Bachmann wants to take non existent US Embassy staff out of Iran

stfubachmann:

In light of the British Foreign Ministry pulling all U.K. nationals out of the British embassy in Tehran after students stormed the building in protest, GOP presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann told a crowd in Waverly, Iowa, today that she would close the U.S. embassy in Iran.

One small, tiny note: The U.S. hasn’t had an embassy in Tehran since 1980. Following the Iranian Hostage Crisis, where 52 Americans were held for 444 days, the United States cut all diplomatic ties.

According to reports, Bachmann applauded the U.K.’s move, adding, “That’s exactly what I would do [if I were  president]. We wouldn’t have an embassy in Iran. I wouldn’t allow that to be there.”

Recall just a few weeks ago when Bachmann bragged to Fox News that she had a squeaky clean record.

“I haven’t had a gaffe or something that I’ve done that has caused me to fall in the polls,” she said.

I know it’s been a while since our last post, but damn, she’s still just as stupid.

Michele Bachmann Takes Issue With Radical Environmentalists

stfubachmann:

Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann claims the U.S. has more energy resources than any other country but isn’t exploiting them because of radical environmentalists.

Bachmann says with shale oil, natural gas and coal, the United States shouldn’t be “begging” others for oil and energy supplies.

She said “we are the king daddy dogs when it comes to energy.” But she says environmentalists are preventing resources from being tapped.

As president, Bachmann said she would unlock those resources and eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency.

“The radical environmentalists have demanded that we lock up all our energy resources,” she added. “President Bachmann will take that key out of the door. I will unlock it.”

The crowd at the upscale retirement community cheered wildly.


Apparently Bachmann either doesn’t know or, more likely, doesn’t care that shale drilling releases massive amounts of toxic chemicals into groundwater, aquifers, and any other source of water the shale comes into contact with. The water turns into poison; drinking it will literally kill you.

This is something I care about a great deal, largely because one of the biggest shale oil reserves in the country is right under the Appalachian Basin, which most of Pennsylvania is inside of. Parts of up-state Pennsylvania literally need truckloads of bottled water just to be habitable, because any plumbing is going to give you water so polluted with shale toxins it will kill you. There was a conference in Pittsburgh last year between oil company executives, aided by Karl Rove, and Tom Corbett, Pennsylvania’s current governor, about allowing drilling in the Marcellus Shale around Pittsburgh. This is where I live, I call Pittsburgh my home, and if Bachmann and the oil companies had their way it would be completely uninhabitable.

Fossil fuels are a crutch keeping the US weak, indebted, and dependent. Anyone who believes otherwise is delusional. Destroying the environment in an effort to get at more as opposed to making alternative power sources more available and better funded is just further evidence of that fact.

Here are some famous quotes from Michele Bachmann: 
1. “I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another… Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.” –  Bachmann, on the 1976 Swine Flu outbreak that happened when Gerald Ford, a Republican, was president. April 2009
2. “There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.” October, 2006
3. “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.” April, 2009
4. “If we took away the minimum wage – if conceivably it was gone – we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.” January, 2005
5. “This is not funny. It’s a very sad life. It’s part of Satan, I think, to say that this is gay.” Bachmann on homosexuality. May. 2004
6. “Does that mean that someone’s 13-year-old daughter could walk into a sex clinic, have a pregnancy test done, be taken away to the local Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, have their abortion, be back and go home on the school bus? That night, mom and dad are never the wiser.” – Bachmann on health care reform’s potential to dupe parents, October 2009.

I realize we’ve already posted some of these before, but still, never forget she is this dumb, please.

The fact that no one in government or media ever seems to call her on the insane and completely inaccurate things she says simply enrages me.

Michele Bachmann Is Not a Doctor

stfubachmann:

On the campaign trail in Iowa, Rep. Michele Bachmann’s response to the argument that she lacks the experience to run for president has been to turn the argument on its head. The Minnesota congresswoman rattles off her resume: She was a federal tax litigation attorney; she and her husband started “a successful small company”; she fought the establishment in the state Legislature and Congress. 

