Michele Bachmann wants everyone to know that a hurricane is on the way. While speaking at a Tea Party-dominated event in Tampa, Florida on Monday, the former GOP presidential hopeful was very direct in mentioning that she wasn’t talking about Tropical Storm Isaac.
Speaking at her Tampa, Florida rally, Bachmann told her supporters:
“We’re quite literally looking at a hurricane here in Florida. We’re looking at a political hurricane in this country. We are looking at a spiritual hurricane in our land. And it is time for each one of us to show up and suit up and stand up and realize that in this time and in this day we pour it out for Him.”
Bachmann gave her speech at an unsanctioned RNC event at a local church where she was joined by fellow Tea Party favorite Herman Cain.
You may recall that one year prior, Michele Bachmann made the claim that Hurricane Irene arrived to punish the government for its free-spending ways. Also during a speech in Florida, she had proclaimed:
“Washington, DC, you’d think by now they’d get the message … An earthquake, a hurricane, are you listening? The American people have done everything they possibly can, now it’s time for an act of God and we’re getting it.”
Mitt Romney and his fellow Republicans have not commented on Michelle Bachmann’s speech, probably because they are busily attempting to avoid the real hurricane that is in fact hitting Florida.
Do you agree with Michele Bachmann’s hurricane analogy, or should she back away from the public spotlight and allow her fellow Republicans to keep the focus on Mitt Romney?
