Michele Bachmann Agrees With Supporter Who Wants To Impeach Obama (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) was on the campaign trail in Iowa Tuesday when she agreed with a supporter who suggested that President Barack Obama be impeached in order to "get him out of the way."

"Well, I'll tell you, I'll tell you, I agree, I agree. Some people are really upset," Bachmann replied to the man before moving on to meet another supporter.

Bachmann has a penchant for making eyebrow-raising statements. And she herself has subtly glossed over the issue of presidential impeachment on more than one occasion.

The Republican congresswoman and GOP presidential candidate made news earlier this week for a similar encounter during a radio interview in which she seemed to casually accept a controversial comment from a caller.

"I would vote for Charles Manson before this guy," the caller said, comparing the notorious criminal to Obama. "But I’m pulling for you big time, all the way, go Michele!"

"Thank you for saying that," Bachmann replied.

Bachmann's campaign has had a difficult week, following up on an even tougher month. On Tuesday, The Huffington Post's Jon Ward reported that longtime Republican pollster Ed Goeas and other aides were leaving her presidential campaign, a sign that her funds were beginning to dwindle.

The latest moves are consistent with a trend that has seen Bachmann slipping in the polls ever since a high-profile win at the Iowa straw poll in mid-August.
