According to Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Under investigation) both Senate Democrats and President Obama are not productive. On Fox News with Eric Bolling she went on to praise House Speaker John Boehner over sending just 18 Republicans to meet with President Obama after he invited all of them.
Bachmann told Fox News Channel host Eric Bolling on Thursday that Boehner made the right decision because the House GOP is “not interested in a lecture” from the president.
She said, “I think John Boehner made exactly the right call. He’s been making a lot of very good calls recently, and one of the calls is that he refused to have 200 Republicans go to the White House where would we all sit through a lecture from, with all due respect, Professor Obama.”
Bachmann continued, “This is a president whose administration’s position has been, again with all due respect, we’re going to hold our breath until we turn blue. That’s not a position.”
Wait, did she just describe Mitch McConnell or the 42 attempts to repeal Obamacare? This is terribly confusing. The issue is that Obamacare has not only been passed into law, and survived 42 repeal attempts, deemed Constitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States, but also that Obama won handily, and the mandate is his. We the people voted for health care.
Bachmann reacted to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who said on Thursday that Republicans in Congress “Do not know what they want” by saying that the Democratic position has been ‘hilarious’.
Mediaite reports, “She summarized it as, “We win, and then after we win absolutely everything, then you can come over and we’ll talk.”
“That’s an insulting comment to make to the American people,” Bachmann continued. “Now it’s time for the president to actually lead and not be a passive participant and be a part of these talks.”
Ha ha ha. Yes it’s hilarious for Reid to suggest such a thing. Congressman Stutzman said in an interview with the Washington Examiner, “We’re not going to be disrespected. We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”
When asked what the House was doing, Representative Devin Nunes, Republican of California and a Boehner loyalist, recently said, “You really have to call Cruz, I’m not even joking about that. That’s really what you have to do, because he’s the one that set up the strategy, he’s the one that got us into this mess, and so we’ve got to know what the next move is.”
Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.) said, “I think now it’s a lot about pride,”
I thought they wanted a ‘conversation.’
Please proceed, GOP.
