Running scared: Rep. Michele Bachmann
flees from questions about dubious
White House spending claims

New York Daily News, by Kristen A. Lee

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 3/21/2013 12:39:59 AM

Rep. Michele Bachmann literally fled from a reporter’s questions about her claim of “excess” spending by the White House after many of her allegations of new presidential “perks” were debunked. CNN’s Dana Bash, who apparently caught the congresswoman between meetings, was forced to chase her down a hallway when she tried to ask her about the dubious claims she made earlier this month. Bachmann made the allegations at the conservative gathering known as CPAC. The Minnesota Republican devoted some of her speech to slamming Obama over the deadly attack on a U.S. outpost in Benghazi last

Comments:
When is the last time that a "reporter" ever went after a dRATS in this fashion? It is obvious that it was Dana´s turn, from CNN, to hound and try to ridicule one of our favorite female GOP speakers. It´s just a prelude of things to follow as the LSM, in its throes of possible extinction, wants to take US over their invented fiscal cliff with the other lemmings. One can always play the numbers game, but THEY seem to forget the rapidly increasing 0bama trillion-dollars deficits.

Too bad the press situate wasn´t as interested in the Benghazi murders which was the real story.

Yes, the reporter had no interest in the four dead Americans, and she had no interest in 0bama and Michelle spending billions of dollars on expensive, lavish and luxurious vacations all at the taxpayers´ expense. No she just wanted to embarrass Bachmann, and it was the reporter who looked foolish and so very biased and ill informed.

Not my most erudite post, but I´m betting Kristen is an "unfortunate" looking woman.
Most of the "gals" who attack Michele and Sarah are double baggers.
As a chick, I can say this, right?

Mrs. Bachman is a righteous, Christian woman doing the Lord´s work telling the truth and exposing the wrongs of the evil doers in Washington.
Dana Bash, divorcee and pro-abortionist, had no business harassing and threatening Sister Bachman. The absolute misogynist, indecent, disrepectful and Godless treatment of this Congresswoman is treasonous!

Taking a wild guess that Kristen A. Lee has never once questioned a single claim made by Dear Leader, not one of which could ever be called dubious.

Obama has been very selective on sequester cuts despite his claim he hs no control over them.Pointing out the hypocrisy that the cuts aren´t affecting Obama personal lifestyle extravagance isn´t going to be allowed to stand by CNN.

They weren´t about to give up the photo op easter egg roll so they magically found money for that but everyday visits to the WH is still severely underfunded.

I will not defend the reporter or this article, but Michele Bachmann needs to learn that she is not a Democrat. She needs to more carefully choose what she says and what she claims. The press is going to attack her for every inaccuracy. She needs to be more careful that there are not any. Unlike a Democrat she does not have any margin for hyperbole in her statements. The best part is that if she does her homework, there isn´t any need for hyperbole sticking with the facts is outrageous enough.

The truth is that the American taxpayer does pay out 1.4 billion dollars a year to keep the Grifter family in the style to which they have been accustomed. So Dana has no "story".

They do hide the facts, like the all day Saint Patrick´s party that was just held without one peep reported by the cowardly press.

By the way, isn´t Dana Bash married to a W.H. staffer?

I agree with #15. Bachmann should have had her proof ready to speak about, she didn´t. I lost confidence in Bachmann when she slammed Rick Perry in the last primary election. Perry is governor of one of the best run states in the USA.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was killed earlier this month by a deadly mixture of heroin, cocaine, and several other drugs -- this according to the NYC medical examiner. The medical examiner just released the official cause of death -- listing "acute mixed drug intoxication" as the reason PSH passed away suddenly on February 2nd. According to the medical examiner, the drugs in the actor´s system at the time of his death were heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety) and amphetamines (uppers like Adderall). Mixing heroin and cocaine is often termed "speedballing." It´s the same mixture that killed Chris Farley, River Phoenix,

The Clinton Presidential Library released a batch of roughly 4,000 pages of previously-secret White House documents Friday, fueling questions about how history could affect the presidential ambitions of former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Several topics covered in Friday’s release relate to Mrs. Clinton, including records from the Health Care Task Force she headed and from her press office in the White House. The papers include internal musings by White House aides, including a warning that there was “great disquiet” on Capitol Hill about whether the Clintons understood the legislative process needed to enact the health

Tokyo - Mt. Gox, the troubled exchange for the virtual currency Bitcoin, filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday and said that it might have lost 750,000 of its customers’ coins, essentially all of them, in a hacking attack. The Tokyo-based exchange, which warned this month of a software flaw that may have allowed hackers to defraud it of Bitcoins, had halted all trading this week. Mark Karpeles, the company’s chief executive, wearing a suit instead of his usual T-shirt, bowed in contrition and apologized in Japanese at a press conference in Tokyo. “There were weaknesses in the system,” he said.

Washington - The National Archives made public on Friday afternoon a trove of secret documents detailing the inner workings of Bill Clinton’s White House, a disclosure of acute interest not just to the history of one presidency but to the prospects of another. Thirteen years after Mr. Clinton left office, the release of 3,000 to 4,000 pages of internal memos and other papers may shed light on decisions he made during a tumultuous time and, just as significantly if not more so, possibly the role his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, may have played in shaping them.

Indeed, they’re the main force pushing it on the Republican side. Nevertheless, Rubio badly damaged himself with actual GOP voters by

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.

Ukraine´s security council ordered the general staff to immediately put all armed forces on highest alert, the council´s secretary Andriy Parubiy announced. The Defense Ministry was ordered to conduct the call-up, potentially of all men up to 40 in a country that still has universal male conscription.
