Star Tribune does not cover Bachmann’s Obama excesses lie

Michele Bachmann flees Dana BashThe Minneapolis Star Tribune has a long history of ignoring the shenanigans of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN). Only recently have they published any critical and non-puff articles about what Bachmann actually says and does. That brief policy appears to be over now that Bachmann’s post-election silence is over.
 
Last weekend Bachmann appeared at CPAC 2013 and spewed her usual venomous bull****. One of the pieces of red meat she tossed to her adoring fans is that President Obama lives an extravagant lifestyle. The Washington Post debunked her claim and now so has CNN.
 
Watch CNN reporter Dana Bash chase Bachmann. Notice how Bachmann rather rudely evades answering her questions about her Obama excesses lie.
 

 
In the longer, original version, Anderson Cooper notes that Bachmann’s specific claim that Obama has five chefs on Air Force One is completely bogus. It was the same way for past Presidents as the President’s entourage is usually fifty people during flights and these five cooks prepare fresh meals.
 
Also, Cooper notes that Obama does not have a personal dog walker. Apparently, the White House head gardener loves dogs and has taken Presidential Hounds out to poop for many, many years.
 
But readers of the Strib won’t know this because they don’t consider Bachmann’s lies, gaffes, conspiracy theories, insane behavior and utter disregard for the truth newsworthy.

Has Bachmann abandoned the Tea Party Caucus?
(http://www.slate.com/blogs/weigel/2013/03/20/the_tea_party_caucus_is_dead_and_that_s_okay.html)
This piece was cited on the news tonight. It refers to the lack of updates to the Congressional Tea Party webpage. (http://teapartycaucus-bachmann.house.gov/) The most current item shown is the Twitter feed, which hasn’t been updated since September 2012.
In looking through Bachmann’s campaign and legislative websites, I can find no current mention of her involvement with the Tea Party Caucus or of her leadership of the Tea Party Caucus. The only items with a Tea Party connection are from the summer of 2012 and earlier.

She doesn’t have a fully staffed communications team right now. So something’s got to give. Good catch.

What’s the lie? The part where she is proven to be correct about the cost of the presidency, or the part where she is correct about everything else? Where does she lie about the cost of past presidencies?

Thanks for bringing the moron perspective to this discussion. Your bull**** is always welcome here.
