Michele Bachmann entered the political world shaking her fist and rallying protestors against Obama’s policies. She has been one of the most colourful politicians in the past few years. CNN’s “Keeping Them Honest” segment had Anderson Cooper busy trying to fact check her statements, which have notoriously been off the mark.
Bachmann herself admits that she wasn’t always politically correct, but she defends her actions by saying that she was genuinely worried about certain issues involving the country and its leadership.
LinkedIn and Dr. Daniel Amen report that while she’s only been in politics for eight years, she has made quite a name for herself, making national headlines by embracing the tea party movement and showing her leadership skills during the financial crisis.
Shortly after entering politics, Bachmann took on the president of her own party, George W. Bush, asking about the $700 billion payout to Wall Street bill that Bush wanted to pass. She questioned the reasoning of it, and what exactly the money was going to be used for. No answers were forthcoming.
Bachmann says that sexism is alive and well in all levels of politics. It’s still a man’s world, and it can be difficult for a woman to infiltrate into a group of male politicians. The dynamics are very different.
After four terms in Congress, Bachmann is set to exit the world of politics and move on to ‘better’ things.
