VIDEO: Michele Bachmann was for government shutdown before she was against it


Think Progress has details, but here is the gist:

On NBC’s “Meet the Press” this morning, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) — chair of the House Tea Party Caucus and potential 2012 presidential candidate — said that she opposes a government shutdown. [...]

This stance is consistent with Bachmann’s earlier public record on a government shutdown, which she has warned would be undesirable.  [...] However, one obvious fact — that Gregory failed to mention — undercuts Bachmann’s anti-shutdown message. Only days ago, she opposed continued funding of the government because the funding bill did not completely remove federal funding for Planned Parenthood.... If the House resolution that Bachmann opposed did fail, it’s virtually certain the government would have shut down.

Darn those facts, voting records, and documentation of previous statements always getting in the way. What's a hypocridiot to do?

Oh, and David? Do your homework.
