(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.

She and Ron Paul could have been viable if they could have gotten out of the starting gate with upset wins. She stands her ground and that is a rare thing. It's the "you got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything" syndrome and tired old PC that has sent our country into undeniable decline.
The perfect candidate. unfortunately, about 90 percent of voters disagreed. never let the facts get in the way of delusion. oh well, time for crazy lady to go back to hassling gay people.
Well when a person looks at a recent poll showing Obama 6 points ahead of any other candidate, and then you hear that person say he is in serious trouble!?! I can understand how they think they were the perfect candidate. Follow the yellow brick road Michelle and ask for a brain when you arrive.
Did anyone actually want this woman to be in control of our nuclear weapons?
she is delusional!!! Luckily American do not like her or there will be a disaster ahead of this great nation.
The ONLY people Bachman was EVER the perfect candidate for were those who are PERFECT FOOLS just like her. Brainless, lacking any capability for reasoning and having NO solutions for anything except stupid meaningless lost pathetic principles only a FOOL could believe in.
She is absolutely right. She would have been the perfect candidate ... for "village 1d1ot" though, not president.
This isn't a surprise, she's crazy! What polls is she referring to? The fair & balanced ones on fox? Just go away! :( Obama 2012
How sad, as an 81 yr old lady she is a disgrace to all women. She was devious, had no knowledge when it comes to true facts. Michelle Bachmann receives government subsidies, yet she claimed to be anti government. What a hypocrite and liar. I have no clue as to what bible some of these read b/c it is not the HOLY BIBLE I read.
Very disturbed lady, I think she needs help.
Meanwhile, back at the WH the great and mighty obama and crew are continuing to take away our Constitutional rights and you bloggers are clueless!
Perfect for the country to run on fear, Sorry dingbat it didn't work. Rock Obama open the eyes of the American people on the greed and dissection of this retard party in this country. just remember my fellow Americans wars make the republican party rich. when democrats in power the world works as one. lets do lady liberty a big favor, lets vote these clowns out of office and yes take back AMERICA. for the people and by the people UNITE.
She is the perfect candidate... for a 21st century reincarnation of the "Know Nothing" party.
Maybe, on Brokeback Mountain you would have been the perfect candidate.
Yes and Hitler was the perfect dictator for the Germans too.
And all the time I thought it was Palin that was the perfect one, this could be a cat fight.
Will Bachmann's comments land her on Anderson's Ridiculist? That's where she belongs, for sure.
Please shut this troll up before I vomit. Apparently perfection isn't all it's cracked up to be
Meanwhile Obama is violating our First Amendment rights and destroying the country.
Glad she has such a high opinion of herself. Everyone needs to be loved by someone.
LOL, either her or Sarah Palin would make a perfect candidate, but I'm sure president Obama wouldn't like that (not enough challenge for him).
She will not be returned to Congress in November. End of story.
She has never and will never get the vote from my whole family. We know how conservative she is. How sneaky and underhanded she can be to force her brand of conservative radical religion into public and charter schools in Minnesota. She reminds me of Scott Walker of Wisconsin, lies to the people and then when he is elected he forces, FORCES his Agenda onto the people of that state. She is no different. You all know by now how she gets her facts wrong about history, politics etc.....she DOES have more than one screw loose in that head of hers.
OMG!!!!!!!! lmaoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo perfect for what!!!
Good Christian, conservative woman: Don't you know pride is one of the seven deadly sins believed to destroy the life of grace within you and thus create the threat of eternal damnation?
@Jeremy, she will not get my family's vote, no worries there!!! Hopefully she will not get another term!