But there was one résumé item that was missing: a Ph.D. Back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when Bachmann traveled the state as an education activist, she went by “Dr. Michele Bachmann,” even though she had never obtained nor sought the advanced degree that’s a prerequisite for the title.And one more thing: Lest you think she doesn’t have the brains to do battle with Obama, she rattles off her degrees. “I’m not only a lawyer, I have a postdoctorate degree in federal tax law from William and Mary,” she told Fox News’ Chris Wallace in June. “I work in serious scholarship.”

and

This isn’t the only instance of Bachmann exaggerating her résumé. She continues to call herself a “tax attorney” or “tax litigation attorney” even though, according to the state of Minnesota, she is not currently authorized to practice law in the state. In an effort to prove her bipartisan appeal, she has stated that Minnesota Democrats squeezed her out of her old Senate district and put her in a new, liberal-leaning one—but the districts were drawn up by the courts, and her new district actually leaned red.

On occasion, she has also stretched the truth about her foster children (she had 23) to make a political point. In a 2008 interview with Politico, she noted that she was feeling the squeeze from high gas prices because she has such a large family. “Energy will be the big focus right now,” she said. “Every weekend now when I go home, I will go to the grocery store, I’ll buy food for the family. We have five kids and 23 foster kids that we raise. So I go to the grocery store and buy a lot of food.” The catch? She didn’t have any foster children in 2008; her permit to take in foster children had expired in 2000 and she had taken in her last child, a teenage girl, in 1998.

How the hell does this woman get away with blatantly lying about, well, everything?!

One really good reason why Michele Bachmann should not run for President

joystik-harlot:

spacemunkie:

  •  
    • BACHMANN WARNED ‘THE LION KING’ WAS GAY PROPAGANDA: At the November 2004 EdWatch National Education Conference, Bachmannsaid the “normalization” of homosexuality would lead to “desensitization”: “Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of ‘The Lion King’ for instance, and a teacher might say, ‘Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?’ The message is: I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.”
    • BACHMANN CLAIMED ABOLISHING THE MINIMUM WAGE WOULD CREATE JOBS: While testifying in front of the Minnesota Senate in 2005, Bachmann said, “Literally, if we took away the minimum wage — if conceivably it was gone — we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.” This isn’t remotely true. Even simply reducing the minimum wage would, as Paul Krugman noted, “at best do nothing for employment; more likely it would actually be contractionary.”
    • BACHMANN CLAIMED THAT SCIENTISTS ARE SUPPORTERS OF INTELLIGENT DESIGN: During a 2006 debate, Bachmann said, “There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.” This was, and is, not true.
    • BACHMANN CLAIMED TERRI SCHIAVO WAS ‘HEALTHY’: Not long after Terri Schiavo died, Bachmann said she would have voted for the Palm Sunday Compromise because Schiavo “was healthy. She had brain damage — there was brain damage, there was no question. But from a health point of view, she was not terminally ill.” An autopsy found that Schiavo had suffered irreversible brain damage and her brain, said the medical examiner, was “profoundly atrophied.”
    • BACHMANN LIKENED VISITING IRAQ TO VISITING MALL OF AMERICA: In 2007, Bachmann returned from a junket to Iraq and told her colleagues, “[T]here’s a commonality with the Mall of America, in that it’s on that proportion. There’s marble everywhere. The other thing I remarked about was there is water everywhere.” As ThinkProgress documented at the time, the comparison was preposterous.
    • BACHMANN SUGGESTED GAY SINGER SHOULD REPENT AFTER GETTING CANCER: Bachmann saw Melissa Etheridge’s cancer as a teachable moment: “Unfortunately she is now suffering from breast cancer, so keep her in your prayers,” she said in November 2004. “This may be an opportunity for her now to be open to some spiritual things, now that she is suffering with that physical disease. She is a lesbian.”
  • You get the idea, this woman is either a pathological liar, or she has a fucked up perspective on the world. How could this person be stable enough to govern us?

KJHSKFHSDKFU WHY IS SHE ALIVE?

