Default Bachmann Launches Presidential Campaign, Says Nation 'Cannot Afford' Second Obama Term

Rep. Michele Bachmann, stressing her Iowa roots and appealing directly to Tea Party voters, came out swinging Monday as she formally launched her campaign for president.

Buoyed by a strong showing in several recent polls, the Minnesota congresswoman cast her campaign as the voice for "constitutional conservatives" looking for a government that lives within its means while giving the private sector the room to grow. She launched a broadside against President Obama for racking up too much debt while stimulating too little job growth and vowed to make him a "one-term president."

"We cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama," she declared, later adding: "We can win in 2012 and we will win."

Sure, some feel that way, but we'll be soon enough rid of him - on Inauguration Day, January 2017.

Two terms for you? Why not three? Or four? Or five?

Doesn't seem to be issue for this administration.

Obama can't define a war and Clinton didn't know the meaning of "is". And these are the people running this country.

Regarding term limits? Has Obama proposed a change to the two term limit? If so, I stand corrected, but I don't remember his doing that.

You beat me to it. Our grandkids aren't going to be able to dig us out of the whole this President has put us into.
