Bachmann Runs From CNN Reporter's Questions

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has added one more chapter to her history of irrationality. Bachmann, who was offended when Chris Wallace asked whether she was a "flake," falsely claimed at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that President Obama is living in unparalleled luxury at the White House, with taxpayers footing the bill. CNN's Anderson Copper stated that these accusations are untrue and sent Dana Bash to interview Bachmann about them. After running away, Bachmann expressed outrage that Bash would ask her about Obama's supposed dog walker instead of Benghazi. The astonished Bash reminded her, "But Congresswoman, you're the one who brought it up!" Watch:

Perhaps Bash could have taken a slightly different approach. She could have told Representative Bachman that she (Bash) will give her (Bachman) time to talk a moment about Benghazi, if she (Bachman) would just answer my one question about your other accusation. In reality, Bash let Bachman off the hook by not "compromising". Was Bash attempting to educate her audience or just playing "gatcha" with Bachman? I fear the latter in which case, Bachman fell into the trap.

Bash didn't have time to work out a deal with Bachmann, since the latter was running away from her. She wasn't playing "gotcha'; she just wanted an answer to a simple question.
