Watch: GOP Audience Gasps as Michelle Bachmann Tells Them She Was Once a Democrat, Worked for Jimmy Carter

Bachmann

At a speech to Michigan Republicans in Troy on Tuesday, Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) elicited gasps from the audience as she told them she was once a Democrat.

Michelle Bachmann says she was a "fair-minded Democrat" who worked on Jimmy Carter's presidential campaign (and danced at his inaugural ball before she read a "snotty" novel by Gore Vidal that she perceived as mocking the Founding Fathers.

"And as a reasonable, decent, fair-minded person who happened to be a Democrat, I thought, 'You know what? What he's writing about, this mocking of people that I revere, and the country that I love, and that I would lay my life down to defend — just like every one of you in this room would, and as many of you in this room have when you wore the uniform of this great country — I knew that that was not representative of my country."

"And at that point I put the book down and I laughed. I was riding a train. I looked out the window and I said, 'You know what? I think I must be a Republican. I don't think I'm a Democrat.'"

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP

FRC to livestream military discrimination’s last gasps

The Family Research Council, ever desperate in the face of good DADT news, is holding yet another webcast in support of military bias. Unlike last time, they won’t be using Bryan “homosexuals in the military…gave us six million dead Jews” Fischer as an “expert” speaker this go ’round. Though the Family Researchers will still use Peter “let’s export and/or criminalize gays” Sprigg — the man who pretty much single-handedly landed FRC on the latest edition of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s hate groups list:

Join Us for a Special Protect Our Military Webcast

On December 2, 2010 at 1 PM ET, Family Research Council Action will host a live national video Webcast titled, “Mission Compromised: How the Military is Being Used to Advance a Radical Agenda.”

Veteran military commanders, Members of Congress, and policy experts will join me to assess the Pentagon’s study on the impact of open homosexuality on combat effectiveness and readiness. We will discuss the report’s shortcomings and plans by Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to rush a vote during the lame-duck session of Congress without thorough hearings and testimony by battlefield commanders.

The U.S. Senate will vote very soon on the Defense Authorization Act, which, if enacted, would force open homosexuality on the military and turn military medical facilities into abortion clinics. The vote is expected to be very close which is why it’s so vital that you encourage your friends and family to tune into this live Webcast. They will learn what action steps they can take to stop this last ditch attempt by outgoing liberal senators to force a liberal social agenda onto the military.

Featured Guests include:

Host: Tony Perkins, Marine Corps veteran and President, FRC Action

Gen. Carl Mundy, former Commandant of the Marine Corps

Sgt. Brian Fleming, veteran of the war in Afghanistan and Purple Heart recipient

Douglas Lee, Chaplain (Brigadier General) USA (Ret)

Lt. Col. Bob Maginnis, USA (Ret) Senior Fellow, National Security, Family Research Council

Cathy Ruse, Senior Fellow, Legal Studies, Family Research Council

Peter Sprigg, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies, Family Research Council

In addition to briefing us on the significance of this legislation, our guests will answer viewer questions sent by you via SMS text or email.

Please register now and help us spread the word about the live Webcast on December 2nd. Together we will build a wave of opposition to once again protect the military from being used to advance a radical political agenda.

Register now to watch the live webcast on Thursday, December 2nd at 1 PM EST.

Sincerely,

Tony Perkins

President

P.S. Please forward this email to at least one friend.

Oh, we’ll definitely forward the word to our friends, FRC. The real question: Will you all still find a friend in this kind of wanton discrimination in the predicted “culture war” climate of tomorrow: Weather where unfairness will surely fare less fairly?

We document; history decides.




Good As You
