Michele Bachmann dropped by “Jay Sekulow Live” today to talk about her win last weekend in the Iowa Straw Poll and her presidential campaign in general. During the discussion, Bachmann asserted that while the American people are very concerned about the state of the economy, they are concerned about other issues as well like abortion, defending marriage … and the rise of the Soviet Union:
I would say it’s a unified message. It really is about jobs and the economy. That doesn’t mean people haven’t [sic] forgotten about protecting life and marriage and the sanctity of the family. People are very concerned about that as well. But what people recognize is that there’s a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline. They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union and our loss militarily going forward. And especially with this very bad debt ceiling bill, what we have done is given a favor to President Obama and the first thing he’ll whack is five hundred billion out of the military defense at a time when we’re fighting three wars. People recognize that.
Umm … who exactly are these people that are concerned about the rise of the Soviet Union? Because last time I checked, it went out of existence two decades ago.
