Bachmann: “Will the White House decide how many calories we consume or what types of food we consume?”

Via C-Span Archives:

Then-candidate Obama, Senator Obama, made the statement during the course of his campaign. He said, Americans can’t think that they can drive SUVs, set their thermostats at 72 degrees, or eat as much as food as they want, and think the rest the world will be okay with that.

Well, let’s take a look at the report card since President Obama has come into office. By taking over GM and Chrysler, what we’re seeing is the diminution of the SUV. We’re seeing a lot of these high-end vehicles now being phased out, and instead we’re seeing the new cars that the President wants to have put in place by Government Motors. That’s the SUV portion.

What about setting our house temperature at 72 degrees and buildings like this one at 72 degrees? Well, once we have the government effectively nationalizing energy, people won’t be able to afford to set their thermostats at 72 degrees. They will be sitting at home shivering at 55 degrees in winter, and in summer most likely won’t even be able to turn on the air-conditioning.

And what about food? President Obama said we can’t eat as much food as we want and think the rest of the world will be okay about that, as if that matters to freedom-loving Americans. Well, we just heard last week that the Federal Government now under the Obama administration is calling for a reordering of America’s food supply. What is that going to mean? Now will the White House decide how many calories we consume or what types of food we consume?

You’re from an agriculture State, I’m from an agriculture State. My farmers are very concerned about this. Our farmers are some of the greatest geniuses the world has ever seen. When you think of the percentage of farmers that we had in this country producing the food when the Nation first began, we’re now at less than 2 percent of our population produces all of the food that Americans consume. Not only that, a good portion of the world as well.

Bachmann concluded by saying that when she turneth her face towards the East, the Sun riseth over Minnesota, and the gold of her face doth overflow into the grain, and when she turneth to the West the Sun setteth, bringing biting ice and Jack Snatch’r o’ Breath. While the President would rather have her turneth towards the icy West, Bachmann promised to keep her sights firmly Eastward, towards our shared American future.
