The Minnesota Republican infamously said that she was concerned that Barack Obama has anti-American views and went on to proclaim that she’d love to see an investigation of which memebers of Congress are anti-American or pro-American. 

“…the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look…take a great look at the views of the people in Congress find out are they pro-America or anti-America. I think people would love to see an expose like that.”

Last night I asked Bachmann about those comments and she denied making them.  John at Crooks and Liars has it.

Colmes: You said you were concerned during the campaign that Obama had anti American views and you said the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look at the people and find out, are they pro-America or anti-America.

Bachmann: Actually that’s not what I said. It’s an urban legend that was created and that’s not what I said.

Colmes: I have the tape at my website Alan.com.

Bachmann: What I called on Alan was for the mainstream media to do their job. They failed to vet Barack Obama the way they had John McCain. That’s what I was called for.

Colmes: ‘I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out, are they pro-America or anti-America.’ Do you really want…

Bachmann: What I said was that I’m not qualified to say whether members views are pro or anti American. That’s not my job to do.
