Nevertheless, Michele sometimes outdoes herself. Case in point, her latest "not-a-gaffe" gaffe; this one's a doozy, folks:
Michele Bachmann has had her fair share of foreign policy stumbles, but she just hit a whole new level.
According to a tweet from NBC News’ Jamie Novogrod, Bachmann responded to the recent raiding of the British embassy in Iran, by saying that if she was President, she would close down the U.S. embassy there.
There’s just one problem: The U.S. has not had an embassy in Iran ever since the Iranian hostage crisis, when revolutionaries from the budding Islamic state held 52 Americans for 444 days.
Michele, I thought you were on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence? Has campaigning worsened your memory? Or is this another not-a-gaffe gaffe?
Apparently, it's not a gaffe when you seem to have been asleep for the last thirty years. Or is it that it's a thing of no consequence, in this soon-to-be-over Cain/Perry/Bachmann Age? C'mon, Republicans! You can do better than this! This is embarrassing. Weren't you guys supposed to be expert in matters of foreign policy and national security? You're going to force President Obama to make even more apologies around the world for our stupid and woefully uninformed politicians.
But don't worry, Repugs. Obama won't be able to get around to that until sometime in 2014, during his second term.ittee?
