Michele Bachmann Brags That She's A Traitor

Rate: 21 Flag

Freshly out of law school in 1988, Michele Bachmann went to work as a tax attorney for the IRS.  When she was hired to prosecute delinquent taxpayers she was required to take the following oath:

I, Michele Bachmann, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.  So help me God.

Twenty-three years later she is a semi-serious candidate for the Republican nomination for president.  However, the lions share of her support comes from a group of people that hate the IRS almost as much as they hate Barack Obama.

With the entry of Texas Governor Rick Perry into the race, Bachmann can no longer lay claim to being the most conservative person in the race, and suddenly her past employment with the KGB IRS lingered as an  issue that Perry might exploit.

So Bachman went into action.  She decided to do a little preemptive damage control.   At a campaign event in South Carolina she said:

 “I went to work in that system because the first rule of war is ‘know your enemy,’” she said Thursday in South Carolina. “So I went to the inside to learn how they work because I wanted to beat them.

In her own words Mrs. Bachmann infiltrated the agency that is responsible for collecting the nation's tax revenues, with the purpose of undermining that very agency.  She openly stated that the government that she swore to support and defend was the enemy.

Is there any difference between what Bachmann says that she did and a foreign enemy infiltrating the State Department?  No.

If the American voters collectively lose their minds and send this empty suit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, can we trust her to not have her fingers crossed on Inauguration Day?

The truth about Michele Bachmann is much less sinister and much less complicated than she would have us believe with her shoot-from-the-hip blabbering.  She's not a traitor... she's a liar... and a stupid one at that.

While playing cutesy with the Tea Party crowd did she not realize that her explanation as to why she fraternized with the enemy could be construed as an admission of disloyalty to the United States government that she now wants to lead?

When an earlier statement about being submissive to her husband came back to haunt her, she lied about that too and said that submission is the same as respect.

What Bachmann is really guilty of is making the assumption that American voters, other than the double-digit IQ ones that adore her every lame utterance, are dumb enough to believe her far-fetched and silly explanations.

Is Michele Bachmann a traitor?  No.  Is she a liar?  Yes.  Is she a moron?  Yes.

Two out of three ain't bad.

She is a fucking moron, and a dangerous one at that. She refuses to apologize, to admit she made a mistake. She would rather tell another lie, on top on another lie, to admit she made a mistake. She's a nut-job and now I hear Huntsman say's he will be her vice-president. I had a little respect for him, just a smiggin', but now he makes me want to puke for being a power-hungry worthless politician!
I think the key word in the oath is "mental." She probably thought "reservations" meant she would have to book a table at the IRS cafeteria.
Treason: It's OK if you're a Republican.
On behalf of the "fucking morons" of the world...I want to register a complaint.

You all have one hell of a lot of nerve classifying her as one of us. We've earned the right to be called fucking morons.

She's got a lot more work to do before she gets to our level.
I can't believe Bachman has any support at all and here she is running for President. Thank you for this post. It was right on. A sad tale.
Liar, moron, idiot, filled with so much pain that all she can do is pass it on to as many people as possible.
Imaging what her home life must be like, I just can't do it.
rated with love
Hope you're right : "The truth about Michele Bachmann is much less sinister."
It's interesting where she did her law degree - Tulsa's Oral Roberts University.
I know that 'electioneering' at the polls is forbidden, but perhaps it would be part of the "informed" populace to have monitors replaying the 10 stupidest things every candidate has said during their campaign playing repeatedly. Not electioneering, just giving the public one last reminder of the face, mouth and idiocy to the names on the ballot.

Perhaps then we can actually get folks to vote responsibly. Can you imagine how well Dan Quayle would do today in this Republican race? The dumbest thing he ever said was, "I always wanted to visit Latin America, but I never learned Latin."

I think she'll say or do anything to get more power. And then I think she intends to use that power to install as much of a theocracy as possible; she's disingenuous, but I think she actually does have deeply held beliefs and plans to act on them, unfortunately.

And they still are, and they still are . . .
Somewhere, I'm convinced there's a cosmic banana peel waiting for Michele Bachman's foot.

I hope that when she finally steps on it, she destroys her credibility for all time when all news cameras of the nation are on trained on her, and that her fall is spectacular and permanent and that her loss of standing in the public eye will be irreparable.

Can't happen soon enough to suit me.
She's smart, like a rabid squirrel!!!

And she's no traitor, she's sexy.

:D Just kidding, she's a moron!! :D

A moron who'll be in the White House soon. Then you can worry.

Nuclear holocaust!!! EEK!!

~flees into the thorn bushes~
Didn't she also advocate refusing to complete the census? Once upon a time she would have been a comic relief fringe candidate. Now she speaks for millions.
At first I thought your title was a joke, but then I remembered something that all registered American voters should take note of and strongly consider: She confused John Wayne with John Wayne Gacy. Oh yeah, and Elvis' death day was his birthday, apparently. Hmm.
Good one Roger.

Bachmann is the creation of the new Republican Party.

What was once fringe, is now center for them.

For them meaning: not for the people.

She was laughable prior to Palin, now they're both considered presidential. Such is life, or the end there of.
Great Post! When you watch Bachmann altering her thoughtless statements - you can see that behind her eyes; they're spinning like the reel of a slot machine. R
