But, then she started making up “facts” first about Rick Perry, now about Newt Ace has the latest
Michele Bachmann: A Crying Woman Came Up To Me After The Debate And Told Me Newt Gingrich Is Paying Money To Tea Party Groups For Their Endorsement
I made the part up about the “crying woman,” but yes, that is the newest allegation from Ms. Bachmann.
Michele Bachmann lives in a strange world. People talk about “moral relativism.” Presumably they would claim she’s not a moral relativist.
But truth is an objective fact, is it not?
Ms. Bachmann seems to confuse premises which are politically helpful to her for premises which are actually true.
William Jacobson lists some of Bachmann’s earlier tactics here
She has not been “accurate” in her portrayal of her own immigration statements earlier in the debates, and she is running around repeating endlessly something that is patently false, that Newt Gingrich wants amnesty for 11 million people, and she has falsely termed a letter Gingrich (along with Grover Norquist, Jack Kemp and others) signed in 2004 in support of a guest worker program an “amnesty” plan. Repeating things endlessly does not make them true, and we can do better than that.
Her performance in going after Rick Perry caused Steve Hayward of Power Line Blog to give up on her.
She has been the only candidate explicitly to try to take advantage of Herman Cain’s latest problems by saying it shows that she is the only consistent candidate.
Truly sad, Bachmann behaves more like a Democrat all the time. As I have said before, I do not mind candidates going after each others records but this fabrication game ought to be beneath a Conservative.
