Michele M. Bachmann, born April 6, 1956 (age 64), 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 defeat 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.
Bachmann is pro-life, pro-gun, pro-religion and holds many other core conservative values. 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.
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. 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."
