Bachmann attacks Obama for non-existent excesses

bachmann-teabag480More details are emerging about what Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) said during her CPAC 2013 speech (Conservative Political Action Convention). The one I found today is that she attacked President Obama over the excessive lifestyle he leads as President. The problem is Bachmann often lies and when she isn’t lying, she’s getting key facts wrong.
Remember how she claimed that Obama was spending $200M per day on a trip to India? Or how she knew about super-secret plans to divide up Iraq? Or how the Obama Administration wanted to switch the US to a one-world currency? Or how if Obama didn’t do anything and everything Israel wants us to do, the US is cursed? Or how Obama has secret plans to end Medicare? Or how she claimed NATO killed 30,000 civilians in Libya?
Do I need to go on?

BACHMANN: And this is a lifestyle that is one of excess. Now we find out that there are five chefs on Air Force One. There are two projectionists who operate the White House movie theater. They regularly sleep in the White House in order to be readily available in case the first family wants a really really late show. And I don’t mean to be petty here, but can’t they just push the play button? We are also the ones who are paying to walk the president’s dog. Paying for someone to walk the president’s dog. Now why are we doing that when we can’t even get a disabled veteran into the White House for a White House tour?

I wonder if anyone will fact check her statement.
Also, was Bachmann complaining when George W. Bush was on vacation for a more than three years (1020 days) of the eight years he was in office? Now that’s excessive.
