I agree with your post.
I can only add that Bachmann is too reckless and arrogant to do the bidding for Mitt.
But Mitt doesn’t have to ask for her assistance anyway:
She’s an overly-aggressive opportunist with clydesdale-sized blinders and will help Mitt simply by pulling Perry under water with her in some kind of wild, loser-take-all, ex-girlfrind, political suicide pact once she realizes that she no longer has any shot at the Title.
We don’t agree on Michele Bachmann...in this sense.
I’m focused on what she brought to the Tea Party Movement. And how she brought that into the Halls of Congress and into the living rooms of Americans.
She staked out a very consistent, very conservative, pro-Tea Party position on Federal Government financial issues. She has had great influence, because she represents many grass roots activists, in pulling Republicans in the little people’s direction.
For that she gets my permanent thanks and admiration.
The things you castigate her for supposedly being or doing seem like personal judgements on her, and I don’t go there. That’s not where I’m focused. I don’t know her heart.
I do know she has accomplished great political good, and it has nothing to do with her running for President, it has to do with her grass roots activism and the positions she’s advocated in Congress.
We do agree she isn’t a stalking horse for Romney or anyone else.
