(NewsCore) - COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Minnesota congresswoman and 2012 presidential candidate Michele Bachmann left some listeners scratching their heads Thursday when she said during a radio show interview that the US was in danger of being eclipsed by the Soviet Union.
Bachmann made the remark during an appearance on the Jay Sekulow radio show while campaigning in South Carolina.
"It really is about jobs and the economy," Bachmann said when asked what was on the minds of American voters she met on the trail.
"But what people recognize is that there's a fear that the United States is in an unstoppable decline. They see the rise of China, the rise of India, the rise of the Soviet Union and our loss militarily going forward."
The Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991 at the end of the Cold War.

A laugh a day.
They’ll always be Soviets to me.
I mean COME ON, Michelle. JEEEZ. Stop setting up hits like this. Fergodsake, I’m starting to wonder about this chick.
Ed Rollins is the campaign guy...see what Ed Rollins brings?
I don't agree with you about much, TD, but on this one I think we are simpatico.
Is there no one of quality on her team that she can spend five minutes with before heading out on stage to discuss her basic points?
“How about I wish Happy Birthday to Elvis?”
“Oh, it’s his birthday?”
“Well, Google it to make sure.”
Russians don't really deserve a moniker for their own nation. I remember some of the Russian posters that used to be here; whenever I'd bring up the crimes of the USSR, they'd always blame it on the Georgians, always.
yea she does have a duh factor it seems..but its with gusto eh?
But that could work, in negotiations as president she could just go off and shake her head a few times and say she feels better now, the other side would be , she’s a craaazy b*^&...
LOL! Well played.
Not only is she lacking in class, but just a nut job!
No! These aides are like this: “Look, you’re in South, down here they love Elvis, say something about Elvis to connect with the crowd, I think there’s something going on big at Graceland, it has to be his birthday, wish him a Happy Birthday!”
That’s how it goes!
Imagine the outcry if Sarah had said this?? Bachmann will mostly get a pass
I mean, I really wanted to like her, but whatever the press is saying about Palin might needed to have been reserved for Bachmann.
Stick a fork in her! She’s done!
Not with me, she doesn't. This happens TOO OFTEN.
Bachmann is irrelevant, nobody even takes her seriously enough in the first place.....More are scared of Palin, so they will target her more.
It just happens too often. If it happened once, twice, maybe even three times.... but this has gotta be about time six.
Now I understand why!
