Michele Bachmann, August 6, 2008:
“This is their agenda,” Bachmann states bluntly. “I know it is hard to believe, it’s hard to fathom — but this is ‘mission accomplished’ for them,” she asserts. “They want Americans to take transit and move to the inner cities. They want Americans to move to the urban core, live in tenements, [and] take light rail to their government jobs. That’s their vision for America.”
El Tinklenberg campaign ad, October 21, 2008:
As Transportation Commissioner, El Tinklenberg… built our first light rail.
We’re coming for you, Michele. And we’re coming on light rail.
