Anyone up for some Michele Bachmann crazy? Update : Glenn Beck is the answer to our woes
Michele Bachmann was in South Carolina this past weekend and brought her own brand of crazy to the heart of the
Bachmann criticized Democratic President Barack Obama often, particularly over health care reform.
She thinks many areas of society are under attack — from the free-market system to the family, America’s place in the world to the futures of the nation’s children and grandchildren.
“Every generation has made a decision that we are a worthy nation to go on. And they made the sacrifices that we would,” Bachmann said.
“And so now it’s for us. We decide. Do we go on? Or does the bubble burst? And I’ve made my decision. That’s why I’m here in South Carolina. Because I say the dream goes on. And I’ve made a decision that I am all in to preserve the liberties to the latest generation. This dream doesn’t die with us. This dream goes on to the next generation. We have too much invested in that generation, because we are the indispensable nation of the world.”
If I’m not mistaken didn’t a group of people in South Carolina around the year 1861 say they were going to preserve their liberties from the government?
Bachmann said the current U.S. tax code should be scrapped, calling it “a weapon of mass destruction” that destroys America’s work ethic: “We need a radically different system.”
She criticized the Federal Reserve for actions she believes causes U.S. currency to lose value. She said this country should follow Ronald Reagan’s example of firing workers who go on strike. And she said this country couldn’t afford political correctness when it comes to airport security.
“Our Peace Prize-winning president is very busy bowing these days to kings. He is bending down to dictators, and he is brown-nosing the elites that are in Europe, and he’s babying the jihadists who are following Sharia-compliant terrorism. He is callow and confused and inconsistent in his response to the Egyptian crisis, and to the uprisings in Iran, and to the terrorist threats,” Bachmann said. “And he’s accomplishing something nobody thought even possible: He’s making Jimmy Carter look like a Rambo tough-guy.”
Guess she is jumping on the Glenn Beck/Alex Jones bandwagon of attacking the Fed. Yawn
As for the last part of her rant, I’m not insane enough to decipher what she is talking about. Maybe she is affraid that if we interact with the rest of the world American “exceptionalism” will have no meaning? I have no idea.
She offered up a somewhat non-traditional solution: “We need to simply tell people the facts, like Glenn Beck, with that chalkboard, that man can explain anything. I think if we give Glenn Beck the numbers, he can solve this.”
