Rep. Michele Bachmann, continuing her drumbeat of criticism of President Obama's policies and priorities, ripped his rationale Wednesday for intervening in Libya, arguing that it isn't justified by any compelling national interest.
The Tea Party stalwart, riding a wave of national attention since aides said she may be on the cusp of a presidential run, also said she opposes giving military assistance to the rebels fighting Libya strongman Moammar Gadhafi, saying she believes al Qaida fighters have infiltrated their ranks.
"I would not have gone in" to Libya, Bachmann said on NBC's "Today" show.
Bachmann said what she callsthe "Obama doctrine" provides a misguided rationale for the United States "to enter into one country after another."
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is releasing ads attacking Republican Reps. Jason Lewis and Erik Paulsen for their votes to repeal Obamacare, as part of their first digital ad campaign of the cycle.
