    …Hop on my bus. You’ll see what the American people are saying….

    That sounds like some new-fangled drug slang to invite one to partake and have the same hallucinations as she.

    …“Obama should take the option of default off the table,” she said….

    And who, exactly, is saying “No” to raising the debt ceiling? Look in the mirror on your magic bus, Ms. Bachmann!!

    What does she expect to happen when almost 1/2 of the federal budget disappears?. Sure the interest could be paid, but there is also the not so small matter of defaulting on contractual and legal agreements that the federal government will not be able to fulfill. The full faith and credit of the US government is also pledged in those deals.

    I want her vision what the US would be 6 months after the enactment of “no more debt ceiling increases”.

    Now that would be a bad trip!

    Ms. Bachmann is speaking the language of the alternate universe in which she dwells. It sounds like English, but it’s not.

    For instance, her comment, “Just ask [voters]. Hop on my bus. You’ll see what the American people are saying.”

    When translated into the English those of us who live in the REAL world use means, “The only people I’ll allow on my bus, people who agree with me,…

    ALL agree with me.

    How can you disagree with me when EVERYONE on my bus (who MUST agree with me or they aren’t allowed to board) AGREES WITH ME?

    Of course in her definition “real Americans” all agree with her because looking from within her alternate universe, that group is made up only of those who agree with her, as well. Those who disagree are automatically discounted (if not rendered completely invisible to her) because they’re not “real” Americans. If they were, they’d obviously agree with her.
