Bachmann tells Waverly IA crowd that were she president, we wouldnt have an American embassy in Iran. The US broke ties w Iran in 1980.

13. Not withstanding the obvious...
Not withstanding the obvious, the woman is an idiot. I've been fortunate to have had many friends from Iran, while living is Switzerland, and all of them love the US (excluding some of our foreign policies). America needs to grow up, the world is not hiding under our beds and out to get us. Grow up, the boogy man is not out there, he's here in the ignorance of our populace.

16. You know what is even sadder?
Boenher probably doesn't know that we haven't had an embassy in Iran since the 80's, and he's going "WTF is the fuss about....I agree with her."
