Michele Bachmann: "Miss Me Yet?" Billboard is "Innovative" Political Message

(AP)
CPAC Convention, Washington -- The curious "Miss Me Yet?" billboard, featuring a picture of former President George W. Bush, that appeared last month on the side of a highway in Minnesota is a lot more than a good joke, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said today at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Bachmann said the people who put up the billboard, who she said are her constituents, were "very creative, very innovative," and "got their dollars' worth out of this billboard."

She said the billboard was an example of how conservatives can "use your creativity, use your innovation… to take back Washington... one person at a time."

"These elections won't even be close if we take one person and make it our priority to utilize what we know is true," Bachmann said.

Conservatives are "in the middle of a political bull market," Bachmann added.
