Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is getting ready to leave Congress and World Net Daily (WND) interviewed her about her time in office. WND referred to Bachmann as a “GOP Legend’ in their headline and the conservative ‘legend” shared her strategy on defeating liberals.
“Well, telling the truth bothers them. They don’t like to have the truth told about them, and that’s really what it is. I didn’t fear the left. I decided to take them on in the arena of ideas by attacking their false premises and their false narratives.”
Bachmann explained that she was a media target because she outsmarted her liberal opponents. “That’s the best way to defeat them, by the way — defeat them with evidence and defeat them with their false premises, and I did that,” she said.
“I took them on, and their agenda, and I went to the heart of whatever it was they wanted to advance, and tried to take it apart through evidence-based arguments, and they don’t like that,” Bachmann said. “When the left argues, they argue from emotionalism.”
She also blamed liberals for scaring away conservative women seeking political office.
“The Republican Party always gets a bad rap because there are not as many women that are in elective office, but it’s a tough business. It is public humiliation, public ridicule, constant criticism when you’re in public office – if you take on the left.”
Bachmann is a special kind of crazy and fails to realize that the majority of criticism she has received has stemmed from her delusional commentary and flat-out lies.
Here are some Bachmann quotes, followed by a link proving what she said has no basis in reality:
False: “The Tea Party is an organic, spontaneous movement that rose up in opposition to the Pelosi-Reid-Obama agenda.” Truth
False: “Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.” Truth
