MICHELE BACHMANN DEPARTS: REPUBLICANS, DEMOCRATS REJOICE - THE QUOTES YOU'LL MISS
"You say high.
I say low.
You say yes.
I say no.
HAY LA! BABY HELLO!
HAY LA! YOU SAY HELLO, I SAY GOODBYE!"
A Beatles' sort of goodbye to Michele Bachmann.
CRAZY-EYES BACHMANN SURRENDERS!!! She claims it has nothing to do with investigations into redirecting funds from her silly Prez bid to illegal purposes. She claims it has more to do with her view that a US Rep should serve no more than the same 8 years allowed a President. REALLY Michele?? Never heard that one before! LMAO. She also claims it has nothing to do with the likelihood of losing next year. A former MN state RepubliCon chair, Ron Carey, said: “This is a great chance to exit stage right rather than have a knockdown, drag-out re-election fight. The reality also set in that she is not a favorite of Republican leadership, so she is not going to be rising up to a committee chair or rising up in leadership.” If she's being torn apart the same day she steps aside by MN GOP leadership, I wonder just WHO she IS a 'favorite of?' Another observer said she will have the chance to blink for the first time in years. Here is the sort of intellectual commentary that the US House and the American public will be deprived of now that Michele Bachmann will reside in that House no longer after the next election.
“Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.”
On the anniversary of his death: “Before we get started, let's all say 'Happy Birthday' to Elvis Presley today.”
"Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit that I have, too." Bachmann, who is from Iowa, mistook John Wayne the actor for John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer.
“"I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter. And I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence.” Which actually happened under Gerald Ford as she was trying to blame Carter and Obama for influenza strains.
“You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world at Lexington and Concord.” Unfortunately for Bachmann and her stupefied audience, she wasn’t in Mass., she was in New Hampshire.
“We're running out of rich people in this country.”
“I do support a constitutional amendment on marriage between a man and a woman, but I would not be going into the states to overturn their state law.”
Michele tries outrunning CNN's Dana Bash just weeks ago.
"If we took away the minimum wage -- if conceivably it was gone -- we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level."
"But we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States. ... I think it is high time that we recognize the contribution of our forbearers who worked tirelessly -- men like John Quincy Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country." Bachmann botching 5th grade US History, unaware that most of the ‘founding fathers’ of which she spoke and is supposedly so fond actually OWNED slaves and that John Q. Adams was 8 years old at the time of the ‘founding fathers’ founding of the nation.
