    Reconsider Bachmann? No.

    Reconsider Bachmann? No.

    Taking another look at Michele Bachmann is one of the memes being pushed by people unhappy with the Newt/Romney choice in the wake of the likely departure from the race of Herman Cain.

    Why does Cain dropping out make Bachmann any better than she was?

    She’s still the person who built her campaign in the early summer around trashing Sarah Palin via Ed Rollins and was happy to ride that wave while it lasted.

    She has not been “accurate” in her portrayal of her own immigration statements earlier in the debates, and she is running around repeating endlessly something that is patently false, that Newt Gingrich wants amnesty for 11 million people, and she has falsely termed a letter Gingrich (along with Grover Norquist, Jack Kemp and others) signed in 2004 in support of a guest worker program an “amnesty” plan.  Repeating things endlessly does not make them true, and we can do better than that.

    Her performance in going after Rick Perry caused Steve Hayward of Power Line Blog to give up on her.

    She has been the only candidate explicitly to try to take advantage of Herman Cain’s latest problems by saying it shows that she is the only consistent candidate.  I think this tweet is accurate:

     

    Reconsider Perry, or consider Rick Santorum for the first time — that I understand although I don’t agree for reasons I previously stated.

    But reconsider Bachmann?  I hope you will just say no.

    So let me get this straight: Your reason for not considering or reconsidering Bachmann is because she attacked Sarah Palin? Or should I say her now gone campaign manager did? Now I like Palin more than anyone else, she would have gotten my vote, but that is a sorry excuse to be against Bachmann. Isn’t the name of the political game to elevate oneself ABOVE the other candidates, by whatever means are at your disposal?

    Did everyone forget how mad we were at McCain in the last election that he would not attack odumbo on his past stances, policy, and his associations?

    Oh jeeze you can’t have it both ways! How about we exclude or support a candidate based on their foreign, financial, moral, and political policies and positions?

    Stay above the fray you say? Newt is THE FRAY!!!

    Many supporters want Sarah Palin to reconsider running for President. Today, Conservatives4Palin will begin showing an ad on TV. To demonstrate that you think she should run, you can wear items that proclaim the message and help spread it far and wide. Please go to the link to find a t-shirt, jewelry, hat, tote bag, button, mug, water bottle or other item to advertise your support of the “Reconsider Movement”!

    My beef with Michelle Bachmann is that she thinks homosexuality can be cured. It’s like the socialist, who thinks that socialism can be enacted successfully. In short, she’s incapable of learning from her mistakes, and that we don’t need in a president.

    Along with her Rollins decision, there’s her choice of praising the one comedian who has called her an embarrassment and incompetent as a U.S. representative, Garrison Keillor.

    She could have chosen Al Franken instead who at least said he liked her personally.

    As much as I like Bachmann’s positions on many issues, with her track record in picking people for important campaign positions (and people to praise) who wants her choosing Supreme Court nominees or negotiating with other national leaders? Her lack of executive experience really shows in the important area of being able to read people and give wise responses.
