Rep. Michele Bachmann railed against the Democrats’ “gangster government” at a Tea Party rally last week. Former President Bill Clinton pushed back by saying, “The were elected. They are not doing anything they were not elected to do.”

Fox News contributor Brit Hume was quick to defend Bachmann Sunday. Hume said Bachmann was simply talking about “defeating them at the polls. What’s wrong with that?”
