Prospective 2012 GOPer Michele Bachmann is worried about gays causing ‘bubbles’

Michele Bachmann was in Iowa over the weekend. She’s thinking about running for President. And, she’s worried about bubbles. As you might imagine, some of those bubbles involve her intense homophobia:

“The family is on a bubble right now. The rate of cohabitating couples in one year increased 13 percent,” she said. “The family is the ultimate first form and first unit in government and society.”

She added, “The bureaucrats now hate our values; there’s a war on marriage, a war on family, a war on fertility all while funding and promoting abortion.”

Bachmann continued, “We don’t need political correctness because most fundamentally I believe the building block of the family is what the government needs to do right now and support two-parent families as the foundation of our economic and social policy.”

She said for that reason, social issues need to be a priority. “We can’t put the so called social issues on the back burner while we are solving our economic challenges because the family is the solution to those challenges.”

Yet another bubble Bachmann sees is the “national security bubble,” and the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the ban on gay and lesbian servicemembers repealed by the U.S. Senate in December, is one of those things that is creating the bubble.

“President Obama is applying a politically correct standard to the United States military that cannot be tolerated in our country,” she said, adding that Obama is babying jihadists.

Well, only 80% of the American people support repealing DADT. Yet, in Bachmann’s world, it can’t be tolerated.

I think Bachmann is going to really going to give Santorum a contest over who is the most homophobic candidate.
