Former conservative US Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) was considering a run for US Senate in Minnesota to fill the seat of the disgraced, sexual predator and former US Senator Al Franken. Bachmann has never made a secret of her strong Christian faith, so it’s no surprise that before she made the decision to throw her hat in the ring, she announced that she would spend some time in prayer, asking for God’s guidance.
Right Wing Watch interviewed the former US Congresswoman to ask if she had decided to run for Franken’s former seat. The interviewer who already knew Bachmann had decided not to run for the Senate seat asked: “You’re not going to go back into the swamp?”
Bachmann explained: What I did is I did what I have done on every other time I thought about running: I just took it to the Lord in a very quiet way, I took it before the Lord, I prayed, I tried to have my ears open and hear what God was saying to me, and I considered it for quite a long time, from the very first day when Al Franken had announced his resignation from the US Senate, I went before the Lord. And it became very clear to me that I wasn’t hearing any from God.
Every time I’ve run for office, I’ve always prayed, because it’s a very big undertaking for me, and for my family.
Bachmann said: “I considered it for quite a long time. From the very first day when Al Franken had announced his resignation from the U.S. Senate, I went before the Lord and it became very clear to me that I wasn’t hearing any call from God to do this.”
I’ve always prayed and tried to seek out what God’s will for me would be, and each time before, I’ve had this inner sense that I’m supposed to do this, I’m supposed to run. It doesn’t mean a guarantee that I’ll win, all it means is that that’s what I sensed in my spirit, that God wanted me to run.
I just had no sense from the Lord that this is something that I should do right now, so I’m not going to do it. This would be a very big undertaking, to run for this office. And I would be delighted and happy to do it if I felt like that was what God was calling me to do, but I just don’t’ have a sense, and without that sense, I just can’t do it.”
Liberals took to Twitter to mercilessly mock the idea that Michelle Bachmann would turn to God to help her make the important decision about running for US Senate.
This guy, who calls himself “God” on Twitter, went as far as to fundraise online, so he could place billboards around Minnesota telling Michelle Bachmann that God was telling her “NO” and signing them “God”.
I know things seem dark right now, but hey, at least My billboard for Michele Bachmann will go up in St. Paul, Minnesota tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/AgTrVTala0

The Huffington Post reported: If she’s looking for a sign, she might want to check out the billboard in St. Paul, Minnesota, which appeared to be the result of a crowdfunding project from the satirical website thegoodlordabove.com.
This Twitter user “Happy #BlackHistoryMonth from the Resistance Zone” tweeted that Michelle Bachmann’s “sign from God” happened when a “*train full of @GOP members crashes into a garbage truck*”
This is liberal tolerance at its best. Suggesting that the horrible train accident that left a man who was driving a garbage truck dead, was a “sign from God” to Michelle Bachmann.
Michele Bachmann: "Should I run for Senate? Lord, please give me a sign."
*train full of @GOP members crashes into a garbage truck*

I’m pretty sure this isn’t how God would respond to Michelle Bachmann’s prayer, but nevertheless, here’s another liberal proving to everyone that liberalism is indeed a mental disorder:
Crazy Michele Bachmann, I think God Did Call her and told her "Get the fuck out of the Senate Race " So she is Not Running For Senate. https://t.co/4IM9h5F8Ra

“Lee Ann del Castillo” mocked Bachmann for turning to God:
Thanks for the heads up, John. I'd hoped Michele Bachmann had been lost to Azkaban or some Religious Fanatics' Ranch. Oh well…sad ghosts arise from the mist–waiting for God to Direct them –AWAY FROM PUBLIC OFFICE.

Michele Bachmann won't run for Al Franken's seat because God didn't answer her prayers.
He answered mine. Buh-Bye Michele.
Next up… Al Franken returns to the Senate!

“Jeb Sanford” said it was “Telling” that “leftists mocked that Michelle Bachmann prayed about whether she should run for Senate or not.”
