the mum using her kid like that is equally as not cool as the woman disagreeing with the poor kid.

As much as I dislike Michele Bachmann, I got to say I think this is more a fail on the mother... using her kid like that...

@britt566 - What video were you watching? She clearly blew the kid off. I don't know what else you'd call responding to his statement with "bye bye."

In any case, despite the fact that I loathe Bachmann's stance on homosexuality and adamantly support the right of same-sex couples to marry and raise children, I do find it distasteful that this particular mother decided to use her small child, who is too young to understand politics, to make a political point.

I don't think she looks like one, I think she clearly is one.

Michele Bachmann is braindead and never knows what to say but in this situation there is nothing to say. Even if she had a thought out answer (LOL) why argue it with a kid who clearly was told to say it and didn't even want to. It's also one thing to counter-point an opposing adult but anything contradictory she might of said no matter how thought out, polite, or un-biggoted (if that's possible on this one) would have been spun as inappropriately interfering with the parents choice of upbringing.

Exactly how should she respond to kid being used to stir up trouble? Maybe bitch slap the mother?

Uggh for people saying "I think she just didnt know what to say" SHE NEVER KNOWS WHAT TO SAY! she has the WORST "go to" answers EVER! And 90% of the time she has NO answer and PANICS and just kind of chuckles and looks like an awkward MORON.

michele bachmann sucks, but as everyone has said, there was no dissing and no blowing off.

However I would like to know how she would have handled the situation had the kid not run off out of embarrassment because of his stupid parents.

i don't think she dissed the kid. i don't think she knew what to say. i would be shocked too if a kid whispered that in my ear despite whether he was told to or not.

I feel like almost all of us can agree the parents of that poor kid sucks. What a coward.

This is just as bad as making your kid hold your home-made 'pro life' sign in front of the Planned Parenthood. Why not let the kid form his own opinion through his own course of life? The woman already has an upper hand (or set back, depending on her parental skills) by raising him in a tolerant environment.

"The child was shy, frightened, and prompted. Regardless of your stance on this subject, it is not right to force your child to represent an opinion that he or she hasn't formulated on their own, simply to push your agenda, while also trying to elicit embarrassment by using your child, as well. So there." - Rick

What he said....too tired and too lazy to write my opinion but he said it nicely...

I hate Michele and her cronies. I hate what they stand for and the way they treat others. But putting that kid in that position is despicable. Poor little guy.

She didn't diss him. HE was put up to it by an adult and then walked away before she could say anything. Typical coward liberal bomb thrower.

His mom doesn't need to be fixed for being gay, but she does need to stop being a bitch and putting her children in awkward positions to push her political agenda.

Oh look, gay parents are just as pooty as straight ones. Don't drag your child in to this bullpoo. Raise them and when they are old enough let them formulate their own opinions.

That kid was obviously very shy and didn't want to say that. the parents should be ashamed, gay or not.

This video is pretty shameful. I don't personally like Bachmann but she did the right thing under the circumstances. The mother of the child was definitely in the wrong for dragging her kid into a battle he has no right being in. And 'Young Gay Rights Activist?' Uhh, no. Step it up, Fancy.

Being prompted by one's mother absolutely negates the power of the moment. He's just doing his mom's bidding without understanding what it means. I hate Michele Bachmann with a passion, but this video doesn't hit home.
