Bachmann then repeatedly hammered Geithner and Bernanke with this question:
"What provision in the Constitution could you point to to give authority to the actions that have been taken by the Treasury?"Geithner wrinkled his brow tightly and cocked his head a little to the side as he listened. It was easy to imagine his thoughts:
"What the f*ck . . . ??"Both Geithner and Bernanke responded that the authority came from Congress, the body that authorizes U.S. government expenditures.
This mini-inquisition--and the resulting middle-school civics lesson--was a waste of time and tax-payer dollars in a situation that calls for honest inquiry, not extremist grandstanding.
Bachmann has issues. Perhaps she has a form of schizophrenia that manifests as political paranoia. Maybe she's been brainwashed by a bizarre right-wing cult. According to Wikipedia, her husband runs a Christian counseling center. Hmmmm. . . . Everything with Bachmann smells fishy.
