Michele Bachmann led off the Conservative Political Action Conference with a rousing speech sounding very much like a 2012 presidential candidate.

Bachmann fired the crowd up by talking about the importance of making President Barack Obama a one term president.

"This is when it counts... That's why all of our chips are on 2012...You're up for it. I'm in. You're in."

Bachmann also reminded the crowd that in New Hampshire the motto is, "Live free or die."

Using a phrase linked directly to New Hampshire, the home of the 'First in the Nation Presidential Primary' will be seen by many as a not so veiled hint at Bachmann's presidential aspirations.
