Here’s what she said, complete, and in context:
“What people recognise is that there’s a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline. They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union, and our loss militarily going forward. And especially with this very bad debt ceiling bill, what we’ve done is given a favour to President Obama, and the first thing he’ll whack is 500 billion (14.6 trillion Roubles. 347 billion Euros. 304 billion UK Pounds) out of the military defence at a time when we’re fighting three wars. People recognise that”, Bachmann said on conservative activist Jay Sekulow’s show.
Editor’s Snarky Aside:
By the way, the actual 2011 DoD budget was 685 billion USD (20 trillion Roubles. 476 billion Euros. 416 billion UK Pounds)… which proves that Motormouth Michele does absolutely no research or vetting before opening her Southern-fried yap. Crazy world, ain’t it? It tells you a great deal about much of America to know that many take this popinjay seriously…
I didn’t think highly of Motormouth Michele’s intelligence before this… after all, anyone who believes “Born Again” nonsense (or is in sympathy with those who do) has a few empty rooms to let upstairs. “The rise of the Soviet Union”…? That’s boobish, even using the low standards that one must apply to unwashed Sectarian yobbos. Earth to Michele… the USSR disappeared TWENTY YEARS AGO… IN 1991… It was ALL OVER THE TV. Ms Bachmann was 35-years-old then, she wasn’t a kid; she and her hubby were running a so-called “Christian Counselling Centre”.
As an aside… I’d like to know what “Christian Counselling” is… her husband has “degrees” from Regent University and Union Institute and University, two Podunk U Born Again degree mills. That means that he can’t be an incardinated psychologist under full APA guidelines. The Union University PhD programme is a crank “Interdisciplinary Studies” charade. That is… the guy’s no certified psychologist… he’s mucking about with people’s heads without proper training. It tells you much about his wife, Michele, doesn’t it (her law degree is from Oral Roberts University (sic), another derisory Born Again degree mill)?
As I said, this is DUMB even by the abysmal standards that one must use in vetting statements by any rightwinger. Here’s the scary part… she’s NOT smokin’ kick-ass weed… she’s not drinkin’ no-nonsense samogon… this is her natural state. THIS is what the party of Lincoln, TR, Ike, Barry, and Nixon has degenerated into. One can see why Julie Nixon Eisenhower, Frank Schaeffer, and C C Goldwater left the Republican Party, I certainly did. Gibbering baboons such as Kingfish Rush, Lil’ Mizz Sarah, and Motormouth Michele convinced me that the contemporary Republican Party had spat on its heritage and was embracing Boobosity with full fervour. That’s sad… but it’s the truth. This is too much of a muchness… “rise of the Soviet Union”… how much more ignorant can a supposedly-educated person get? Ponder this… it’s not going to concern her fans one bit… they know even LESS. They can vote… but so can you. Get up and do so…
A Note to All Orthodox Christians:
Paffhausen and Potapov approve of Bachmann’s emptyheaded maunderings… as do Dreher and the Coneheads at “OCA Truth” and Darling Marilyn’s clique at “OCA Laity” (will I get another prissy and snarling rebuke from Rebecca the Ad Queen? Let’s see…)… caveat lector!
