Michele’s corner: Rep. Michele Bachmann explains her support of new Stillwater bridge

    “Joshua, you have a bridge in St Cloud near where you live, therefore the Stillwater bridge is a terrific way to spend a billion dollars.” Watching this video was one of the most inspiring intellectual experience I’ve had in some time. A new bridge has nothing to do with alleviating Stillwater issues. Those are alleviated by closing the lift bridge to motorized traffic. A billion bucks for a new bridge needs to stand on its own justification and there is none.

    “There you go again”

    Michelle does not mention the fact that a big multi-lane bridge exists just 7 miles downstream in her little justification, does she?

    Her mantra continues……”It’s the Government’s fault”. ‘I-My-Me’ at her best again.

    No Credibility, No Accomplishments, Great combination

    Who would listen to a person with zero credibility. She generally speaks by spewing made-up information fresh from Michele Bachmann’s fantasy world. What good does it do to listen to her. You never know when she is speaking the truth. I make it easy and just assume she isn’t speaking the truth.
