Bachmann is out of office, fleeing political life one step ahead of being caught out in her ethics violations. But she’s still happy to lie for her cause, and brag about defeating liberals.
Well, telling the truth bothers them,Bachmann said.They don’t like to have the truth told about them, and that’s really what it is. I didn’t fear the left. I decided to take them on in the arena of ideas by attacking their false premises and their false narratives.
Bachmann told World Net Daily, which referred to her as aGOP legendin the headline, that she had become a media target because she had basically outsmarted her liberal foes.
That’s the best way to defeat them, by the way — defeat them with evidence and defeat them with their false premises, and I did that,she said.
As Right Wing Watch noted, Bachmann was so noted for her false claims that the chief fact checker for the Associated Press established a “self-imposed Michele Bachmann quota,” and Politifact found the Minnesota Republican had the worst record for accuracy by far of any 2012 presidential candidate.
She was also a complete dud in congress.
“She has an extraordinarily high profile for a lawmaker who has not produced significant legislative accomplishments,” Pearson said. There are other, lower-key lawmakers with similar résumés, she said, “but the difference is, we’re not talking about them when they retire.”
“She never made it into any important committee leadership posts,” the DFL’s Udhal said. “She didn’t have the power to bring things forward to help citizens.”
Right-wingers must live on Planet Delusia.
