Bachmann: God Gives Us Disasters To Tell Us To Cut Government


Earthquakes, hurricanes — these growing natural disasters have nothing to do with the man-made changes to our climate.  In fact, the only thing they have to do with man is his inability to spend within his means as a government.

Or so claims presidential candidate Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.  Speaking at a rally in Florida, Bachmann claimed God was sending the U.S. a message that big government spending can’t go on forever and implied that the disasters will continue if D.C. doesn’t clear up its debt.

According to the St. Petersburg Times, Bachmann told attendees, “I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending.”  When asked about the quote later, Bachmann’s campaign claimed she was just kidding.

Well, at least she didn’t blame it on gay marriage.

What has some non=existant mythical supernatural being got to do with "natural" disasters ?

Another nut job, British politicians are bad but at least they are not ignorant religious nutters like the ones that seem to plague the poor U.S.

DEFEAT her. She is a dangerous person to everyone's freedoms. I still haven't figured out how her husband bills medicare for "treating gays to be reformed." As far as I know he holds no mental health credential or state issued license for this practice. Also, homosexuality has NOT been considered a mental health diagnosis for years.

Thanks. That's the way God rolls, is it? And she knows this because she hears Him, right? Imagine....this woman wanted to be President. Are the people in her district that out of touch with what she says, or are there that many teabaggers in her district? Roberta G....the moratorium on Bachman news should be life.

Good to know that as a Christian, she considers her faith a superstition... Real Christians aren't this gullible.

What can be said about such people? Would they be taken seriously in a European country? NO.
