If Michele Bachmann Wins The Presidency, Who Would Really Be President?

Bachmann is once again giving a bad name to female GOPers everywhere, as the Tea Party candidate has famously asserted in the past that she is not a feminist and that she believes that a woman must submit to her husband. Now, as reported by the AP, it comes out that she pursued her law degree because her husband told her to. Ouch.

"'He is her godly husband,' said Peter Bachmann, Dr. Bachmann’s oldest brother, who lives on the family dairy farm across the eastern border in Wisconsin. 'The husband is to be the head of the wife, according to God.' It is a philosophy that Michele Bachmann echoed to congregants of the the Living Word Christian Center in 2006, when she stated that she pursued her degree in tax law only because her husband had told her to. 'The Lord says: Be submissive, wives. You are to be submissive to your husbands,' she said."

Uh.  No.  You cannot be elected President in order to have someone else tell you what to do.  That's kind of the point.  As HRM George Bush II famously said, "I am the decider!"  Is this really what constitutes an empowered American?
