Bill Clinton and Michele Bachmann: Fundraising power couple.
Former President Bill Clinton told the World Economic Forum recently that Rep. Michele Bachmann is divorced from reality and living in a parallel universe when it comes to health care in the United States.

Right on cue, Bachmann turned Clinton's jibe into a fundraising gold mine. Send her money to defeat the evil socialist Barack Obama, she begged in an e-mail to supporters. Send it now, before it's too late!

"Michele Bachmann said in her tea party response to President Obama, 'Everybody knows we have the greatest health care system in the world.' That is factually untrue. That's not true," Clinton told the gathering in Switzerland. "I think what America needs as much as anything else is to stop conducting its politics in a parallel universe divorced from reality with no facts."

He's right. FactCheck has ripped Bachmann for the same nonsense

But Bachmann is laughing all the way to the bank. In her e-mail pitch for cash, she doesn't even bother trying to refute the former president, she just changes the subject:

This week, while speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Clinton attacked my efforts to overturn Obamacare and said I live "in a parallel universe divorced from reality with no facts."

The fact is that we have seen President Obama and his liberal allies push for socialist policies that are bankrupting our nation. Their out-of-control spending has raised our national debt to over $14 trillion. And if he gets his way, this debt will grow even higher this year.

Clinton probably saw this coming. It's happened before. He was in town last fall, stumping for Bachmann's Democratic opponent Tarryl Clark, when he called Bachmann the "ultimate example of putting ideology over evidence," and that "it's pretty stupid."

Michele Bachmann being divorced from reality is certainly not news.

What's news is that they managed to keep the marriage a secret for so long in the first place...

I just hope Reality insisted on a pre-nup!


'Everybody knows we have the greatest health care system in the world.' So says Michelle Bachman, and many other well-off conservatives in this country. It could be argued, that we do in fact have the greatest health CARE in the world. I believe that many Europeans would vehemently disagree with you on that point as well. However, it is my opinion that any person who says that we have the "greatest health care SYSTEM" (not the emphasis on the word SYSTEM, not CARE) in the world is either A. An elected, state or federal US politician riding that free, tax-payer-sponsored magic health care carpet,B. A person directly employed by one of the big insurance companies, who then also profits from our sickness, or C. The typical know-nothing douchebag who is full of 3rd party opinions and low on reality.
