There, I said it. See how easy that is? Anybody can make stuff up for the sake of shock and scare value–the difference is, my lie is more believable than most of the ones which come out of Michele Bachmann’s mouth.
If you haven’t heard by now, her latest embarrassing case of oral subterfuge occurred today on the House floor, when she said “Let’s repeal (Obamacare) before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens! Let’s not do that. Let’s love people!”
Here’s the full clip for context, courtesy of Talking Points Memo via C-SPAN:
So there you have it. Michele Bachmann wants to “love people” by taking away the health care reform which has already had a positive impact on countless families and saved many lives. Forget the fact that President Obama solidly won reelection last year, while Bachmann herself had to wait until around 5 AM the morning of November 7th to find out she had barely eked out a victory over Democratic challenger Jim Graves. That would explain why she’s been eerily silent in the months since, up until she made a total fool out of herself at CPAC this past weekend. But now she’s a new person, all about the virtues of love–as long as you’re loving a member of the opposite sex, and you don’t expect to have access to a decent health care plan in what’s supposed to be the greatest nation in the world.
Somebody needs to remind Michele that you can’t preach about “love” when you don’t have a heart to begin with.
