Michele Bachmann: Democrats want Americans to live in tenements and take light rail to work

:crazy: as hell!

from the American Family Association's (also :crazy: as hell) OneNewsNow:

An urban America -- the Democrats' vision?
Jim Brown - OneNewsNow - 8/6/2008 7:10:00 AM

A Minnesota congresswoman says the United States is the only country that has made it illegal to access its own energy.

House Republicans are continuing their revolt against Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her decision to adjourn the House without a vote on offshore oil drilling to lower gas prices. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich plans to join House Republicans in the Capitol this morning to join the protest.

Representative Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota) says it has not escaped Democrats what the cost of gasoline and loss of jobs are doing to the country.

"This is their agenda," Bachmann states bluntly. "I know it is hard to believe, it's hard to fathom -- but this is 'mission accomplished' for them," she asserts. "They want Americans to take transit and move to the inner cities. They want Americans to move to the urban core, live in tenements, (and) take light rail to their government jobs. That's their vision for America."

Bachmann predicts gasoline will rise above $5 a gallon if Barack Obama is elected president. (if the link gets Rick-rolled, as is certain to happen, you can access it from the AFA's homepage )
