Thank you for your thoughts Andy. I don’t know Mrs. Bachman personally enough to comment on her sincerity, but I can tell you that I often struggle with faith and politics in my role as a candidate. As Christians we are commanded to be the light of the world, yet I don’t want to give the impression that I’m using my faith for political gain. However, voters often ask me often about my faith.

Generally speaking, when one has “given themselves to Jesus”, it means that they’ve put every aspect of their lives towards devoting themselves to Jesus, dedicating themselves to his cause. Granted, while many preachers, deacons, etc have other career skills in order to earn a living, the objective is to utilize their talents to advance the word of God, not to use God to advance their own career. What we’re seeing here is someone claiming to have given herself to Jesus with an ad paid for by her own campaign for presidency.
But Bachmann is certainly no stranger to hypocrisy and asinine statements, even invoking God in Hurricane Irene in a way to coincidentally advance her political thought process.
If one had truly given themselves to Jesus, it would stand to reason that they’d be more incline to feed the poor instead of coddling the wealthy. I do recall many passages that pertains to that. And while Bachmann adamantly claims to be against any and all social programs, assistance, and government subsidies, it’s actually disturbing that she and her husband have cashed in big time on farm and business subsidies. It’s as if she’s against them unless of course, she happens to be the recipient.
And here we have a woman that just last night, claimed she wanted to eliminate ALL TAXES from EVERYONE. She said everyone should be able to keep every dollar they make. Period. So, there goes police protection, schools, and even roads or highways. And yet, we have a sitting state senator promoting her using Jesus as a sales pitch to promote her presidential bid. With Bachmann’s long history of abject ignorance and silly comments, it’s questionable that she even knows what she’s talking about. One would think that Sen Bryant should know better. But with recent unhinged and dishonest blog entries (such as Georgia Arms among others), that’s becoming more questionable by the day.
