After weeks of ignoring attempts by Tim Pawlenty to draw her into a back-and-forth over their respective records, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann unloaded on her home state’s former governor Sunday — comparing his record to that of President Obama.

“Actions speak louder than words,” said Bachmann in a statement released by her campaign, taking Pawlenty to task over health care, the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and cap-and-trade legislation.
