Bachmann: Obama making "the final leap to socialism"

itemprop

Once she starts, she just can't stop. Our most favorite congresswoman, Rep. Michele Bachmann, kept spewing conservative talking points yesterday on Bill Bennett's radio show. She even said Obama was working to enact the policies of Ward Churchill.

Keep it coming, Bachmann. We eat this stuff up.

The audio of the interview:

An excerpt from DailyKos:

BACHMANN: If you want to look at economic history over the last 100 years. I call it punctuated equilibrium. If you look at FDR, LBJ, and Barack Obama, this is really the final leap to socialism. ... But we all know that we could turn this around and we can turn this around fairly quickly. We're still a free country.

And as the Democrats are about to institutionalize cartels -- that's what they're very good at -- they're trying to consolidate power, so we need to do everything we can to thwart them at every turn to make sure that they aren't able to, for all time, secure a power base that for all time can never be defeated.

"But what I think we're seeing is an implementation of all of the radical ideas that Bill Ayers and Ward Churchill -- the radical ideas that we've seen on some college campuses, they are now being implemented in our government, and they're taking a nefarious route when it looks at the economic recovery."

In case you need a reminder, Churchill is the college professor who wrote the essay concluding that the victims of 9/11 had it coming.
