You Can't Hide From the Facts

Michele Bachmann tries to - hmm, what's the right euphemism here? Oh well, I'm not a journalist, so I suppose I can just say it - lie her way out of a little mess she made for herself. Video here. Best quote: 

"It was reported that I questioned Barack Obama's patriotism. I did not - nor do I question Barack Obama's patriotism." 

Luckily, the reporter quotes this part of the 
transcript

MR. MATTHEWS: So you believe that Barack Obama may have anti- American views.

REP. BACHMANN: Absolutely. I'm very concerned that he may have anti-American views. 

Her response:

"The thing is, I don't question Barack Obama's patriotism. I do question his ideas." 

Ok - deep breath here:

Yes, you did question his patriotism. It's right there on tape for the whole world to see. 

These people are unbelievable. "Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?"

The problems we face are too serious for one of our representatives to be this much of a deceptive, ignorant dolt (unfortunately, a lot more than one are that way). I wonder if she had any clue what she was saying when she made that statement - about those hideous chapters of American history when people like her took such awful steps in the name of "patriotism." 

Hopefully this lying clown will be unceremoniously kicked out of her seat by the Minnesota 6th come Election Day.

I've never seen Hardball before???
How is that possible for a politician, or really ANYONE with enough common sense to watch the show you're going to be a guest on...
