Appearing on Chris Matthews' show "Hardball," Minnesota Representative Michelle Bachmann stated that Barack Obama has a leftist, liberal, and anti-American agenda. She called for the media to launch a thorough investigation of Congress to identify those who are anti-American - namely, anyone whose views are different than hers. Matthews succeeded in manipulating Bachmann into saying that those members of Congress, including Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, who are liberals are anti-American. Apparently Bachmann missed the signifiance of the title of Matthews' show, and was un-prepared for him to play hardball.
A private individual has launched a campaign to call for Congress to censure Rep. Bachmann because of her remarks. Visit http://www.censurebachmann.com to see the video of Bachmann's appearance on "Hardball" and to sign the petition to call for Congress to censure her.
