Left Edits Bachmann Speech To Create Whitey Scandal

The Left will stop at nothing to destroy every Republican candidate who steps forward this election cycle to challenge The One. He has proven to be a colossal failure of a president, who the American people have figured out is totally consumed by the pomp and circumstance of the office incapable of being a serious leader, so they must engage in character assassination against every potential opponent to protect him from the same fate dealt to another big time loser of a president, former President Jimmy Carter. The Left has actually edited a speech given by U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann to a group of Iowa voters to make it appear she said, "Who likes white people?" The question drew a roar of approval from her audience. The only problem was that she actually asked the crowd, "Who likes wet people?" You see, it was pouring down rain while she delivered her speech. The Daily Caller sets the records straight on the audio recording that has gone viral on a number of liberal websites today:

Ever a magnet for controversy, Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is once again the subject of a vicious rumor. A doctored video surfaced this week that appears to show Bachmann asking an audience, “Who likes white people?”
Accusations of racism followed, as blogs and websites including Wonkette used the video as evidence of Bachmann’s extreme views.
Alice Stewart, a spokesperson for Bachmann’s presidential campaign, explained to The Daily Caller: “She said, ‘Who likes wet people?’ It was pouring down rain that night.”
A Yahoo News report also laid the rumor to rest by pointing out that when Bachmann seized the microphone on stage, her audience was soaking wet and as a way to lighten the mood, she jokingly asked, “Who likes wet people?” Immediately after, Bachmann said, “Yeah, that’s right. Because we have the God of the winds and the rain don’t we?” That phrase was not included in the doctored video.
The comments were made at the Midwest Spirit Christian Music Festival on August 5 in West Des Moines, Iowa. Bachmann gave a speech about her Christian faith.

DMC has a point: You make really wild accusations about President Obama, and smear him at every opportunity no matter how weak (an uncle was arrested for a DUI... Really?!?) You also never acknowledged the editing of the conversation with the NPR executive-even though you featured it on your blog.

All that aside - It's Bachmann's religious beliefs that she was there to speak about... and they are scary as hell. Far worse than any manufactured controversy about "Whitey".

Normally in my view, religious beliefs are personal. However Bachmann has made her religious beliefs a centerpiece of her campaign and therefore fair game.
She is nuttier than a fruitcake and dangerous. Read the article about her in the New Yorker or listen to the interview by Terry Gross on Fresh Air.

The relatives are an issue, Bob, because they were put front and center in the book Bill Ayers ghost wrote for him, "Dreams From My Father." They have been in the country illegally for many years. The aunt even obtained welfare benefits. She filed a completely bogus asylum claim that an immigration judge rightfully rejected many years ago. Because of the fame of their famous relative, suddenly the relative gets a complete reversal of her earlier asylum claim, even though the Obama clan in Kenya is treated like royalty by the government there because of their famous American relative. As an immigration lawyer, it really irritates me when I see special treatment being affored to his family relatives that are not being afforded to other persons legimitately seeking immigration benefits.

Anyone who professes to be a Christian is deemed weird these days by the mainstream media. Suddenly, it has become something bad to be a Christian in this country according to these so-called "intellectuals" who control the mainstream media. I don't even support Bachmann for president, but it doesn't take much thought to figure out that she is being unfairly vilified by the media. Bob, you know far more about Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, etc. than you even begin to know about Obama. "Dreams From My Father" has been proven to be full of fiction. Any time anyone seeks any information about his biographical narrative they are accused of being racists. Never before in the history of this country has there been such a great effort to keep key details of a president's life under lock and key. Why?

I'm not so sure it's "The Left" that's blindly supporting Obama. It seems to me like mainstream Democrats and centrist independents support Obama. "The Left" is just as disappointed in his continuation of the Bush wars, Bush tax cuts, and lukewarm push for liberal social issues. "The Left" is also disappointed by Obama's willingness to dismantle the social safety net. It's nice to think that Obama is a lefty socialist, but the left doesn't seem to be all that excited about him, as far as I can tell.

Ummm... No.

Denying science though will get a candidate for the office of President some bad press. But the religious influences that Bachmann claims are way out there.

Look into the groups that were behind Rick Perry's Prayer Festival.
