Bachmann 'Very Seriously Looking Into' Romney Endorsement

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann stopped just short of endorsing Mitt Romney on Sunday, saying she was “very seriously looking into an endorsement.”

“I think we're seeing a uniting and a pulling together around our eventual nominee," she said on NBC’s Meet the Press. "And I have said that I want my voice to be one of uniting our party, the independents, the mainstream, conservatives, evangelicals, the tea party movement. I want to unite our party.”

The flaw with their plan, imho, is that there's never been a 'Tea Party' per se, nor any 'tea party leaders' with much, if any, significance.

Just millions and millions and millions of everyday patriotic Americans who are absolutely sick to death of being used and abused and taxed and inflated and nanny-stated 24/7/365.

All those millions - their votes and their righteous anger - won't be placated by anyone who haughtily presumes to rule subjects rather than lead his/her fellows.

The SPIRIT of the 'Tea Party' lives in the hearts and genes of all those in this nation who still value the ideals that motivated the Founders,
and try their best each day to raise their families and live their lives with integrity, in a land that's increasingly hostile to their efforts.

Until such time as the enemedia, the indoctrination factories, and those who've already sold their souls to corruption can claim to have extinguished its flame,
the spirit and fire of Liberty that they so rightly fear will always be alive out here, committed enemies to their treasonous usurpations.

I think that the tea party only gets stronger when opposed to this extent.

We know that we are winning when we make them whine! :)

Do it, and Backwoods Engineer will be "Very Seriously Looking Into" asking for his money back, Michele.

Let us know how that works out.

I’m surprised it has taken her this long. She ran cover for Romney so much in the primaries that I thought she was competing with Ann Coulter to become a sister-wife.

This is another gem you've been saying for months, and you're right again.

Rove, the GOP-E and the corrupt, cozy, cocktail Beltway crowd, hate the Tea Party, hate Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich and have gleefully supported Romney from the get go, because he's one of them and worse!

They smugly and arrogantly go on TV to state that we, the Tea Party have all but vanished, and that conservatives will rally 'round the GOP nominee bcause we "so despise Obama."

Well, not this time pals. We've been taken for granted one too many times.

Provided Romney buys himself the GOP-E nomination, without us, he can damn sure well buy himself the election without us too!

Oh, we will vote, all right. We will vote straight conservative up and down our ballots in all other races. Voter turn out by us is imperative!!

TEA Party patriots unite! Freedom is never free and it's messy.

Support and Vote for Newt now to try to stop the liar, liberal abortionist, pray and keep praying, and Trust in Him.

Please support Free Republic. Trust me, please, we need FR and one another NOW, more than ever.

EVERY donation, no matter the amount, is truly and greatly appreciated.

God bless and keep you all.

I hope she doesn’t do this...it would mean that she has given
up any hope of being her Own woman and has joined the establishment, which she professes to abhor!

I would be so disappointed....as would many others.

I never looked at it from that angle. That scenario makes sense and I can see every step the GOPE has taken to undermine and weaken the Tea Party to date. It further confirms that the GOPE and the Dims are one and the same and have nearly identical agendas - letting us believe there is a difference, in their minds, satisfies our need to rebel.

Michelle dear lady , it has to be Romney’s move not yours . Mitt is so sure of his annointing he’s already talking of going to the “center”. His center is our left.

Go ahead and do it Michele.. See how well it goes over with this voter in your district.

I hope they are promising you the speaker ship for your endorsement.

Not that it will matter when you loose.

I noticed that about Rove and the establishment in regards to Sarah Palin. They didn't quite know what to do with her. Along comes Newt who has an undisputable record as Speaker of the House and panic sets in ..who has been the target of the attacks? Newt.

We have to fight to the end for Newt...no white flags of surrender will be waved by the true patriots that vote with a conscience and an education. You are right Jim..a revolution is brewing and I have to applaud YOU, Marguerite, RitaOK, Windflier, Cincinatus'Wife, onyx, TrueBelieverForever, caww and others for the exemplary work you do

Rove, FOX News, The GOP-e, et al, are pushing so hard to nominate ... abortionist, statist/progressive Mitt Romney is to try to destroy the tea party.

So when are we going to get together and do an early-primary Tea Convention so we have ONE conservative candidate to run against the GOPe machine where we can beat them instead of having Bachman, Cain, Pawlenty, Perry, Santorum, and Newt splitting up all the Anti-Romney vote?

Does everyone forget the tit-for-tat sniping that went on at the beginning of the primaries? "You get out, NO YOU get out!" All Romney has had to do is just keep his head down while we chew each other up.

“Rove, the GOP-E and the corrupt, cozy, cocktail Beltway crowd, hate the Tea Party, hate Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich and have gleefully supported Romney from the get go, because he’s one of them and worse!”

(”Rove, the GOP-E and the corrupt, cozy, cocktail Beltway crowd, Heretofore known as “THEY”)

Agree, but supported him from the git-go with a running start as THEY already hated the true Conservative, and had battle plans to redefine the Conservative, and I think if we all sit back and think about, reflect upon it we’d all agree THEY tried to nullify the Conservative movement by trying to drive conservatives to a third Party thus into oblivion. THEY did try, and I’m certain I’m not the only one that remembers them trying.

THEY are still trying.

I agree, if Romney should some how pull this off it will be viewed as the end of the TP and its platform.

In the end though, I don't believe Romney will win.

Have you seen this?

King of Bain

I know what it is and the bs attached to it, but it is well done and it will destroy any chance of the mittster being elected.

Damn, I pray to God Gingrich can make a comeback.

The tea party is a threat to the RINO GOP/statist hold on power so must be destroyed.

Yup, totally agree.
The Rino/GOP-E figure a little useless power is better than no power at all and the hell with the country and conservatives.

As far as tea party leader, I have none and recognize none, but I am tea party.

Well it seems when a person has a career in the gop... that the slave masters do not allow independent thinking. I do not care... Palin has said that she will support the nominee... Bachmann has said so... Newt has said so... well LLS has vowed to never vote for that pos socialist baby killer and nothing that any of these professional political animals say or do will get me to vote for evil. That is their decision... my decision is mine... FU mitt romney!

LLS
