Bachmann butchers meat during Iowa factory tour

Presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) tried her hand as a butcher during a factory tour of a meat packing company in Iowa Tuesday.

"Is that right?" asked Bachmann about her technique as she cut through a slab of meat.

"That's perfect," responded Bachmann's host.

"You know I don't know if I told you, my grandfather owned a meat market here in Iowa, in northeastern Iowa. So, that was very common back then, every town had a meat market so you always saw them back then," said Bachmann.

Bachmann used the tour as an opportunity to highlight her concerns that over-abundance of government regulation is stifling businesses, reported CNN.
