Michelle Bachmann plays the victim ?
So many videos on her stupidity pick one
Bachmann plays the victim She isn't the victim she is the perpetrator of out and out lies. She makes up her own facts. When called out on it she ignores it and moves on. It has nothing to do with the fact that she calls herself a conservative! She is also un unabashed liar!
Much is being made of the fact that she was speaking in New Hampshire and said they should be prouf being the State where the shot heard around the world was fired and she got her States mixed up. She was next door to Concord New Hampshire. I think she got something else mixed up , she just is not that intelligent. I looked back at some of the stupid things she says.
Top 5 Hilarious Michele Bachmann Factual Errors
Perhaps the most famous recent Epic Fail when it comes to factual errors was Michele Bachmann's claim that the last time we had an outbreak of Swine Flu occur, it was also under Democratic leadership.
Reality: The last outbreak of Swine Flu was in 1976, under Gerald Ford. Jimmy Carter was elected later in the year.
Middle class tax hikes for everyone! Michele Bachmann claimed that Obama's new tax plan would impact people making under $250,000, in contrast to his campaign promises.
Fact: The "cap" on itemized deductions for mortgage interest, as well as the limit on charitable donation deductions, both apply to those in the over $250,000 income bracket (if filing jointly; single taxpayers experienced the former "cap" if their income was over $200,000).
Michele Bachmann claimed that Obama's new plan for green energy would cost the average American taxpayer over $3000 extra dollars per month in their utility bill.
Fact: Even the researcher who did the study has renounced this completely fabricated statement, claiming that the increase in monthly utility expenses to greener taxpayers would be negligible.
The so-called "Flying Imams" (six Muslim men who were taken off a flight and detained when fellow passengers refused to fly with them) were heading to Congressman Keith Ellison's victory celebration, according to Ms. Bachmann.
Fact: The "Flying Imams" were attempting to attend a conference of the North American Imams Federation.
Most recently, Michele Bachmann said that Obama's policies reminded her of the "Hoot-Smalley Tariff Act" enacted by FDR, which raised taxes and caused great economic suffering for 10 years.
Most recently, Michele Bachmann said that Obama's policies reminded her of the "Hoot-Smalley Tariff Act" enacted by FDR, which raised taxes and caused great economic suffering for 10 years.Fact: There are a lot of mistakes in this one, so let's go one at a time:
(a) It's the "Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act."
b) It was written by 2 Republicans, and it lowered taxes
(c) It was enacted in 1930, by Hoover.
(d) FDR repealed the Act in 1934.
In an era of Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin, Dennis Kucinich, and Bernie Saunders, however, it's nice to have someone like Michele Bachmann to remind us how ridiculous all the fighting really is, and how funny words like "Smoot" and "Hawley" can be.
