Politico is carrying a rebuttal today from Rep. Michele Bachmann on her appearance on Hardball on MSNBC last week.
Fact checking here is pretty easy.
“I never called all liberals anti-American,” the piece is titled. That’s true. She didn’t. She was even asked specifically whether Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi were unamerican. She declined to say they were. But she also declined to say they weren’t.
“I never questioned Barack Obama’s patriotism.”
That’s false. Saying one is “concerned” that he may hold anti-American views is a question. It may not be an answer, but it is a question.
“I never asked for some House Un-American Activities Committee witch hunt into my colleagues in Congress.” – True she asked the media to do it.
