Tea Partyer Bachmann Will Be at White House for Christmas

Friday, 03 Dec 2010 12:34 PM

Michele Bachmann may be Ebenezer Scrooge when it comes to the Obama administration, but that won’t keep her away from a White House Christmas party. The Washington Post reports  that the Minnesota Republican, who has accused President Obama of harboring “anti-American views,” will be at the White House Monday for the congressional Christmas party.

"It's the president. I respect the president even if we disagree on some issues," Bachmann told the Post.

Washington elites rarely pass on an invitation to the White House regardless of who is president. Democratic critics of President George W. Bush by and large did not decline invitations to White House Christmas parties, which are held for such diverse groups as members of Congress, reporters, Secret Service, and military families.

Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., told the Post the event was an opportunity for his wife, Cheryl, “to be Cinderella.” Bachmann told the Post that her daughter was even skipping a wedding to attend.
