Michele Bachmann Won't Back Up CPAC Lies She Told About Obama, Runs from CNN: VIDEO


Michele Bachmann fled CNN reporter Dana Bash when she tried to ask about claims she made over the weekend at CPAC about White House expenses, trying to turn the conversation back to Benghazi.


What did Bachmann say at CPAC?

"A new book is out talking about the perks and the excess of the $1.4-billion-a-year presidency that we're paying for. And this is a lifestyle that is one of excess. Now we find out that there are five chefs on Air Force One. There are two projectionists who operate the White House movie theater. They regularly sleep at the White House in order to be readily available in case the first family wants a really, really late show. And I don't mean to be petty here, but can't they just push the play button? We are also the ones who are paying for someone to walk the president's dog, paying for someone to walk the president's dog? Now, why are we doing that when we can't even get a disabled veteran into the White House for a White House tour? That isn't caring!"

  2. Why is anyone surprised at this?

    Mrs. Bachman (I mean Michelle, not Marcus) is employed the usual Republican tactic of making up BS and repeating them until they become "fact". When called out on her lies, Michelle relies on mores tricks from the GOP playbook: avoid the subject, deflect the issue, parrot the same inanities ("FOUR DEAD AMERICANS!" is the new GOP mantra), and run like a coward.

    Congrats on Dana. These shysters can't keep pulling these dog & pony shows if they keep getting called out on it.

  3. "Lying coward" doesn't even come close to adequately describing her. Part of the problem is that the media has let these excrement-for-brains-bigots get away with their lies for so long, that they know that *can* tell the most outrageous lies with impunity.

    This woman is proof of biological atavism.

  6. Hey Michelle, you know what that disabled vet would like more than a White House Tour? How about some decent Veterans BENEFITS so he doesn't end up living in poverty like so many of our brave soldiers. Try that on for caring.

  7. She is necessary in the American political system: Someone has to be the lowest of the low and the most despicable.

  9. Such a vile, cowardly, stupid, pathological, intolerant, lying, conniving creature she is.


    I don't like her!

  10. Too many in the rural South will believe this utter BS.

  11. I bet that was a poisoned apple Michelle was carrying.

  12. Even if the idiots in her district keep electing her, why, I repeat WHY, does the press keep giving this obviously deluded woman a forum? And why do the rest of us watch. If we all just turned off CNN/Fox/CBS/NBC/ABC/HLN and all the other outlets that waste airtime on the verbal diarrhea of Coulter,Bachmann,and the rest of the hit and run "pundits," their loose grasp on the truth would not longer get airtime.

  13. She's just so Christian, isn't she? Nothing says "I love Jesus" like making false accusations about someone and then running from it when confronted. What an ignorant _________.

  14. She barely won re-election this past November in her own congressional district (50.6% vs. 49.4% for Jim Graves), yet she gets this kind of national exposure, because she's willing to spread lies.

  15. This is one of the dumbest and hypocritical women and one of the biggest liars out there! She says some of the stupidest, most ignorant things and then either denies or runs away when questioned. I would not vote her in for dog catcher nor would I trust anything that comes out of her mouth. And she calls herself a Christian.......her words and behavior are neither

  16. The Republicans have such short memories; George W. Bush spent almost 1/5 of his presidency (or nearly 2 1/2 years out of 8 years) on vacation or at his ranch, let alone the endless rounds of golf ("Now watch this drive"). But Obama goes out for an afternoon of golf, or goes home to Hawaii for the holidays, and it's a national scandal. (Translation: the lazy black man is taking your money.) The hypocrisy never ends with these folks.

  17. Ugh CNN is also annoying for calling it "questionable comments". A lie is a lie CNN, call it what it is.

  18. And don't forget she sends out bullitins almost daily full of lies to get money

  19. Bachmann is a pig. She belongs on the CPAC stage with fellow pigs like Donald Chump and the Defender of Marriage, the serial adulterer Gingrich.

  20. What Michelle Bachman needs is what she has been missing for quite sometime - and that is a good spanking by a her gang bangers. She is not only a disgrace to all women, but a disgrace to any scum who crawls under a rotten rock - she is the reason for giving these scums such a bad name.

  21. Keep her out there. Keep an open mic on her at all times. She is the best thing for the DNC since Sarah whatsherface. No, don't keep this loon in a dark corner...trot her out in front of a camera or mic and let the looniness it will, most assuredly. Every time she opens her mouth, three more voters go to the Dems. Give her a show on days a week! Let's prime that loony pump (otherwise known as the GOP) and let them have all the airtime they want...all the more rope to hang themselves. Make a drinking game out of it...every time Michelle lies, take a drink! You may be passed out by the first commercial break, however.

  24. I agree with the poster "millerbeach".
    Let 'em talk, and keep talking. Their ignorance & bigotry know no boundaries.

  25. Michele Bachmann is a living and breathing advertisement for lobotomies.
