Let's take a look into the way back machine.. 2009 the zombie-blue eyed Michelle Bachmann found a way to stick President Obama with that year's especially nasty outbreak of flu.

"I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. And I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence."

Politifact got that one right and rated it; a pants on fire lie.

Let's juxtapose that quote with Mrs. Bachmann's of last night.

"I want to express my deepest gratitude to the men and women of the U.S. military and intelligence community. Their persistence and dedicated service has yielded success in a mission that has gripped our nation since the terrible events of 9/11. Tonight’s news does not bring back the lives of the thousands of innocent people who were killed that day by Osama bin Laden’s horrific plan, and it does not end the threat posed by terrorists, but it is my hope that this is the beginning of the end of Sharia-compliant terrorism."

Sharia-compliant terrorism? No mention of President Obama's involvement? No fist bump for the flu guy?

So you think someone who can link bird flu to the sitting President, would be able to link the death of Osama Bin Laden to him as well. After all the President amped up our presence in Afghanistan and followed through on his campaign pledge to go after Bin Laden in Pakistan without their help if need be.

We all know why she's not going to give credit where it's due. It's much easier to run against the anti-American flu guy who wants to empty your wallet for his spending orgy and fill it with abortion coupons and a global currency that will replace the dollar. I for one, don't want to trade the greenback for the Vlad-Mao. And your kids in Barack Obama's America they could just walk into a sex clinic, and have a pregnancy test, be taken away to the local Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, have their abortion, and then be back on the school bus and just in time for the final pledge about gay rights instead of the pledge you grew up with. The one that was written by our founders who worked tirelessly to end slavery. The new pledge doesn't even rhyme; "homosexuality is normal, natural and I should try it." And all the while you'll never know your kid had an abortion because after you get an hour long interview at the door by some Census taker bureaucrat you'll be too busy driving your mother off to the death panels. Your kids and your parents won't be allowed to work for $2 an hour because that would solve our unemployment problem right there. As would allowing the 50% of all African Americans who don't survive the genocide that's going on in this country to live and work and buy products. We are also now running out of rich people in this country, we are becoming a nation of slaves as Barack Obama flys around the World on vacations for $200,000,000 a day, probably to perpetuate the global warming hoax. Carbon dioxide is natural, it is not harmful, it is a part of Earth's lifecycle. I take the President at his word that's he's born here.

Those were mostly direct quotes, and she's a serious candidate for President? President Obama must be giving the whole media the flu daily.

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.
