Republican presidential candidate and Tea Party beloved Bachmann told a Florida crowd Sunday that Hurricane Irene and other natural disasters were God's way of informing political figures that they need to downsize government and cut back. The statement is only the latest statement from the candidate implying she has a direct channel with the divine. Source for this article: Michele Bachmann says Hurricane Irene was a message from God

Florida speech

Millions on the East Coast were left without power while another 21 individuals died with Hurricane Irene. While it was still raging on, Michele Bachmann was paying her first visit to Florida to speak at Sarasota, Florida. She took the opportunity to blame the storm on God's wrath and to say it was a clear sign to political figures that He wants them to adopt the Tea Party agenda. The candidate was just kidding, according to spokesperson for Bachmann Alice Steward.Bachmann said to a large group of more than 1,000:
"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?' Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending."

Jesus told her to run for Senate

This isn't the first time Bachmann has alluded to divine intervention in her political career. She has said that Jesus called on her to run for the Minnesota senate and that God controls "every bit of life, including sociology, theology, biology, and politics." Bachmann is looking for the evangelic Christian lobby to vote her in clearly as a powerful voting group.

Not the only person who thinks this

Her comments come right after remarks made on previous Fox host Glenn Beck's radio show; he said:
"How many warnings do you think you’re going to get and how many warnings do you deserve? This hurricane that is coming thorough the East Coast, for anybody who’s in the East Coast and has been listening to me say ‘Food storage!’ ‘Be prepared!’ If you’ve waited, this hurricane is a blessing. It is a blessing. It is God reminding you - as was the earthquake last week - its God reminding you you’re not in control."

More like a religion

It seems more like a sermon being preached than other things when Bachmann and other Tea Party members speak. It seems like theocracy is what the party is apparently pushing.

thanks for the thread ashanti and for being politically aware..maybe others on this board may become so in the future as it is very obvious while we are so preoccupied there are those in our government that want to take away the rights our people have fought so hard to get.. keep reading- i will
