Michele Bachmann Knows How To Have A Good Conversation With God
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) doesn't want a lot for Christmas.
A few weeks after revealing her Iran bombing wish to President Barack Obama, it looks like that wish isn't panning out.
As Bachmann's time in Congress winds down, during this, the holiest of seasons, we remember some of her greatest conversations with her top aide: God. (And she's had a lot of them.)
Watch the video above.
1) They Talk About The Weather
"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?'"
2) They Talk About Running For Office
Schieffer: "Did God tell you he wanted you to run for the Minnesota state senate, or something like that?"
Bachmann: "I prayed about that as well."
3) They Talk About Repealing Obamacare
"I have great hope that the American people will have their voice heard and will be able to have their sway. Now, it isn't a guarantee. We've gotta do a lot of work between now and then, particularly on our knees in prayer."
4) They Talk About 9/11
"On September 11th, our nation has seen judgment, not once but twice on September 11th. And that's why we're going to have 9-1-1 pray, on that day."
5) They Talk About 2016
"I look at the story of David and Goliath. All David needed was one smooth stone to fell the giant. It wasn't the stone, it wasn't David, it was the strong right arm of a holy God. And again, I believe that it's in some ways up to us, if we repent, if we cry out to God, we have no idea what the lord God will do for us in 2016."
And their conversations worked out well for the deity, earning Him a shout-out in her farewell speech from the floor:
"Moses is directly above the double doors that lead into the center most part of this chamber. And in the face of Moses, his eyes look straight upon not only our nation's motto, 'In God We Trust,' but Moses' face looks full on, into the face of the speaker of the House."
