Michele Bachmann flunks Canadian economics

Bachmann loves Canadian economics.
Since Michele Bachmann keeps flunking American history, it really shouldn't surprise anyone that she's flunking Canadian history too.

To make matters worse, she's broadcasting her lousy grade far and wide via Twitter:

"Lesson in economic recovery: Consider Canada," she tweeted today. "No stimulus & unemployment is 20% lower than US."

Can't those millions of campaign dollars in her kitty pay for a fact checker?

Canada passed a stimulus package in 2009 at the same moment Congress was debating doing the same thing.

Not only that, but Canada's banks survived the meltdown in the financial markets because of government regulation of the sort Bachmann routinely disparages as socialism.

And Canada has managed a lower unemployment figure than the United States despite having socialized medicine. Is this really the country America's Craziest Congresswoman wants to hold up as a shining example of her economic philosophy?

Curious as to where Kirk the Bigot EARNED his degree? So quick to "throw" around insults, slang and simple babble. Also, if you are at work, perhaps you could get off the internet and earn your paycheck. No wonder jobs are leaving our shores with all those stellar employees out there like Kirk.

Kirk the Conservative Jerk should change his name to Kirk the Dumb Conservative Jerk,...or is that redundant?  Perhaps you should go to Rush/Beck space, Kirk, and talk with folks your own I.Q. level, since you look like the Supreme Idiot on this link.  Can't you understand what Bachmann did, and said?  Why do you think she pulled her comment so quickly, when she got busted?  Because even HER dumb ass knew she focked up,...that's why.  Wink, wink.

... and upon hearing the news of another blatant lie from Bachmann with no chance of a correction, the right-wing rolls its eyes and gives an "aw shucks!" to their Christian savior Michelle B.

It's amazing how much stupidity and lying Republicans and especially Tea Party Idiots will take from their candidates.    It really holds our country back having so many idiots feeling free to lie and be stupid all the time with no consequences.

OK,this is bizarre even for you-the article clearly proves her statement wrong. But you say say she is winning because her statement involves Canada? methinks the jerk needs his meds adjusted!

Damn, I try to be cordial, and yet you're a dick!  Yet I smile and say, "game on"So what gives Zero, I say dog, and you hear cat?Well, that explains a lot.Hey Zero, post a pick of yourself.  I'm sure we would all like to see what you're compensating for.

Again I translate from the "jerkese" to coherent english.  Kirk is saying that his own insults lack any originality or sting and the truth of others comments reinforce his feelings of inadaquacy. He goes on to question whether others understand his garbled posts and then makes pale weak attempt at a humourous insult.

Thanks for the lesson in word usage zero!

See while you type, I talk. (Dragon Naturally Speaking)  I'm constantly correcting it's typing, while helping the program learn.Perhaps I should get myself an editor, because I have little time while working.  I'm working right now.  I guess when you have the ability to teach you boss new tricks, leniency comes your way.

You should see the shit it types, as I talk in my ghetto ebonics.

Yes Zero, I admit Michele is just as big of a dipshit as Obama when it comes to certain issues.

And "one more example of her ignorance! You clearly showed yours in your lack of correct spelling, incorrect word usage..."

Like the word "dipshit"; CP alerts me to it's misspelling. CP's blog host spellchecker thinks its spelled wrong.

Damn the ignorance of CP using such a dumb spellchecker.  Let discredit CP because of it's ignorance of it's spellcheckers knowledge of word usage.

Alinsky gives you kudos Zero.   You pump rule #5 like a champ!

Thanks for your quick reply- I will translate it into coherent english for those new to CP-the jerk admits he is wrong as he usually is and that the people who point this out to him help him to be a better person. A obviously long process. He goes on to blame his ignorance of spelling and grammar on CP while in the process completely missing the irony and hypocracy of him trying to correct others.

Come on!  Walk with me.Zero, you say: "But you say say she is winning because her statement involves Canada?"

No!I say she is winning, because this is all her opposition has to through at her.Critising a United States Politician because of their lack of understanding on Canadian Economics"?WTF would she need to know that for?Doesn't Obama have "Foreign economic advisers"?  Why?Is he as "dumb as Michele" on foreign economics?

What's next?Would you like to criticize her for her inability to pee standing up like a man?

And people click "like" on your comment?  Oh I get it, your cheerleaders all cheer, as you poke me with a stick.  Their liking of your comment, had nothing to do with anything substantive.

you use of "Through" is wrong, you mean "Throw". So why can you not just admit she is an idiot and does not know what she is taking about? The article is clear-she used canada to make a point and ended up proving the opposite. If she is going to use canada as an example then she should be aware of the facts. And this is not all her opposition has to throw(correct usage) at her, it is just one more example of her ignorance! You clearly showed yours in your lack of correct spelling, incorrect word usage and inability to comprehend the point of the article.

I think he means "winning" in the Sheen-esque sense.
