Bachmann says never 'a cross word' with Palin
Polutico ^ | Monday June 27, 2011 | MAGGIE HABERMAN

Posted on 06/27/2011 7:26:15 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

CBN's David Brody interview Michele Bachmann in Iowa tonight, where she insists she 'likes' Sarah Palin and downplays reports, including by POLITICO, about jockeying between the two women:

Brody: “Set the record straight with us on your relationship with Sarah Palin because the media wants to pit you, if not pit you against Sarah Palin they certainly want to compare you two. And I’m wondering how you see it specifically as it relates to Governor Palin.”

Bachmann: “I like her a lot. We’re friends. I have great admiration for her, great respect for her, and we’ve never had a cross word between us. We are friends. And I think that you’re right, I think that’s a fiction from the media. I doubt that the Governor feels that way, it certainly doesn’t reflect my view, and I only wish her well in what she’s doing right now.”

Bachmann's campaign contributions hit the skids when Rollins harpooned Palin.

I was sending $50 a month to Bachmann until Rollins made that stupid remark towards Palin.

Well sure. Thats why she hired hit man Rollins. To do the dirty work. Kinda like Perrys big business campaign donors throwing a wrench in the sanctuary cities bill. That way Rino Rick dosent look like the bad guy. Typical politics. Just what we need in the White House.

It does no good (in my mind) to now come out and 'say' "we are friends" and that there's never been a cross word between them.

Too late imo. Bachmann's heart and true intent surfaced the day she hired Rollins and refused to 'set the record straight'.

Barring that incident, Bachmann will not be an effective president. She is in over her head. She's nothing but a legislator and an attorney. Frankly, we've had enough of those.

We need someone on the side of the American People. Palin is it bar none.

Where WAS the public apology to Gov. Palin, Ms. Bachmann?

Well “cross words” doesn’t mean you don’t like or respect each other. If there ain’t some “cross words”, in my mind, you ain’t tryin’ hard enough.

Bachmann worked for Carter and the IRS,
and is vying to be VP to her “President Romney”.

Perhaps one should not expect too much.

I just posted this on another thread:

I'm sorry, but for her to not publicly bring him (Rollins) to the woodshed or fire him for doing what he did is just plain wrong. No ifs and or buts about it, she blew it from beginning to end on that one. If Palin runs, she'll steamroll Michele, if she doesn't, Palin's voters will make a big difference in why Michele will not be capable of winning the nomination.

Ok you Palin supporters...these are some of the people Sarah Governed in Alaska. Sent to me today....even the village people..and the dogs were a part of this...very touching. Just to lighten things up a bit....Enjoy..I did greatly!

“This is a video from the small Yupiq Eskimo Village of Quinhagak, Alaska. I think it is first rate and really gives a very fine picture of life in an Alaska Eskimo village.

This was a school computer project intended for the other Yupiq villages in the area. Much to the villages shock, over a quarter of a million people have already seen the video. “

Those things may be true but the bottom line is her current actions. She has shown herself to be nothing more than a ladder climber and to hell with the citizenry.

Her actions have spoken louder than any words she parrots.

She is not good for the Country. PERIOD.

Absolutely.
On FOX yesterday she called Romney, “President Romney”
and was corrected by Tingle-Wallace.

THAT is a leak from her subconscious because she
has been talking about “Pres. Romney” and the only
reason is that she sees herself as his VP.

When Sarah announces, MB will quickly fade away. The press will forget MB exists. They will go full bore after Sarah, but will continue to fail to bring her down.

Is it my women’s intuition or am I being overly critical? I interpreted MB’s comment “...and I only wish her well in what she’s doing right now.” to mean: Just keep doing what you’re doing, Sarah, but stay outta the Prez race!

Michelle Bachmann is Mitt Romney’s cocktail waitress.

That’s it. Period. Take that to the flippin’ bank.

She’ll do some mild critiques of Romney, but nothing serious. She SOOOOO wants to sit at the table with the Big People.

She betrayed Palin to get money to help her in the race with Kobluchar. That’s all she’s doing this for.

Not only that, Mitt’s people wouldn’t trust her to cross the street. If she turned on Palin for thirty pieces of silver, Romney’s people have to figure she’ll sell him out too.

Bachmann is toxic and she doesn’t even know it. Palin doesn’t really have to do a thing except watch for the air to start slowly going out of the Bachmann balloon. Someone, I think it might have been Brice’s Crossroads, posted a very trenchant piece comparing Bachmann to Phil Crane, who tried to torpedo Reagan in the 1980 election. Reagan never trusted Crane again.

