Bachmann Slams Obama Foreign Policy
Representative Michele Bachmann, the Republican from Minnesota, has attacked President Obama and his White House administration for having a foreign policy she said was based on apology and appeasement. She claimed the administration and Obama played a role in allowing the recent attacks that took place in Libya and Egypt that killed four Americans.
Bachmann spoke on Friday in front of a crowd in Washington D.C. and said that the supposedly excellent foreign policy of Obama was now exposed for what it is. She said all the problems taking place in the Arab world were not just about a movie about Islam, referring to the film that had reportedly started the protests at embassies in Libya and Egypt.
This she said was intentional and done by Islamists who are radical and seek to impose a set of beliefs of their own. Bachmann said she and the rest of the U.S. would not accept what the protesters were trying to accomplish in the Middle East.
The words spoken by Bachmann have been echoed by many other Republicans who have started to speak out against the White House administrations way of handling the current crisis. This followed criticism that Mitt Romney the Republican presidential candidate received for accusing Obama of apologizing for what happened and for sympathizing with the protesters and others who took part in the attacks.
Bachmann said that Obama seemed to insist on apologizing for what Americans stand for and that the President is following a strategy of defeat. Just a few months ago, Bachmann sparked great controversy when she said the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt might have infiltrated the government of the U.S. However, she received great criticism from even her own party for the outlandish comments.
