“I will tell you, as I have been home in my district, in the sixth district of Minnesota, there isn’t a weekend that hasn’t gone by that someone says to me, ‘Michele, what in the world are you all waiting for in Congress? Why aren’t you impeaching the president? He’s been making unconstitutional actions since he came into office.’”
– Rep. Michele Bachmann, to a “Tea Party” crowd outside Capitol Hill on May 16.
Minnesota’s resident lunatic joins such geniuses as Texas’ own Louie Gohmert in entertaining the concept of impeachment proceedings against Obama over the ongoing Benghazi mess and the new scandal involving the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups in recent years. The “Tea Party” gang suddenly feels victimized – like evangelical Christians – by an allegedly oppressive American oligarchy. They’re obviously just looking for any reason to get Obama out of office. I have 2 words for them: PRESIDENT BIDEN! Hell, that even scares me!
“It’s no secret that our nation may very well be experiencing the hand of judgment. It is no secret that we all are concerned that our nation may be in a time of decline. Our nation has seen judgment not once, but twice, on September 11. And, that’s why we’re going to have 911 pray on that day. Is there anything better that we could do on that day rather than to humble ourselves and to pray to an Almighty God?”
– Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, in a prayer service, stating that the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the ambush of the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 were both signs from God.
Once again, a right-wing extremist has belittled the tragedy of terrorism by dismissing it as “God’s judgment.” This reminds me of the time when that other redneck asshole, Jerry Falwell, claimed the September 11, 2001 attacks were the results of God’s judgment on America because of abortion, homosexuality and other so-called deviancies. Falwell eventually apologized for the comment, and I wonder how long it’ll take before Bachmann realizes her head is still not screwed on right.
