When asked in the above interview which aired November 3rd on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360° whether she would support cuts to Social Security and Medicare, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minnesota slammed the White House for the costs of President Obama’s trip to India. Is Bachmann doing double talk? Tune in tonight - we're Keeping Them Honest.

    Michele Bachmann seems like she has nothing better to do with herself than just put her foot in her mouth about anything and everything.Michele Bachmann seem to be a pain in the tush.Michele Bachmann stated that Obama trip to India cost 2 million dollars from getting information from the media.Does the media really know how much Obama spends when have to travel.I really doubt it.Michele need to get her facts straight instead of saying false statements or statements with no proof.Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin are 2 peas in the pot when it comes to stupidity and both are politically retarded.Michele Bachmann is starting all this publicity so she can become a witch hunter.

    I am astonished Rep Bachmann's failure to unequivocally retract her comments regarding the Obama's diplomacy efforts with India. Instead, Bachmann is still basking in the glory of her tea party win.

    I agree with CNN's holding Rep. Bachmann accountable for inaccurate comments on the cost of the President's trip to India? But why have you not held President Obama accountable for his many inaccurate claims for the healthcare bill?

    Politicians like to talk. My first reaction to the news article is just that.

    What I do not understand is where are we with understanding all of us who are having a real hard time, not rich and trying to hold on. Why do we keep putting people in power who do not care about the middle class and the poor. Are we so blind that we can not see? Do we care to look beyond the good ole US Of A and realize that we are behind in terms of education, social justice and and and? Globalization and technology is here and will not go away. We need to connect and stop all the games. Realtime folks. Education for all, young and old, is the key. This is a wake up call people.
