….but this particular statement that she made has me so incensed that I feel like I have to put my opinions on the matter on this blog. At the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, she stated that Barack Obama, a man that garnered 53 percent of the popular vote, which equals 69,456,897 votes, is turning America into “a nation of slaves”.
You know, never mind that Bachmann and her ilk would know nothing of slavery, since her skin pigmentation would clearly denote that her lineage has never experienced slavery of any kind. Never mind that President Obama is a Black man. Never mind the fact that this is coming from a woman that has previously stated that then-U.S. Sen. Obama harbored “anti-American views”.
When someone like this manages to sneak into office under some facade of respectability, it is one thing. However, the fact that she is now in her second term in office speak more to the district and the country that allows someone like her to continue in a public office in a nation that is supposed to be the world’s most advanced.
When we will wake up and put people in office that actually do things for the good of their constituents? I figure that will be a long time coming. Shame on Rep. Bachmann and shame on the people that continue to send her there.
