There are different ways to define intelligence, but it can be said to include having the ability for abstract thought, understanding, reasoning, learning, planning, and problem solving. Americans hope their representatives in government have a measure of intelligence that gives them insight into the workings of government, and one expects that those serving in the House of Representatives would have better than average cognitive abilities, but unfortunately, Michele Bachmann dispels the myth that intelligence is a pre-requisite to serve on the Intelligence Committee. After former CIA head David Petraeus testified about the events surrounding the Benghazi terror attack that claimed the lives of four Americans, Bachmann was still making demands and accusations that belie the fact the woman has a shred of intelligence or the ability to use simple logic.
On Friday after Petraeus answered questions and gave his account of the events leading up to, and after, the Benghazi attack, Bachmann demanded more answers from President Obama, and accused him of adopting a “false narrative.” It is no secret Bachmann has a problem with the President, but as usual, her remarks and demands reveal that her problem is vindictiveness and lack of intelligence. In a statement issued by her office after Petraeus’s testimony, Bachmann insisted on “further investigation” and demanded more information on the President’s knowledge of the attack comparing the Benghazi incident to the killing of Osama bin Laden. Now, Bachmann is not the brightest mind in the House, but in comparing the Benghazi incident with bin Laden’s death, she exposed herself as not only stupid, but vindictive and obsessive in seeking a scandal.
Bachmann said, “it is incomprehensible that we have yet to hear what the President knew, when he knew it, and the specific orders he gave his team,” and it sounded curiously like the questions failed presidential candidate Willard Romney demanded of the President during and after the Benghazi attack.
