For no apparent reason, Michele Bachmann joined in on a discussion and agreeing with a suggestion that President Obama should be impeached. At a campaign stop in Iowa, Bachmann was asked by one of her supporters, “When will we impeach him and get him out of the way? We should be.”
Never missing an opportunity to appear insane, the Republican presidential hopeful replied, “Well, I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you, I agree, I agree. Some people are really upset.”
After the incident, campaign spokesperson Alice Stewart told CBS News: “She was not saying that she agrees that Obama should be impeached. She agreed with the man on what they were talking about before- that people are frustrated.”
The incident came after she gave her standard stump speech at Uncle Nancy’s coffee shop, a popular stop for presidential candidates courting voters in the first-in-the-nation caucus state. About 60 people turned out to hear Bachmann.
Now that Chris Christie has finally managed to convince Republicans that he is not running in 2012, Bachmann will easily fill that void the Christie supporters were looking for in a candidate – someone who speaks their mind, no matter how stupid or ridiculous that mind appears.
