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."
