Bachmann promised the crowd there would be "no teleprompters in the Bachmann White House." She also pointed out that there are no "czars" on her campaign bus. The president appointed four "czars" to the White House, handling health care, climate change, the auto industry and urban affairs.
The Mineesota congresswoman also riffed on Obama's 2008 campaign, telling the crowd people are ready for "real hope and real change."
