Michele Bachmann campaign manager Ed Rollins is stepping into an advisory role and deputy manager David Polyansky is leaving the campaign, Rollins said Monday.
Rollins, whos 68 and had a stroke a year and a half ago, cited health reasons for his decision.
"I just don't have the endurance to go 12 to 14 hours a day, seven days a week anymore," Rollins told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Monday.

Rollins said he still has great affection for Bachmann and pledged to give her counsel moving forward.
"At the end of the day, I'm not going away," Rollins said.....

Both Bachmann and Perry will be throwing all their support, and actively campaigning for Palin after the three quarter pole.
In one word:PALIN
I agree. Poor babies having tantrums because the ice cream isn’t cming fast enough.
That was one of the most pathetically whining posts that I’ve seen on FR.
I would much rather spend my time on gunwalker and the latest Obama atrocities than please your disappointments.I can support Palin and not be in a cliquey ping list.I can support Palin and ask about her speakers fees.Maybe someone will read this and post she didn't get one or donated it?Even if she got a fee,I don't care.The speaker's fee was a critical small part of my thinking before I watched the movie.Now it is trivial to what is going on in the big picture that is Palin. I get and respect her motives now now please stop judging mine.
Add Katherine Harris to Rollins' list of unacceptable female politicians. The pattern is clear.
It's a difficult word to spell but I think it fits Ed to a tee.
I’ll probably get some flak on this but I currently have no respect for either Party. The Democrats are fools that wish to turn us from the once greatest nation into a third world nation. The Republicans are basically about global corporatism who would prefer to turn us into a non-sovereign utopia for international corporate masters. I don’t care for either outcome.
Some might see this as a little extreme but that is the trend that I see. 2012 may end up as another election where we the people get tired of holding our nose, having no options, and no one comes out to vote. Perhaps that’s what the powers that be really want.
I'm not keen on choosing between a nice hair guy with an affection for open borders and a nice hair guy with an affection for socialized medicine.
Indeed, Ed Rollins certainly appears to characterize a misogynist. Even worse, he can't seem to keep his big trap shut after he quits these campaigns. I can't understand why anyone would hire this jerk knowing he has no respect for his clients or confidentiality. Rollins is worse than a whore.
Fair enough, my apologies, I will try harder!
This hiring casts more doubt, for me, on Michelle Bachmann's judgement than any other thing she has done.
We're fine. Life is good. Thanks for asking. Pray all is well with you guys.
“Watch the movie on PPV now it is worth the six dollars!” is all you need to say and link my review thread if you want.We are all on the same side I pray.
Cain is looking good.
P.S. Thank you for the apology I also apologize to you.
No, she's not a worth candidate, for the reasons many of us have been pointing out from the get-go. It's nothing to do with "conservative credentials", it's all about having no track record of executive experience and leadership -- it's far too important of a job to take those qualities on hope and
Bachmann has performed exactly as I expected -- temporarily up at the top as the "flavor of the month" and as a placeholder for better qualified candidates. I'm not sold on Perry, but you can see what his entrance into the race did to Bachmann. Her "support" collapsed overnight and she'll be lucky to have enough money to even make it to Iowa; in other words, her previous showing proved that she was indeed a "placeholder" candidate.
Potentially, I think he could be heard, but the election is 15 months away and I just don't see him getting the traction necessary to be competitive.
Sarah Palin would not carry Iowa either.
The Palin supporters spend so much time in an Echo Chamber of their own creation that they have totally lost touch with the rest of America.
I never supported Bachmann because I saw Bachmann as an extremely weak candidate (zero executive experience). Be that as it may, Bachmann actually got into the Arena. She got beat but, at least, she competed.
In the minds of the Palin supporters, the candidate in actual competition will never match the candidate in their imagination.
If you took all the girls I knew
When I was single
And brought them all together for one night
I know they'd never match
My sweet imagination
Whatever. You just keep on believing that rubbish.
>>Folks in SW Florida are getting a little tired of Sarah Palins campaign style, if that is what it’s considered.
More and more folks just want a candidate that wants to be President and not one that seems to be making a game out of what her intentions are.
If she runs I don’t think her ratings will be high in Florida. She would have been better declaring early, participating in the debates and being an official candidate in the Iowa Straw vote.
JMHO from a redneck from the Sate of Florida.
