Skip to comments.For Michele Bachmann, a pattern of getting facts wrong (Mixes up Rev War history in NH)
Posted on 03/12/2011 4:59:33 PM PST by Virginia Ridgerunner
Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmanns suggestion Saturday that the Revolutionary War began in Concord, N.H., rather than Lexington and Concord, Mass., marks the third time in recent months that the potential GOP presidential hopeful has committed a puzzling gaffe about history and current affairs.
Making her first trek to New Hampshire as a 2012 prospect, Bachmann told a GOP crowd in Concord: Youre the state where the shot was heard around the world at Lexington and Concord.
She makes Sarah Palin look like Count Metternich, groaned longtime GOP consultant Mike Murphy on Twitter after reading about the Concord confusion.

FWIW... not too much. 57 states, anyone?
Thank you Pollutico.
How many states are there? 57? Never mind...
Oh, but that’s different to the state-controlled media.
So I misplaced the battles Concord and Lexington by saying they were in New Hampshire. It was my mistake, Massachusetts is where they happened. New Hampshire is where they are still proud of it!
And by the way... That will be the last time I borrow President Obama's tele-promoter!
16 seconds... At least we have game.
Ask people where the Battle of Bunker Hill took place and I guarantee most will get it wrong.
Mike Murphy needs his mouth smacked.
When she says America watched FDR give his fireside chats on television during the Great Depression, then I’ll worry.
What fool would post this?
Like water off a duck’s back./
(she’s NOT immune to MSM search and destroy damage)
It took place on Breed’s hill.
Gaffe’s didn’t seem to stop Biden from becoming VP - and he’s the gaffe-master.
This article author is “making a mountain out of a mole hill.”
Apparently, the same kind of fool who likes to post daily Pollutico hit pieces on Sarah Palin.
Yeah...the StarTribune is having a field day with this.
Nevermind what Biden spouts on a daily basis, or the out and out lies from Zero’s presser yesterday concerning oil drilling and production....
She will make a perfect President then since all the past Presidents have made similar mistakes.
If you ask Sheila Jackson Lee she’s likely to tell you is was a massacre of slaves.
