After spending most of last year promising her Tea Party followers that she was going to repeal Obamacare, it appears that Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann just now learned how laws are made.
Steve King and I are best friends. And we both want to get Obamacare defunded. That’s the must have. The problem is the only way we could do it is if Obama and Harry Reid agreed with what we wanted to do.
It’s funny that she says this NOW. It’s like she just recently discovered that bills have to pass both the House and the Senate and be signed by the President.
This is a woman who campaigned on “repealing Obamacare”. At the the CPAC Conference last week, she said, “I take my first political breath every morning with one thought in mind: repeal Obamacare”. She introduced legislation LAST YEAR to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Now she suddenly realizes she can’t do it because Republicans don’t control the Senate nor do they have the Oval Office.
The reality, of course, is that Michele Bachmann is a consummate grandstander. She knows damn well her Tea Party flock aren’t worried about trivial things like political realities and Constitutionally-dictated law-making procedures. She can get away with this because most of her followers will believe anything she says.
That said, we damn well better get busy NOW getting our act together for the 2012 election. Because, if we don’t, hateful dimwits like Michele Bachmann WILL have control. And then this country will be in serious trouble for years and decades to come.
I’m just sayin’…
