Michelle Bachmann, the outgoing Senator from Minnesota, took a page from John McCain’s book, catching up with President Obama at a Christmas party recently and telling him to do this:
Well, maybe not exactly like that.
Via the Free Beacon:
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.) knew the White House Christmas party this week would be her last chance as a member of Congress to speak directly to President Obama. She didn’t waste the opportunity.
“I turned to the president and I said, something to the effect of, ‘Mr. President, you need to bomb the Iranian nuclear facilities, because if you don’t, Iran will have a nuclear weapon on your watch and the course of world history will change,’” she told the Washington Free Beacon.
“And he got his condescending smile on his face and laughed at me and said, ‘Well Michele, it’s just not that easy.’ And I said to him, ‘No, Mr. President, you’re the president, it will happen on your watch, and you’ll have to answer to the world for this.’ And that was it and then I left. Merry Christmas,” she said with a laugh.
A senior strategist for Iran has recently declared that his country has a definite, God-given right to attain a nuclear bomb. He promised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Obama that Iran would not only have nuclear power but will also be “equipped with nuclear weapons.”
Is Michelle Bachmann right? Does the President need to stop Iran’s nuclear program through force?
