Bachmann: Obama Dismissive When Pressed on Iran Nukes

On Friday’s “America’s Newsroom” on the Fox News Channel, outgoing Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) detailed an exchange she had with President Barack Obama she had at the White House Christmas party.

According to Bachmann, despite her efforts, Obama was dismissive.

“He was actually fairly condescending. He smiled and laughed and was fairly patronizing and said, ‘Well, you know, it just isn’t that easy, Michele, but that’s OK.’ Like I’m a little woman who doesn’t know what I’m talking about. So I told him, ‘No, Mr. President, this is quite serious, this will be on your watch and you can’t go backwards. This is the ultimate in high-stakes bingo. We can’t get it wrong. And if there’s anything Iran has proved, it’s that they have blown through every requirement and they have moved fully ahead to put together their nuclear program. This is a very serious issue. They have stated unequivocally they will bomb the United States. They will bomb Israel. They will use this weapon if they have it. And I believe under no circumstances should Iran ever have access to a nuclear weapon. But they’re on their way. They’re well on their way.
