Michele Bachmann has made no secret of the fact that she let her beliefs about prophecies in Revelation and other apocalyptic notions lead her while she was doing the nation's business in Congress.
Recently, Michele Bachmann spoke to End Times broadcaster Jan Markell about her belief that the National Security issues she fielded on the Intelligence Committee in Congress were a result of Biblical prophecy.
"I worked very hard on the Intelligence Committee to try and keep up with what was happening in the world. It got to such a crescendo that I could hardly keep up with it anymore. The events had picked up such a pace, and are going to continue."
Michele Bachmann also said that the United States has lost God's favor because America's citizens are becoming pagan. She says America's founders intended it to be a Christian country.
"Now the United States has taken a very different tact [sic] and turn than what we have known in our history. This new turn began somewhere along in the 40s and advanced especially in the early 60s, and now we are seeing, not only a post-Christian view that is prevailing int he United States, I think we are now embracing a pagan view."
Michele Bachmann lays much of this at the feet of President Obama.
“Barack Obama is intent, it is his number one goal, to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon... It is interesting to me if you look at the President's rhetoric and if you look at his actions, everything he has done is to cut the legs from under Israel and to lift up radical Islam... That’s why so many Christians I think are sad and despairing because we know what the word of God says... Why would you put the nuclear weapon in the hands of madmen who are Islamic radicals, who believe it's their religious duty to bomb Israel and to bomb the United States? That is where we're headed right now. And that's why the best thing we can do is have churches and pastors explain our times, believers need to get our lives right with God. Jesus Christ is coming back. We, in our lifetimes potentially, could see Jesus."
hey, i'm all for the rapture if it will make michele bachmann disappear.

President Obama got his chance to get a dig in at Michele Bachmann at the White House Correspondents Dinner this week when he said:
"Michele Bachmann actually predicted I would bring about the Biblical 'end of days.' Now, that's a legacy. I mean Lincoln, Washington – they didn't do that!"
In return, Michele Bachmann thanked him.
