Michele Bachmann tries to capitalize on “The Iron Lady”

Margaret Thatcher has been all over the news as of late, thanks to the upcoming, Meryl Streep-starring biopic about the former British Prime Minister, The Iron Lady.

Hoping to capitalize on this renewed interest, Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has taken describing herself as America’s “Iron Lady.”

In addition to making the comparison between herself and fellow conservative Thatcher while on the campaign trail, the congresswoman has now released an ad in Iowa that places even greater emphasis on her Thatcher-esque qualities.

I find it interesting that commenting or rating the above video on Youtube has been disabled.

But while Margaret Thatcher was an effective lawmaker overseas, the Des Moines Register recently noted that Bachmann has hardly passed any legislation.