I really don’t ever seriously condone violence against others, but would someone PLEASE just beat the living shit out of her?

Fuck that, I’m going to go seduce Michelle Bachmann, turn her into a lesbian, and then hit her in the head with a vibrator, hard enough for her to get brain damage, while watching the Lion King.

I cannot express how much I want to giver her a swift kick to the teeth.

stfubachmann:

Michele Bachmann has won the Ames Straw Poll, and the vast majority of sources are saying she did it in landslide fashion. The time to starting worrying is now, if reasonable people don’t stand in her way, who knows what can happen.

An opinion I try not to express often, regardless of who it’s about, but will someone please just stab her?

Oh, and make sure she dies, we don’t need another Ronald Reagan.

Bachmann calls for ‘immediate resignation’ of Geithner

stfubachmann:

“That’s right — nice decision by S&P to downgrade our credit rating to a AA+,” Bachmann said. “It’s historically significant. It is a serious event for the United States because our country has had a AAA rating since 1917. That rating has never been downgraded. It has endured the Great Depression, World War II, Korea, Vietnam and terrorist attacks on 9/11.

Michele, you realize WWII ended the depression, right? You also realize the depression had no effect on the governments ability to pay their bills, right? Oh wait, that’s right, you can’t read, I wouldn’t expect you to know simple history.

Also, btw, 9/11 has no place in this argument, just thought you should know.

This woman … I can’t even … can someone please punch her in the face?

Michele Bachman saying that CO2 is a harmless gas. 

This woman is both astoundingly stupid and a liar. 

Why does she blink so much?!

Yes, it’s in the cycle to begin with, but that’s because the plants that you have no problem with cutting down can process the naturally occurring CO2. What they can’t handle is all of the excess CO2 produced by factories, coal power stations, internal combustion engines, and every other bad idea humans have come up with.

The Transformation of Michele Bachmann

stfubachmann:

Bachmann, a two-term member of Congress from Stillwater, Minnesota, is an ideologue of the Christian-conservative movement. Her appeal, along with her rapid ascent in the polls, is based on a collection of right-wing convictions, beliefs, and resentments that she has regularly broadcast from television studios and podiums since 2006, when she was first elected to Congress.

Often, she will say something outrageous and follow it with a cheerful disclaimer. During the last Presidential campaign, she told Chris Matthews, on MSNBC, that Barack Obama held “anti-American views” and then admitted, “I made a misstatement.” (In 2010, she said that she had been right about Obama’s views all along: “Now I look like Nostradamus.”) In the spring of 2009, during what appeared to be the beginnings of a swine-flu epidemic, Bachmann said, “I find it interesting that it was back in the nineteen-seventies that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat President, Jimmy Carter. And I’m not blaming this on President Obama—I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.”

As commentators quickly pointed out, the President during the first swine-flu outbreak was a Republican, Gerald Ford.

This is hands down one of the best profile pieces done on Michele since she has taken over the ‘national spotlight’, everyone needs to click the link and read it. (It’s a bit long)

Also, HOW FUCKING CRAZY IS THAT SWINE FLU QUOTE?!?!?!

Bachmann: Improving economy 'won't take that long'

stfubachmann:

Republican congresswoman Michele Bachmann says that if she’s elected president “it won’t take that long” for her to turn around the ailing economy.

Speaking to reporters ahead of next week’s straw poll in Iowa, Bachmann says the economy would start to improve shortly after she becomes president if signals are sent to the marketplace that remove uncertainty about taxes, regulation and the nation’s debt.

Bachmann said Friday a report that 117,000 jobs were created last month shows that the economy remains weak. She says this week’s stock market plunge is proof that an agreement to raise the nation’s debt ceiling was, in her words, “a stinky deal.”

Michele, I think you need to learn what an economy even is before you start talking about how fast you can fix one. Also, that “stinky deal”, is the work of your fellow Tea Partiers, you have no one but yourself to blame (again).

If by “turn around” she means completely switch flipping from recovering into crashing, then I don’t doubt her at all.
