... after I take yours

(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.
