And she put an end to months of speculation about her presidential ambitions earlier this week during Monday evening's presidential debate Minnesota congresswoman.
Michelle Bachmann who'll join me in just a moment made a big announcement.
I filed today my paperwork.
To seek the office of the presidency of the United States today and -- very soon be making my formal announcements I -- -- to be -- emergency now.
Now the congresswoman then put -- -- performance in the debate that earned her rave reviews in fact many are calling her Monday night's big winner here's a taste of which you brought to the stage.
This election will be about economics.
It will be about how do we create jobs how -- we turn the economy around how -- we -- pro growth economy that's a great story for Republicans to tell.
Can't tell that story his report card right now has a big failing grade on it.
And joining me now is Minnesota congresswoman and GOP presidential candidate for the first time as a candidate Michelle Bachmann congress -- -- welcome back.
Thank you so much -- always a -- to be with you all right I'm sure you saw that some holy USA today and there you are top folds picture.
And the headline.
-- -- emerges as a player in the GOP race what do you make of that.
What I make it bad -- that that inroads that people made in the halls of congress when they wanted to get politicians' attention.
Is now being heard across the nation and my goal -- quite frankly going to the White House.
-- to take that voice that's been heard now in the halls of congress to the White House.
And I think it's time to do that because it's been a very long time since their voices been heard there yet.
Congresswoman let me ask you we just played President Obama.
You know mentioning -- shovel ready jobs weren't as ready as we thought and the people around him laughing.
I don't think -- You know something what about.
We have nine point 1% unemployment if we include real unemployment it's much higher than that his policies have failed every metric is losing in the polls -- -- jokes.
That is you know trillion dollar stimulus failed what did you make of that what.
It is an admission of failure shot on the present United States says that -- shovel ready projects weren't exactly shovel ready that's an admission of failure just like.
You'd mentioned the president said that it was a bump in the road to have nine point 1% unemployment that isn't a bump on the road.
That's -- Grand Canyon in the middle of the road and then with the recent story came out that the president hasn't even sat down and met with his economic advisors.
I think what this shows is that the president has taken his eye off of the number one issue a Paramount concern to the American people.
That's turning the economy around and having American pro job growth creation he's failed -- on and that's why it firmly believe he'll be a one term president.
And it's why I want to bring my background -- a job creator and also as a tax lawyer.
To the White House you know it almost seems that -- I guess.
