Michelle Bachmann A Gaffe Machine? If Liberals Want To See A Gaffe Machine, Have Them Look At Their Fool-In-Chief

You want to see a gaffe?

Here’s a pretty darned good gaffe:

“Everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma. They end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs when, if you, they just gave, you gave, treatment early, and they got some treatment, and uhhh a breathalyzer, or uhh, an inhalator, not a breathalyzer…”    

Here’s a REAL good one:

“I’ve now been in 57 states  I think one left to go.”

Oh!  There was this one, where Obama clearly couldn’t tell the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day (unless you want to argue Obama was having an “I see dead white people” moment):

“On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes and I see many of them in the audience here today.”

There was this gem of intellectual horsepower in which Obama went to Israel and assured that country:

“Well let me be absolutely clear.  Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s.”

There was the very recent moment in which Obama spoke to the 10th Mountain Division and said that their hero SFC Jared Monti was “the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually  came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.”  SFC Monti had in fact been mortally wounded in action.  His audience was grieving for their fallen comrade, not celebrating a living hero.

There was this statement of Obama meeting his future self and talking about the encounter:

“I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future.”

Which of course was balanced out by Obama’s future self going back in time and signing in for him:

Obama got the date wrong by THREE YEARS.  I’ve done that “sign the check with the wrong year” in January thing.  But this is beyond the pale.

Obama has also demonstrated that he didn’t understand the difference between the Congressional Medal of Honor (which is ONLY given to war heroes who demonstrated extraordinary heroism and gallantry under enemy fire) and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (which is a political award a president can give to anyone he wants for whatever reason he wants to give it).  And the surrounding instance of that horrendous gaffe was even more horrendous as Obama was giving “shout outs” AFTER he had just heard American soldiers had just been ruthlessly gunned down on an American base by a Muslim terrorist Major.

Along with Obama’s saluting of a Navy “corpse man,” demonstrating he had absolutely no idea whatsoever what corpsmen are or what they do.

And there was that recent moment when Obama continued to chatter on and on over the British National Anthem – which is a no-no pretty much EVERYWHERE.

Now, I see those, and I’m supposed to think that liberals are right for believing that Michelle Bachmann is too stupid (or what’s that word?  Flaky?) to be President of the United States because she mistook John Wayne – who was born in Winterset Iowa – with John Wayne Gacy – who was born in Waterloo Iowa?

But you consider the mainstream media that pretty much glossed over ALL of that, and then suddenly making Michelle Bachmann’s gaffe about John Wayne Gacy the absolute CENTERPIECE of their questioning of her, and you realize that there are two Americas out there – the one the liberal mainstream media propagandists hate and the one the liberal mainstream media propagandists love.

Unlike Barack Obama, Michelle Bachmann doesn’t take a teleprompter every damn where she goes.  Unlike Barack Obama, Michelle Bachmann isn’t a hand puppet reading a script.  And unlike Barack Obama, most of Michelle Bachmann’s gaffes have nothing whatsoever to do with governing the nation.

If you believe that Michelle Bachmann isn’t fit to be president because of gaffes, and you aren’t loudly demanding that Barack Obama resign from office for crimes against intelligence, than you are a hypocrite and a fool.

The media gets on the liberal warpath, and it just doesn’t stop.  So they are already on another one out of their contention that our founding fathers were a bunch of racist bigots bent on keeping black people in slavery forever (because liberals always have hated America and always WILL hate it until it embraces Marxism and becomes the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics of America.  Until that glorious day when the workers of the world truly unite into global socialism and America crawls into that coalition of hell they will continue to come unglued over candidates like Michelle Bachmann.

The founding fathers did NOT want slavery; but they were in the impossible position where they either allowed it or did not have a nation.  There was simply no way the pro-slavery states were going to give up slavery in 1787.  What the founding fathers did was compromise in such a way while writing our nations Constitution and laws in such a way that it was merely a matter of time before slavery would necessarily have to be abolished.

