Republicans have wanted a government shutdown since before President Obama took office and none epitomize that as much as Michele Bachmann, because she’s crazy that’s why. Before it was reported tonight that House Republicans voted once more to defund Obamacare, while risking America’s economy, Michele Bachmann said she was “very excited” about the prospect.
She further said, “It’s exactly what we wanted, and we got it.”
And she wasn’t alone.
Rep. John Abney (R-Texas) said, “It’s wonderful,” while clapping his hands to emphasize the point. “We’re 100 percent united!”
Culberson added, “Ulysses S. Grant said, ‘Quit worrying about what Bobby Lee’s doing and let’s focus on what we are doing, We are focusing on what we need to do and not worrying about what the other guy is going to do. .?.?. That’s how Ulysses S. Grant won the war.”
The Washington Post reports, “Outside groups that lifted many of these lawmakers into office praised Saturday’s move as the kind of action that had originally drawn their support. Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots, on Saturday applauded Republicans “for their courage and their refusal to be cowed by the Senate and the president.”
More on Bachmann.
In an interview published today on the conspiracy-theory-happy website WorldNetDaily, Rep. Michele Bachmann likens President Obama to a crack dealer, accusing him of trying to “get Americans addicted to the crack cocaine of dependency on more government health care.”
Right wing watch reports, “The Minnesota congresswoman, who has alleged that Obamacare denies healthcare to conservatives, implements death panels and “literally kills” people, even tried to link health insurance exchanges to supposed ACORN-esque voter fraud in which non-existent people will sign up for insurance to make money.”
That’s a small example of today’s Republican Party. Their pathetic display of juvenility will harm others. The lunatics are running the asylum.
The GOP: Party first, country last.
Remember this in 2014.
There’s a lot more here.
