Bachmann Volleys with Sunday Hosts

Michele Bachmann was on multiple Sunday shows, doing a deft job of dealing with questions regarding whether she's offered responsible leadership on fiscal issues. With David Gregory, she pushed back strongly on the debt ceiling debate.

He's the one who threatened default - not me, not Republicans. I didn't see Republicans threatening default, I saw the president threatening default.

With Chris Wallace, Bachmann answered to charges of not being willing to compromise when big victories are being offered to the GOP.

That's the way it works in DC... The deal sounds so rosy at the very beginning, and usually the cuts are illusory... they're off into future years, and of course one congress can't bind the next congress.
