Bachmann and Pawlenty Tangle in Iowa Debate

Former Governor of Minnesota Tim Pawlenty and current Representative of Minnesota continued to feud in tonight’s Republican primary debate in Iowa.

Pawlenty attacked Bachmann’s record and lack of leadership experience. He said that despite her strong conservative views and stances she was entirely unsuccessful in stopping the Obama agenda.

Bachmann fired back at Pawlenty by saying, “Governor, when you were governor in Minnesota, you implemented cap and trade in our state, and you praised the unconstitutional individual mandate, and you called for requiring all people in our state to purchase health insurance that government would mandate.”

Bachmann then pulled out the dirtiest word that can be used in this year’s Republican primary debates: Barack Obama.

She said about Pawlenty, “You said the era of small government was over. That sounds a lot more like Barack Obama if you ask me.”

Addressing the criticism on her record in Congress Bachmann said, “I have a very consistent record of fighting very hard against Barack Obama and his unconstitutional measures in Congress. I am very proud of that record.”
