Michele Bachmann is blasting Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential election chances, claiming that the former Secretary Of State is not “commander in chief material.”
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Bachmann also claims the LGBT community is “bullying people” into submission. This also is not exactly the first time that Clinton has been the target of Bachmann’s wrath; she also said this during the 2014 CPAC:
“She’s going to have to answer a very tough question: Did she pick up the phone and call the secretary of defense and the president of the United States and demand that they send a military rescue operation into Benghazi to rescue Americans that were under fire?”
It’s perhaps unavoidable that her role in the Benghazi scandal as Secretary of State will probably be a major topic of discussion during the 2016 campaign. Hillary Clinton’s approval rating took a hit over the scandal, and 48 percent of voters blamed her for the deaths in Benghazi, which the Senate confirmed were preventable. Even fellow Democrats are likely to bring up the subject during the Democratic primaries.
Even though only the 2014 mid-term elections are on the horizon the subject is coming up already. Even Mitt Romney, who swears he is not running again in 2016, has been saying similar things. But now Bachmann is picking apart other parts of Clinton’s record:
“We have a president and a former secretary of state who think that releasing five of the Taliban’s top operational leaders poses virtually no national security risk to the people of the United States of America. I beg to differ with that assessment…. [Clinton] reinforces daily to the American people that she is not commander in chief material… fails to inspire confidence and practically anything that she has touched in her record as secretary of state – including her utter abject failure in Benghazi – should disqualify her from ever being considered for the presidency.”
Of course, perhaps Republicans are firing all guns way, way too early since the idea of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 run was shot down by the potential Democratic candidate shortly after ending her career as U.S. Secretary of State:
“I’m not even posing those questions. I am really looking forward to stepping off the fast track that I’ve been on. I’ve been out of politics as Secretary of State. I don’t see myself getting back into politics.”
Do you agree with Michelle Bachmann that Hillary Clinton is not fit to be POTUS?
