Bachmann draws Thatcher foreign policy comparison
GOP candidate Bachmann invites comparison to Margaret Thatcher in foreign policy speech
By The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) ' Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is harkening back to a past woman world leader with firm resolve ' former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher ' as she tries to convince American veterans that she would make a strong commander in chief.

Bachmann shed led light Thursday on her foreign policy views in a speech to the American Legion's national convention, in her home state of Minnesota. President Barack Obama addressed the convention earlier in the week.

Bachmann says the world needs to know America has a "strong leader" like Thatcher and her contemporary President Ronald Reagan. She says it would show that the United States won't "conduct our foreign policy apologetically, such as leading from behind."

Bachmann emphasized her role on the House Intelligence Committee as evidence she knows pressing threats.
