Michele Bachmann on Hurricane Irene: A Warning From God to Rein in Spending!

by at . Comments

Minnesota Congresswoman and GOP Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was apparently quoted as saying that essentially, last week's earthquake and this past weekend's Hurricane Irene were messages from God.

God's point: Federal deficits are totally out of control!

Bachmann told Floridians Sunday that Irene and the quake felt along much of the East Coast last week were messages from God to warn "politicians" to start heeding divine guidance ... via small government conservatives, obvi.

"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?'" Bachmann told a crowd in Sarasota, Fla.

"Listen to the American people, because the American people are roaring. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in spending."

Michele is evidently trying to link God's will and natural disasters with those who believe the U.S. government is too large and intrudes too much on people.

Bachmann's comments come on the heels of similar remarks that Glenn Beck, the former Fox News personality, made about the tsunami that hit Japan.

Both feel this great nation is a financially and morally bankrupt mess, one increasingly vulnerable to the horrors of big-government liberals and/or God.

Of course, hurricanes will also become increasingly common as ocean water temperatures rise due to global warming ... which they deny even exists.

For what it's worth, a Bachmann spokeswoman said the candidate was joking and that her comments weren't serious. That very well could be the case.

The fact that it even has to be clarified, however? Wow.

This woman is a kook and if god had anything to say about the matter he wud be upset with every politician we got becuz all they do is lie and scam. Yea michele is so against government help until it helps her! She loves her farm subsuties (sp) and so does her husband who also get subsuties for his medical clinic. Such bs!

I totally agree with her. In order to know GOD we have to be obedient and full of love. America is a trend setter when it comes to moral decline. The rest of the world follows as copycats. We need to know that GOD's standards and not the world standards are not the same. Solution - READ the BIBLE and TRY and copy GOD's standards. Much Love
Christ in US - the HOPE OF GLORY.

I totally agree with u cb! Michele Bachmann is a reminder to us all that bigotry and hatred towards others haven't changed much over the decades. What ever happened to treating others as u would want to be treated???

Michele Bachmann and her husband are both very far out. Not good for the U.S. She is running on her own “gay agenda� platform. We are closing schools, laying people off. Families are being foreclosed on and being put out in the streets. And all this Republican running for President and her husband can do is talk about is “praying away the gay�. It is a good money maker for her, but we have bigger things to do, and I am hopping God has too. If you or your church has the gay agenda on your mind, all the time you may need to set down and talk with someone. We need to start looking at what is best for the country. Not our own religion’s views, that blow in the wind.
