White House political maestro Karl Rove urged money and other forms of support for Republican congressional candidate Michele Bachmann at a Stillwater fundraiser Friday.The Bachmann fundraiser at the Water Street Inn in Stillwater attracted about 60 supporters, who paid $250 for lunch. Couples who contributed $1,000 to Bachmann could have their pictures taken with Rove. The Bachmann campaign did not immediately release the total amount raised.

I hadn’t read this far when I commented.

I’d ask for my money back.

Created and owned by Rove. Managed by Ed Rollins. Supports ethanol subsidies in IA like any other sleazy pandering politician. Organized for Jimmy Carter in 76. I see a bad trend......

MB - I’m still not too sure about her - at least as POTUS candidate - if Palin runs, maybe as VP.

I think Mrs. Bachmann’s non-response to Mr. Rollins slams on Palin pretty much put the kibosh on that.

To paraphrase Dan Akroyd from SNL in the 70's.."Michelle you ignorant...."

Is there any doubt now what is really taking place here with the MSM and RINOs praising and supporting her. This is all part of the plan to eliminate Palin and split the conservative ticket so that Mittens gets the nomination. Screw Bachmann.

I've liked Bachmann, never said an unkind word about her, but what she's doing right now is distressing.

Playing with the GOP RINO establishment to fish for a VP slot under Romney with Rove's approval is just disgusting.

“Strange I thought the big GOP guns were backing Romney.”

They are. But, the first issue of business in getting Romney the nomination is stopping Palin. Bachmann is nothing more than a means for RINOs to stop Palin.

.....And alienate the very people who were supporting you.

Is it now fair to call Bachmann an Establishment backed VP candidate?

This is from 06 , shows how Rove created her and owns her. Rove pointed her to the Tea Party too. Rove is using her to help Romney. Bachmann will say and do anything to get ahead. She is an establishment plant.

Too much estrogen. No to Bachmann period. She faltered right out of the gate by not setting the record straight when Rollins blasted Palin. She cannot be trusted...period.

Not good.

It seems obvious that the establishment is eager for Bachman to run. It may have been political insiders like Rollins and Rove who persuaded her to jump into the race without waiting for Palin to declare.

I’ve said before, and I’ll say again, that I supported Bachmann for congress, and she might have moved up to Senator. But regretably she has seemingly given in to all the pressure to run—too soon. And she has been neglecting her House responsibilities ever since she was re-elected.

I doubt whether Rove really wants her as a candidate, but he may take some pleasure in destroying her career while trying to use her as a means of blocking out Sarah Palin—a far stronger candidate who will not compromise her principles the was Bachmann seems to be doing.

Would have helped if you’d kind of given the 2006 alert up front - your explanation makes sense.
