Bachmann: Rivals Are ‘Frugal Socialists’

by Katrina Trinko

CBS News reports on Michele Bachmann’s speech at the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., today:


The candidate had harsh words for her fellow opponents, whom she accused of being “frugal socialists.”

“We can’t preserve liberty for ourselves and our posterity if the choice in next November is between a frugal socialist and an out-of-control socialist,” Bachmann said. When a reporter asked her who she was referring to, she joked, “You see, that’s part of the puzzle that you figure out when I give the speech. Good try!” she said as the audience chuckled.
