St. Cloud Times gives Bachmann free pass
Q: Gov. Tim Pawlenty said on MSNBC that moderates need to fall in line with the conservative base of the Republican Party. Do you agree?
A: I think that he's accurate that they would do well to come over to the conservative position, because that is where the greatest percentage of Americans are today. After all, we have to remember we rule by the consent of the governed, and so it's important for us to be where the people are, and people don't like this idea of big government and they don't like spending more money than we have.
