Tea Party darling and outgoing Representative Michele “Crazy Eyes” Bachmann, took aim at the president’s climbing approval rating in an interview with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council on his Washington Watch radio show. After all, the far right of the Republican party cannot allow his approval approaching 50 percent while Congress’ ratings are still in single digits without challenging it in some way.
“Is there anything that you have seen over these last eight years that quite frankly surprised you,” Perkins asked.
“And I have been very surprised, to answer your question, to see the President of the United States, at every turn, cut the legs off of our ally, Israel, and in fact embrace and lift up the agenda of Islamic jihad,” Bachmann replied.
She went on to claim that the president has sneaked secret messages out to the Ayatollah, attempting to set up a private meeting with him even though Iran is attempting to build a nuclear weapon. The woman who was out-of-place on the Intelligence Committee thinks that the road to peace is found by not speaking to those with whom you disagree.
Of course she couldn’t resist another opportunity to paint all Muslims with the same broad brush.
“While the president continues to say that this is not about the religion of Islam, I beg to differ, this has everything to do with the tenets of Islam,” she said. “And it is a new state that’s being put together for the purpose of destroying Israel and to turn the United States also into an Islamic Caliphate.”
