Michele Bachmann may have been a presidential hopeful herself, but she believes that Hillary Clinton has no chance at taking over Barack Obama’s spot in 2016 because America “isn’t ready for a women president.” In a suprising interview with TriCities.com, Bachmann said the “white guilty” which led to Obama’s two terms in office wouldn’t extend to Clinton.
“I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt. People don’t hold guilt for a woman,” she said. “I don’t think there is a pent-up desire to see a woman in the Oval Office.”
But even if Clinton does run, the Republican congresswoman said there are already plenty of strikes against her besides gender. Bachmann accused Clinton of being “the godmother of Obamacare, poor handling of the the 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and even trying to create her own health plan when her husband was in office.
Last month, Bachmann threatened to sue Obama over his State of the Union address, in which he declared that he will act unilaterally on a number of issues. “If he wants to move forward with this unilateral activity, he better be prepared for the lawsuit that the United States Congress will bring to him,” she declared. “He may think he’s king, he may declare he’s a king, but that’s not what he is under the constitution.”
