Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann apparently felt the need to remind us that she has no idea what she is talking about today.
“But what people recognize is that there’s a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline. They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union and our loss militarily going forward. And especially with this very bad debt ceiling bill, what we have done is given a favor to President Obama and the first thing he’ll whack is five hundred billion out of the military defense at a time when we’re fighting three wars. People recognize that.”
The Reds are coming to get us! And I bet they have conspirators right here in the U.S. too! The Obama Administration secretly sympathizes with communist countries don'cha know?
Of course here in the real world, the Soviet Union hasn't existed since 1991.
Furthermore, we could cut the defense budget by $500 billion over 10 years and it would still be larger than every other nation on earth combined.
