Bachmann: Obama Was Elected Because Of White Guilt

DYLAN SCOTT – FEBRUARY 20, 2014, 12:37 PM EST

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) thinks part of the reason Barack Obama was elected president was "because of guilt" -- a guilt that wouldn't exist for a female presidential candidate.

“I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt," Bachmann told conservative columnist Cal Thomas in comments flagged by the Huffington Post. “People don’t hold guilt for a woman."

Bachmann added that she didn't see a "pent-up desire" for a woman president. She ran for the GOP's presidential nomination in 2012 and is not seeking re-election to the House in 2014.

9. No. He was elected because he promised to lead as a Democrat.

Democrats, at least the ones I follow, believe in using the powers of government to make life better for ALL Americans, not just the rich and their corporations.

The Have-Mores already had a party. How were we to know they'd get greedy and before everyone got served take two?

PS: Cal Thomas is a NAZI.

15. I don't know how she fares lawyer wise in lawyer society since we know,

we meaning non lawyer types ,we know that lawyers really only like other lawyers. Now, that a broad general statement and to be fair I would say some of them not all of them are that way.

I think Bachmann does engage her brain before she speaks essentially addressing the generality
aka common folk , and I think she may even rack her brain gearing down to a understandable language medium that will seem to be both understandable and reliable to the average or even below average , like Palin.

But I think to do that she has to revert to herself before law school as a everyday person but what is refereed to in lawyer society as a lawyer in training. And when she goes there what she is unaware of is her own stupidity . And I think her being unaware of her own stupidity is just what makes her so funny.

If she were truly as smart as she will think to believe she is, she would not be running her mouth the way she does .

She can revert down to everyday common language speaking to non lawyer types but she cannot bring anything down of real meaningful substance of any lasting quality. Her own stupidity gets her every time.

The average voter can simply say- well, don't ya know I was fooled by it. More of a common acknowledged stupidity as in everybody stumbles once in a while.

If only to capture the moment.

Ok done here !

17. Shelley dear, you didn't lose because of a lack of desire for a woman president.

 

You lost because of the lack of desire for a batshit crazy president.

Moreover, you were too batshit crazy for Republicans. Think on that a while...

24. No Obama was elected because voters didn't want a third Bush (McCain) running things.

And he was reelected because his challenger was the blandest, most boring white collar centrist ever to be considered presidential material.

33. I wish someone

would've immediately fired back at her comment by mentioning the losing presidential bids of both Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. If there really was such a strong sense of "white guilt" here, this country would've had a Black president long before I was born! It took America over 200 years since its founding just to elect a President who isn't fully White (even Obama is 1/2 White). As I said in EarlG's thread, it has become so easy to refute these guys that it's scary.

But that kind of cray cray can't be reasoned with or cured. Much like Sister Sarah Alaskastan - at least the idiot makes me laugh out loud.


I swear - if I ever saw this dumb ass in person I would just start laughing maniacally.
