Making -- Barack Obama a want.
And that is the speech that is making headlines today inside the beltway and beyond Minnesota congresswoman Michelle Bachmann brought down my house when she opened up this year's C pac convention earlier today in DC -- And as you just heard it sounds like she can be very close to throwing her hat into the ring.
The 2012 presidential race what do bombshell that would be and so -- she really end.
We'll ask -- and joining me now from Washington is Minnesota congresswoman.
Things he shot -- back Fletcher you're up Europe for -- bomb in Europe it.
Well I meant for defeating Barack Obama in 2012.
I wasn't making an announcement today that I'm running for -- the United States.
We at 111000.
People at C -- over this weekend.
These are highly motivated excited people.
Who are all about defeating Barack Obama in 2012 because they really do want to take the country back and -- you talked about this.
How this is a two step program.
We were very successful.
-- it taking the house back in 2010.
Now it's about taking back the senate and the White House in 2012 if we can do that.
Then we can stop the out of control spending and the debt accumulation and more importantly we can repeal obamacare.
And the audience -- C -- is on board with that.
A lot of people interpreted those remarks to mean that you're -- -- you are considering.
Getting into the presidential race where you in the process.
Well will we haven't taken anything off the table are put anything on the table we've had people talk to us about that people they asked me to consider it.
And it's -- large decision that a person makes and so there's a lot of decisions that have to go and.
And we're weighing that carefully going forward so you really you you are seriously.
Considering a run for president to -- have a timeframe in which you you feel you need to make a decision.
Well I think there's an obvious timeframe when a person would have to make that decision I don't know if I need to be a candidate or not one thing that I have been doing.
Is traveling across the country and talking about the bigger issues that we need to focus on people need to be reminded.
Between that it in the next 24 months.
That we have to focus on the reality of the spending that's occurred and then also all of the programs that the presence took our -- -- into place.
Is it is there any one person that if they got into the race that would that would be your person -- support them -- that would prevent you from getting it.
Well let me say I think we have excellent candidates out there absolutely excellent candidates.
Someone will bubble up to the surface probably a year from now will know who that nominee will be.
I can't tell you that I've I've gotten behind any individual because I haven't.
I just want to be a part of this national patent narrative because I've been here -- on the front lines for the last four years.
I've seen up close and personal how devastating.
Speaker Pelosi Harry Reid and Barack Obama then as I just want to be a part of that.
At that time that a conversation.
So that we can let people know we can't forget.
How bad things aren't because we can make it -- -- I know you're limited and in terms of what you can say about -- if you are on House Intelligence Committee.
And but there are war a lot of public comments today so wanna ask you to comment beyond what is out there.
We know what the national intelligence director said about the -- of the the Muslim Brotherhood today.
And we know what Leon Panetta said publicly.
When when our own intelligence does -- recognize the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization within which it is.
It's -- I didn't deeply concerned about the people that are in charge of our national security.
Well I think everyone is seen while they're watching.
That casino brain age of people are seeing this is a very fluid situation.
And what we're seeing is a situation that.
Is a life.
Like plates that are moving in the -- written.
We see that there's a great eruption this is a very fragile region we don't know what will happen.
And beyond that I really can't comment as it as you know -- deal with classified information and it would be highly inappropriate for me.
To make a comment either confirming or denying any -- for me.
What we know what do that that the house James clapper said that the brotherhood was largely secular that just -- patently false.
And I know what I don't understand this you know I was just talking to Doug showed is going to be joining us a few minutes to clicks on Google.
And you know the Muslim Brotherhood is a rather radical organization.
Tied to Egyptian assassinations.
Tied to terror groups desiring an Islamic Khaled feet worldwide.
Including America and western countries.
And -- Sharia law.
What part of that doesn't our government understand that's what -- a hard time getting.
And is very important that we pay attention to the information that's out there but because of the highly classified position that I man I'm not in a position to either confirm or deny even information that's put out in the regular media.
All right so even even things that are well -- we're gonna get into that the next segment but congress so we'll look forward to your announcement congratulations on.
You're very well received speech today we appreciate it.
