    Default Michele Bachmann wrongly links swine flu to Democratic Presidents

    Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, following Rush Limbaugh's cue, suggested on Tuesday that President Obama was to blame for the swine flu crisis. She went even farther than the talk show host, implying that swine flu epidemics are a Democratic phenomenon that dates back to President Carter.

    "I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter. And I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence."

    Unfortunately, Bachmann's facts are a little off. As Glenn Thrush notes, Republican President Gerald Ford, not Carter, led the country during the last outbreak of the virus.

    What the fuck? How does she even begin to rationalize a statement like that.. Democrats have cooties now? They have a secret socialist arsenal chock full of infectious diseases ready to unleash on society... next to Karl Marx's cryogenically frozen head? Fucking idiot.

    I apologize for even looking at people who voted for that moron. She sucks at common sense, science AND history.

    Isn't she even embarrassed by own retardation? I guess that would require a brain, though.

    If I were the GOP, I'd keep her locked in a closet.

    Democrats give swine flu, Republicans give you AIDS. Everybody loses.

    I hope her constituents regret re-electing her. That dumb ass is going to be speaking publicly and voting for them for another year and a half.

    I said in another thread on the swine flu that this would happen. The Republicans never let me down.

    Hello mother fucker! when you ask a question read also the answer instead of asking another question on an answer who already contain the answer of your next question!

    No offense to Minnesotans, but I hope she does. We need the Republicans to constantly show their ass, say the same things that I've heard for years from Republican citizens (channeling Rush.)

    They need constant reminders that this is the 3 Stooges party.

    I'm so tired of Jimmy Carter bashing from the Republicans. He's supposedly the worst president ever, yet he still left with a better approval rating than Bush, so suck it.
