Discussing the June jobs report, Carl Quintanilla of CNBC asked Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) if high unemployment will help her presidential campaign. Bachmann revealed her first loyalty, and it sure isn’t the country. Watch:
Quintanilla: Does it strike you that as the unemployment rate goes up, your chances of winning office also go up?
Bachmann: Well, that could be. Again, I hope so.
