Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn, told President Obama directly this week that he needed to bomb Iran, and that if he didn’t, Iran would gain a nuclear weapons and it would be his fault.
Bachmann, who spoke with Obama at the White House Christmas party, did not seek reelection and is retiring from Congress this year.
According to the Washington Free Beacon:
Despite the objections of her family members, who didn’t want to be embarrassed, Bachmann said she wanted to give some “substantive comments” to the president. She waited until pictures were taken and her family walked off the stage.
“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.
Well, she did what she had to do. But he will never do what he has to do.
