ABC's George Stephanopoulos Warns Bachmann: Media Will Investigate Your 23 Foster Children

FOX Nation

ABC News' George Stephanopoulos said the media plans on investigating all 23 of Michele Bachmann's foster children, tries to get her to say she'd eliminate the minimum wage, tries to stir up trouble between her and Palin, and debates her about the founding fathers and slavery.

Stephanopoulos: Finally one—one final question. I think one of the most impressive things that people find in your background is the fact that you and your husband have helped raise 23 foster children and I know you want to shield them but are they prepared and are you prepared for the loss of privacy that comes with the president campaign? And is that something you are concerned about for them?

Bachmann: Well when we were making this momentous decision we sat down for a long time as a family and contemplated what this was meaning and yes, we are ready. We have five wonderful biological children. Our last one is off to college our oldest one is a doctor. And then we had great – a great 23 foster children in our home as well. And as you can imagine and appreciate we’ve tried to keep a good handle on their privacy and we will do that, we will respect their privacy. We are thankful that we had them but we also want to observe their privacy and that of their families.


Wild Thing's comment........

Notice how he uses the word Media instead of admitting HE will be a part of it being the media as well. Like a threat to her.

He was part of the Clinton attack machine during Clinton’s campaign and later in the White House. Stephanopoulus was Clinton's point man on the politics of personal destruction. It was George who came up with—along with James Carville—the famous “Nuts and Sluts” defense.

Stephanopoulus knows exactly how to take out a person through inuendo, smears, half-truths and lies. It's what he did for Clinton. It was his JOB.

The Palinization of Bachmann is under way. And, whatever they can’t find, they’re create.

He better be careful, there is always that past information about his being a heavy pot user and how his crap would even be in his office at the WH. It was written about in Gary Aldrich book " Unlimited Access". about the Clinton years.

Obama has a history wrapped in mystery, hidden and ignored by the MSM while a decent, honorable woman, a U.S. Representative running for her party's presidential nomination, is going to have the life of every child she lovingly helped raise in a foster care program scrutinized and, God forbid, should anything as small as a parking ticket be found on their record, they will be humiliated and held up to the public as 'proof' that Bachmann is somehow 'unfit'. That person will be subject to national public embarrassment. Why? Because his or her foster mother is a conservative Republican running for the GOP presidential nomination and actually has a shot at winning. Frankly, I wish Michele Bachmann had shown more anger at the idea of the media attempting to scrutinize her foster children on the bogus premise that as the (foster) children of a public figure running for high office, they are now 'fair game'.

What a wonderful job the media is doing as a safeguard of American liberty. Don't investigate the relationship between a presidential candidate and a known domestic terrorist who was on the FBIs most wanted list, but do investigate the emails of one conservative female presidential candidate, and the foster children of another.

The candidates should stop pussy-footing around Obama's hidden past. If one of Bachmann's foster or biological children are dragged through the mud, they should go after Barack Obama and demand to know why the man who wants to be re-elected president of the United States has his college records sealed and demand, incessantly, they be revealed. I believe they'll indicate Obama was registered as a foreign student. I would also like to know who paid for his top-tier education. Certainly not his family. We may never see this information but we need to use the pursuit of it to let the MSM know that 'going after' the children of Republican politicians has to stop. Make the case that Obama has never, ever been subject to the slightest amount of scrutiny by the MSM while they gleefully attempt to 'investigate' private citizens that were once foster children under the care of a Republican presidential nominee contender. Make them answer the glaring question: why?

Bachmann and Palin have two things in common the media hates: They're female and conservative. Just like Herman Cain has two things the media hates: He's Black and conservative.

Watch for the media to so everything in its power to destroy Bachmann, Cain, and Palin. They'll lie and fabricate stories to discredit them.

There is an old addage, a good defense is a good offense, if they sit back and react to the attacks like republicans are wont to do, then it will destroy them. But if they start out in a proactive manner then they will beat the media and win the election.

My first reaction to this statement by Stephanopoulos, was that of anger and it remains that way.

It is amazing that those in the Media and on the Left, have the gall to attack something like this.

Here we have a woman, who after raising her own family, sought to extend herself and give less fortunate children an opportunity to have a chance to succeed, that they may not otherwise have had. Similarly Sarah Palin was vilified for keeping a child with Down's Syndrome, for the same reason.

Can anyone tell me why either of these actions is a bad thing or a bad decision?

You can almost bet the farm on the fact that the likes of Stephanopoulos and others on the left would never undertake the responsibilities of raising children who had a disability or were victims of poor parenting.

The level to which the media and the Left will stoop to discredit a Candidate through personal attacks, is almost beyond belief. Forget debating about the issues, get down and dirty on a personal level.

Yet their is a certain segment of the public, I call them, troglodytes, who eat this stuff up, and vote accordingly.

Let these evil pro-abortionist mediaites investigate Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and then the CHILDREN OF GOD and their 12 Tribes of Israel next! If Michelle's 23 kids were all illegals and simply strutted across the Estados Unidos Mexican border she would be aok, eh?

Time to quit pussyfooting around. Go on the attack for once, go after Obama's past and get it out, like why the bogus social security #?

Sean writes: "Yet (there) is a certain segment of the public, I call them, troglodytes, who eat this stuff up, and vote accordingly". To me, these troglydytes are the drones who think "Entertainment Tonight" is a hard news show, "People" and "Us" are news magazines and "Dancing With the Stars" holds more deep significance than a presidential debate or any quality news program. They call themselves "moderates" or "independants" but in fact they tend not to vote unless a party or candidate appeals to something they "can get excited about'". They form a big portion of the "swing voters" and Obama and the Dems know how to "excite" them by appealing to their shallow values. And George Stephanopolous is beneath contempt. George needs to stop insulting my intelligence by presenting himself as "unbiased" and "fair"...

Steponallofus is a Clinton clone, hack self absorbed liberal, what else is ther to know. He and his Ilk will try to destroy any threat to obama, especially if it looks like obama will lose then they take the gloves off.

She better be damn tough.
