    Yet another Michelle Bachmann gaffe...........

    Bachmann says Obama policies led to Arab spring - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    I wonder if she actually knows that the Arab Spring is a movement towards democracy?

    Does Bachmann hate democracy?

    Actually, the Arab Spring is nothing merely a mirror of the French Revolution and we all know how that ended up... Anyway, there's some good with some of the causes of the Arab Spring but neither the less it's a horrible failure. Michelle Bachmann is just trying to be relevant because she knows that she can't win the primaries, like Sarah Palin.

    Doesn't she realize that autocratic regiems are the exact opposite of democracy?

    Nope, sorry.......the woman doesn't have a brain.

    It "ended up" with a genuine French Republic, although that had to go through a failed republic, an idealistic dictatorship, restoration of the monarchy, a not-so-idealistic dictatorship, and a lost war against the Prussians before it finally ended up there. It's difficult to go straight from absolute monarchy to a full-fledged republic in one step.

    Be that as it may, unfortunately, Bachmann is wrong. I wish we could credit Obama for the Arab Spring, but that's stretchin' the truth just a wee bit too far for me.

    She lost my support many gaffes ago.

    Glad she's not still considered in the running.

    It would be better for conservatives to make a list of what they don’t blame Obama for – it'd be very brief.

    President Obama didn't do a damn thing in the Middle East, I'm still waiting for him to actually say to Assad, "Step the Hell Down or We're Cut Off All Trade". That's takes balls if you ask me...

    She blames Obama for rain clouds. Take everything she says with a grain of salt.

    I thought Michelle Bachmann was a Bible-Believing Christian... She thinks Barack Obama is a god now? Blasphemy!
