(Newser) – In between taking potshots at ObamaCare and the economy, Michele Bachmann had some words of comfort for President Obama yesterday: Not to worry, because after she kicks him to the curb next year, he won't have to join the ranks of the unemployed. "I want you to know, as president of the United States, I look forward to creating real jobs for both the Treasury secretary and the president of the United States," Bachmann told a small rally in Des Moines.

Bachmann appears to be kicking the rhetoric up a notch, notes CNN, which could hurt her among moderates. But she's charging right in, bashing Obama as having "cost this economy millions of jobs," and asking "who, with all due respect, in their right mind would propose a massive government takeover" of health care, which she derided as costing thousands of jobs.

Bachmann and the repub HOR have yet to pass a single bill to create a single job. Saying NO! to those who are trying is the best they can do.

Run Michelle, run!!! Every democrat in the world wants you to run so your ignorance, racism and homophobia can give Obama the biggest landslide in American Presidential history. How's that gaybashing husband of yours, honey? Bring HIM to the party. You realize you make GWB look smart by comparison. That is sad and funny at the same time. Yes, by all means you run.

Obama? A Job? Well, he's never had one of those but I would say he would be well suited for a demanding job as a game show host.
