You let yourself be bought by the Koch bros. and become their mouthpiece and hand puppet and then you thank your god that they've chosen to be on your side. Yeah, this presentation of reality is not overly convincing, is it? So then you claim that all the other billionaires seem to be on the radical left. Again, not too convincing, so you top it off with the claim that Democrats were "an intimidation movement" against billionaires donating money to the GOP and should be prosecuted for that.
But weren't all these other billionaires on the radical left already, Michele?

Hearing Ms Bachmann getting lost in her own reasoning, as she habitually does, makes me glad this time because she has left me with the impression that the tide is turning and the 1% is less happy with GOP than it used to be. Now if only the Democrats can withstand the temptation...

Bachmann is incapable of "reasoning!" And, it is not a good sign, for those in her state, that she was re-elected, to begin indication of her pact with the Koch holes!

The Kochs are on nobody's side but their own, but they buy Republican politicians for a bargain price.

Mental health counseling should be sought immediately. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

might be a sort of blindingly obvious thing to say but Mrs Bachmann has only been consistent in that every thing she has said tend to be wrong. Now is a good time to remind everyone that Michele Bachmann is the focus of no less than four federal and state investigations surrounding her 2012 presidential campaign. Bachmann is the central player in an FBI investigation into allegations of money laundering and wire fraud. The Department of Justice is investigating her presidential campaign for illegal coordination with a super PAC. Her campaign bribed an elected official in Iowa, and she is the focus of a House Ethics Committee investigation. When corrupt charlatans like Michele Bachmann who are wrap themselves in the flag and Constitution while using their elected position to take millions from the taxpayers, sing the praises of parasitic tax dodgers like the Koch brothers it is likely she will be saying Orange is the new Black in a few months.

Mama Michelle needs to get herself some of that Koch money, too. What better way than to publicly pay homage to them in the media.

Keep on griftin', Michelle. You do it so well.

I'd rather have Lex Luthor and Lord Voldemort on my side than the Koch kooks! Those money-grubbing creeps are a thousand times farther beneath cockroaches than roaches are beneath human beings.

When she says "Our Side" she isn't including the brainwashed sheeple, listening to her." She's not being inclusive of them at all. She telling them "Our Side" as in the Elites of which she includes herself as a Koch-endorsed handmaiden, DUH!

I wonder if she feels that way because she has received campaign funding from the Koch brothers?

What's religion got to do with it? The Koch bros need the repubs. Without the repubs they would be in a world of hurt. If I were the bros, I would run like hell in the opposite direction of MB.

Two women in a row, that shame females as brainless. I am happy Michelle's term is almost over after these remarks and others she has made! Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) recently suggested that God had sent billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch to help the Republican Party.

“I just thank God that there’s a billionaire or two on our side." Using God as the savior to the Repugs, shows me she is not living in reality! The Koch Bros. want to run and probably own the country.
What a couple of sickos Bachmann and Coulter are!!! Thanks Carrie.

If you don't like the fact that the Koch Brothers are buying our politicians and influencing our elections fight back. Hit them wear it hurts. In the wallet. If they earn less profits they will have less money to spend influencing elections. Boycott their companies products. They own Georgia Pacific so don't buy their printer paper. Reuse to purchase Brawny, Quilted Northern, Sparkle and Mardi Gras paper towels, Angel soft and Quilted Northern toilet paper, Mardi Gras napkins, and Dixie plates, bowls napkins and cups. They also own Invista which produces Stainmaster carpet, and nylon, spandex, Lycra and polyester fibers. Better yet download the free boycott app to use your phones to determine which products enrich the Koch Brothersand their Kochtopus.,
