Previously, Bachman decided to speak-up on PajamasTV when she heard there was a new flu running about. It's a shame that an elected official doesn't have the mindset of most middle-school children who would have been able to consult Wikipedia to find out who the President was in 1976.
Now, Michelle is at it again. This time she's doing her best to channel Glenn Beck and trashing FDR for something he had no part in.
If you're not sure of how the story really goes, here's what TPM has to say.
When Franklin Roosevelt took office, unemployment was already about 25%. And the tariff referred to here was actually the Smoot-Hawley bill, co-authored by Republicans Sen. Reed Smoot of Utah and Rep. Willis Hawley of Oregon, and signed into law by President Herbert Hoover.
I keep revisiting this notion that the people that Bachman is charged with representing are actually fine, upstanding, and intelligent Americans. Now, more than ever, they need to consider booting Bachman from office. Would you honestly want a seething ignoramous representing you in Washington?
