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.

Then, why did Rove recently say she was too inexperienced to President?
"The people who are going to be disposed to vote against Barack Obama are going to look back and say 'You know what, we took the untested guy who had no significant achievements, and it didn't work out so well'.
So Michele Bachmann and others who've not had extensive records -- I mean, Ronald Reagan was the governor of the most populous state in the union.... he had a record as an executive who made big decisions.
And next year, it's going to be important for people to say 'You can look at my background and look at what I've done in my life, and have confidence that I'm going to be able to do the things that I'm saying I want to do. Because last time around, we took hope and change and it didn't work out so well for a lot of people."
Ugh, and I was starting to warm up to Bachman.
Karl Rove nearly single-handedly destroyed Christine O'Donnell's chances of winning that election!
She visited the Khabari Alawazem Crossing at the KuwaitIraq border.
Excuse me but you said : Governor Palin should have spent the last three years traveling the world Now you want to move the goalposts? No.
She has been. Now you name another Presidential hopefull that has done the same.
How about visiting the UK and seeing David Cameron
She IS going to England. That's been posted on FR and I also told you.
MANY future candidates have written books on foreign policy
Name them. Name candidates that have written policy books and name where they traveled before running.
Uh, no . . . Christine O’Donnell did a fine job of it herself. She didn’t need any help.
Maybe we can start posting five year old articles from when Palin supported the bridge to nowhere.
No need to apologize. This article may be old, but it's important, because it reveals a tie between Bachmann and Rove that most of us were completely unaware of.
He's calling in a political favor to push his favored candidate (Romney) to the top. This is why Bachmann has remained silent after what Rollins said about Sarah.
I'm afraid that Bachmann's personal integrity was compromised from the very start of her political career. The article fills in a blank that finally makes sense of some mysterious goings-on.
Wow, it’s like Pavlov’s dogs here these days.
Bachmann has an outstanding record. She is a fighter, and one of the few in DC with the gravitas to buck the establishment and stand strong on conservative issues.
She is not my first choice for President, but I seriously wonder about people calling themselves conservatives who are so disparaging against those fighting the good fight.
I thought we are supposed to be supporting conservative principles not just personalities and in that we are on the SAME TEAM.
At least post something more recent.
Here's Bachmann supporting Boehner and his pathetic budget deal.
And what should the rest of the potential candidates have been doing in the same time? Where are their books on foreign policy?
Oh my. He actually uncovered Michele Bachmann's umbilical cord to Karl Rove. Naughty Freeper!
Karl Rove nearly single-handedly destroyed Christine O’Donnell’s chances of winning that election!
The establishment mask slipped then, and revealed a very malignant and treacherous face.
I’m right there with ya, bean.
That, or he saw her as a loon.
My friend, if you don't see the strong potential for undue influence over a potential presidential candidate in this article, then you've got blinders on.
Bachmann owes the very existence of her political career to Karl Rove.
She nixed the bridge when she became Governor. That bridge was a Murkowski deal.
Rita, I know that Sarah is making you crazy with waiting, but please. Sarah’s got plenty of time to declare a run for office. The fact is, she’s not late - the rest of the field is early.
I really hope somebody digs something up on you from 5 years back, and proceeds to slam you because of it.
It is sad to see Freepers going off of the deep end on a 5-year old article. Good grief...get a grip!
Oh, and if you think you can do it better, why don’t you get out their and run. I’m sure there would be many who could dig up some type of dirt on you from five or six years ago.
This lady has made a couple of mistakes, but good grief folks...these people are human beings! If you guys are waiting for a perfect person, you’re going to be waiting a long time. Remember your demand for perfection the next time you fu*k something up.
