Following her retirement from Congress, I thought we’d have heard a lot more from Michele Bachmann than we have so far. After all, much of her time as a member of Congress seemed to be fixated on saying some of the most ridiculous things ever uttered by an elected official. Whether it was spouting off absolute gibberish, perpetuating flat-out lies or making herself look like an absolute fool on national television, Bachmann never seemed to shy away from any situation that might get her some sort of attention.
Which is why I’ve been a bit surprised to hear so little from her these last several weeks, outside of a quick blurb about how she’s got a short cameo in the new Sharknado movie. Then again, she’s probably planning another pointless run at the presidency in 2016, so she’s avoiding taking any sort of “political contributor” role at Fox News because she couldn’t do that and run for president at the same time. Either way, when it’s all said and done, I don’t think it’s a matter of if she’ll become a paid employee of the conservative entertainment network, but when.
Well, in a recent Facebook post, Bachmann reminded everyone of just how pathetic she can be when she used the horrific crash of Germanwings Flight 9525 that killed 150 people to take a cheap shot at President Obama’s ongoing negotiations with Iran over their nuclear program.
With his Iran deal, Barack Obama is for the 300 million souls of the United States what Andreas Lubitz was for the 150 souls on the German Wings flight – a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks. After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, why did he do it?
Yes, that’s a former lawmaker (and possible 2016 GOP presidential candidate) comparing the President of the United States to a mass murderer who apparently purposefully flew a plane into the side of a mountain killing 150 people.
With this comment, politicizing an unthinkable tragedy to take a petty partisan shot at President Obama, Bachmann proved that there’s really no depth to which she won’t stoop to try to attack this president.
If someone doesn’t like President Obama, that’s fine. There hasn’t been a single president, no matter how successful they’ve been, that was ever universally liked. But I can’t even grasp what kind of sick mindset someone needs to have to write something such as this. What kind of a low-life sees a tragedy such as the Germanwings crash then thinks to themselves, “Hmm, this is a great opportunity to attack President Obama.”
Well, apparently Bachmann is exactly that kind of low-life.
It just never ceases to amaze me how low many conservatives will go just to attack President Obama. It’s one thing to dislike his politics, but it’s something entirely different – and much more disgusting – to compare him to a mass murderer just for the sake of some pointless, petty cheap shot.
Then again, this is Michele Bachmann; nothing she does really surprises me anymore.
