Michele Bachmann: Obama Should Block Ahmadinejad From Speaking At UN

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann on Tuesday called on President Obama to block Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from speaking at the United Nations - a violation of long-standing international treaty obligations.


The 18-acre site on the east side of Manhattan that is occupied by the United Nations headquarters is international territory. Because of that, the United States is obligated to allow access for leaders of the body`s 193 member nations."


At this juncture the Republican presidential nomination process is a two-man race between former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney and Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Desperate to get back into the conversation Bachmann has recently made reckless statements that serve only to solidify her reputation as a goofball. During the most recent debate, Bachmann called the vaccine to prevent cervical cancer "dangerous." Bachmann isn`t a physician, and she should stop playing one on TV. Real doctors blasted Bachmann for spreading lies, they emphasized that the vaccine is safe and has saved the lives of many young girls.

Now Bachmann is trying to curry favor with supporters of Israel by urging President Obama to block Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from speaking at the United Nations. Not only would that be a violation of international treaty obligations, but if Obama followed her advice he would be acting as reckless as the dictator from Iran.

The United Nations is the perfect forum for President Ahmadinejad to speak, unfortunately most of the UN members would applaud his anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Bachmann is out of her league running for president, and she`s not helping her cause by making inflammatory statements. I know you can`t pray the gay away, but for her sake I hope you can pray the stupid away.
