Michele Bachmann: Presidential debates made me a ‘virtual Wikipedia’


Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota on Monday claimed she never said anything factually incorrect during the Republican presidential primary debates in 2011.
“It was a very good experience because I think that challenges are very good for us,” she said at the Patrick Henry College in Virginia. “I made a decision when I started I wouldn’t whine about the press and I wouldn’t whine about press coverage because I knew that it would be negative. What it did is it forced me to be better and stronger and to think through what I was going to say.”

“If you’re a conservative you can never get anything wrong and I was very proud of the fact that I didn’t get anything wrong that I said during the course of the debates,” Bachmann continued. “I didn’t get anything wrong and that’s a huge arena. Other than debating the president for the final debates, this stage doesn’t get any larger. I was privileged to be a part of fifteen presidential debates. It forces a person to be better. You have to be a virtual Wikipedia. We have no idea what the questions are going to be.”

Associated Press editor Jim Drinkard joked last year that the news agency had “a self-imposed Michele Bachmann quota” regarding fact-checking, because trying to vet all of her statements would “overload” them.

During the Republican presidential primary debates, Bachmann claimed the HPV vaccine could cause mental retardation. She also claimed President Barack Obama had “the lowest public approval ratings of any president in modern times,” accused former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney of implementing “socialized medicine,” and said the U.S. “will be paying for the entire People’s Liberation Army of China” by 2015.
