This woman is an Idiot!
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) wants Iraq to pay America back for the war effort that overthrew Saddam Hussein but also dragged on for nine years.
“I believe that Iraq should reimburse the United States fully for the amount of money we’ve spent to liberate these people,” the presidential candidate said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“They’re not a poor country, they’re a wealthy country,” Bachmann said.
Bachmann lambasted the looming withdrawal of American troops as more “politically based than military based.”
“If you look at every time we have deposed a dictator, the United States has always left troops behind to enforce the fragile peace,” she said.
And in a jab at President Barack Obama’s chief political strategist David Axelrod, Bachmann quipped: “It’s more like a General Axelrod is making this decision.”
