How much damage has Obama cause Israel by his administrations' meddling in the ME alone?
Scarily, I agree with you, it's time the US stop meddling in the ME and let the chips fall where they may.

Reason enough not to vote for her.

Michele Bachmann Calls President Of Iran A 'Hater'


LOL

Yes, sending troops to go die in Iran is going to make us safe over here....

I wonder which one of her 20+ foster children she is willing to send to Iran?

Lemme guess... NONE?

Warmongers: we want war but we want YOU to do the dirty work for us!
What Ahmadinajad says means nothing. If they had weapons, it would be Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's call to "wipe anybody out". Ahmadinajad can't even wipe, well you know what, without approval of the Guardian Council. Bachmann's statements lead me to the conclusions:

1. Bachmann has no knowledge of the Iranian political power structure.

and/or

2. She is counting on our lack of said knowledge.

I believe it is 1 and 2.

That is why people need to educate themselves on the issue.

Translation: And as president of the United States, I would be willing to go to war with Iran despite the fact that they pose no threat to either of those three goals.

It's also funny to hear an evangelical politician comment on keeping America "free" when she's actually very opposed to the concept of freedom. Especially concerning citizens that she views as second class; the gays.

"Hater?" How old is she, 14?

Politics has now officially reached Middle School/MTV/Top 40 Pop status.
Right? I don't want a potential POTUS to be speaking teen speak.

"Ya'll are haters!"



In that debate, she also went on about how she was pro-life from "conception to natural death".

What is natural about dying in an unjust war? Pro life my arse.

I can only imagine Ahmadinejad's morning routine being brightened by the amusingly stupid American woman calling him a hater.

Is this elementary school thinking...name-calling? I'm sure the world would take her seriously, really.
