Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann's campaign says the congresswoman will deliver a foreign policy speech in Mt. Pleasant, SC Thursday, "that will lay out her framework for protecting the country against security threats while improving U.S. foreign relations."
Bachmann has criticized the Obama administration for what she says is its failure to stand behind the U.S. alliance with Israel. Bachmann has also criticized the administration for U.S. involvement in Libya,and she's called the decision to remove U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of the year a political move.
Bachmann has been campaigning in South Carolina this week. She will be in Michigan Wednesday evening with the other GOP candidates for a debate before heading back to South Carolina for more campaigning before another debate Saturday in Spartanburg, SC.
America used to work The people had work. The system worked. Hey, EVEN the Congress used to work...(sometimes). God knows, it was far, far, far from perfect - but at least we all had some share in the struggles AND the rewards. But somewhere along the way, we lost our way. And now we seem to have an economy and a political system that works only for the rich. What they call "trickle down economics"... just leaves most of us out in the cold cold rain. We need to get back to what America was, and what it should be, and what it can be. Occupy Wall Street is no longer just a place called Zuccotti Park - Zuccotti Park is everywhere. You can try to pen us in, you can beat us and arrest us, you can mace and tear-gas us , and you can try to "permit" us to death....but you can't kill an idea. You can't keep down a people’s hopes and dreams for a better life.....a life with dignity and freedom....for us... for our kids. More power to Occupy Wall Street, as it spreads to every town and city - because OWS is us, and for us, and by us. It comes up from the grassroots, and it lifts us up in turn. With OWS America has found it’s voice, and that voice demands fairness and justice. This land IS our land! AND WE WANT IT BACK! ...We want our lives back!... We want our future back! ....So why not take some time, find a quiet place somewhere, and consider this: Each of us has only one brief life...one chance...and many choices. It’s time to choose...and to act. If not now...then when? If not you....then who? You DO have the power my friend....and the choice is yours.
