Bachmann Raises Cain in Hard-Hitting Interview

Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, founder of the House Tea Party Caucus, called current GOP frontrunner Herman Cain “inconsistent” on key issues in a hard-hitting interview scheduled to air Monday with radio host Scott Hennen, reports.

“There ha[ve] been 10 instances in the last month where he’s changed his positions on significant issues,” Bachmann said, citing Cain’s fluid statements on abortion, a federal marriage amendment, and his own 9-9-9 plan.

“He said that 9-9-9 would be equitable and fair, then he changed it to ‘9-0-9’ after people called out his errors,” Bachmann continued, referring to Cain’s revision of his economic plan to exempt certain low-income individuals from paying federal income tax.

Bachmann also cited Cain’s recent foreign policy missteps as further proof that the Atlanta businessman is not fit to serve.

“He said that he would allow the terrorists to go out of Guantanamo Bay,” Bachmann said. “In other words he would release the terrorists. Then he changed his mind and said, ‘No.’”

The Minnesota congresswoman continued, “He just said this week that China was developing a nuclear weapon. They’ve had one for 47 years.”

“Everybody loves him,” Bachmann said. “Who doesn’t? He has a great personality. But, this is the leader of the free world that we’re talking about.”

With less than two months to go until the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses and lackluster polling numbers, this may be a preview of Bachmann’s strategy against her rivals at the front of the GOP pack.
