As the Carolinas work to recover from devastating floods, Michelle Bachmann seeks to capitalize on the tragedy by using it to criticize President Obama’s office. She claims that there is a connection between the United States’ foreign policy and the flooding in North and South Carolina.

As Right Wing Watch explained, Bachmann has a history of blaming natural disasters on President Obama:
Back in April, Bachmann said, “If we actually turn our back on Israel, as we are seeing Barack Obama do today, if that happens then I think we will see a scale and a level of pushback in the United States, negative consequences. I don’t know what they are, but I believe that the Bible is true and I believe that was the Bible says is that our nation and the people of our nation will reap a whirlwind. We could see economic disasters, natural disasters. The United States does not want to be in that position and unfortunately the people put into office Barack Obama, not only once but twice, and the people have to rise up against his actions and demand their leaders take steps accordingly.”