Take the three-fifths compromise that liberals often dump on to dump on America.  First of all the compromise had nothing whatosever to do with the ontology or humanity of black persons; it was completely directed at the extent of representation that slaves would have politically in determining the number of representatives and the distribution of taxes.  Second, which side wanted the slaves to have full representation?  THE SLAVERY SIDE.   The anti-slavery side wanted slaves to be accorded no representation at all, because counting them meant the slavery states would have more power and more money and therefore be able to resist demands to end slavery forever.

The southern states wanted to count slaves in the population of the nation, so that they could have more seats in the Congress, thereby increasing their political power. The northern states, on the other hand, were against including slaves in the population for the fear of increased Congressional seats in the southern states.

It was the pro-slavery side that demanded FULL representation.  In other words, Democrats – who demanded to hold on to slavery during the Civil War – CONTINUE to support the pro-slavery side even 225 years later!

Just to point out one more fact about the three-fifths compromise, one of the agreements reached was an END to the transatlantic slavery trade after twenty years.  Apparently, Democrats have always wanted that trade to continue.

P.S. Just in case you didn’t already think the media is cynical, vicious and biased enough as it was, George Stephanopoulos basically warned Michelle Bachmann that if she ran, the media would crawl through her five children’s and 23 foster children’s lives with the same anal probe they used on Sarah Palin’s emails.  ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos, for the official record, was a Democrat media spinner prior to becoming a “journalist.”  If ABC asks Karl Rove to be an anchor, call me.

And, of course, we’re already seeing the same rabid leftwing dishonest smear propaganda beginning from the media that they used against Sarah Palin.

The media is just crossing out “Sarah Palin’s” name and scrawling in “Michelle Bachmann’s” name.  Because they’re cockroaches.  A recent attack on Michelle Bachmann was to call her “Barbie with fangs.”  Because liberal “journalists” can hate on women as much as they want to knowing they have a Holy Warrior’s Absolution from the so-called “feminist groups” to do so.

Update, June 29: How about THIS for a gaffe: Barack Obama screwed up the age of HIS OWN CHILD.  Obama TWICE referred to his oldest daughter Malia as being 13; she’s 12.

    The vileness of the msm’s treatment of the beauteous, noble, QUALIFIED Michelle Bachmann is sickening and depressing.
    I can’t think of enough bad words to describe these people and what they do.

  2. Michael Eden Says:


    Consider Bachmann’s resume and life-story: graduated from a prestigious school (William and Mary, the OLDEST and one of the most prestigious law schools in America). Successful in both her private career and in her public career. Mother of five and foster mother of 23 children. If she were a liberal, SHE WOULD BE ADORED.

    But she’s a conservative, so she is a target of constant mainstream media HATE. And the people who hate her feel NOBLE about hating her. Hating her makes them good, you see.

    The media are simply applying the same narrative/strategy to Michelle Bachmann as they did to Sarah Palin. She’s “Barbie with fangs.” It’s a script they will play again and again. And they have total absolution from the most self-referentially hypocritical organizations in America (feminist groups) who actively help destroy these women AS women.

    .Bachmann went on to say that while slavery was still tolerated when the nation began the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States including John Quincy Adams..Again Cooper corrected Bachmann pointing out many of the founders including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned slaves.

    Here’s that article:

    Anderson Cooper rips GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann over comments on slavery, diversity in the U.S.
    Tuesday, January 25, 2011

    Anderson Cooper is giving Michele Bachmann an F in U.S. history.

    The CNN host slammed the Minnesota Republican congresswoman’s recent remarks about diversity in America, including claims that the Founding Fathers “worked tirelessly until slavery was no more” and skin color “didn’t matter” in the early days of democracy.

    During his “Keeping Them Honest” segment on Monday night, Cooper said Bachmann simply “airbrushed herself some new history,” adding the U.S. representative’s remarks are “either a deliberate rewriting of our history or signs that she has a shaky grasp” on what really happened.

    Bachmann, a rising Tea Party star who is rumored to be considering a presidential run in 2012, delivered the controversial remarks to a group called Iowans for Tax Relief on Jan. 21.

    “It didn’t matter the color of their skin. It didn’t matter their language. It didn’t matter their economic status,” Bachmann told the audience while describing the experience of early settlers in America.

