Michele Bachmann Essay

1679 words - 7 pages

Michele Bachmann is a presidential candidate and a Minnesota congresswoman. She is known for her success as a small business owner, a U.S. tax attorney, federal lawmaker, a wife, and mother. She has made her appearance known to the public due to her outspoken negativity towards the President of the United States, and her famous quote "Barack Obama is a one term President". Although the election is far away, Bachmann has managed to cause individuals to have a "change of heart" towards her vote, due to her controversial statements. Many have realized that Bachmann voices without actual facts; therefore, causing individuals’ to lack confidence in her campaign and see her as another Sarah Palin.

Michele Bachmann accused President Obama of having a "shocking" lack of empathy toward Americans victimized by the struggling economy (Oliphant). While some may say that Bachmann has targeted the President because she's trying to show citizens that she would be the best candidate for the job, many can argue the exact opposite. Bachmann should be considering ways to solve the economy's crisis, instead of having a field day with the press that many citizens sense will not benefit them in the long run. Many would like to see her come up with a solution for the problem, and see how she would be a dependable president.
