Migraines a deal breaker for Bachmann?

(CNN) – Rep. Michele Bachmann responded Tuesday to a report that the presidential candidate frequently suffers from severe headaches that have at least three times landed her in the hospital.

At a campaign stop in South Carolina, Bachmann said she treats her migraines with medicine as needed and emphasized the rigorous pace of her campaign schedule since she entered the 2012 race.

    No it should not be a issue. The fact that she is a joke is.

      I agree. She needs to lose based on her total Inadequacy, not migranes. Then her "pray the gay away" husband can finally come out of the closet!

    It would not affect her as a leader. If she has a true passion for what she is doing, she can fight through the pain. JFK was a President who was suffering through his term as President, he pulled through. She could do the same as well.

    It is of concern when a leader may be debilitated for hours. Nonetheless, how many other presidents have had illness which had the potential to cause serious problems: Kennedy with Addisons, Wilson with a stroke, Roosevelt with polio, Reagan with Alzhiemers, Clinton who needed Sexs Addicts Anonymous. Heaven only knows what other iillness other presidents had that were made public due to a technology deficiency of the time.

      Sorry Kristen, cheating on your very cold and distant wife doesn't qualify you as a sex addict. It qualifies you as human. Make sure you blame BOTH people when BOTH people are responsible.
