Bachmann: The Conservative Brand Is Still Strong (Video)
At today’s Heritage Foundation briefing, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) told the audience of conservative bloggers that “‘Republican’ still isn’t a positive brand name for people but ‘conservative’ is.” She said that a new conservative movement “under that banner coalition of respecting the constitution [...] is a winning formula going forward.”
Bachmann announced a threefold strategy: “Number one, we have to defeat [the Democratic] leadership. … We’ll have that opportunity next year to do exactly that.” Second, “defund the left. … The American people believe that Congress wastes 50 percent — 50 cents or 50 percent of every dollar it spends. God love the American people. They get it.” Finally, she wants to pass “repealer bill[s]” to dismantle the work of the Democratic Congress.
