Then ask yourself why a three-term Congresswoman who proclaims herself as "the leader" of the Tea Party (Tea Party has no leaders) suddenly decides to run for President, when she has zero legislative accomplishments and zero executive experience to run on otherwise.
Bachmann is in to blunt a Palin run. It is a well-known fact that the GOP establishment do not want Palin to run and will do all it can to stop her momentum. Look, she hired the excrement Ed Rollins who immediately attacked Palin even though Palin is not a declared candidate. Why didn't he attack Romney or the other "front-runners?"
Because there are things she believes that she wants to promote and believed she was the best person to do it.
No one standing on conservative principles that wants to get out and promote them should be bashed by alleged conservative.
I don't see you bashing Thadeus McCotter or Herman Cain. You're only bashing the candidate you consider, irrationally, to be a threat to your candidate, one that hasn't even said she is running yet.
Don't claim your actions are rooted in anything but jealousy and hatred.
