Sure, let's go with the clown oneWe’ve seen this ruse before, Bachmann. You think no one would suspect it, then you get caught, and now you’re all, “Oh, I’m done being Swiss.” She only loves “America” now. We’re not buying it, SPY. This continues to all be the Left’s fault.

Here’s her letter, which essentially says, “I FUCKING LOVE THE UNITED STATES, HAMBURGERS, PIE, AND WAR.” The Greatest. Nation. The World. Has. Ever. Known. Ever. Best. Winners. God. America:

“Today I sent a letter to the Swiss Consulate requesting withdrawal of my dual Swiss citizenship, which was conferred upon me by operation of Swiss law when I married my husband in 1978.”

“I took this action because I want to make it perfectly clear: I was born in America and I am a proud American citizen. I am, and always have been, 100 percent committed to our United States Constitution and the United States of America. As the daughter of an Air Force veteran, stepdaughter of an Army veteran and sister of a Navy veteran, I am proud of my allegiance to the greatest nation the world has ever known.”

This is so stupid funny. Can you imagine caring about this? We knew they’d freak but wow, just check out this one column in the DC Examiner: “Michele Bachmann must immediately step down.” They hate her now. Thanks a lot, moral relativist post-national Left.

    • sewollef

      It does mean as a Swiss citizen, you are obliged to serve in the Swiss military. As this states:

      "Having another citizenship does not, in general, influence Swiss military requirements. Swiss who can show they have dual citizenship and have fulfilled military service requirements, civil service or other related duties in that country are excused from Swiss military obligations according to accords signed with those states. Agreements exist with, among others, Germany, France, and the US.

      For more information on military obligations for Swiss abroad and dual citizens, please contact army commanders, personnel division: Führungsstab der Armee, Personelles der Armee (FGG 1), Sektion Wehrpflicht/ Mutationen, 3003 Bern."

      Women can sidestep that requirement though… shame really.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Maybe she found out that Swiss citizens are required to buy health insurance, by government mandate. (You can see how it's wrecked their economy.)

    “Today I sent a letter to the Swiss Consulate requesting withdrawal of my dual Swiss citizenship, which was conferred upon me by operation of Swiss law when I married my husband in 1978.”

    Oh, so it was imposed on you without your knowledge or consent? Then what's up with the previous sentence that says "Two days after a Swiss TV news crew broke the story that Bachmann sought in February to have her Swiss citizenship registered by Swiss authorities…?"

    And of course she's one of the shrill voices on the right repeating the meme that President Obama blames everyone else for his problems, while she's the one actually doing that.

    • Oh Wookies — you and your "Gotcha!" questions answers…

    • As a dual citizen myself, allow me:

      You can have dual citizenship but never know it. She got hers by marry Marcia…I mean, Marcus. The Swiss government never officially recognized it, but by law, she had it.

      So when she realized she was eligible, it really is just a matter of filling in a form, which acknowledges that she now recognizes she has the citizenship she's had since she married Marsha….MARCUS.

      In other words, she's weaseling, because it takes an affirmative act, not a passive one, to do that.

      • SayItWithWookies

        Yesterday she was a proud citizen of Switzerland who had applied to have that made official, and today she's correcting something that was an automatic and bureaucratic change of status from way back — I'm sure the Swiss are thrilled with her high-handed "I'm an American all the way" rhetoric too.

        • They'll declare war, no doubt. You know those swiss, always taking sides…

  • First Lugar, next Michelle?

    Firmly opposed to gay marriage, she may not know that Switzerland recognizes same-sex partnerships. In a 2005 referendum, same-sex couples were granted the same rights as married couples in next of kin status, insurance, taxation, and shared possession of dwelling. In fact, it was the first nation to pass such a law by referendum," notes the Washington Post.
    Further, assisted suicide has been legal in Switzerland since the 1940s, and if Bachmann does decide to live in Switzerland, the fierce opponent of ObamaCare will discover that all Swiss citizens are required to purchase basic health insurance. That's called a government mandate.

    • Chichikovovich

      On the other hand, the place has some attractive associations for Bachmann. For example, John Calvin had Michael Servetus burned alive on a pile of Servetus's own books there, for doubting the doctrines of the Trinity and infant baptism in print.
