Bachmann delivers Tea Party response to State of the Union

Washington (CNN) - Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, chair of the Tea Party Caucus in Congress, delivered a Tea Party-style, red-meat conservative rebuttal sharply criticizing President Barack Obama's State of the Union Tuesday.

Bachmann's remarks followed the official Republican response to the president by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, but the Minnesota Republican told CNN after the address that the Tea Party Express invited her to give a response the State of the Union last month, and denied that her response was meant to compete with Ryan's.

There is no firm date yet, though it could be held in the middle of January, a spokesman for the Express told CNN on Monday. One item the group is clear on is the event's goal.
