The Huffington Post is reporting that Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential wanabee worse than anyone else Michele “Krazy” Bachmann, who in early October introduced a bill in the House of Representatives that would force women to listen to the fetal heartbeat before having an abortion, made the surprising comment in Iowa recently that abortion bans should be left up to the states.
“I think that’s referring to late-term abortion, and I think that’s something that most people find anathema, and they would prefer to see it outlawed,” she told the Iowa Republican in response to a question about abortion bans. “That’s a state issue, and so it’s up to the people of Iowa to decide what they want to do.”
It appears that along with her high heel induced migraines she may also be suffering from short term memory loss, not more than a week later, Krazy denied ever having had the conversation, despite the video of her comments that was posted online.
“I don’t think I ever said that, that a late-term abortion ban is a state issue,” Bachmann told blogger Shane Vander Hart in a phone interview on Saturday. “I don’t ever recall anything about that. I don’t recall a question about that. I’ve always been absolutely unequivocal about [abortion being a federal issue]. They should contact the campaign before they post something like that, because that is not true.”
Krazy seems to be reeling from some sort of out of body experience – perhaps she’s feeling Herman Cain’s pain after his recent gaffe about abortion not being a government issue. But Bachmann – unlike Cain – told the blogger, she’s strong, consistent and decisive on pro-life matters.
Voters “get an idea of the person, and then they pull back the layers,” she told Vander Hart. “Then they find out another candidate really isn’t pro-life. The more people find out where the candidates truly are standing, the more I’m confident that people will choose me as their nominee.”
This is the problem with Michele Bachmann, as it was for Sarah Palin and many GOTP political types; she spews out whatever she thinks the current listener wants to hear, and then moves on oblivious to the fact in today’s modern world of technology someone might have taped the conversation. Krazy’s grasping at whatever straws she can find to keep her name out there for the uber-conservative evangelical vote, she just won’t admit that she’s done – she’s the Ross Perot of this campaign, and when she can’t win the GOTP nomination she’ll be the one who’ll most likely try a third party run.
