This could be some of the early shots in the contest for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination.
On Tuesdays Kilmeade and Friends on the Fox News Radio network, former Huckabee campaign manager Ed Rollins, who signed up with potential presidential candidate Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann on Monday, explained why he decided to join the Bachmann camp.
Well Im going to work for Michele Bachmann if she runs, Rollins said. Thats the one that intrigues me the most at this point and I think to a certain extent shes articulate, shes a conservative. Shes got a great story to tell. Shes on the Intelligence Committee. You know, shes unknown to the national audience, but shell become known and thats the candidacy that Im going to work for if she runs.
But Rollins, with his own history of playing offense in presidential campaigns, took a few shots at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who could be a potential rival for Bachmann.
Sarah has not been serious over the last couple of years, Rollins said. She got the vice-presidential thing handed to her. She didnt go to work in the sense of trying gain more substance. She gave up her governorship. You know, I think Michele Bachmann and others have worked hard. She has been a leader of the Tea Party, which is a very important element here. Shes an attorney, done extraordinary things with family values and what have you. So I think she will connect. Shes a great, great communicator and I would say in the race right [now] today, she is probably the best communicator.

How many will actually bother to look up Bachmann’s number, and tell her Ed’s remarks about Governor Palin, are not the way to go???
Ok Bachmann... test number one... fire him or else... you are already on probation.
Ed Rollins is a smart guy but he has a dumb mouth. He spouts off like this and then later is either fired or has to back track.
Bachmann made a huge mistake by adding this RINO jerkoff to his campaign. AFAIC she is not a serious conservative candidate now, and I was more than willing to give her serious consideration.
Pubbie Elitists, if they are smart had better back off the backstabbing of Palin, it won’t work and will make her stronger.
But they probably won’t back off, no one ever said they were very smart. hee hee hee
Bachmann obviously didn’t lay down any ground rules. She better reign in her loose cannon.
The political establishment, regardless of party, is what has put us in the mess we are in today.
The political establishment, regardless of party, really hates Sarah.
Something can be gleaned from this, I believe.
Damn the professional “handlers” they are amoral and part of the reason the nation is in dire straits.
I’ll give him respect, in that he worked for President Ronald Reagan, and that he managed his campaigns......but my respect for him, has thinned a whole lot over the last few years.
So why leave the RINO (Romney) alone who is in the race now?
Bachmann hired Ed Rollins??? Hardly an auspicious start.
Rollins can kiss my ass.
The Republican version of Chris Lehane.
Here’s that number if anyone wants to call: (651) 260-4648.
Also, 651-731-5400 and 320-253-5931
You should send that to her people.
