Leaders of the religious right say it’s time to restore America to the constitutional principles that made it great and are lining up to endorse Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann for the Republican nomination for president michele,bachmann,president,2012,religious rightin 2012, the Minnesota Independent reports.

Some tout her as the next Ronald Reagan — with a twist. Religious leaders supporting her include Matt Barber of the late Jerry Fallwell’s Liberty Council, who said, “To date, no man has succeeded in filling the conservative standard-bearer’s legendary boots. Well, maybe it’s time to swap boots for pumps.”

Like Reagan, Barber added, Bachmann values principle over popularity.

“She has been a stalwart in advocating on behalf of constitutional conservatism. She’s chairwoman of the House Tea Party Caucus and has put her money where her mouth is, voting consistently in Congress to limit the size and scope of government, fortify national security and protect life, liberty and the natural family.”

Other religious right leaders who would like to see Bachmann eschew a potential Senate run for the White House include Larry Klayman, the former founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, who called Bachmann “the one truly principled politician who can unite conservatives, libertarians, independents, tea partiers, people of faith and any American who truly believes in constrained government, fiscal and individual responsibility, a strong national defense, life, and yes, freedom under God!”

Conservative Joseph Farah, founder of WorldNetDaily, said Bachmann exudes leadership more than anyone since Reagan. “She is a great communicator who knows what she believes in without equivocation, someone who knows how to stand up to the Beltway establishment and emerge unchanged by it,” Farah said.

“She’s evidently indifferent to what the moonbat media and the larger loony left think about her,” Barber added. “This is an indispensable quality in a leader ‘We the People’ can get behind. She’s a maverick’s maverick.”

Doug Sachtleben, a spokesman for Bachmann, said nothing’s off the table for the three-term tea party favorite. She will head to Iowa, an early presidential caucus state, this month to speak with GOP leaders before making a final decision on whether to mount a presidential run.
