Bachmann: GOP Rivals Appear 'Frugal Socialists'

Monday, 07 Nov 2011 01:34 PM


WASHINGTON (AP) — GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann says too many Republicans aspire to be "frugal socialists" and the party can't afford a nominee who isn't a rock-solid conservative.

Bachmann said Monday that some of her GOP rivals were "confused" on such issues as abortion and gay rights. She refused to give names when asked which candidates she was criticizing as "frugal socialists." She said it's up to reporters to figure that out.

The Minnesota congresswoman was, however, direct in her criticism of President Barack Obama. She says his foreign policy is misguided and run by "General Axelrod, who is located in Chicago." That was a reference to Obama adviser David Axelrod.

Bachmann is reaching out to social conservatives who have great influence in the process of choosing a nominee.
