This is the second story about Team Romney looking for Bachmann to go after Perry for them.....I understand that Perry and Bachmann are going after the same type of voters for the most part but this feeds into the notion awhile back by some that Bachmann could be a stalking Horse for Mitt in some way
It only feeds into it if you totally ignore the most important factor...Michele Bachmann cannot be an unknowing, unwitting stalking horse. She is Romney’s opposite number and would not knowingly or wittingly be his stalking horse. That was true before Perry got in, that is true now.
Nobody can show the slightest evidence that this was ever anything but the fevered imagination of a few internet types who come on threads and spam, spam, spam against anyone other than Sarah Palin. Posting - as supposed evidence of this - a picture that has Michele Bachmann looking in the direction of Romney who is also in the picture, is laughable, childish and...well I won’t go on but I could.
Final point is, this idea that Romney hopes Michele Bachmann destroys Perry in a debate, therefore people turn to Romney when they weren’t for him before, is ludicrous because it isn’t going to happen. It’s a pipe dream.
