Michele Bachmann was interviewed by The Wall Street Journal:
“If I’m in, I’ll be all in,” says Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, artfully dodging my question of whether she’s running for president. Given that she just hired campaign strategist Ed Rollins, whose past clients include Ross Perot and Mike Huckabee, rumors abound. “We’re getting close,” she says, “and if I do run, like all my races, I will work like a maniac.”
That’s nice. And I stand by my prior comments that I like Bachmann and think she has a lot to offer.
But Bachmann has not dealt with the Ed Rollins situation.
As long as Rollins is an adviser to Bachmann’s campaign, that is a huge problem. If Bachmann doesn’t realize it, then she doesn’t have her ear to the ground, or her eyes on the comment sections of conservative blogs.
Bachmann needs to wake up to and deal with the reality of the damage Ed Rollins is doing to her campaign. Pretty soon it will be too late to cure.
