Michele Bachmann Delivers Caucus-Day Speech to Iowa High School Students

Bachmann Official Headshot Michele Bachmann has been known for doing some strange things. However, one thing she just did is quite different from her usual antics…and from what the other candidates are doing in order to promote themselves. She delivered her first live caucus-day speech to a group of 800 students at West Des Moines’ Valley High School in Iowa.

Instead of talking about her usual subjects – including her dream of repealing the health care reform law – Bachmann discussed the important role that students can have in the election process and ways they can become leaders and innovators in the future.

“What the next generation needs is innovation,” Bachmann said. “They need opportunities.”

Of course, Bachmann did have to promote herself as a presidential candidate a little bit, but I think she did so in a good way. She promoted her tax plan and told students that it would make it easier to help them find jobs in the future by lowering the cost of conducting business in the USA. She also talked about her own youth, growing up the daughter of a single mother in Iowa. This would help students relate to her and was a good move on her part, in my opinion.

Presidential Candidates’ Stances on Evolution and Intelligent Design

It’s a sticky subject for many people in the world: was the Earth and the animals on it created by a higher power or is evolution really behind it all? Many scientists believe that is evolution, which is considered to be “the most basic and universally accepted tenets of science.” However, what would happen if the leader of our nation didn’t believe in evolution? Would we stop teaching this science principle in schools? Would we fall even farther behind other countries in the STEM subject areas? Well, nobody can say for sure what would happen, but maybe we should take a look at the opinions of the 2012 Presidential Candidates on this subject.

Mitt Romney believes in both evolution and intelligent design. In 2007, he said that he believed that God created the universe, but God also “used the process of evolution to create the human body.”

Rick Perry has said on several occasions that he thinks that evolution is just “a theory that’s out there” with “some gaps.” Recently, he even told a child in New Hampshire this belief. This makes me think that Perry would make a move to change the curriculum in schools concerning this controversial issue.
