GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann was on MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Hardball earlier today. When asked if Barack Obama had anti-American views, she responded “Absolutely. I’m very concerned that he may have anti-American views.”
She also said the people Barack Obama has been associating with are “Anti-American.” She also wants the news media to investigate if any other Democratic members of Congress have “Anti-American views.”
Bachmann also said the media has been avoiding the Barack Obama/Bill Ayres connection.
