Bachmann accuses President Obama of ‘waving a tar baby in the air’ - Still a Democrat - 04-20-2012 01:55 PM
Bachmann's press secretary insists Bachmann's statement 'had nothing to do with race'
Michelle Bachmann is back, and as incendiary as ever.
The Minnesota congresswoman and former Republican presidential candidate accused President Obama of "waving a tar baby in the air" on Thursday following his proposals that would give government regulators more authority to limit price manipulation in the oil market.
"This is just about waving a tar baby in the air and saying that something else is a problem," Bachmann told Florida-based conservative news organization Shark Tank on Wednesday.

Well anyone who thinks you can pray away the gay would use a racially derogatory term about the President.
She knew what she said, and she can run from it until hell freezes over, but she is a well known factor in the bigots of the GOP.

It takes a certain level of intelligence, a certain bit of education and social/political savvy to just STAY WAY from references which are incendiary even if by the odd chance you didn't mean it that way. Bachmann has none of those skills.
Dropping out of the race did not improve her, on that note.

Let me pull on the hip waders here before I go wading into anything Michelle Bachmann is coming up with.
There is no way in this world, you can convince me or anyone else, that she was not setting up a smoke screen to try and get some racist jab out there.
It is one of the very few things that can get that certain aspect of the right ginned up and going.
They know they are in deep trouble.
Edit to add.. expect attacks on the LGBT community, and Hispanics..and more attack on women to be in the offing. This is all the have folks.. hate of the other
