Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said on MSNBC's "Hardball" Friday that Barack Obama may have "anti-American views" and that the news media should conduct a "penetrating exposé" to determine whether members of Congress are "pro-America or anti-America."
Politico asked Bachmann what she meant.
"Despite the way the blogs and the Democratic Party are spinning it, I never called all liberals anti-American, I never questioned Barack Obama's patriotism, and I never asked for some House Un-American Activities Committee witch hunt into my colleagues in Congress."
