If Michele Bachmann shows weakness, her critics will circle like sharks -- or psycho-sexual serial killers. (4:37)

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Stephen: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

VERY KIND.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WELCOME TO THE REPORT,

EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

THANK YOU, VERY KIND.

NATION --

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

I DON'T KNOW ACTUALLY -- THANK

YOU, PLEASE, PLEASE.

PLEASE -- I HAVE TO -- I DON'T

HONESTLY KNOW WHY I FIGHT YOU.

I LIKE IT MORE THAN TALKING.

NATION, AS AN AMERICAN, I DEMAND

CHOICE!

WHETHER IT'S 23 FLAVORS OF

PRINGLES OR EIGHT REPUBLICAN

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES.

I DEMAND NINE.

LET'S FIND OUT IF THAT GUY WITH

A MUSTACHE IS A REPUBLICAN.

BUT UNTIL SENATOR POTATO DUST

DECLARES MY FRONT RUNNER IS

MICHELE BACHMANN BECAUSE SHE IS

FULL OF SURPRISES.

SHE STUNNED EVERYONE WHEN DURING

THE FIRST PRESIDENT PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE

SHE ANNOUNCED SHE IS RUNNING FOR

PRESIDENT.

THEN SHE ASTONISHED EVERYONE

WHEN ON HER BACHMANN FOR

PRESIDENT WEB SITE SHE ANNOUNCES

BACHMANN FOR PRESIDENT.

BUT YESTERDAY, FOLK, CAME THE

GREATEST SHOCK OF ALL WHEN SHE

CONFIRMED WHAT THE TWO PREVIOUS

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS ONLY

OFFICIALLY HINTED AT.

>> IT'S SO GREAT TO BE HERE IN

IOWA AND EVEN BETTER TO BE HERE

IN WATERLOO WHERE I WAS BORN.

MY NAME IS MICHELE BACHMANN.

I STAND HERE IN THE MIDST OF

MANY FRIENDS AND MANY FAMILY

MEMBERS TO ANNOUNCE FORMALLY MY

CANDIDACY FOR PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES.

>> Stephen: SHE ANNOUNCED HER

CANDIDACY FROM WATERLOO, A NAME

SYNONYMOUS WITH VICTORY.

[LAUGHTER]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

SOMEBODY WON THAT BATTLE, RIGHT?

THIS FINE LADY WASTED NO TIME

BUTTERING UP THE PEOPLE OF IOWA,

NOT EASY BECAUSE I BELIEVE

IOWANS COME PRE-BUTTERED.

JIM?

>> I OFTEN SAY EVERYTHING I NEED

TO KNOW I LEARNED IN IOWA.

>> Stephen: REPUBLICAN, SHE

LEFT IOWA AT AGE 12 AND HAS HAD

THE COURAGE NOT TO LEARN

ANYTHING SINCE.

[LAUGHTER]

OF COURSE, SOME PEOPLE --

GOOD-LOOKING LADY.

SOME PEOPLE DON'T KNOW MICHELE

BACHMANN SO SHE TOLD FOX NEWS

EVERYTHING SHE WANTS US TO KNOW.

>> WHAT I WANT THEM TO KNOW IS

JUST LIKE JOHNWAY WAS FROM

WATERLAO, IOWA, THAT'S THE

SPIRIT I HAVE TOO.

>> Stephen: SHE HAS THE SPIRIT

OF JOHN WAYNE BUT THE CRITICS

COULDN'T WAIT TO IT IN PICK ON A

DETAIL.

>> JOHNWAY IS FROM IOWA BUT

THREE HOURS AWAY.

THERE'S A JOHN WAYNE FROM

WATERLOO BUT IT'S JOHN WAYNE

GACY.

>> Stephen: SEXUAL SERIAL

KILLER IS FROM WATERLOO BUT

THAT'S SEM MANTICS.

BACHMANN SAID SHE MISSPOKE.

THAT'S A BIG MISTAKE.

NO RETREAT, NOR IS ROUNDER.

-- SURRENDER.

IT'S DAY ONE.

DON'T SHOW WEAKNESS.

WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU

APOLOGIZING FOR.

ALL YOU SAID IS YOU HAVE THE

SAME SPIRIT AS JOHN WAYNE GACY

AND THERE'S SOMETHING TO THAT

BECAUSE LIKE GACY PEOPLE MIGHT

THINK YOU ARE A CLOWN BUT IF

THEY DIG A LITTLE DEEPER THEY'LL

FIND YOU ARE DEADLY SERIOUS.

COME ON, YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN.

YOU DON'T STUMBLE ON FACTS.

YOU DOUBLE DOWN.

IN THE ONLY DOLL YOU HAVE THE

SPIRIT OF JOHN WAYNE GACY,

YOU'VE GOT THE EYES OF A YOUNG

CHARLES MANSON.
