Michelle Bachmann’s Hurricane Comments
Michelle Bachmann – “a joke”?
Michelle Bachmann, a Republican presidential hopeful, went on record yesterday as saying that “Hurricane Irene was God’s way of telling politicians to cut spending and fix the budget deficit”. Now in fairness she has come out and said, this was a joke, to address the damage caused by the comment, however, that joke was at the expense of billions of dollars of damage and more importantly 24 deaths.
The response on Twitter was priceless, with the primary message being that Michelle misinterpreted the message and what God was really saying was he was warning the American people not to vote for her. As a casual observer, I would have to agree that seems like a more likely heavenly message.
