  • High schooler challenges Michele Bachmann to Constitution showdown

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_theloo...VuY2hhbGxlbmc-

    A New Jersey high school sophomore has challenged Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) to a constitutional duel in an open letter that is making the rounds on political blogs.

    Bachmann says she's a constitutional conservative and frequently cites the founding document when making arguments against policies or programs she doesn't support, such as the U.S. Census.

    "I have found quite a few of your statements regarding The Constitution of the United States, the quality of public school education and general U.S. civics matters to be factually incorrect, inaccurately applied or grossly distorted," writes Cherry Hill, N.J., high schooler Amy Myers. She concludes: "I, Amy Myers, do hereby challenge Representative Michele Bachmann to a Public Forum Debate and/or Fact Test on The Constitution of the United States, United States History and United States Civics."

    The full letter was posted on CNN's iReport, though we haven't been able to confirm Myers' identity. This may be her blog, where an Amy Myers who says she attends Cherry Hill East high school writes about education policy, Gov. Chris Christie, and her ninth-grade reading assignments.

    This is the entire letter:

    Dear Representative Bachmann,

    My name is Amy Myers. I am a Cherry Hill, New Jersey sophomore attending Cherry Hill High School East. As a typical high school student, I have found quite a few of your statements regarding The Constitution of the United States, the quality of public school education and general U.S. civics matters to be factually incorrect, inaccurately applied or grossly distorted. The frequency and scope of these comments prompted me to write this letter.

    Though I am not in your home district, or even your home state, you are a United States Representative of some prominence who is subject to national media coverage. News outlets and websites across this country profile your causes and viewpoints on a regular basis. As one of a handful of women in Congress, you hold a distinct privilege and responsibility to better represent your gender nationally. The statements you make help to serve an injustice to not only the position of Congresswoman, but women everywhere. Though politically expedient, incorrect comments cast a shadow on your person and by unfortunate proxy, both your supporters and detractors alike often generalize this shadow to women as a whole.

    Rep. Bachmann, the frequent inability you have shown to accurately and factually present even the most basic information about the United States led me to submit the follow challenge, pitting my public education against your advanced legal education:

    I, Amy Myers, do hereby challenge Representative Michele Bachmann to a Public Forum Debate and/or Fact Test on The Constitution of the United States, United States History and United States Civics.

    Hopefully, we will be able to meet for such an event, as it would prove to be enlightening.

    Sincerely yours,
    Amy Myers

    Hilarious, although I think that a 10th grader should try for more of a challenge instead of challenging someone as colossally ignorant as Bachmann.

      No doubt the 10th grader would win (I'm talking about the actual 10th grader, not taking a shot at Bauchmann)

        Well, if the 10th grader is as smart as you appear to believe she is, it'd probably be equally entertaining for her to debate obama. His grasp of the Constitution is just as lacking.

            Nah, it would be better off challenging the messiah on U.S. history and U.S. geography as he seems to think that there are more than 57 States within the U.S.

                Has Obama gone around and flaunted himself as part of the "US Geography Caucus" in the government and made many, many speeches demanding that we treat US Geography with more a strict interpretation.....?
                in the same way Bachmann has done with the Constitution ?

                gaffes are on thing. All politicians will make them.
                But to be a "darling of the Tea Party" and display fundamental misunderstandings of the Constitution are way more than a "gaffe"

                funny how the conservatives never understand that, on this forum.

                Someone will bring up Gingrich's infidelity.... and they will immediately talk about Clinton, as if it were the same thing
                Bring up Bachmann, or Palin and Constitutional gaffes.... and they love talking about the "57 states" slip, as if it were the same thing

                    That's because he is a fool and doesn't understand geography. Jeesh.........

                    How so? When did demonstrate any misunderstanding of the constitution?

                    True enough. Gingrich never did get head from an 18-year-old kid while sitting behind the Resolute. It isn't the same - Newt can't hold a candle (or cigar as it happens) to Slick Willie.

                    Except that your Messiah is a constutional scholar. Seems if that education he received is real he's be a bit smarter than that.

                      Because she is a republican.

                        True, it is much closer to compare Newt to John Edwards, that is the comparison that needs to be made.

                          I was trying to point out that being a married politician and having an affair is bad....
                          but being a "family values" politician and engaging in such behavior is a different animal.

                          Much the same that political gaffes are one thing...
                          But displaying a lack of understanding of the Constitution from a "Tea Party Patriot" who often touts her allegiance to it - is different

                            Speaking of which, research current John Ensign news, and the so called "C street group" that he is a part of, it's pretty entertaining.
