Michele Bachmann (R-Mars) Panders to the Birther Base
Here’s Michele Bachmann with crazier hair than usual, refusing to say she believes President Obama is a US citizen or a Christian; instead she uses the weasel words we’re hearing from every Republican: “I take the President at his word.”
Are there people who really don’t see what’s going on here? The GOP is afraid of their crazy base of extremists. They know that if they say the wrong thing, they could be the next casualty of the Tea Party electorate. So instead they try their best to ride the tiger without pissing it off; they make vague noises as if they’re not joining in the insanity, while still getting the point across that Barack Obama just might be a sekrit Moslem bent on destroying the American way of life.
It’s craven pandering politics at its lowest.
