Rep. Michele Bachmann, Minnesota Republican, excited Right Online attendees in Las Vegas on Friday discussing issues ranging from from the economy to health care. In her speech to the crowd, Ms. Bachmann ginned up the crowd when she told them she believed the president was only going to be around for one term.
“The only time she really ever really looked at her notes was when she read us [statistics], but she was fantastic,” said Honey Levin of Scottsdale, Arizona.
“I thought it was a phenomenal speech she gave. It sounded like she had aspirations to be president. She was extremely optimistic. She talked about America in ways you think of Ronald Reagan talking about America,” Scott Schneider of Eau Claire, Wisconsin told me.
Others at the more right of center conference pointed out that Ms. Bachmann is in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s cross hairs to take out this November, which makes the Minnesota congresswoman more likable to Republican supporters.
The Conservative conference, held at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas, hosted other headliners like Republican Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle, Congressman Mike Pence, Indiana Republican, and conservative activist and talk radio host Herman Cain.
