Skip to comments.Bachmann Staffer Likens Rick Perry to King Saul and Bachmann to anointed King David
Posted on 08/18/2011 6:51:00 PM PDT by Fred
Peter Waldron, a staffer involved in Michele Bachmanns faith outreach, has compared Texas Governor Rick Perry to Old Testament King Saul and Bachmann to King David. On his Facebook page the day after Bachmanns straw poll victory in Iowa on Saturday, Waldron wrote, "From afar and in prayer I see a Saul and David scenario between Perry and Bachmann. One looks everything like a king while the other is anointed." Waldron later told his followers that Bachmann "fights with the anointing of God upon her."
The visibility of veteran GOP political organizer Waldron has risen a good bit since The Atlantic broke a story yesterday about Waldrons 2006 detention in Uganda on allegations of illegal gun possession. According to an upcoming movie about Waldrons life, President George W. Bush called Ugandan President Yowari Museveni to secure Waldrons release after 37 days in prison. In a video interview conducted by Hermann and Sharron Bailey, Waldron said that Museveni and wife Janet maintain a "death squad" used to "bring opponents in line." Waldron also says that Mrs. Museveni is an evangelical Christian and that he considers the Musevenis friends, even now.

My biggest problem with Bachmann is the fact that she IS a sitting member of congress not an executive. Sitting members of congress have ALWAYS made bad presidents!
Say what she may about perry or anyone else, but as far as I’m concerned her her status as a sitting congressman is 2 strikes against her.
At this point I’m undecided between the two, but obtuse allusions like this are just going to alienate conservatives. The left is begging for lines like this so that they can point and say, “See!? Look what a bunch of whacked out Christian fundamentalists they are.”
I like her overall direction but she gets a little whacky sometimes..but that may be good, she could go off on opponents and claim temporary weirdness...
I would like to see a candidate with solid business experience or a governor at least who has been responsible for a large economy..
We so desperately need a large change, who will do it?
I was drawn to Michelle Bachmann,shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
however as these staffers expose
themselves as Dominionists
I'm becoming very mistrustful.
well one could aspire to emulate worse personalities..
Considering the fact that St Rick is just one more lying scumbag RINO, I’d say they went easy on him.
Run Sarah, run!!!
The more the merrier as far as I’m concerned. At least Palin has a record her supporters don’t have to try to hide.
I had more respect for Mrs Bachmann than this type of 1st grader snipping.
My sentiments exactly!
Come to Texas and check us out, we’re busy.
Every day that goes by, I am liking Bachmann less and less.
Yesterday she was promising $2 gas. Today she’s King David. Tomorrow??
I just can’t figure out if Rollins is working for Obama or Romney.

Bathsheba, you in trouble girl!
Speak English, I speak only German, English and Haida.
It gives the opponent something to drag out and say “see, this is the kind of stuff” yada, yada, yada.
Unnecessary, unproductive and undermining of MB’s run if the left sees an open door to bring her, the Tea Party, the GOP, etc down.
A bit over the top....over enough to ruin a bunch of stuff we don't want ruined!
“...who will do it?”
Spartacus...and we are all Spartacus.
Is this guy a plant???
He’s saying EXACTLY the kinds of things that will hurt these two candidates, exactly the kind of thing , to continue the parallels, that will be quoted from here to
“Kingdom Come” by the MSM and the Bambi Administration strategists and spin doctors. Someone should tell him to keep his damn fool mouth shut—these kind of statements would be an embarrassment to even some evangelicals.
Well yeee hawww.....kind of like Wayne’s world and a blend of the peoples court...hehehehehehe...
Well yea you are right, but since I am not running for pres I need to know, who has the nerve to kick this pig...
May YHvH bless you and yours. shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
Why do I suspect the author is going for a twofer and will soon report that the anointed one already sits in Washington when he’s not at Maratha’s Vineyard.

OH Good Lord!!! Put a sock in it Peter!
So Bachmann is King David,Allen West is Harriet Tubbman and Obama...well who he thinks he is changes daily. Right now it’s Abraham Lincoln.
Will these people please SHUT UP already.
So far, I’m not excited by any of them!
Past "anointed" candidates include Presidents Bob Dole and John McCain.
Concerning Saul and David, they were both annointed.
One of the comments at the source URL was rather amusing:
This time around my money is on Goliath.

I could see a David and Goliath comparison, but David and Saul?
In that comparison, David is the “annointed one”, the one God had chosen to be king.
Saul had become corrupt (in both spirit and mind) and turned his back on God. Saul was the one standing in the way of God’s chosen one.
I know Bachmann understands the story behind David and Saul. It disturbs me that she would use that as a comparison between herself and any of the other GOP candidates. It takes a lot of ego to think of yourself as somehow being annointed to the task of president.
Bachmann did not make the analogy, a staffer did on his own fabebook page.
What is a Dominionist?
One who believes in Dominionism shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
