Bachmann: God using natural disasters to prod politicians

Michele Bachmann, in Florida yesterday.

"I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?'

Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending."

UPDATE: A Bachmann spokeswoman says the comment was in jest.
