She's not running for President; she's running for Vice-President. Romney's vice president, to be exact.
Bachmann hasn't laid a finger on Romney yet, nor will she. She can't make it to the White House alone, but neither can some other folks in the race. She's the conservative beard, waiting to apply herself to Romney's smooth, boyish chin.
They're both powerful but fatally flawed candidates on their own. Romney is an experienced former governor, but he lacks right wing street cred. He needs a tough, popular, conservative wingman. Bachmann is a tough, popular conservative but a political lightweight. She needs an experienced governor who lacks right wing street cred. Together, they could team up and win.
They have their jobs to do. Mittens will raise the cash, hide from the base, and look Presidential to the independents. Michelle will throw red meat to the base and keep them fired up, even if it hurts her among independents. Once it's time, they'll snap together like Legos. It really couldn't be more obvious.
LOL Steel Wolf!
Look at my post #22 of this thread! I said the same thing as you only, as usual, you said it better! :)
And after reading post 22, take a look at my tag. I did indeed change it!
I’ve got a question for you and would like your insight.
Could Michele Bachmann pull out of the race at some point and still be on Mitt’s VP list or do you think she’ll need to stick it out longer than she could have otherwise?
Wow, interesting. I have not thought of Bachman as angling in that way. In that case, she deserves a lot of scorn.
