Michelle Bachmann is in complete agreement with John Boehner. Should the GOP take the House in November, they shouldn't focus on jobs, two wars, the North Korean threat, the disaster in the Gulf, crumbling infrastructure, or anything else.

For Missy, there's only one thing that the GOP should do: issue subpoenas! Go after the Obama administration!

Should Republicans take back the House in November, Rep. Michele Bachmann said she wants the GOP to focus all of its attention on issuing subpoenas and holding hearings investigating the Obama administration and Democrats.

"I think that’s all we should do," Bachmann said at the GOP Youth Convention in Washington on Thursday. "I think all we should do is issue subpoenas and have one hearing after another and expose all the nonsense that has gone on."

Bachmann said that Republicans have all their chips on the table in November. "This is the year — this is it," she said.

So, Democrats - there you have it. The GOP has made it very plain what they intend to do should they take the House. It's up to us to make sure that all Americans know their plans.

Darryl Issa has promised that he will subpoena the Obama administration if the GOP takes the House. He's already making plans to hire dozens of subpoena-wielding investigators.

John Boehner wants to shut down Federal government for a year - except for making the Bush tax cuts permanent.

Now Michelle Bachmann has told us that the GOP plan is just to investigate, investigate, investigate.

"This is the year — this is it,", she say.

What bigger opening do the Democrats need to stomp these pea-brains into the ground? Moving forward and attempting to deal with America's very real problems? Or spending the next two years tied up in a Fox-News orgasm for Congressional investigations that go absolutely nowhere, while making sure the nation doesn't, either?

Here is your choice, America.

[Update - thanks to puzzled, here's the audio of Bachmann saying "That's all we should do." Plus much, much more - incredibly short-sighted lunatic-fringe promises of repealing Obamacare and making sure that government doesn't own "65% of private industry" anymore! (Where does this woman get her information, anyway?)]

[Update II: Here's where to show your mometary love and regard for Bachmann's opponent, fellow Kossack Tarryl Clark. We can do this!]

[Louise's "thank you" - getting on the rec list is always a thrill! You've all made my day.]

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
