Bachmann: I’ll Help Obama Find a Job After I Win


obama-oy-veyRepublican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is getting more creative, and apparently more aggressive, in her political attacks against President Barack Obama.

Yesterday, the Minnesota congresswoman took fresh jabs at the president. In one instance, Bachmann said she hoped to oust him from his current employment, become president herself – and then help Obama find a job. Bachmann also blasted “Obamacare,” saying it would cost American jobs and questioning if Obama “was in his right mind” for championing it.

The comments came as Bachmann headlined an enthusiastic yet sparsely populated Tea Party rally at the state capitol in Des Moines, Iowa. Earlier Saturday, in Iowa City, the candidate launched a bus tour through the first-in-the-nation caucus state.
As she served up red meat to the assembled conservatives, Bachmann took aim at Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner – and the president – over the economy.

“I want you to know, as president of the United States, I look forward to creating real jobs for both the Treasury secretary and the president of the United States,” Bachmann said.

Later, she continued a common Republican refrain – that the nation’s health care law should be repealed. But Bachmann put a spin on that argument, citing figures that claim the law would bleed jobs on top of those already lost in the troubled economy.
Saying the president “has cost this economy millions of jobs,” Bachmann questioned “who, with all due respect, in their right mind would propose a massive government takeover [of health care]” that would cost thousands of jobs.

It’s unclear if such talk is part of an amped-up strategy by Bachmann or simply new variations on well-worn attack lines. Whatever the case, it is not without risk. Polls generally show that while conservative voters like the tough talk, such language could turn off critical blocs of independent voters.

Yesterday’s ¬†swipes follow others recently launched by Bachmann.

Last week, she told a crowd in South Carolina, “And we think that there is a certain Hawaiian president who should go back to Hawaii!”

And at a recent conference of Internet-savvy conservatives in Minneapolis, Bachmann used an unusual line of attack.

“The president promised the African-American community, he promised the Hispanic community that he would make their lives better. And that is what we want for every American,” Bachmann said. “This president isn’t working. He’s failing the Hispanic community. He is failing the African-American community. He’s failing all of us.”



  1. To Honorable Michelle Bachmann,

    President Obama has about 18 more months of guaranteed comfortable income. In case he loses the re-elections which I hope he will, he has a guaranteed comfortable government pension for life, health insurance, and many other benefits, besides the fact that he is a wealthy man. None of the above applies to me. Therefore, please focus your efforts in finding me a job NOW.

    Truly yours,

  2. Sadly, Obama will end up doing what Carter yemach shmo is doing – acting as a fifth wheel and promoting leftist causes abroad. Expect a sheaf of books of Carter type from him too.

  3. Maybe Mr. Obama can find Michelle Bachmann a psychistrist when she loses the election. Or maybe if she wins Mr. Obama can build her a shrine to her paganism in the white house gym before he leaves.

  4. Carter is most certainly not a yemach shemo and if you want to use that term on a legally written and true american leader whose ideas we do not completely agree with, you are a Rasha and should be removed from our congregation of American Citizens. Good luck you wicked nasty little discheveled pompous louse of an American who I can not even imagine I would care to have a beer with ever.
