Michele M. Bachmann, born April 6, 1956 (age 62), is a conservative and the first Republican woman to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Minnesota. She represents the 6th District of Minnesota.

A movement conservative, Michele Bachmann defeated a massive attempt by liberals to unseat her in 2008 and 2010. Prior to her election to Congress, she served in the Minnesota state legislature since first being elected there in 2000 as a check against the leftists then encroaching on Minnesota's freedoms.

Michele Bachmann, an attorney, is a former tax litigator. She has five children and has also opened her home to 23 foster children.[2]

Bachmann is pro-life, pro-gun,[3] pro-religion and holds many other core conservative values. She is widely considered one of the most important politicians in the fight against evolution. A search for her on Google turns up five positive sites for every 100 nasty liberal smear sites, like the Huffington Post. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has now officially put the outspoken Minnesota Republican in their sights with the bachmannwatch website. She has been heavily influenced by Francis Shaeffer, and is not afraid to defend her conservative Christian moral convictions against even the most desperate attacks by liberals.

2012 Presidential Candidate

Michele Bachmann became one of the nation's first female presidential candidate from the GOP. Her campaign showed promise with a win in the Iowa straw poll 2011, however the Iowa caucus in 2012 would turn out much different. Her campaign expected more from Iowans but she finished near the bottom. After the less-than-favorable showing she decided to formally suspend her campaign. She was lampooned as a non-intellectual, a target for pathetic journalism to smear. [4] In addition, the MSM went after her husband Marcus. They mock his demeanor as woman-like. [5]

Liberal Hysteria about Bachmann

Liberals have been hysterical about some of the candid observations of Congresswoman Bachmann. She was targeted for comments made seeking an investigation into the Obama-Ayers connection, the "tolerant" liberal establishment even compared her to the Nazis.[6] She deserves many compliments for her insight and courage. Congresswoman Rep. Bachmann "has shown an uncanny knack for infuriating critics with sometimes off-the-wall behavior and comments, all the while advancing her own political career." [7]

The liberal smears are part of a familiar pattern whereby they work overtime to try to discredit conservative women or minorities. The reason is obvious: conservative women and minorities disprove the falsehood that liberals are better for them.

Liberals have also tried to smear Michele Bachmann for her work as a tax attorney for the IRS. As usual, Congresswoman Bachmann rose above the liberal smears when she told a crowd "I went to work into that system because the first rule of war is 'know your enemy.'"[8] Their newest line of attack is trying to demonize her opposition to government mandated vaccinations when abstinence is the truest prevention of HPV infection.

Bachmann's husband has also been the target of smears by liberals, many of whom disapprove of his work to help misguided gay teens.
