Bachmann Lies – Film at 11

Remember when Michele Bachmann said that Obama had “anti-american views” on Hardball during the 2008 campaign? She then went on a radio show and said she didn’t really believe that, that her position had been misstated:

BACHMANN: I feel his views are concerning. I’m calling on the media to investigate them. I’m not saying that his views are anti-American. That was a misreading of what I said. And so I don’t believe that’s my position.

Now, she’s again claiming that she did say that — and that she was right:

Bachmann also said that her controversial remarks of more than a year ago – in which she called Obama “anti-American” and suggested members of Congress be investigated for “anti-American activities” – have proven prophetic.

“I said I had very serious concerns that Barack Obama had anti-American views,” she said. “And now I look like Nostradamus.”

In a way, she’s right. Just like Nostradamus, she spouts a bunch of irrelevant bullshit and a whole bunch of superstitious, credulous people who lack the ability to think critically distort reality to make those inane blatherings seem to be true.
