Michele Bachmann has the 2016 presidential election all figured out. The former presidential hopeful believes Barrack Obama was elected president was “because of guilt” – white guilt to be exact – and that’s something Hillary Clinton just can’t compete with.
Speaking to conservative columnist Cal Thomas, Bachmann says that the “guilt” that Americans felt before electing Obama won’t benefit a female candidate for president.
“I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt,” Bachmann said.
“People don’t hold guilt for a woman,” she added.
Apparently the white guilt was strong enough to elect Obama in 2008 and in 2012. Americans felt very guilty.
Unfortunately former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won’t have that advantage in 2016. Not that it would matter anyway, because Bachmann, who is retiring from Congress after her current term, insists America “isn’t ready for a woman president” – a fact that she realized after running for president in 2012.
While voters will vote for women for every other elected office in the country, Bachmann doesn’t “think there is a pent-up desire” to see a woman in the Oval Office – especially one who is “the godmother of Obamacare” and “has a real problem when it comes to Benghazi”.
Plus, after having spent two decades in the public eye, Bachmann feels Clinton just won’t have the appeal that Obama first did. When Obama came along, she said, he was “new and different” (read: not white), Clinton… not so much.
As crazy as Michele Bachmann sounds, she is right about one thing – some women just aren’t fit to be president. Bachmann being the prime example…
