美“茶党女王”断言希拉里不会当选总统

美“茶党女王”米歇尔•巴克曼近日断言希拉里•克林顿不会当选下届美国总统。

Michele Bachmann claims Americans won't elect Hillary Clinton president because the 'guilt' that got Barack Obama elected doesn't apply to women

There's no 'pent-up desire' for someone to call Madame President, says the Minnesota conservative firebrand

After running for president in 2012, Bachmann now says the U.S. isn't 'ready' for a female chief executive

She says President Obama leveraged historical 'guilt' over civil-rights abuses in order to get elected

But 'people don't hold guilt for a woman,' she insists

Bachmann, the only GOP woman in the 2012 race, flamed out after news reports exposed the severe migraines that kept her out of action for days

Hillary Clinton won't be America's next president, says Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, because many U.S. voters 'aren’t ready' for a female president and don't hunger to break new ground the way they did with Barack Obama

'I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of [civil rights] guilt,' the outspoken conservative told Tribune Media Services columnist Cal Thomas, in a piece that first ran February 18.

'People don’t hold guilt for a woman,' she said, and even as Americans elect women at every other level of government, 'I don't think there is a pent-up desire' to call someone 'Madam President.'

Obama, Bachmann adds, had the advantage of being 'new and different,' while Mrs. Clinton has been a fixture in U.S. politics since the early 1990s.

'Based off her own personal experience, Rep. Bachmann found that voters weren’t simply interested in electing a president based on their gender,' Bachmann spokesman Dan Kotman told MailOnline, 'but were focused on finding a candidate based on their merits.'

'Isn’t that what the feminist movement is all about?'

Bachmann's months in a heated presidential primary battle during 2011 and 2012 ended quickly after details of her debilitating migraines emerged.

She was the sole female in a nine-person GOP field.

Hillary Clinton played that role on the Democratic side of the political ledger in 2008, and lasted far longer than the Bachmann would four years later.

The former U.S. senator and first lady won the New Hampshire Democratic Primary before fading in the end and losing the nomination to Barack Obama.

With Hillary on the far left and Michell on the far right, there's no love lost between the two.

If Clinton were to succeed her husband in the White House, Bachmann said, 'effectively she would be Obama's third and fourth term in office' since she was 'the godmother of Obamacare' in 1993.

But Hillary is beatable, she added

'She has a real problem when it comes to Benghazi,' says Bachmann of the 2012 terror attack in Libya that unfolded during Mrs. Clinton's time as Secretary of State.

'She was in charge during the Benghazi debacle. If a person reads the Senate Intelligence report and the House Foreign Affairs report released [last] week, it is damning for Hillary Clinton,' the tea party darling told the columnist.

Bachmann herself isn't running for re-election.She's facing a cloud of ethics uncertainties stemming from payments her campaign-related organizations made to an Iowa state legislator while he was stumping for her in the run-up to the 2012 Iowa Caucuses.

But Kotman said that Clinton's shortcomings will end her career without reaching America's political pinnacle.

'Tthe former Secretary of State has many glaring challenges to address,' he said.

米歇尔•巴克曼是美国明尼苏达州共和党议员,曾参选过2012年的美国总统共和党内初选。这位以直言不讳闻名的议员在2月18日告诉“论坛媒体服务集团”专栏作家卡•托马斯说,美国民众因为对公民权利有愧,才选了一位黑人总统,但人们对女性没有这种愧疚,也不会希望称呼某人为“总统女士”。

巴克曼还说奥巴马的优势在于其是政坛新人,又与众不同,而希拉里从上个世纪90年代起就已置身美国政界。

同时,巴克曼表示,如果希拉里当选,白宫就会如同奥巴马延续了第三、第四个任期,因为希拉里早在1993年就拥护类似奥巴马医改的方案。

巴克曼另外也指出,希拉里在利比亚班加西事件上负有重要责任。2012年班加西恐怖袭击事件发生时,希拉里时任美国国务卿。而据巴克曼说,如果人们阅读了上周发布的参议院情报机构和众议院外交事务机构的报告,就会发现对希拉里十分不利。
