Michele Bachmann’s Latest: Linking Barack Obama To Ward Churchill

|
March 5, 2009 10:50 a.m.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is at it again. In an appearance today on Bill Bennett’s radio show, she gave the now-standard Republican line that the GOP has to do everything they can to stop President Obama’s agenda — and managed to slip in a line that Obama is enacting the policies of Ward Churchill:

Said Bachmann: “But what I think we’re seeing is an implementation of all of the radical ideas that Bill Ayers and Ward Churchill — the radical ideas that we’ve seen on some college campuses, they’re now being implemented in our government, and they’re taking a nefarious route when it looks at the economic recovery.”

Ward Churchill, you might recall, is the radical former college professor who wrote an essay saying the victims of 9/11 had it coming. And Michele Bachmann, a member of Congress, thinks the President of the United States subscribes to Churchill’s ideas and is working to enact them into law.
