Question Evolution, Says Pres. Candidate Bachmann

"I support intelligent design. What I support is putting all science on the table and then letting students decide. I don't think it's a good idea for government to come down on one side of scientific issue or another, when there is reasonable doubt on both sides."

Michele Bachmann expressed skepticism of evolution at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Friday.

Bachmann, riding high after a strong showing in the GOP debate in New Hampshire Monday night, was received by an adoring crowd at the RLC.

Bachmann used her speech to attack President Barack Obama's economic policies, telling the crowd that Obama "got a big F on his economic report card."

From "Bachmann: Schools should teach intelligent design" by Peter Hamby, CNN Political Reporter 6/17/11

Intelligent design suggests that the complexity of the universe cannot be explained by evolution alone, and must also be attributed to a creator or supernatural being.

Bachmann said educators should be granted the flexibility - and the money - to make curriculum decisions at the local level.

The federal government, she said, should "block grant all money currently that goes to the states back to the states, so that Louisiana can decide how they want to spend the money, which may in fact be different on how Minnesota spends its money."
