To Michele Bachmann: How could you do this to us? (Where are your Principles?)
Mordant | Monday March 29, 2010 | Justin Case

Posted on 03/29/2010 8:08:15 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

Dear Mrs. Bachmann

You once said to your many supporters about the then propose Health Care bill that "This cannot pass. What we have to do today is make a covenant, to slit our wrists, be blood brothers on this thing. This will not pass. We will do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn't pass."....You stood on principles back then but where is your principles now when you are inviting someone who certainly doesn't stand for the kind of principles you profess in to campaign for you? I'm talking about Sarah Louise Palin, that woman who sold her soul to John McCain, who is an enemy of America and the Tea Parties across this country by sliding up next to RINO's and CINO's alike.

SO Michele, I see that you want Mrs. Palin to come to a rally in St. Paul MN, on the 7th to help you out on your reelection bid. I've also heard that you even had your staff plan for months to get Palin up in your neck of the woods but more than that you desired a MN fundraiser also with her exclusively to raise money. SO THAT IS THE CRUX OF THE HOLD MATTER? YOU DESIRE MONEY! You would rather sell out your principles, YOUR CONSERVATIVE VALUES for a 'FEW DOLLARS MORE'? Shouldn't you owe yourself first to those who support you rather than one who opposes the very thing you claim you stand against?

There are plenty of truly bona fide conservative men and women across this money that can raise money for you, why would you go hand in hand with Palin one night but the next day claim you agree with the Tea Party movement as though nothing happen. We believed in you Michele but now you have polluted yourself and now more than ever we don't need that type to fight for us in D.C, we need true conservatives who stand on principles not stand for mere reelection principles....Shame on you Mrs. Bachmann, Shame on you!

I’m frustrated with Sarah, too, but don’t take this out on Michelle. There are few Republican women in higher office and to smear them together is not healthy or fair. There are times people can agree to disagree, and this is one of them.

Oh lay off Sarah. She was between a rock and a hard spot. The media would have trounced her if she had of snubbed the man who put her in the national spotlight in the first place.

Palin is the enemy. Now where have I heard THAT before? Oh yeah! From the usual suspects here!

Oh, and perhaps its time to toss JD himself under the bus:

Not even JD himself is going to fall for the usual 'Palin is the enemy' crap. Even HE gets it.

BLITZER: You know that Sarah Palin who was his running mate says she's going to support John McCain and try to get him that nomination instead of you. How do you feel about that?

HAYWORTH: Well, I think we all understand the impulse of gratitude in politics and obviously Senator McCain, one of the decisions I applaud him for was putting Sarah Palin on the ticket. I think it gave great excitement to the Republican base and I can understand why she's coming here. But what's interesting, Wolf, in the social media, as I understand it, there's a new page on Facebook, Sarah Palin fans for JD but in the final analysis, it's not Sarah Palin from Alaska, It's Sarah Boyd in Scottsdale and others like her. Arizonans will decide who will be the next senator from this great state.

And there's this gem from JD:

VIDEO:"I look forward to having Mrs. Palin's support following the primary on August 24th."

These people criticizing Sarah Palin know nothing about strategy.

The woman is brilliant. There is a purpose to everything she does.

Read her book and you will understand.

That’s as funny as this is from Hotair.

John Ziegler

Senator Palin?

Palin’s popularity in her adopted home state has been in steady decline ever since she was chosen as John McCain’s VP candidate. There are many reasons for this, many of which have nothing to do with her. I saw the extent of this erosion of support first-hand when we screened “Media Malpractice” in Anchorage last spring and it was why I asked Palin about resigning well before she “shocked” the world by doing so.
I also know that some people pretty close to her in Alaska who feel as if she has gone “Hollywood” (my words, not theirs) and that the “real” Sarah Palin may be on the verge of being lost forever. There is no doubt that a documentary of this type, which will bring enormous exposure and probably tourist income to Alaska will restore some of her “ice cred” and popularity there.
Why is this important? Well, it isn’t because of Alaska’s three electoral votes. It seems to me that at least part of what this path provides is the possibility of running for Alaska’s currently Democrat-held U.S. Senate seat in 2014. Under this scenario Palin leads the GOP to victory in 2010, immediately gets out of the way of the other contenders by announcing that, for the good of the team, she is not running for president, and then, after Obama wins reelection she declares herself for the Senate seat. This way she avoids an inevitable defeat and emerges tanned, rested and ready (and, in the minds of many people, more experienced/seasoned) to be the frontrunner for the 2016 nomination in a year that looks like a slam-dunk for Republicans.(excerpt)

Oh, please...these are the same old biddies who have been dogging her every step of the way. Although there are many men who hate to see a successful women, there are even more WOMEN who hate to see it.

Jealous hags from the frozen north.

They will not intimidate her.

doesn’t anyone get this? he put her on the national stage, she is repaying that. he is an american war veteran and hero, the woman has enormous respect and admiration for ANYONE who serves honorably in our military - especially someone who served in an unpopular war, spent years as a pow, and still bears the scars and continued to serve his country. she fought against the dems and repubs and corruption from both (equal opportunity ass-kicker, hello).
say what you will about john mccain, but for many yrs he was literally the only republican i could look at or had any respect for. i realized that i agreed with him way more than those uberleftist idiots that had infested my grandma’s democrat party. i have continued to move farther to the right and now...hot damn here i am, a strict constitutionalist conservative.
if it wasn’t for john mccain, america wouldn’t know sarah palin, and free republic would be madamemayhem free. i feel both of those things would be tragic, but that’s just me.

Hah! Thanks for the comic relief.

Bachmann and Palin are solid - rant, rave, and throw dust in the air all you want ... Both of these Americans have my support.
Sure, Mrs. Palin is supporting the dreaded McCain. Fine, she's got to do what she's got to do - this is one bitter drop in an ocean of good will. We all know why she has to support the old 'maverick' ... no sleep lost on that one.

Back in gradeschool this would be where the whiny crybaby gets mad at her friends for not following her every lead, for example, failing to join her releventless and rude taunting of JOhnnie, so she threatens to take her ball and go home because she feels betrayed.

Sarah has been on the national scene doing good things since August. Sarah spent one day with McNut.

I will judge her on all her efforts, and not just one wrong choice.

I used FR trolls and some supporters of other candidates who act like Sarah supporters OWN WORDS to see if they attack Michele Bachmann in the same fashion...of course they didn’t because it’s not about principles or conservatism its all about hating on Sarah.....period

Bachmann considers Sarah a friend, has Bachmann lost it? of course not...so don’t get so entangle with the Astro-trufing going on “these trolls and some RonBots” They don’t stand on any principles but hate
