This morning on American Morning, Rep. Michele Bachmann spoke with Kiran Chetry to talk about running for President in 2012.
One thing Bachmann addressed in the interview was her past gaffes, and pointed to her achievements as something voters can trust.
“People can make mistakes and I wish I could be perfect every time I say something, but I can’t,” Bachmann said on CNN’s “American Morning.” “But one thing people know about me is that I’m a substantive, serious person and I have a strong background.”
Bachmann was recently criticized for mistaking actor John Wayne's birth place.
"The main point I was making are the sensibilities of John Wayne, which is patriotism, love of country, standing up for our nation, that positive enthusiasm is what America’s all about,” Bachmann said.

"Every day that goes by, I think less and less that he was born in the United States," Trump said on American Morning. "He possibly was, but I want to get rid of the word 'possibly.'"
