Let’s make sure that with everything within us, we lay it on the line in the next 50 days, because it is my belief and my opinion that Barack Obama has been the most dangerous president we have ever had on American foreign policy. And we cannot sustain another four years of Jimmy Carter-like policies, because you see, the future belongs where? All you need to do is look in front of you, look at your hands. I look at my own.
This is it. It is our hands that will determine the future. It is our hands that will determine if it is honor, duty, country. Now is ours. I believe we are worthy of the task, and nothing but the memory of the fallen should guide us.
God bless us now. God bless us in the future. God bless us in this important moment when we make our decision about the future of our nation. God bless us all, and in his mighty name we pray. We bless the United States of America.
—Rep. Michele Bachmann, discussing President Obama’s foreign policy and the current Middle East crisis, at the Values Voter Summit.
