Well, it looks like all of the potential Republican presidential contenders came out to kiss the boots of Americans for Prosperity's Tim Phillips tonight. You've got to love what they called this event -- the Summit on Federal Spending & Job Creation. Or in other words, Republicans reciting their conservative wish lists to continue slashing and burning the government and finishing off what's left of the middle class in America.
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann was the final speaker at the event, which included Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, former Senator Rick Santorum, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and syndicated columnist, radio talk-show host and Tea Partying presidential candidate Herman Cain.
After telling the audience about her wish list for what the Republicans would like to do if they "win the trifecta" of getting both houses of Congress back and the White House, Bachmann proclaimed that she'd like to see the Republicans "pass a mother of all repeal bills" which in her words, "should take committed Constitutional conservatives about a long weekend to get it done."
Michele Bachmann's lovely list she compiled for America is Tim Phillips and his astroturf Americans for Prosperity and their rich corporate donors' wet dream, but other than in wingnut world, that little wish list of hers doesn't work out so well for the peons.
