Bachmann Zeros In On Social Issues At Faith And Freedom Conference


Rep. Michelle Bachmann speaks to the Faith and Freedom Conference and Strategy Briefing in Washington DC, on Friday, June 3, 2011. (Chet Susslin)

But the standing ovation Bachmann drew Friday--the first of the day to come in the middle of a speech--came when the congresswoman shifted to her signature attack on President Obama's health care reform. "We will repeal Obamacare--it will happen," she said, growing louder with encouragement from the crowd. "I will not rest until we appeal Obamacare; America will not rest until we repeal Obamacare. We'll take it to the bank ... the American people are with us on this issue!" she shouted. Bachmann concluded with a Bible verse--Timothy 2:2, "which tells us to pray for those in authority"--and a prayer, polishing off what will likely be a well-received address just weeks before she's expected to officially announce her entrance into the 2012 presidential field. 6/6 CORRECTION: The original version of this story misspelled the word spear when citing Bachmann saying, "That was the height of the controversy and I was at the tip of the spear in that effort."
