Bachmann’s new Theme Song ‘The Promised Land’ Fits her fundamental base
Bachmann got shot down by Tom Petty and Katrina and the Waves when she picked their songs, so now she’s wooing audiences in Iowa with “The Promised Land” from Elvis blaring…
In the two days she has traversed Iowa on a bus, Michele Bachmann has illustrated her strategy for the state’s caucuses — stitching together the evangelical voters who held major sway in the 2008 voting and the “tea party” activists whose power has risen since then.
Before hundreds of evangelical worshipers in a cavernous megachurch Sunday, Bachmann delivered a deeply personal speech tailor-made for their concerns, detailing how a miscarriage cemented her views on abortion and describing her personal connection to Israel and the moment she accepted Jesus Christ as her savior.
Bachmann said she was raised a Lutheran but didn’t “get it” until one morning when she was 16 and attended a prayer meeting before school in her cheerleader uniform.
“It was in 1972, Nov. 1, when I bowed my knee and gave my heart to Jesus Christ, when I recognized, as the Bible says, all have sinned, all have fallen short, all need a savior,” she said. “And I came to the realization that even though I thought I was a nice person — I wasn’t doing drugs, I wasn’t wild, I wasn’t drinking — it didn’t matter. I was a sinner. I needed a savior. It changed me; it changed every part of me.”
