(CBS News) In impassioned remarks at Friday’s Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., former GOP presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., went after President Obama on foreign policy, calling him the “most dangerous president we have ever had,” and directly tying his policies to the recent violence in Egypt and Libya.
Bachmann, in remarks at Washington’s Omni Shoreham hotel, accused the Obama administration of responding to the chaos – which resulted in the death of four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya – with “weakness and lack of resolve.”

“This was an intentional act that was done by radical Islamists who seek to impose their set of beliefs on the rest of the world and we will not stand for it,” Bachmann continued. “No one here is suggesting that all Muslims are radical but we should not be ignorant of the objective reality that there’s a very radical wing of Islam that’s dedicated to the destruction of America, of Israel, and Israel’s allies, and what we’re watching developing before our eyes today are the direct consequences of this administration’s policy of apology and appeasement across the globe.”
