(CNN) - She may have dropped her bid for the presidential nomination, but Michele Bachmann is still adamantly pushing her conservative credentials.
Asked by Bloomberg TV’s Al Hunt to name the most conservative candidate remaining in the 2012 race, Bachmann responded by plugging herself.

"I was. I was the perfect candidate," Bachmann said. "America had their chance with the perfect candidate. But any of our candidates are going to be acceptable to the American people. More than acceptable, because right now, if you look at the Gallup map that came out this week, President Obama is in big trouble all across the country."
Bachmann’s assertion that she was the prefect candidate ultimately comes too late – the Minnesota congresswoman dropped out of the 2012 GOP race in January after finishing sixth in Iowa, the state where she was born.
She announced last week that she would seek re-election for her seat in Congress.

Not even worth reporting.
Give it up honey...you're done.
Who cares what she says. If her MN district votes her in again we need to boycott travel to MN!
I thought she meant that she has the perfect family because it's so today starting with that husband of hers!
Good grief-please Minnesotans vote this woman out so we don't ever have to see her face or hear her voice again!!!
Apparently she was the only one who thought so. Good riddance.
She was. But the party of no principles will have to settle for Romney. Because winning Trumps Beliefs
It's amazing when you hear a statement that is self-defeating, proving itself wrong by simply being said.
O would some Power the gift to give us
To see ourselves as others see us!
It would from many a blunder free us,
And foolish notion:
What airs in dress and gait would leave us,
And even devotion!

So Michele, just look at at that way.
She just can't stop lying can she. Even to herself. Sad.
Vacuums are also perfect.
Perfect for a very red county in a very red state but not for the entire country
Bachmann, you have got to be kidding, right? Maybe in your own mind but you are so far away from what America needs right now that even the most conservative, off-the-wall fundamentalist Christians in Iowa rejected you. Go back to MN and think about representing ALL of the people there, not just your fans.
She's a legend in her own mind!
NOBODY is perfect. Not you, not I and most definitely not her.
Next she will be telling us she is the perfect human being and that is why God talks to her.
Too bad there were not enough perceptive voters voters to recognize "perfection" when they see it.
This "imperfect" GOP voter would cast his vote for Barack Obama before he would even think of casting it for Michele Bachmann.
It is encouraging that American voters, Republicans this time, saw through the nonsense and rejected her candidacy.
I liked her made some gaffe's but nothing earth shaking. I am really surprised the tea party didn't stand behind this woman. So much for equal opportunity.
What part of "remaining in the race" is too difficult for her, do you suppose?
as usual. republicans live in their own "perfect" little world. wake up gop, the 1950's are over.
Perfect? Perfectly crazy? She showed her self to be insane and completely dishonest in every way. She has to grip on reality what so ever.
Minnesota, please do all of us a big favor, and do not re-elect this clearly-perfect candidate to represent you.
For all her Christian values she sure is full of herself. I think she should sedate her ego.
Perfect for Obama to have a 2nd term. It's too bad she dropped out, she would have been massacred in any actual debate against Obama, and I would have loved to have seen that. Popcorn anyone?
The perfect conservative candidate......a true conservative with regards to everyone else but a welfare lover for her own purposes. She, and her family, take government handouts without any shame. She's a disgrace.
