Skip to comments.Bachmann Teas off against Mitt (Bachmann attacks Romney as "flip flopper")
Posted on 06/25/2011 10:56:55 PM PDT by rabscuttle385
Tea Party queen U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is touting her airtight conservative credentials in a veiled dig at GOP presidential nomination opponent Mitt Romney.
Bachmann, speaking via Skype.com to the National Right to Life Convention in Florida last week, didnt mention Romney by name, but it was obvious she was taking aim at him for his previous wavering on the abortion issue, the Huffington Post reports. The 2012 race is not the time for Republicans to put up a candidate who is weak on this issue and has a history of flip-flopping on this issue, she said.

Quite thinly veiled.
I have no problem with Michelle stating the truth. If that applies to Romney, then that is fine. Facts are hard to dispute.
Who are these jokers?
July will bring Sarah....and then, the road to reality.
Maybe she's been reading some of the posts here and decided that if she wants to win this election, she'd better start attacking the right people.
Has she apologized for having Ed Rollins call Sarah Palin stupid?
He didn't call her stupid. He said she wasn't a serious candidate. Bachmann did tell him to apologize.
IIRC he said that the choice was between an attractive woman who was smart and someone who was just attractive. The implication was that Sarah Palin was stupid.
Bachmann did tell him to apologize.
You got a link to that order? I must have missed that one.
The hiring of Ed Rollins was a stupid decision. She should have fired him.
No argument there.
She is in too liberal a state to run for Senate so this is her chance to move up.
So far the only person trashed by her campaign has been Sarah Palin.
Fair point so I'll rephrase to say that she won't trash any serious candidate by name.
“She is in too liberal a state to run for Senate...”
If she trashes Sarah Palin and Sarah Palin doesn't run, then Bachmann just lost the only person who could give her enough support to beat Romney.
Frankly I think it is Bachmann who is not the serious candidate. She is a candidate for Romney's VP slot. That is why she won't mention him by name.
If Palin doesn't run, she will most likely lend all her support to Perry. Bachmann may have burned the bridge to nowhere and she is stuck on the wrong side.
“The hiring of Ed Rollins was a stupid decision”
Is rocketing toward/into the lead generally a sign of a ‘stupid decision’ on campaign staffing?
If she gets any stupider she’ll be president.
She’s not going to win.
It’s going to come down to Romney and either Perry or Palin.
If neither Perry nor Palin runs, then it’s going to be Romney.
With all the guff that Sarah Palin has taken in her career in the limelight, being called stupid by Ed Rollins has to rank somewhere way up there between a single flea bite and a mildly stubbed toe. While hunting moose for dinner.
“Bachmann may have burned the bridge to nowhere”
Palin infamously flip-flopped on that bridge, as you will recall, and is now in favor of its non-existence.
They will. Right after Obama apologizes for Obama care. ;)
