    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Well, Michele Bachmann pulled the plug and I'm gonna miss her. I am. I'm really going to miss Michele Bachmann. She had a direct way of speaking. In her presser today, in her press conference where she announced she was pulling out, she said this might be the last election to turn around before we go down the road to socialism, and you could hear the journalists in the room practically gasp. They could not believe what they were hearing, the last election that we have to turn around before we go down the road to socialism....

    An adviser to Michele Bachmann says the Minnesota congresswoman is ending her bid to win the Republican presidential nomination after coming in last in the Iowa caucuses. Bachmann finished sixth out of six candidates in the first of many contests to pick a Republican presidential candidate. She canceled appearances planned for Wednesday in South Carolina and scheduled a news conference in Des Moines, Iowa, instead. The adviser requested anonymity to speak before Bachmann makes the announcement.

    DES MOINES, Iowa--He's mentioned during the presidential candidates' speeches. His image appears in their political ads. Is Tim Tebow the new Ronald Reagan? What does a young NFL quarterback have to do with politics? Nothing, really. But the born-again athlete's star power and popularity have prompted several of the presidential candidates to try to hook themselves to his star. A political action committee supporting Bachmann is the latest to get in on the Tebow comparison, running TV ads in Iowa that liken her to the 24-year-old born-again Christian.

    Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry are competing for many of the same voters. They’re even trudging similar paths. Both launched their final week of campaigning before the Iowa Caucus with events in Council Bluffs. They also spent the day spreading their conservative message throughout southwest Iowa. However, the dual appearances in Council Bluffs provided stark contrasts. Bachmann’s campaign scheduled a visit to the tiny Scooter’s coffee shop. It was primarily an opportunity for Bachmann to receive media coverage from the Omaha TV market. Only a handful of local voters showed up, but media from around the country attended. Bachmann arrived...

    Phyllis Schlafly, considered a founder of the modern conservative movement, endorsed Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann for president on Sunday. “Michele has the courage to be a leader among her peers. She is a real champion in speaking up for values we care about. Michele is a woman of faith and the mother of a beautiful family. She has a 100 percent pro-life record and is a strong supporter of traditional marriage,” Schlafly said in a statement. Schafly first came to national prominence in 1964 when she wrote A Choice, Not an Echo, a book that is credited with helping the...

    Webster City, Iowa (CNN) - As Newt Gingrich denies he was paid to lobby Republicans for mortgage giant Freddie Mac, fellow Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann on Wednesday challenged Gingrich's denial. "Whether former Speaker Gingrich made $300,000 or whether he made $2 million, the point is that he took money to also influence senior Republicans to be favorable toward Fannie and Freddie," Bachmann said after a campaign event in Webster City, Iowa.

    Michele Bachmann's New Hampshire campaign staff is definitely gone, even though Bachmann said she didn't know about it. The news that all five of Bachmann's paid staffers in New Hampshire had quit broke on Friday, but when Radio Iowa approached Bachmann for comment, she said all was well. "That is a shocking story to me," she said. "I don't know where that came from. We have called staff in New Hampshire to find out where that came from and the staff have said that isn't true, so I don't know if this is just a bad story that's being fed...

    Ed Rollins, former campaign manager and current "informal adviser" to Rep. Michele Bachmann, told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell moments ago that Bachmann doesn't have the "ability or the resources" to go beyond Iowa. Rollins stopped working for the campaign day-to-day earlier this month in a staff shakeup, and criticized her comments on the HPV vaccine last week. Rollins said Texas Gov. Rick Perry's entrance into the race undercut her campaign, and that she was unprepared for the national stage running as a congresswoman.

    Politics It’s Time for Michele Bachmann To Go Posted on September 14, 2011 at 3:16pm by Will Cain Print »Email » Comments (23)No more. Conservatives should be done with Michele Bachmann. Over the past year Bachmann has snake-charmed many conservatives into thinking that she – and only she – is dedicated to conservative principles. But almost every time she speaks, she shows ignorance and infidelity to concepts such as free market capitalism (promises of two dollar gas), constitutional federalism (proclaiming state mandates unconstitutional), governance (never ever raise the debt ceiling), medicine (Gardasil causes retardation), and leadership (staff turnover). Let me...

