During an interview on Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” Tea Party Caucus leader Michele Bachmann (R-MN) refused to back down from previous (2009) comments characterizing the Obama administration as a “gangster government.” She may have even doubled down.
“I don’t take back my statement on gangster government,” she told host David Gregory. “I think that there have been actions that have been taken by this government that I think are corrupt, thoroughly corrupt.”
“I believe the actions of this government have been emblematic of ones that have not been based on true American values,” she added, before coming close to doubling down on her previous comments: “I think the president’s actions in the last two years speak for themselves.”
Something which highlights the “gangster” or tyrannical nature of this administration is their continued refusal to supply documents requested by various Congressional committees or Freedom of Information requests: the Fort Hood shooting, on counterterrorism, Obamacare, access to White House list, Black Panther voter intimidation case, recidivism rate of Gitmo detainees, TARP, stimulus, and the list goes on and on and on.
Mark my words there be stonewalling on the ATF “Fast and Furious” case which is currently breaking. This AFT policy allowed hundreds, if not thousands of guns purchased in the United States to be illegally sold to cartel thugs in Mexico. In May of 2010, Customs and Border Protection agent Brian Terry was murdered with guns traced back to this inane administration policy.
Representative Bachmann calls the administration “gangster,” and I agree. Obama and the entire administration believe they can do ANYTHING they want and not have to face the American people. The audacity and arrogance displayed by this admin is beyond anything previously seen.