    “It didn’t matter whether they descended from known royalty or are of a higher class or a lower class. It made no difference. Once you got here, we were all the same. Isn’t that remarkable? It is absolutely remarkable.”

    Her spokesman did not immediately return requests for comment.

    Cooper quickly pointed out the difficulties a number of ethnic groups have faced, including Irish immigrants, Japanese-Americans who were placed in internment camps and enslaved Africans who were brought to the U.S. against their will.

    Bachmann went on to say that while slavery was still tolerated when the nation began, the “very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States,” including John Quincy Adams.

    Again, Cooper corrected Bachmann, pointing out many of the founders, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, owned slaves. And while John Quincy Adams did campaign against slavery, he wasn’t a Founding Father and died 15 years before the Emancipation Proclamation.

    The host noted that Bachmann declined a request to appear on the show to defend her remarks.

    Bachmann plans to respond to President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday on behalf o the tea party movement.

    My response is that first Michelle Bachmann has a broader view of “founding fathers” than is commonly held. She would basically consider all the people who fought to establish America as “founding fathers,” not merely those who signed the Declaration and Constitution. So she’s not just talking about George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. I don’t see how you can call her “stupid” for that.

    Second, in most cases founders like Washington and Jefferson owned slaves because the ESTATE THEY HAD INHERITED owned slaves. And there were laws in place that made simply “freeing slaves” a rather difficult matter. It would have essentially bankrupted many estates to do so. In the case of George Washington, specifically, it wasn’t even George Washington’s estate that owned the slaves; it was MARTHA WASHINGTON’S estate. The slaves belonged to her and to her children; he could not legally free them.

    George Washington actually DID emancipate his slaves. Which meant he had to provide for them (so they wouldn’t starve, which would have been nearly as cruel as the slavery itself). His only son was killed in the war, so his estate had freedom many others did not.

    Third, I would point out that the writings of the founding fathers overwhelmingly express their intention and desire to free slavery. They were born into a system that they wanted to change. It is amazing, therefore, how unfair people like Anderson Cooper are to our founding fathers. They were trapped by a society that had created slavery, and they were trapped by what their own fathers had done in that society. IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT THEY DID VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING THAT THEY COULD TO END SLAVERY. And in that sense Michelle Bachmann is right and Anderson Cooper should get an F grade.

    Today, we read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and we ask, “How could these men write this stuff and own slaves? Were they too stupid to see the contradictions?” And the obvious answer is, “No, they weren’t. These were the most briliant political geniuses in human history; and when Anderson Cooper writes a Constitution that binds not only the most powerful nation in the history of the world, but changes the very course of history, maybe he can argue with that. And these geniuses KNEW what they were doing. They KNEW that they could write foundational documents which would ultimately FORCE America to abandon slavery.

    What is funny is that the ONLY thing from preventing the end to slavery decades before it happened – requring the most bloody war in American history to do it – was a) the Democrat Party, which was pro-slavery versus the Republican Party, which was abolutionist; and b) ACTIVIST JUDGES who imposed their will on the Constittuion and “interpreted” it the same way liberals continue to do today. Read “Men in Black” by Mark Levin on the Dred Scott decision to see more of that. To further refute Cooper, he mentions Japanese-Americans and their internment, well, who DID that? Democrats who despise our Constitition and the founding fathers who wrote it!!! Specifically, FDR, Democrats FAVORITE Democrat.

    Michelle Bachmann is far more correct, and a far better patriot, than Anderson Cooper.

    lol at all of this lol i cant stop if this is the worse thing you can com up with lol

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    I’d hope you’re on Michelle Bachmann’s side, and are utterly shocked that “the worse [sic] thing” they can come up with against her is the John Wayne thing.

    But alas, I get the feeling that you actually might believe that a guy who doesn’t even know what YEAR it is (I mean the moron was THREE YEARS OFF); not knowing how many states there are in the country he wants to run, etc. etc. are actually trivial in comparison to Bachmann’s mistake!!!

    For the record, as I recall, John Wayne HAD visited the Iowa city, but hadn’t been born there (John Wayne Gacy the serial killer had been born there). Clearly, that is far more serious of an error than all of the documented idiocy from our Idiot-in-Chief.
