Michele Bachmann Links Swine Flu To Democrats, Gets History Wrong (VIDEO)

Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, following Rush Limbaugh's cue, suggested on Tuesday that President Obama was to blame for the swine flu crisis. She went even farther than the talk show host, implying that swine flu epidemics are a Democratic phenomenon that dates back to President Carter.

"I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter. And I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence."

Unfortunately, Bachmann's facts are a little off. As Glenn Thrush notes, Republican President Gerald Ford, not Carter, led the country during the last outbreak of the virus

:lol:

God, she's a fucking idiot. Why do we even pay attention to anything she says? Why does she get airtime? Who the hell would vote for her stupid ass?

Bachman doesn't represent a very large segment of MN, although with the way she gets media attention, you'd think she did. However, her district is made up of some far-rightwing fundies who are as ignorant as she is, so I imagine she'll continue to be elected. :roll: She's one of the reasons the Republican party is in a hell of a lot of trouble presently. Would you be proud to have her as your rep? :lol:

I see a formidable Palin/Bachmann ticket in 2012.

We're screwed!

:wink:
