Granitegrok posted this video of Rep. Michele Bachmann addressing a GOP fundraiser in Nashua, NH on Saturday, March 12, 2011. Bachmann is not only the leader of the House Tea Party Caucus, she is also openly considering running for president in 2012.
The Minnesota Congresswoman also made stops in Manchester and Barrington.
"I brought a tea bag today and wondered if anyone cared for tea," Bachmann joked at Granite State Patriots Liberty PAC fundraiser in Barrington, while holding a tea bag out in front of the crowd.
Meanwhile, a major gaffe Bachmann made during her trip to the Granite State has left her political opponents in stitches.
"What I love about New Hampshire and what we have in common is our extreme love for liberty," she said. "Your the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord."
Bachmann was apparently referring to the Battle of Concord and Lexington, which marked the start of the Revolutionary War. This battle actually took place in Massachusetts, a fact taught at every elementary school in New England. The gaffe is making headlines on news sites across the web today, from Real Clear Politics to The Economist.
