Michele Bachmann; “I Am In for 2012”

Bookmark and Share Speaking this weekend at a meeting of NICHE, the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators, Congresswoman Bachmann looked and sounded like a candidate for President as she spoke of broadly articulated themes of independence and American exceptionalism thatwere based on the free power of the people, not the sweeping authority of federal bureaucracy.

She addressed the home schooling audience as one of them, a home schooling parents. The Congresswoman essentially to tied her stump speech into the theme of the event by claiming that just as the sovereignty of parents is being encroached upon by the state, so is the sovereignty of our nation. For the speech in it’s entirety, see below.

Bachmann continues to try to endear herself to Iowans by accentuating her Iowa roots and calling herself an Iowegian, one of the many people in Iowa who are of Norwegian ancestry and have helped turn Iowa in to the breadbasket of the nation.

But it was in her closing statement that she really sounded like a the hopeful owner of a lottery ticket who knows you gotta’ be in it to win it, as she proclaimed;

“This is the indispensable nation. And so I ask you will you consider these words as you look forward to 2012. Whether you are willing to be in, and whether you are willing to lay it on the line. I believe you are. I know that I am. I am in for 2012 to make sure that that torch of liberty is not extinguished on our watch because Lincoln was right. We can’t trust the politicians. We can only trust the politicians.”
