Delusional Michele Bachmann Thinks President Obama Has Virtually Guaranteed World War III

bachmann

In an interview on The News Hour radio program, former GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachmann called Barack Obama the worst President ever. She also asserted that his policies will lead to World War III. Her claim that the President would lead us into World War III was made in response to a question from host Dan Maduri. Maduri asked:

How do you feel about President Obama embracing our traditional enemies like Cuba and Iran. Is he going down a dangerous path?

Bachmann’s rambling response was:

That’s the worst thing that could happen. This literally is the worst part of the Obama presidency. You can get economics wrong and you can turn it around. We saw Ronald Reagan do that in a remarkable way. Where we do have problems decades into the future are disasters with foreign policy. We had, prior to this time, four state designated sponsors of terror in the world, Iran being the worst.

Obama, for some inexplicable reason, has decided that he wants to elevate Iran, he wants to do away with all the designation the state sponsors of terror and he wants to bring Iran equal to any other country in the world and help them economically and militarily for no reason at all. This puts Iran in a position where they would have the fire power to be able to take out not only Israel, but they would have the fire power to use intercontinental ballistic missiles against the United States with nuclear chipped warheads.

This virtually guarantees in my opinion, World War 3 and I think that alone would qualify Barack Obama for being the worst president that the United States has ever had to endure.

Michele Bachmann, like Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, has long had a paranoid fixation on Iran. She is so obsessed with Iran, that she even tried to persuade President Obama to bomb Iran, during a White House Christmas Party. Her irrational fear that diplomacy will provoke a third World War puts her in the absurdly ironic position where she would launch a war to try to prevent a war.

Fortunately for America, Michele Bachmann no longer holds an elected office. Unfortunately, she still commands a Tea Party following, and her ideology still holds sway in the halls of Congress, where Representatives like Steve King and Louie Gohmert, and Senators like Tom Cotton and Joni Ernst, carry on her style of crazy.

The nuclear agreement with Iran, that was not only supported by Barack Obama, but by cooperative leaders from several other nations as well, makes war less, not more likely. However, dangerous Tea Party ideologues like Michele Bachmann and her ilk, believe compromise and diplomacy are to be avoided at all costs. Instead, she prefers an unprovoked military strike on Iran. For some peculiar reason, she thinks the way to avoid a World War is not diplomacy, but for the United States to launch a Pearl Harbor style attack on Iran, at a time when Iran is showing a willingness to meet at the negotiating table.

Her dangerously delusional view of foreign policy should be rejected. Unfortunately, it appears to be a view that is widely accepted by Republican members of Congress, even if many of them are less bombastic than Bachmann in articulating that position.  The Tom Cotton Iran letter, signed by 47 Republican Senators in March, revealed the delusional mindset of many within the GOP who are hell-bent on thwarting diplomacy at every turn. While many of those Senators never verbally accused President Obama of trying to start World War III, they nevertheless tried to undermine the President’s diplomatic efforts in a way that would make war, more, rather than less likely. Like Michele Bachmann, they too should have their views rejected, by reasonable people who understand the value of diplomacy.

  1. Why does the media keep bringing back this idiot. She’s gone, now please stay under the rock she came from. Her opinions didn’t mean much before and it’s the same now. Remember you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Woof woof!!!

  2. Michele “Chicken Little” Bachmann has a penchant for taking unsubstantiated, isolated anecdotal accounts, wild rumors spawned from the right wing blogosphere, and her own personal delusions and using them as the basis for formulating public policy.

    This is largely the result of her inability or unwillingness to do her homework before making public comments regarding important foreign policy decisions, science-related issues, societal topics, and historical events.

    Who needs verifiable evidence, unbiased comprehensive data, fact-checking, and sound reasoning when you can rely upon highly speculative supposition and inflammatory innuendo instead?

  3. WHY? Why? Is Michelle, Batchit, Bachman still is given a microphone or media attention to embarrass her crazy a$$ self. WHO CARES WHAT THAT WOMAN HAS TO SAY? She has no persuassion in the national discourse–WHATSOEVER! So why is she allowed to vent her crazyness? Is it because the media thinks that she is goofy matter, good for sales and attention? Michelle is like Cheney: Absolutely OUT OF THIS WOOOOOORLD. But, for a laugh and a cringe they bring these two has beens back to torture us (No pun intended, Mr. Cheney).

  4. A blast from the past and still funny as hell.
    Lunch Discussions #145: The Crazification Factor

    John: … I mean, what will it take? That last speech literally made no sense. It was crazy drunken bar talk! Islamic radicals are like COMMUNISM?! (gets speech on laptop) If we don’t fight terrorists in Iraq they’ll build a fundamentalist terrorist state stretching from Spain to Indonesia? What the fuck? Even assuming Spain, which last time I checked is 95% Roman Catholic, goes down, you gotta assume France, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, all eight hundred million Hindus in India, Burma, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore would be somewhat of an obstacle

  5. When did the President say he was going to help Iran economically and militarily? When did he say he was going to take Iran off the state sponsored terrorists list?

    Have I missed something?

    Just another Republican on the fringe trying to find relevance.

  6. Why doesn’t she just shut up sit down and just count the money she got from her government welfare check?

  7. She’s a RethugliCon/Teabaggie, they somehow don’t do jail time ala Tom Delay. The woman is not delusional, she’s crazy as ever.
    Maybe she’s hoping for a comback in DC. She must miss the moola and having the cameras on her at every turn.

  8. My thought exactly. Why would anyone interview Michele Bachmann? She’s never uttered a rational sentence in her life.

  9. Why do they report anything that escapes the mouth of this batshit crazy loon? I don’t ever want to hear anything about her or from her. We finally got rid of her and she certainly is not relevant to anything. She is nuts and anything she drivels out proves it.

    ..

  10. Considering the size of the Hard-on that 47 Republicans have for a war with Iran, I fail to see her problem with Obama.

  11. Cause it isn’t illegal to be STUPID!! Guess she never heard “Keep You Friends Close, and Your Enemies Closer”! I do agree, it should be illegal for anyone to be as stupid as she is. At least lock up the idiots that elected her to office.

  12. Can any of you answer her question though? Why is Obama helping Iran? Why? To me, giving them the opportunity to develop nuclear weapons makes no sense whatsoever if he is supposed to be looking after America’s best interests. This deal has made the world far less safe and I think Bachman is right, he is one of the worst presidents, if not the worst ever.

  13. Are you brain dead. Helping Iran get the bomb? First bagger the agreement would limit them to 6000 centrifuges. Right now they have over 19,000. You do know what centrifuges are use for? Second they can only enriched their uranium to 3% For a bomb you need 20% All their sites would be under inspections. So only in your paranoid world would that be considered helping them get a bomb. You people are stupid

  14. Helping Iran??? Obama’s ramped up sanctions have economically crippled the country. Sanctions that the world agreed on, unlike past sanctions from past presidents. We have been beating them down for years, and now when we slow down the beating it is considered ‘helping’? We and the world are still standing on their throats, don’t be fooled.
