What's with the hatred of Michele Bachmann at Free Republic?

Posted on 06/19/2011 1:04:04 PM PDT by EveningStar

What's with the hatred of Michele Bachmann at Free Republic lately?

I've seen some psychotic paranoid drivel about her secretly working for Mitt Romney, but apparently there's more to it than that.

Please help me out here, folks.

Her name is something other than Her Highness and Most Holy the Chosen Sarah Palin.

Why feign ignorance, in between trolling against Palin, haven’t you read about Bachmann hiring Ed Rollins and revealing a campaign strategy of attacking Governor Palin, and staying away from Mitt criticism?

"Sarah has not been serious over the last couple of years. She got the vice-presidential thing handed to her. She didn’t go to work in the sense of trying to gain more substance. She gave up her governorship"

That's Rollins speaking on behalf of the Bachmann campaign. No forgiveness ever.

What's with the false accusation against people who almost universally post the facts/logic as to why they are upset with Bachmann?

Why knowingly would you falsely and incorrectly label people who have been up front and honest with why they have a problem with Bachmann?

I’ve seen a few comments about her that wouldn’t be acceptable if they were said about Michelle Obama.

Its like the hatred the left feels for Sarah Palin has infected a few on the right.

You know how (many) people get. They choose a candidate to support, and then every other candidate, no matter how impressive/conservative, becomes the enemy in their minds. Yeah, it’s childish, but that’s the way it is.

I knew about Ed Rollins. Is Bachmann really attacking Gov. Palin? Very disappointing if that's the case, I know Rollins is anti Palin and he does work for MB, hoping she would get rid of him. Are you buying the rumors that she is a shill for Romney? Well, that would be big. (Man what a bunch of random thoughts here. Hope you can make out my train of thought.)

I'd be interested in seeing those posts, as so far, I haven't seen anything comparable to that, and I have been paying attention.

Can you post links to them?

Bachmann is not pure and if you are not pure you will not get the conservative vote.

John McCain was not pure, and we got Obama. History will repeat itself and we wil get four more years of government by fiat and leftwing federal judges who do not have t go through confirmation.

And then we will complain. Sorry, if the majority of voters vote for Bachmann in the primaries and she is our candidate, she gets my vote. My family will not survive another four years of this.

Heck we keep the house and take the senate and we put something in front of romney or Bachmann, or Santorum, or Cain, they will not veto it. No president with his partying power wants to be a land duck on January 21.

It has nothing to do with Michele Bachmann.

This type of thing happens every election cycle.

I think it's a commie plot to screw up our election system, something put in the water perhaps?

Freepers are vetting all the republican candidates based on the candidates’ conservative credentials and how they back them up with their words and actions.

We want the most conservative candidate this time around and we’re not fooling around with RINOs that pretend to be conservative just to woo us.

So the bar is high and we are approaching everyone cautiously.

In my case, I like Bachmann on paper, but the hiring of Ed Rollins made me back way off. That’s just a giant disconnect.

She DID give up the governorship...

So?

There were, almost daily and certaintly weekly, frivolous lawsuits being filed by Democrats against her that because of the laws of Alaska and ethical concerns she had to pay for the defense against.

They put her, and her family, over $500,000 in debt.

These lawsuits were so numerous that she and her staff had to spend over 80% of their time perparing and defending against these lawsuits.

She, and her staff could not do the state's business while spending all of that time to defend against those lawsuits.

So RockinRight, what were her options in your mind?

Should she have continued to have lawsuits filed against her that were effectively making her a non-Governor because of the time needed to prepare/defend against the lawsuits?

Should she have continued to rack up more and more debt that she had no way to pay for?

What would you have done RockinRight?

Michelle Bachmann is one of the rising stars in the conservative movement. Paranoid conspiracy theorists have portrayed her as a stooge for Mitt Romney, simply because she has not (yet) attacked Romney, but neither have any of the other candidates. Sarah Palin is great, but she is not yet in the race, and the other candidates cannot be told to stay in a holding pattern and avoid campaigning while she makes up her mind. Attack phonies like Romney, Gingrich, and Palin all you want, but do not attack fellow conservatives!

Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Palin will always carry the title of “Governor Palin”, unless she gains a higher title.

1. She's not Sarah Palin

2. She's not supposed to be running for president, Sarah Palin is.

Simple enough.

It's not hatred. We just don't like backstabbers. MB cut some kind of deal with the GOP-E over Christmas to help out with the Stop Sarah campaign. In January and February, members of her staff suddenly showed up in South Carolina and Iowa and started bad mouthing Sarah Palin to state and local GOP chairmen and leaders. And then she hired Ed Rollins to serve as her campaign manager. Rollins immediately attacked Palin, and MB did not refute or fire him. He silence spoke volumes. And then at last week's debate, she refused to attack Romney or Romneycare.

It doesn't take a genius to connect the dots here.

I like Michelle Bachmann and I agree with her about 90% of the time. I just don’t think she’s ready from primetime. I would listen to her on Mark Levin and she would come off as being whinney. This has changed since she has started to run for President. During the healthcare debate in 2010, she decided to fast. I have absolutely no problems with her religious beliefs whatsoever, I just did not think it was appropiate that she decided to do that at that time.

When she hired a guy like Ed Rollins who many said was a mistake to hire in the first place, they questioned her judgement, He then went after Palin and regardless how you feel about Palin, it’s a stupid move politically since the same type of supporters Bachmann wants and needs are also supporters of Palin whether she runs or not! And despite the political thinking of many on FR, if Palin gets in the race, it will be a gamechanger in that she will be the only one who financially, a loyal base and name recognition that can challenge Romney immediately, no offense to Cain, Pawlenty or anyone else.

The Bachmann supporters are getting panicky and it's showing. They kept telling us the MSM was going to destroy Palin, but look at the bus tour and email success.

Their stress levels are rising each day.

Really? I think just the opposite. It's Palin supporters that are going after Bachmann on this site.

Yeah the emails blew up in the MSM's face, but what was so successful about her bus tour. The country is going to hell and we're supposed to applaud Palin for jerking the media's chain for a week? What did the bus tour accomplish exactly?
