    LOL. Here we go again....Michelle Backmann and her radical republican colleagues, and their preposterous, ridiculous and incomprehensible notion ever. I"m not really surprised. This kind of fear mongering is so common in Republican party...you starting laughing at it

    Michelle Bachmann is a perfect example of what is wrong with America. If you are not white, "Christian", or Republican you must be a terrorist or a Muslim. Now Sununu says if you are not a republican you are not American. Evidence, truth, or research are not needed just pointed accusations. Shame on you.

    It's funny how all the security and religious issue suddenly rises during an election year. It's a politically calculated move to ensure her vice president role. From a Canadian perspective such ridiculous claims reflects badly on the American value system. Good job Anderson on investigating and dismissing such baseless claims.

      I agree with Sam. There is always hidden agenda.

    I think we have enough terrorist within our own government without having to create them. This must be another tactic whose intent is to distract from the real problem; our own Government

    She should be removed from office for attempting to divide the country. She should face charges for treason.
