On MSNBC’s Hardball, Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., said the "collection of friends that Barack Obama has had over this life" — specifically Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers — "calls into question what Barack Obama’s true beliefs and values and thoughts are."

Bachmann also pointed out that Obama had been rated one year by the National Journal as the most liberal Senator, prompting Chris Matthews to ask what the connection is between being liberal and being anti-American.

"The liberals that are Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers  they’re over the top anti-American," Bachmann said, "Remember it was Michelle Obama who said she’s only recently proud of her country, these are very anti-American views."

"I’m very concerned that he may have anti-American views," Bachmann said.

"The people that Barack Obama has been associating with are anti-American, by and large," Bachmann said.
