According to a report on Politico, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann told a crowd at an anti-abortion fundraiser that she was right when she suggested in 2008 that then-candidate Barack Obama had "anti-American views."
Back in 2008 when Bachmann was running for re-election, she said on MSNBC that she was "very concerned" that Obama "may have anti-American views."
The response back then was immediate. Money poured into her Democratic opponent's coffers and Bachmann dialed back her comments. She said in 2008 that she didn't suggest Obama had anti-American views but that his views bore investigation. She also said in a 2008 television ad about the dust-up that she may not always get her words right but that her heart was right.
At the Susan B. Anthony List fundraiser, where Gov. Tim Pawlenty said "Our values are under attack and under siege, Bachmann appears to be saying that her words were exactly right, according to the report.