    Powerline ^ | 09/14/11 | Steven Hayward
    Up to now I’ve thought Michele Bachman was the most impressive performer in the GOP field, going toe-to-toe with the “big boys” in the field, out-arguing them on several occasions, and introducing serious constitutional arguments that the rest of the field (even Perry) are too timid to attempt. She’s right to go after Rick Perry on the issue of mandating the use of the Gardisil vaccine, along with the issue of “crony capitalism,” both of which get at the issue of a potential president’s sense of the reach and limits of state power. Perry is a mixed bag on this...

    Not all conservative firebrands are created equal, according to a Pew Research Center poll released Thursday afternoon. The poll shows that 41% of GOP primary voters said there is no chance they would vote for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, should she run for president. And two-thirds of all voters said Ms. Palin wouldn’t get their vote, the highest percentage of any declared or potential presidential candidate. Another tea party favorite, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.), performed slightly better – 31% of the Republican primary voters said they would never vote for Mrs. Bachmann while 56% of all voters said...

Mrs Bachmann cast herself as 'one little fighter' when she appeared before supporters in Columbia, South Carolina. 'We need one strong hombre or hombre-ette, and I'm the hombre-ette to go and stand for you in Washington D.C.,' Mrs Bachmann said.

    Reid: Bachmann doesn't stand a chance of winning GOP nomination By Josiah Ryan - 08/15/11 11:10 AM ET Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has no chance of securing the GOP presidential nomination, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said on Friday, just one day before she won the Ames Straw Poll. "She doesn't stand a chance to win the Republican nomination," Reid said. Reid's made his comments, which were published on Monday, in a lunchtime meeting with staff members at the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Reid also took a swing at Mitt Romney, implying that the former governor of Massachusetts had shifting...

    Even Karl Rove thinks Republicans should be wary of nominating an "extreme" candidate to take on President Obama. In an appearance on Fox News Monday, Rove warned that presidential aspirants who run too far to the right in the GOP primary could end up reducing their electability in the general election. "You don't want these candidates moving so right in the Republican primary that it becomes impossible for them to win the general election, because it will become a self-defeating message in the primary," Rove said.

    It appears David Gregory is a bit confused about how our system of government works. During intense questioning of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on Sunday's "Meet the Press," the host scolded his guest for having the nerve to actually care what the American people thought about raising the debt ceiling (video follows with transcript and commentary): DAVID GREGORY, HOST: Let me ask you about the debt ceiling. You were adamantly opposed to raising the debt ceiling. You voted against that. REPRESENTATIVE MICHELE BACHMANN (R-MINNESOTA): Mm-hmm. MR. GREGORY: And there's a lot of people who said that was an incredibly reckless...
  • What Michelle Bachmann's submission theology really means

    When the Washington Examiner’s Byron York asked Michele Bachmann if she was submissive to her husband at the Fox News GOP debate Thursday night, the crowd gasped and booed. That’s because wifely submission -- also known as complementarian theology -- is central to the faith of many evangelicals. York’s question wasn’t about religion per se, but was an attempt to probe whether, if Bachmann became president, America would be getting Marcus' decisions and not hers. It’s common for Christian politicians questioned about their adherence to submission theology to dodge a scriptural explanation, as Bachmann did. After all, while dominionist-minded evangelicals...

    I just committed myself 15 mins ago. My first round donation is done. Was always looking for the winnable conservative candidate with extensive executive experience. Between Romney and Perry, choice is clear. Only other possible entrant is Palin and she interested me as a reform minded GOP Governor who was a VP candidate. While she may enter the race and be more to the right of Perry, I am not looking for the "right most" candidate.
