Past performance is no guarantee of future results:
Is that the use of the – I’ve never seen the floor used like this. I mean I worked on the Hill, you’re a member, elected member. I’ve never seen politicians come on and say their purpose in life is to say their purpose is to end someone’s political career. To defeat another politician. Isn’t there any minimal, minimal civility left? That somebody like Bachmann – well first of all she’s there. She was elected. Nobody can do anything about that. But there she is saying her purpose in life, right now, is to eliminate a presidency. Do you think that’s good politics? To just talk like that?
