Michele Bachmann’s Claim That Maxine Waters Has Socialist Designs is Backed Up By… Well, Maxine Waters

Ooh, this isn’t going to sit well with the Sociali… er, I mean “progressives”… because Michele Bachmann’s using the dreaded “S” word:

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, who won the Iowa Republican straw poll earlier in the month, took off the gloves on Wednesday and tore into President Barack Obama and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif..

“As the stock market continues to sink deeper, unemployment lines are growing longer and the debt is increasing by millions, President Obama seems more interested in checking his own poll numbers than he is in providing any real leadership to create jobs and fix our economy,” insisted Bachmann. “And the Democratic leadership in Congress is no better. Earlier this week, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters shouted, ‘the tea party can go straight to hell.’ The Democrats would rather attack honest, patriotic Americans than try to rein in government spending or reduce the deficit.

“President Obama’s failed leadership and Maxine Waters’ socialist policies have driven our economy into a deep financial hole. If the United States is going to get back on a path to prosperity it begins by ensuring Obama is a one-term president,” added Bachmann.

Who says Maxine Waters has Socialist designs? I mean, aside from Maxine Waters. Here’s a classic from 2008:
