Michele Bachmann: The Darling of CPAC

Republicans, Women in Politics

In a classic “rally the base” speech for the opening of the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann embraced the role of tea party cheerleader to prepare the 11,000 loyalists listening for their march to the 2012 elections.

Armed with statistics about conservative victories in 2010 and America’s national debt, she fulfilled the obligation of any good opening keynote speaker by firing up the attendees and stoking their enthusiasm for the big political “ask” at the end.

After spoofing her own camera malfunction moment in her response to President Obama’s State of the Union address, Bachmann got to work, whipping the conservative crowd into a frenzy.

What was all the frenzy about?  You can read the rest of my take on Bachmann’s speech at Politics Daily!
