Who Is Michele Bachmann?

If you are new to this site, you might be asking yourself this question:

Who in the world is Michele Bachmann?

Well, we are glad that you asked.

Michele Bachmann was the very first Republican woman to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Minnesota in 2006. She represents Minnesota's 6th congressional district which includes the far northern suburbs of the Twin Cities along with St. Cloud. In 2008, Michele was re-elected by defeating her Democratic and Independence Party endorsed opponent Elwyn Tinklenberg by a margin of 46.41% to 43.43%.

Michele has been one of the strongest voices in the U.S. Congress for fiscal responsibility. She has fought hard against the bailouts and ballooning government programs as Barack Obama and the Democrats seemingly try to spend the U.S. into economic oblivion. In addition, Michele has been one of the primary opponents of "Obamacare" and is doing all she can to try to keep the "health care reform" bill from becoming law.

Recently, a massive grassroots conservative rally organized by Michele Bachmann on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to protest the health care reform bill drew somewhere between 10,000 to 20,000 participants – far more than the 2,000 originally predicted.

The Truth is that Michele is quickly becoming a darling of the Tea Party crowd.


Because unlike most politicians she tells the truth. She speaks her mind and she speaks with common sense.

There are very few true conservatives anymore in Congress, but Bachmann is one of them and she is not afraid to speak out against America's march towards socialism. In encouraging her supporters to gather for the health care rally, she instructed them to be ready for constructive action.....

"Go into the Capitol and find members of Congress. Don't bring your pitchforks," Michele told her supporters, "bring your video cameras. And get them on record saying how they're going to vote and why."

At a very energetic 53 years of age, Bachmann is bringing life to a conservative movement that is looking for real leaders. Most Republicans will espouse empty conservative rhetoric if it will help them get elected, but then they never act very conservative once they get to Washington.

Michele Bachmann is different. Michele Bachmann is the real deal. That is why America needs Michele Bachmann to run for president in 2012.

The truth is that she has lived a really extraordinary life. The following information on her life before coming to Congress comes from her official website.....

Prior to serving in the U.S. Congress, Bachmann served in the Minnesota State Senate. She was elected to the Minnesota State Senate in 2000 where she championed the Taxpayers Bill of Rights. And, prior to that, Bachmann spent five years as a federal tax litigation attorney, working on hundreds of civil and criminal cases. That experience solidified Bachmann’s strong support for efforts to simplify the Tax Code and reduce tax burdens on family and small business budgets.

Congresswoman Bachmann is a graduate of Anoka High School and Winona State University. After earning her law degree, she went on to the College of William and Mary to get an LLM in tax law. Bachmann and her husband, Marcus, live in Stillwater where they own a small business mental health care practice that employs 42 people. The Bachmanns have five children, Lucas, Harrison, Elisa, Caroline, and Sophia. In addition, the Bachmanns have opened their home to 23 foster children, which has inspired Congresswoman Bachmann to become one of Congress’ leading advocates for foster and adopted children. She was recently honored with an appointment to the bipartisan Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s Advisory Board.

At the top of this blog you will find a link where you can contact Michele and encourage her to run for president in 2012. Of course for now she needs to focus on winning her district once again in 2010, but once she has done that, we are asking all true conservatives to join us in enlisting Michele to take on Barack Obama in 2012.

The truth is that we are currently in one of the most challenging times in America's history right now. But things are often the darkest right before the dawn. We need a real leader that will turn the United States away from socialism and back to the Constitution.

That leader is Michele Bachmann.
