Bachmann’s ‘impeachment comment’ really wasn’t, staff says

At a coffee shop in Iowa Tuesday, Michele Bachmann seemed to agree with a man who said President Obama should be impeached. Later her staff explained that she didn’t really mean that she supports impeachment but agrees that people are frustrated with the president.

The exchange happened like this in Newton, Ia., according to CBS News:

After visiting a coffee shop in this small Iowa town, Bachmann was asked by a man in the crowd, “When will we impeach him and get him out of the way? We should be —” The candidate replied, “Well, I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you, I agree, I agree. Some people are really upset.” Then she moved on to the next well-wisher.

After the incident, campaign spokesperson Alice Stewart told CBS News: “She was not saying that she agrees that Obama should be impeached. She agreed with the man on what they were talking about before — that people are frustrated.”

    Or maybe not.
