Michelle Bachmann on a radio show yesterday had this to say about what Americans fear today.
[Bachmann:] "It really is about jobs and the economy. That doesn't mean people haven't [sic] forgotten about protecting life and marriage and the sanctity of the family. People are very concerned about that as well. But what people recognize is that there's a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline. They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union and our loss militarily going forward. And especially with this very bad debt ceiling bill, what we have done is given a favor to President Obama and the first thing he'll whack is five hundred billion out of the military defense at a time when we're fighting three wars. People recognize that."
Yep. According to Bachmann we fear THE SOVIET UNION. Would somebody tell her the Soviet Union doesn’t exist anymore and hasn’t existed for 20 years. Please.
I’m not kidding that’s what she said. You can hear her here: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/bachmann-american-people-are-concerned-about-rise-soviet-union
