Michele Bachmann would add Ronald Regan, James Garfield and Calvin Coolidge to the iconic Mount Rushmore Monument carved into the Black Hills of South Dakota. Bachmann made the comments during a new ABC News/Yahoo interview…
“Ronald Reagan would be a good choice, but I think that Garfield was the last member who was from the House of Representatives who became president of the United States,”
James Garfield served less than a full year before being assassinated in 1881, making it the second-shortest presidential term in American history. William Henry Harrison served only 32 days.
Bachmann chose Coolidge for pure Tea Party reasons:
“Calvin Coolidge was able to get the United States budget way on track and he really was a taking care of business kind of guy.”
She said a bunch of other stuff about her campaign and her warped vision for the nation, but at this point, frankly we could give a crap what she thinks about serious issue.
