Despite dropping in the polls, Michele Bachmann is undeterred. God will, evidently, perform a miracle and vault her to the White House, no matter what.
In a town hall appearance Thursday in South Carolina, Bachmann answered a question from "undecided voter" Nikki Haley about the NLRB and Boeing (video above), and then made a couple of astonishing claims, even for her.
The Minnesota congresswoman struck an urgent tone, issuing dire warnings to voters of the consequences of not electing a Republican who will repeal Obama’s health care law in 2012.
“I have wept in Washington, D.C., watching what’s happening to our country,” Bachmann said.
Speaking in hushed and sometimes pleading tones, she warned that the implementation of Obama’s health care law would be a death knell to conservatism in America. “You can’t put socialized medicine into a country and think that ever again you can elect as president a Republican or conservative or even a tea partier and think somehow we’re going to get back to limited government. It won’t happen because socialized medicine is the definition of big government,” she said.
“That’s why this is it — 2012 is it,” she added, calling it a “last-chance election” for the country.
