Fail Quote: Bachmann thinks Obama is too rich for voters

If you thought Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) was crazy before, get a load of her latest delusion:

President Obama is extremely wealthy. He and his wife have been wealthy for a number of years, and so I think that's really the issue. President Obama is wealthy, what do, or -- what does he understand about the common man right now?

And I think what people care about is not hating someone for what their assets are -- the American people don't hate President Obama because he's a very wealthy individual. What they care about is how their lives are, would their lives be better? And I think it's very clear under the Romney-Ryan ticket the average Americans' lives [sic] will be much better, they'll have a lot more money to spend in the way that they want, and they'll also have a much more secure future for their children. That's what the American people want, and that's what we'll offer with this new Romney-Ryan ticket.

Right. U.S. voters don’t trust President Obama because his great wealth (net worth: $11.8 million) prevents him from connecting with the average American. Whereas Mitt Romney is so much better … with his net worth of $250 million. Like, literally more than 21 times better.

I propose setting up a medical research unit to ensure there’s no risk that the viruses feasting on Bachmann’s brain could infect anyone else. HazMat suits will be required.
