Representative Michele Bachmann stumbles as she tries to explain how the policies of President Ronald Reagan and Britain’s Margaret Thatcher strengthened the US. She says Britain fought a war in the Falkland Islands in 1992. She’s off by a decade. The Falklands war happened in 1982.

Representative Bachmann, who is running for President, was speaking to the same US war Veterans President Obama spoke to earlier this week. She was at the national American Legion convention in Minneapolis.
