Crazy Rightwing Bachmann Denies She Ever Called Obama ‘Anti-American’»

I blogged a post last Friday after right-wing nutjob Representative Michele Bachmann appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball (see my post here) where she called for a McCarthy like investigation into the “anti-American views” of members of Congress. This of course ignited the Liberal Bloggasphere and Bachmann has come under a withering storm of criticism. Her opponent — Democrat Elwyn Tinklenberg — has raised over $640,000 since Bachmann’s nutty comments.

Yesterday morning, Representative Bachmann tried to undo the damage she had done to her self. Appearing on the CBS affiliate in Minneapolis, St. Paul, WCCO, Bachmann denied she ever called Barack Obama’s views “anti-American.”

HOST: You do feel his [Obama’s] views are anti-American?

BACHMANN: I feel his views are concerning. I’m calling on the media to investigate them. I’m not saying that his views are anti-American. That was a misreading of what I said. And so I don’t believe that’s my position. I’m calling on the media to
take a look at what his views are.
This of course is a comple and utter lie, noteful only in how bold a lie it is. Here’s what Michele Bachmann actually said during her Hardball interview:

CHRIS MATTHEWS: So you believe that Barack Obama may have anti-American views?

BACHMANN: Absolutely. I’m very concerned he may have anti-American views.
Also in her Hardball appearance, Michelle Bachmann said:
“The news media should do a penetrating exposé [into the] views of the people in Congress and find out if they’re pro-America or anti-America.”
