Months after she dropped out of the Republican race for the White House, Tea Party favorite Michele Bachmann has become a Swiss citizen.
Bachmann’s spokeswoman Becky Rogness says the congresswoman was eligible for dual citizenship since she married her husband of Swiss descent in 1978.
Rogness tells Minnesota Public Radio some of the couple’s children wanted to exercise their eligibility for dual citizenship, so they went through the process as a family.
All very nice, of course, except what would Bachmann had said if the Obamas had sought dual citizenship with Kenya or a European socialist nation?
Here’s a hint from 2008 when Bachmann said she wished the “American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out if they are pro-America or anti-America.”
Watch the video:
And Bachmann has been one of the most fanatical opponents of President Obama’s health care law. So what does this say about her anti-socialist creditentials? After all, Swiss citizens are required by their government to buy insurance, which is subsidized by the government, which, as Bachmann has pointed out before, is SOCIALISM!
Bachmann is seeking re-election from Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District following her failed run for the Republican presidential nomination.
