    Michele Bachmann's Historical Blunder

    Michele Bachmann's Historical Blunder

    A blunder of historical fact - not proportions - tainted Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann’s first visit to New Hampshire this weekend. Speaking to students and conservative activists in Manchester, the Tea Party activist encouraged the Granite state to be proud of its role in the Revolutionary War.

    “You’re the state where the shot was heard ‘round the world at Lexington and Concord,” Bachmann said at an event organized by the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire.

    The shot that started the America’s war for independence was, of course, fired in Massachusetts.
    When I call the TPs 'Teabrains' some may think I'm being unfairly harsh. Of course not all the TPs are stupid -- but some of their leaders most definitely are.

    This is what you get America.

    It's not that she is stupid. She's a revisionist. Like most Tea Partiers. It's not that these people don't care about history, it's that they have a vested interest in changing it. Massachusetts is a strong Liberal state. To even suggest that a strong Liberal state started the war would be... well simply unfathomable to these people.

    The far-righties go to their stand-by meaningless talking point.

    See, Whovian, anyone with a brain knows Obama misspoke. I'd like to think you realize that.

    Bachmann actually doesn't know what she said was wrong. She's an idiot. The reason the GOP power brokers funnel money to her is because idiots are easily manipulated and controlled -- like W., she would make an ideal puppet president.

    There is a huge difference between mis-speaking and being ignorant. Bachmann did not misspeak. You can add her to the growing list of intellectual lightweights that have already achieved the Peter Principle.

    Like when Obama said that his uncle's unit liberated Auschwitz? That kind of revision?

    No, I'm pretty sure she just got it wrong. History class was decades ago for her.

    Right...the Brokeback State of Mass. is not liberal in the least, neither is the City of Phily. To follow LIBERAL LOGIC one has to check the DNC talking point of the day and see what REVISION of history they are attempting to SPIN into the corner they are painting themselves with their own words. Of course YOU HATE Mrs. Palin and the Good Lady Mrs. Bachmann....because you fear her, the same way the Establishment feared Ronald Reagan. You pick on a simple mistake and label such as being stupid then you LEAP over the demonstrated and documented HUNDREDS of LIES coming from the White House in a single bound.....DA..TA...DA....SUPER PROGRESSIVE.
