Bachmann Questions Obama's Patriotism

Minnesota Representative Michelle Bachmann said she believes Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama may hold "anti-American views," Minnesota Public Radio reported.

"I'm very concerned that he (Obama) may have anti-American views," the Republican Congresswoman from the 6th District told MSNBC's Chris Matthews.

Bachmann referenced Obama's connection to 1960's radical Bill Ayers in defending her statement, following a trend from Republican presidential candidate John McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin, the Star Tribune reported.

"Barack Obama didn't have a mild association with Bill Ayers," she said. "He had a very strong association with Bill Ayers."
