Politico | Michele Bachmann: Earthquake and Hurricane a Sign Washington Isn’t Listening or Something

Speaking in Florida, Michele Bachmann ventures into the risky territory of  attributing political motive to natural disasters, calling the events of the  last week a wake-up call from above:

She hailed the tea party as being common-sense Americans who understand  government shouldn’t spend more than it takes in, know they’re taxed enough  already and want government to abide by the Constitution.

“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians.  We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start  listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people  are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and  we’ve got to rein in the spending.”
