>>> let's all say happy birthday to elvis presley today. happy birthday !
>> welcome back to "the ed show." that was congresswoman michele bachmann of minnesota wishing elvis presley happy birthday on the anniversary of his death. congresswoman bachmann has now resurfaced after barely holding on to her seat in the last election in minnesota. in an interview with patrick henry college , she described her performance as a presidential candidate .
>> and i was very proud of the fact that i didn't get anything wrong that i said during the course of the debates. i didn't get anything wrong, and that's a huge arena.
>> well, it is. and here are just a few things that congresswoman michele bachmann got wrong during the republican primary debates. she said president obama canceled the keystone pipeline . simply not true. she didn't seem to know libya is in africa. she denied ever saying that hpv vaccine was dangerous, but she had said it was potentially dangerous in a previous debate. she said president obama had agreed to just $21 billion in budget cuts when the real number was $917 billion over ten years. she repeated a popular republican lie about obama care taking $500 billion from medicare recipients. here is another claim she made about obama care.
>> the cbo, the congressional budget office has said that obama care will kill 800,000 jobs. what could the president be thinking by passing a bill like this knowing full well it will kill 800,000 jobs?
>> well, the congressional budget office never said obama care would kill jobs. one of bachmann's more interesting mistakes happened outside the debate stage.
>> just like john wayne was from waterloo, iowa, that's the kind of spirit that i have too.
>> spirit. john wayne wasn't born in waterloo, iowa. it was john wayne gacy , the serial killer . congresswoman michele bachmann , congratulations on a stellar presidential run. please do it again.
>>> tonight in our survey, i asked you what is more offensive, john boehner 's language, or john boehner 's job performance. 3% of you say boehner's language. 97% of you say his performance.
>>> coming up, it has been one year since the shooting death of trayvon martin. we'll talk about what has changed and what hasn't when it comes to guns and stand-your-ground
