Bachmann’s God-Awful Comment

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Aug• 29•11

Though Shalt Not Debt!

Michele Bachmann didn’t help her cause today.  The Minnesota congresswoman and Tea Party Caucus leader provocatively suggested  that the recent earthquake and Hurricane came about because of God’s wrath over the federal deficit.  The Bachmann campaign quickly walked the comment back as “jest.” 

“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians,” she is reported as saying. “We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said: ‘Are you going to start listening to me here? Listen to the American people … They know the government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in spending.”

Bachmann is lucky.  None of the Republican candidates is gunning for her at the moment. Pawlenty has dropped out, Palin hasn’t decided whether to drop in, Romney and Perry are sizing each other up — and who knows what the rest of the field is up to.   

If someone were gunning for Bachmann, she would have a very long — and very bad — news cycle coming.

    Wow, is the crazed and dazed Bachmann now a reverend, she can take her place next to the other flakes like Jim Jones, Jim Baker, Jimmy Swaggart, (all silly jimmy’s), Ted Haggard, John Hagee, Oral Roberts, Jerry Falwell, Franklin Gramham (son of Billy), and we can’t forget the rev. Mike Huckabee. Maybe she is just channeling the fruity Pat Robertson. Isn’t she suppose to be helping her husband in some “pray the gay away sessions” so he can get some of that evil “Federal Money”, thats she is always railing about, hypocrite, both of them!

    But alas we probably will hear more or the same lies that we heard today. So who is the bigger fool, Bachmann or her followers?
