Republican Michele Bachmann believes that praying to God can do wonders for her political party and may stop former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from winning the next presidential election.
Right-wing radio host Jan Markell asked Bachmann in an interview if she was among those people who assumed Clinton will be “coronated” as president in 2016.
“I don’t at all because I look at the story of David and Goliath,” Bachmann replied, according to Right Wing Watch. “All David needed was one smooth stone to fell the giant. It wasn’t the stone, it wasn’t David, it was the strong right arm of a Holy God.”
Bachmann underlined the merits of repenting ones sins in changing the outcome of the 2016 election.
“If we repent, if we cry out to God, we have no idea what the Lord God will do for us in 2016,” she said.
She also mentioned in the interview that the Republican Party doesn’t have ‘good technology’ to win elections.
This is not the first time Michele Bachmann has mentioned God in her while talking politics or other topics of a serious nature. In 2011, she was criticized for saying that Hurricane Irene was a sign from God. She later apologized and tried to convince people that her statement was made in jest.
This past May she reportedly she advised those who wished to repeal Obamacare, should turn to prayer - but sincerely. Because according to her the insincere ones may not have the desired effect. God bless america for politicians like her.
