Michele Bachmann Tries To Run Away From CNN's Dana Bash (VIDEO)
Michele Bachmann tested CNN correspondent Dana Bash's speed on Tuesday when she tried to duck questions about some false claims she made during her recent speech to the CPAC conference.
"She literally raced away from our Dana Bash," Anderson Cooper told viewers on his show.
Bachmann made comments about the supposedly lavish lifestyle Obama leads inside the White House during her speech at CPAC, slamming the professional dog walker and multiple chefs she said were being paid with taxpayer money.
Bachmann's claim that 70 percent of food stamps go to 'bureaucrats'
Some readers might question why we are checking a statement by Bachmann for a second day in a row. We concede that it might seem a bit much, but her assertions often reflect comments that have bounced around, unchecked, in the blogosphere.
So we were especially curious about the "truth" that 70 percent of the Food Stamp program went to "bureaucrats." It took us a while to track down the original source of this claim, but it turns out that he believes he has been frequently misquoted. So, with all due respect to Rep. Bachmann, it seems worthwhile to set the record straight.
Remember that child's game of telephone, in which the whispered information gets increasingly distorted? That's what happened here.
