This is why she's a flake. Bachmann is charlatan who's made a career of saying anything that would promote her political ambitions:
SCHIEFFER: I want to ask you about something else. A lot of your critics say you have been very fast and loose with the truth.You know, the PolitiFact, which is a website that won a Pulitzer, did an analysis of 23 statements that you made recently. Of these 23, only one they said was completely true. Seven they call "pants on fire" kind of falsehoods. Four were "barely true" and two were "half- true."