Palin will give Bachmann the same treatment. Watch.

Best,

Chris

And do you notice how MB keeps saying now that she “has a titanium spine”?
Sarah always talked about politician needing that ‘steel’ spine. I don’t notice any other candidates talking about any kind of spine. IMO, Bachmann has cabbaged onto a lot of what Sarah has been saying for 3 years plus.

I tried my best today to get through on Levin (busy signal), but will continue to try both him and Rush this week to bring awareness to them that the attacks Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain are getting aren’t just coming from the left MSM or the “inside the Beltway conservative intelligencia”, but from supposed conservatives that are hell-bent on destroying whatever threat to their candidate stands in their way and rewriting history.

To those Palin supporters that feel it necessary to disparage and denigrate the other conservatives in the race, I challenge you to call Rush and Levin and state your case why you think these two individuals deserve to be called “RINO’s, “Stalking Horses”, “frauds”, etc. I’m sure if you state your case to Snerdley or Mr. Producer, you’ll get pushed to the front of the line on air. Of course, after they eat you alive and cut you off after you babble for the 5th time “But Rollins....”, you can then come back out here and accuse them of having Palin Derangement Syndrome as well.

Mark Levin had a good audio show tonight. I highly suggest you listen to it. Seems he has no problems still holding MB in high regards despite Ed Rollins. My guess is that he would tell you to “get over it”, then cut you off the air.

You are exactly right. Bachmann is Crane with less experience, less loyalty and more gaffes. And she is up against the best in Sarah Palin. The last two days have exposed her for just how small a bit player she is. When Palin announces, Bachmann will evaporate like a single raindrop on a New Orleans sidewalk in August.

Mark Levin ain’t gonna be able to drag Bachmann across the finish line. with her baggage and foot in mouth disease. He won’t even try. He is being evenhanded. That is all. If you find something he has said to disparage Palin or her supporters in any way, do please post it.

You won’t.

Something is missing here folks! I say BS to MB,pardon my French.

This whole blowup with Chris Wallace over the weekend? Chris has said worse of Gov Palin and never felt the need to apologize. True he was kind to Gov Palin a few weeks ago, but prior to that, he was asking people (with a smurk on his face) if Palin was qualified to be President...saying that all she cares about is making money.

AT ANY RATE...MB says it was not right to suggest that any candidate is not a serious person, as Wallace sort of suggested to MB. OK THEN, WHY HAVE YOU NOT APOLOGIZED,AND APOLOGIZED PUBLICLY TO GOV PALIN FOR ED ROLLINS REPEATED COMMENTS???

With friends like Bachmann, Sarah does not need enemies

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that Rollins presence on her campaign speaks of something so foul I'm hesitant to consider supporting her at all.

That one word 'now' caught my eye as well - just like last week's subtle 'the players are set' statement from her.

On the other hand, on Greta or FNS or whereever the week before, when the host asked Sarah about something including or with Michelle, Sarah rightly pointed out that Michelle lacked 'Executive Experience' - for which Sarah has. That's a difference with a distinction. Michelle tries to exclude Sarah and wants to elevate herself (i.e., bring herself up) to be included, whereas Sarah speaks honestly and also a. loves the competition - is not insecure about it, and b. in fact welcomes it as she has many times 'a little competition is a good thing in picking someone...'

Levin isn’t being even handed at all. He has gone on rants against Mitten and Huntsman and the rest of the weak Progressive Cuckolds running in the GOP. Newt included. His stated mission is to promote Conservatives. To that, I am grateful.

The job here is to shut down these unreliable hacks losers before they get to far along. I agree with Levin 100% on that. That is why he gives play to Cain, Bachmann and Santorum.

I think that it's safe to say that those of us who know Rollins' history see his hire as a gigantic turnoff...re Bachmann.

I had been willing to give her an open minded review and wait to see what was what, but she and her actions just keep getting worse and worse. Keeping Rollins on, that's a gigantic red flag awaving!

#1 - Sarah is not a Candidate (not yet at least)

#2 - Repeated? Rollins has been muzzled since the incident came out. What’s “repeated” is that many of the Palin supporters have taken Rollins statement to declare an all-out war on Bachmann.

#3 - What is Bachmann supposed to apologize for? Rollins gave his opinion of Palin and whether she would make a difference in the 2012 race. An opinion is just that...an opinion, even if it is a dumb one.

And ironically, back in January, Rollins also referred to Bachmann as “not a serious candidate” when he was still on the potential Huckabee team in an interview on CNN.
