele Bachmann is afraid to debate her.
Here is the video from The Last Word:
Rep. Michele Bachmann should be afraid to debate Amy Myers. She would lose. By Amy’s own litmus test for political officeholders that, “If you are going to run for office, you’d better know what the basic foundation of this history is,” Bachmann wouldn’t qualify. The problem for Michele Bachmann is that she doesn’t understand the constitution, history, or basic civics.
I am sure that if she really wanted to debate Amy, she could study up a little bit, but when have we ever known a Republican to study anything? The anti-intellectual Republican Party holds education in disdain. In fact, being too educated is a black mark against any would be Republican. The GOP likes their people scared, not smart.
In all seriousness if Bachmann was even a little bit smart instead of ignoring the young lady, she would send her a note encouraging her to following her political ambitions. She could put out a nice statement about how America needs more bright young minds like, Amy. Maybe she could even do a little quiz with her, or do a little something that will take the edge off of this story?
Since we are dealing with a paranoid right wing freak here, none of that will happen. Instead, Bachmann probably sees this as some sort of left wing Obama plot to make her look bad. She probably scoffs and wonders if Amy’s parents aren’t residing in a FEMA camp as we speak, and shudders in dismay as the Manchurian 10th grader puts her Obama indoctrination on full display.
Bachmann probably views Amy Myers as a threat, not an opportunity. Michele Bachmann should be afraid of Amy Myers, as well as all the other 10th graders out there who someday soon will be old enough to vote. If they can see through your bullshit at age 15-16, they aren’t going to be buying it when they step into the voting booth at 18.
Amy Myers vs. Michele Bachmann would be better than any 2012 GOP debate.
It’s too bad that Bachmann is too afraid of a 10th grader to let us see it.
