Bachmann with World War II veterans.
Never one to pass up an opportunity for a good photo op, Michele Bachmann today posed with World War II veterans who had a hard time visiting the World War II memorial in D.C. because of a government shutdown she played a large role in creating.

Unsurprisingly, while at the memorial, she had the temerity to blame Obama for the shutdown, saying he wanted it for political purposes.

Bachmann aside, the World War II veterans' story is pretty cool. They had longstanding plans to travel from Mississippi to D.C. to check out the memorial, which is supposed to be closed during the government shutdown. But when they arrived there earlier today, they wouldn't take no for an answer.

From the Washington Post:
The U.S. Park Police allowed the bus to stop.

"I'm not going to enforce the no stopping or standing sign for a group of 90 World War II veterans," said the officer, who declined to give his name. "I'm a veteran myself. "

Veterans piled off the buses in wheelchairs and with canes, and a shout went up when the barricades blocking the entrance to the memorial were suddenly moved and the men surged down into the memorial.
National Park Service officials say they aren't sure what they'll do if more veterans show up wanting to spend time at the memorials, government shutdown be damned, but Bachmann already promised they won't be turned away: Come to think of it, there's nothing we'd rather see than Michele forcibly removed from the memorial by police, even if it means some World War II veterans have to head home disappointed.

She showed up after the Vets had already gained access.... It was some other republican and a democrat that helped them get in initially. She's dressed the way she is because as soon as she heard about what was going on, she rushed over there asap to try and steal some credit.

Could we get more pictures of Micky Cupcakes? America loves a hot hypocrite. Can we get her in a bikini, or video of her jumping up and down? Thanks.

I'm glad she helped the veterans see the monument, but she is the reason it was closed. I think it's akin to an arsonist returning to help the fire department to put out the very blaze they set.

They contacted her and asked if she would arrange a tour for them. Oh aren't the parasite loser class City Page Kool-aid drinking Goose Steppers Green with Marxist Envy ?

This would've a GREAT story about respect and honor between the park officer and the WWII veterans during this rough patch in U.S. history, but Bachmann's presence had to ruin it. What a cockblock

Haven't these men & women been through enough?

Also, nice fucking outfit.

@BekaBooMN it was only yesterday she was "very excited" and "this is exactly what she wanted"

Actually that circumstance would get you unemployment and a possible wrongful term lawsuit. And al as a liberal I can respect your opinion, but I'm not going to get bent out of shape like some of these people do

Free country doesn't mean freedom of consequence. If someone's boss is a woman and saw them call someone a cunt online, it would be grounds for termination. All freedom of speech guarantees you is freedom from being prosecuted for what you say.

The vets had the opportunity to say no and didn't... not like they were forced to take the picture. Another thing, Obama does have the lowest approval rating amongst military personal of any president on history, so...

No. She is. She wants government to shut down then does a photo op with vets? Then has the balls to blame it on Obama. She's a cunt.

I am no Bachmann fan but if someone called Hilary or another Liberal woman a cunt all these women would be on here demeaning the person who made the comment. But since Bachmann is a Republican and someone you don't agree with it's ok.

Chris, please be respectful. I don't like her either but this is unacceptable language.

I would wager most of the politicians at the Memorial this morning voted for the shutdown, and few of them likely appreciate the irony. Bachmann sure doesn't.

@Hardley Noel Jim Jones references? You're better than that Hardley.

Also, if someone invites Bachmann to something, do you really think she shows up in shorts and a dirty t-shirt? Christ...you can see the photo, no one is so dumb to think her being there was in the least bit planned.

She's pretty good looking in any outfit.  Unlike these fat loser Democrats you vote for.  Ugly disgruntled Democrats and your potty mouths.

@Kent Erickson   The President was elected... twice.  You just can't seem to get over it.

@Kent Erickson Wow you keep holding onto that little polling tidbit since Obama has already won two elections pretty badly.   Obama is a two term President which is the only poll that counts.  You can hold onto all your fake little niche polls.  Like honestly who gives a shit what the military thinks about politics?   That's why we elect a Commander in Chief.   They should focus on winning wars and cleaning up their very serious sexual assault problem.

@Chris Welton Nice mouth Loser.   She should want the Gubmint to shut down.  To stop supporting the losers that are beneficiaries of these Democrat programs.  Hate women much to make such a comment?

@Chris WeltonWhat a mysognist, patriarchal fuck.. I suppose you think all women should be objects to bang and make you dinner. 

Back in your cave!

@DavidFoureyes You think he knows who Jim Jones is?   Hardley thinks the Communists and Nazis are pals.   He probably hates that Wall Street Socialist Atheist Muslim in the White House too.   It sucks how Fox News has taught complete fucking dumbasses like Hardley they should give their opinion and never be ashamed of how stupid they are.

@kurt124  Good looking???  She looks like her hair caught fire and someone tried to put it out with a brick and got her face instead.  The only other place I've seen that color hair is on the head of a twenty dollar h**ker in the back seat of your 1978 Datson.

@kurt124 You get why she's wearing this uniform of the retired, right? She was sitting on her botox-laden ass in her apartment, while getting paid mind you, heard there was a photo op with some Vets she just fucked-over, and ran down to the mall to stick a knife in their sides.

Vulture in an outfit my mom wears when she's doing yardwork.

And all of you crybabies need to get over people using words you don't like. They're words. Save your preaching and wailing for church.

And speaking of botox, it could have been worse. That hideous monstrosity known as Nancy Pelosi could have shown up.

Hey fucktard:

Look at the photo again. The vets are smiling and one has his arm around her shoulder. Apparently they are happy to see her.
