She said critical comments Mr. Rollins made to reporters after stepping aside were dismaying.
“When it comes to personnel issues, I act professionally and respectful of former employees,” she said. “I just assume that’s a two-way street. It’s disappointing when it’s not.”
When it was pointed out that Mr. Rollins has a history of speaking sharply about candidates who once employed him, Mrs. Bachmann offered a tight smile. “I guess I should have done that Google search,” she said.
If you did a Google search you would have found these posts of mine:
- Okay, So You Knew Reagan(“Okay, so you [Ed Rollins] knew Reagan. His greatness and class obviously didn’t rub off on you. What have you done for us lately?”)
- The Republican Party Can’t Win Without The Support of Palin Supporters (“Run, don’t walk, away from Ed Rollins and the others who think that demeaning Sarah Palin is the best way to advance your campaign.”)
And just after you hired him in June I warned Michele Bachmann’s First Big Mistake – Hiring Ed Rollins:
Please take advice from someone who likes you. Dump Rollins overboard now, before it’s too late.
By then, it may have been too late already. Whatever chance you had of winning over Palin supporters and being the unifying Tea Party inspired candidate vanished with the opening of Rollins’ acerbic mouth.
I practically begged you to reconsider, Michele Bachmann Needs To Dump Ed Rollins Now, but to no avail.
Now Rollins is trash talking you. Everyone could have seen this coming, except you.
