article imageMichele Bachmann's GOP strategy for beating Hillary Clinton — God

By Yukio Strachan     Sep 10, 2013 in Politics
Former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has come up with an innovative strategy for Republicans to take back the white house in 2016: "Cry out to God," she said.
Right Wing Watch caught the retiring Minnesota Representative floating the idea while on a radio show Monday.
“All David needed was one smooth stone to fell the giant,” Bachmann told Christian Right radio host Jan Markell, invoking the bible story of David and Goliath.
Bachmann used this story to illustrate an important point for Markell. If ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announces her bid for the 2016 presidential race, Bachmann said there is no need to worry about her. God will help stop the former secretary of state from becoming president.
“It wasn’t the stone," she said referring back to the story, "it wasn’t David, it was the strong right arm of a holy God. And, again, I believe that it’s, in some ways, up to us — if we repent, if we cry out to God, we have no idea what the Lord God will do for us in 2016.”
According to Raw Story, Bachmann then clarified for Markell that she did not believe Republicans should focus on one person or president being “our savior,” calling for her party to find the right message and sort out how it uses technology.
As MSNBC points out, while Bachmann and others in the GOP may be loudly or secretly praying against a Clinton run, they aren't the only ones who pray: former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she prays Hillary will decide to run for president.
“Nobody has been first lady, senator and now secretary of state,” she said. “So putting everything aside that she is a woman, she’d be the best qualified person we’ve seen, with all due respect to President Clinton when he went in, President Obama and President Bush and everybody else.”
