Appearing on the “Laura Ingraham Show, ” Bachmann addressed all the liberal hyperventilating that occurred after her gaffe about Lexington and Concord being in New Hampshire rather than Massachusetts:
RAYMOND ARROYO, GUEST HOST: Are you surprised by the ferocity of the criticism over this?
REPRESENTATIVE MICHELE BACHMANN (R-MINNESOTA): No, no not at all, because we all know there’s a double standard in the media. And of course when President Obama said that there had been a tornado in Kansas, and 10,000 people had been killed, that wasn’t considered newsworthy when he was campaigning for president. And then he said that he was in 57 states and he was on his way to the 58th, and of course that wasn’t considered newsworthy, because as we all know, the 3,400 members of the mainstream media are part of the Obama press contingent. And this is just what we get. So it doesn’t matter which conservative is out there, if, if, if a error is made, in any way, that’s what is stated. They didn’t talk about the great crowds, the standing ovations, the wonderful time that we had in New Hampshire, and that is just the way it goes. I think that that is what we as conservatives understand.
