Michelle Bachmann “Lit Up The Gathering” In Iowa
At least that’s what Haley Barbour is saying about her appearance at Rep. Steve King’s conference…and after watching this video I tend to agree. She really knows how to rile up a conservative crowd. Lots of good old fashiony call and response speechifying.
So big deal, right?
Well, when it comes to the caucuses in Iowa, let’s remember that this is the state that voted for Pat Robertson over George Bush in ’88.
Talking loudly and waving her hands, a pumped Bachmann used a slide presentation of various numbers — the national debt, the cost of a gallon of gas two years ago the day before Obama took office, the corporate tax rate — to make her points and pull the crowd in.
Suggesting that Iowa caucus voters had the power to halt Obama, Bachmann wrapped up her speech by asking, “Are you in? Are you in for 2012?”
“I agree with you!” she said as the crowd cheered, and added, “I’m in!”
