Skip to comments.Bachmann: Why did I endorse Mitt Romney? Two words: Barack Obama
Posted on 05/04/2012 2:44:17 PM PDT by NoLibZone
REP. MICHELE BACHMANN, R-MINN./FORMER PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Good evening, Greta. Good to talk to you this evening. VAN SUSTEREN: All right, well, things certainly have changed. So I know that it's no surprise that this candidate -- that this next phase of the election gets rolled out, you are going to see every sound bite you ever made saying something about Governor Romney. You're going to have to answer to it. It's going to be in every ad. And you're going to do it to the other side.
So tell me, you called him a frugal socialist. Now what are you going to do? How do you -- how do you support him now? BACHMANN: Well, of course I can support him. Two words, Barack Obama. That's our alternative. We have President Barack Obama or we can have President Mitt Romney. It's very easy for me to come forward and support Mitt Romney because we simply have to win the election. He is our nominee. This week, we saw Newt Gingrich drop out of the race. And what I've said from the very beginning, Greta, is that I want to be a unifying voice to bring our party together at the right time. I've spent a long time working behind the scenes, trying to draw in people from the Tea Party, evangelicals, social conservatives. We all have to come together.

The future of our nation rests in the balance. If Romney pick a non-NBC such as Rubio we are finished and we will know that the constitution has been trashed. Yes we need to get rid of Obama, who isn’t even qualified to be POTUS. If you read the constitution on this subject there is one way to understand what the founders wanted. They say the the president has to be a natural born citizen and then they exempt themselves because their parents were not born here.
Poor Willard just can't get an endorsement from anyone can he.
This is going to be worse than "Who Gives a Sh!t '08".
I'm not sure how endorsing the candidate who is most like Barack Obama somehow solves the Barack Obama problem.

Romney is no good but to say he’s as bent on destroying this country as 0bama is stretching it.
Actually, that is four words, according to my calculation. But then, I attended a pubic skoole.
2) Where is the text about exempting themselves? That sounds great.
The only thing Mitt Romney has going for him is that he is not Barrack Obama. We missed a great opportunity in not having Newt as our President.
There Republican field is down to Ron Paul and Mitt Romney and Romney will be the nominee.
It's simple. As an elected Republican, Bachmann knows it's down to Romney or Obama in November.
Delusional people will reach other conclusions... that this is the year of the 3rd party, etc.
This whole deal pisses me off again! Can’t stand Mitt, but I will pull the lever for him. Jeeze! Lesser of two evils again. But I want zero OUT! I want his Cabinet OUT! I want his czars OUT! I do not want him picking Supreme Court Nominees! I pray we retain the House, and regain the Senate. That would put some restraints on Mittens, if elected. I just see a vote for a write-in candidate, who has no chance of winning, as a vote for zero. Really ticks me off,,,,BUT I WANT ZERO OUT!
Romney sucks bad. Only 0bambi is worse.
News at 11.
So you’re supporting Obama?
I agree with you, 100%!!! You are living in the real world, thank God!!!
Yes, and you apparently didn’t learn anything in school.
Anyone but Obama. Even if it means Romney.
I was first a Cain supporter, since he is much more private sector. Unfortunately he fumbled some foreign policy questions, but still, he would have been far better than Obama. And then there was the high tech lynching.
Gingrich - flawed, but if he would stick to his guns.....
We could survive four years of Romney. Four more years of Obama - hell, that could be longer if he morphs into another Mugabe.
Allen West has been in the House for only two years. Ideally I think he would need a few more years before going to a higher office, and West has honestly expressed the same view (the humility of a true soldier). But we are not in a perfect world - maybe West on the ticket. Maybe we would wind up getting a younger version of Darth Cheney.
If you think “Barack Obama” is four words then, yes, your pubic skoole education had the desired outcome.
Not supporting Øbama-lite/white, either.
I endorse only conservative values.
Mittens is not included.
Politicians keep putting party over principle
Conservatives should never be endorsing liberals, it does not advance conservatism at all. I won’t be able to trust their judgement again.
This is the year of the leftist vs leftist. I do not vote for leftists.
I won’t be voting for President this year.
There are two choices, thats it.
You buy a lot of bridges don’t you. Either that or get tossed off them.
I’m not voting for a GOP candidate selected by Democrats in a flawed ‘open primary’ system.
I disagree that patriots such as Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney are politicians that put party over principles.
Thank God, the God Santorum knows little about, that we have a strong fiscal conservative as a candidte. Those of you kissing up to Santorum ignired the truth that he was a Senate whhip while the republican spend llike democrats ANF he lost his senate race by 17%. We that know him well do not like the man. He is a fellow Penn State alum but I could never vote for a man who refused to fight for fiscal conservatism during 16 years in the senate.
My comments on Santorum’s religeous beliefs are based on the words that come from his mouth. I never once heard the words or spirit of my master Jesus Christ. He is so very judgemental, yet he has major deficiencies of hus own. Behind Obama, he was the 2nd most devisive candidate.
... perhaps the real reason is “my own future in the Republican party”
You are a Morgbot aren’t you?
“And if you think “two words barack obama” consists of two words, then you need to repeat the 1st grade of your exclusive private schools.”
You left out the colon, which kills your point.
“Thank God, the God Santorum knows little about, that we have a strong fiscal conservative as a candidte. “
Who? Ron Paul? Because Romney sure isn’t a fiscal conservative.
Goodwithagun: Why is Michelle Bachman no longer relevant? Two words, barack obama.
Here: two words: barack obama. Still four words, a colon and two quote marks.
n00b, you showed up in May to post crap like that??? so judgmental.
Unfortunately for you, Internet doesn’t come with a laugh track like TV, so most jokes just don’t register.
The spelling raises the question... “Is that you Restornu?”
Back from the Zot under an assumed identity??
If so, how’re you doing?
I think it is Resty, retreaded
I would add that his organization is also just as mean, nasty, and deceptive as the Chicago mob that props Obama up.
“Why did I endorse Mitt Romney? Two words: Barack Obama”
That *is* an endorsement.
Would you rather have a paper cut or be burned alive in boiling oil? You’d be very motivated to choose one over the other!
You will make a million
I like that!
Shouldn’t we be practical?
Romney, whoever he is and whatever positions he’s taken in the past, beat out several very spiffy competitors in the primaries. Voters did it. You say it was because of his organization? You say it was because of all the campaign money he spent?
Consider that it might also be because a sizeable number of voters like the guy and his positions, comparatively speaking.
The weapons I just spoke of worked in the primaries. They’ll be used in the general election. This sounds like a good thing if you want to defeat Obama.
Bachmann told us how we should think, namely, “he’s not Obama”. Romney’s the guy we need to win the election.
Or maybe it was because he ran a dirty campaign, someone torpedoed the other candidates with false accusations and the MSM and RNC gleefully supported it all.
This whole deal pisses me off again! Cant stand Mitt, but I will pull the lever for him. Jeeze! Lesser of two evils again. But I want zero OUT! I want his Cabinet OUT! I want his czars OUT! I do not want him picking Supreme Court Nominees! I pray we retain the House, and regain the Senate. That would put some restraints on Mittens, if elected.

Very well said!
If 0bama is re-elected, 0bama will go all out to finish us off.
I cannot see how anyone can equate Romney with the very evil Barack Hussein Obama.
which liberal/socialist is better for your family, one in his second term or one in his first?
Or one in their party or one in ours.
This is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan.
No votes for baby killers. Ever!
Vote for a FReeper:
“Dammit! They did it!
The Bastards, they did it!
Dammit all to Heeeeeeeeeeeellllllllllllll!”
