Bachmann sits down with MinnPost

GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann sat down with an interview with MinnPost. She talked about the situations in Afghanistan, Iran and why so many liberals despise her:

“I don’t know. I’m a lovable little fuzz ball! I have no idea what they would have to fear. I guess you would have to ask them; they would have the better answer to your question. I am doing my job. That’s what I was elected to do. I don’t fear the left, and maybe that’s part of the loathing that they feel toward me. I’m not afraid to speak out on conservative positions and on issues. We’re a deep-blue state, we’re a strong liberal, Democrat state.

She also discussed a possible run for the U.S. Senate:

“I won’t close the door on anything. But, you know, I never anticipated going into politics. I never saw that as my future. I was an accidental state senator. I didn’t intend to run for office, and then I was recruited and encouraged to run for Congress when my predecessor, Mark Kennedy, ran for the Senate. So, elective office wasn’t something that I sought out. . …So, no, I don’t have my sights set on the U.S. Senate, or on anything else.”
