After keeping a low profile in the wake of a closer than expected re-election showing,
it appears U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann is back to the high profile status that had won her attention for years.
The Republican's Saturday speech to CPAC had at least three inaccurate claims, according to fact checkers (see
here, here and here.)
She also dashed away from a CNN camera crew on Wednesday.
she topped off the week by saying that the federal health care overhaul, known as ObamaCare, needed to be repealed “before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens.”
None of that builds into the
head-down focus on local issues status she had fit earlier this year.
