It's up governor Pawlenty and congresswoman Bachmann -- you both know there's an expression.
Minnesota nice and some people believe that both of you have tested it in recent ways.
Governor Pawlenty used say that there are represented -- Bachmann has no accomplishments and congress.
-- questioned her ability to serve as president because of her history of migraines.
Is -- unqualified.
Her -- just beating you in the polls.
About -- -- correct you I have not question congresswoman Bachmann is migraine headaches I don't think that's an issue.
The only had -- -- I hear about on the campaign trail is that headache Barack Obama.
Has given the people of this country with -- lousy leadership in this lousy economy.
Congresswoman -- record look she's done wonderful things in her life absolutely wonderful things but it's an -- just be able fact that in congress.
Her record of accomplishment and results.
Is nonexistent that's not gonna be good enough for our candidate for president of United States that's second to be good enough for the -- -- the United States to serve in that capacity.
The American people are -- -- expect more in demand more.
And in fact we need somebody -- contrast with Barack Obama on results if you go to my record in Minnesota you'll see government spending went from historic -- To historic lows we appointed conservative justices transform the court in -- conservative direction.
We -- Health Care Reform the right way no mandates individually no government takeovers and more that's the kind of record we're gonna need to -- -- contrast and beat.
Congress congresswoman Bachmann I'm gonna ask you at a moment -- own question about that governor -- but I wanna give you an opportunity to respond to his comments have thirty seconds.
One that you have no record of accomplishments in congress and to that there's -- something missing in your resonate because you do not have executive experience.
But thank you for asking the question I would say governor would you work governor in Minnesota you implement a cap and trade in our state and you praised the unconstitutional.
And you called for requiring all people on our state to purchase health insurance -- government would mandate third.
You said the era of small government was over.
That sounds a lot more like Barack Obama if He asked me during my time.
During my time in the United States congress I have thought all of these hung constitutional.
Measures as well as Barack Obama and I lead against increase in the debt ceiling the last two months.
I just wanted to pick up and in fact you anticipated the question I was gonna ask you and then I'm gonna give you a chance to respond governor.
Congresswoman Bachmann isn't that about the worst thing you can say about a fellow Republican in this campaign that He reminds you Barack Obama.
That the policies of the governor advocated for her cap and trade heap praise and wanted to require minnesotans.
-- to purchase the unconstitutional.
Individual mandate and health care and He said the era of small government is over.
I have a very consistent record.
Of fighting very hard against Barack Obama and his unconstitutional.
Measure some in congress.
I'm very proud of that record that is what qualifies me as a fighter and representative of the people.
To go to Washington DC into the White House people are looking for a champion.
They want someone who's been fighting when it came to health care I brought tens of thousands of Americans to Washington.
To fight the unconstitutional.
Individual mandate I didn't praising.
When it came to cap and trade I thought it was everything that was in -- including I introduce the lightbulb freedom of choice that so people that all purchased lightbulb of their choice.
I also believe.
I also believe that big government is hurting do you states we need to have small government.
-- and I'm sure you've been waiting for the opportunity governor allowed a thirty seconds to respond but really surprising congresswoman Bachmann would say those things that's not the kinds of things she said when I was governor of the state of Minnesota.
And moreover she's got a record of misstating and making false statements and that's another example of that list she says that she's fighting for these things she fought former.
Less government spending we got a lot more she led the effort against obamacare we got obamacare she led the effort against -- we got -- She said she's got a titanium spine it's not her spine were worried about it's her record of results if that's here.
View of effective leadership with results please stop because you're killing us I.
Congressman -- thirty seconds in his line.
Thank you so much I was at the tip of the -- fighting against the implementation of obamacare and the United States congress.
Nancy Pelosi Harry Reid and Barack Obama ran congress but I gave them a run for their money again I'm cap and trade I was there from the very beginning.
Giving speaker Pelosi a run for money that's why I was speaker Pelosi about her number one target.
To defeat last year because I was effectively taking them on on nearly every argument they put forward.
Others ran -- -- and I lead against increasing the depth.
