    I watched this interview and anyone can see that FOX News is as pissed off as the Leant Left. They are losing control of the Republican Party and cannot stand it. The Progressive RNC and the American Leant Leftists hate that the American people are saying,... "No! You do not get to pick the next canidate, we do."

    As long as we, the American Independents and Right, hold the line, we will take back our Govt.

    ---"On yesterday’s Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked guest Michele Bachmann whether “she was a flake.”--

    “The rap on you in Washington is that you have a history of questionable statements, some would say gaffes,…are you a flake?”

    Responded a calm but frustrated-looking Bachmann: “Well I think that would be insulting to say something like that, because I’m a serious person.”

    Here’s the clip of the full interview (which does cover a lot of substantive ground).  The “flake” part enters in the 14th minute: … s-a-flake/

    Shortly after the pre-taped interview aired on Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace posted his regular, post-show “Wallace Unplugged” video. In it, he apologized for the question noting that many views were “more than perturbed” by the phrasing: “And since in the end it’s really all about the answers and not about the questions. I messed up, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean any disrespect.”

    However, Bachmann doesn’t seem to be overly impressed with the apology at this point. Politico:

    Via POLITICO’s Jennifer Epstein, Michele Bachmann isn’t accepting an apology from Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace for asking her yesterday, “Are you a flake?”

    ABC News’ Jon Karl, who’s been getting face-time with Bachmann in Waterloo in advance of her formal campaign announcement, played a clip of the web video in which Wallace said, “I messed up. I’m sorry.”

    When Karl asked if she accepts the apology, Bachmann brushed aside the question this way: “I think that it’s insulting to insinuate that a candidate for president is less than serious.”

    Trying the question again, Bachmann replied, “Those are the small issues. I’m focused on the big ones.”-

    They just cannot stand it.

      That question wouldn't even be acceptable if it was asked of Joe Biden or Obama or Pelosi.   Well....yeah maybe it would. lol.

      Bachmann responded with grace and strength,  of the kind that many others do not have.
