Michele Bachmann Tag

I told myself I wasn't going to do this, because it's Ed Rollins' job, but the blatent bias of Politico's article, Michele Bachmann's thin legislative resume, requires pointing out Politico's thinly thought-out attack. Here is the money line on page one of the Politico article: Now in her...

The narrative already was being set, the Palinization of Michele Bachmann, but now that Fox News has joined in, it's all but over as to the Michele Bachmann narrative if she makes it to a general election (including as to V.P.). It's a question to which...

Maybe this will become the "Hey Ed Rollins, you deal with it" series, after Part 1 regarding the foul Rolling Stone attack on Michele Bachmann went over so well. This is how they do it, but you know all about that Ed, because you did it...

Your candidate is getting the predictable Palin-treatment, but of course, you have so pissed off Palin supporters, you deal with it.  After all, you are a serious campaign consultant. Michele Bachmann's Holy War, at Rolling Stone, has this image accompanying the article, which says pretty much all...

Via HotAir via WaPo comes news that Michele Bachmann "reportedly" ordered Ed Rollins to apologize to Sarah Palin for the nasty remarks Rollins threw Palin's way his first day on the job as a senior Bachmann campaign advisor. I've been busy the past few days with the...

Throwing things at politicians is a bad idea.   Anything.   How is security supposed to know if the perp is throwing glitter, or acid, or holding a knife.  Moving towards politicians in a threatening manner is just a bad idea. The MoveOn.org activist who moved in a threatening...

Sarah Palin passed on the opportunity to make the kind of insulting comments about Michele Bachmann made by Bachmann's campaign adviser Ed Rollins about Palin.When asked (@4:35) whether Bachmann was qualified to be President, Palin answered "she is."She is classy, and understands that the way...

I saw this interview of Rick Perry yesterday afternoon, and I was impressed.  I'm not willing to commit yet, because the field is not complete and I don't know enough about him, but I'm intrigued by Rick Perry.  (Thanks for all your prior comments, give...

Michele Bachmann should not be enjoying all the praise the Palin haters are throwing her way, for they don't really mean it, except as a tool to "shut the door" on Palin.  Example:Doug Mataconis about last night's debate:Bachmann is a much better public speaker [than Palin]...

I did not see the New Hampshire debate last night because I was traveling, but the various news reports, including from mainstream conservative blogs, seem to indicate that Romney appeared presidential and in command, Bachmann got attention and likely name recognition, Pawlenty missed an opportunity,...

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...

...An adviser to Rep. Michele Bachmann sends over this fairly ruffles-smoothing statement: “The Congresswoman has nothing but admiration and respect for Governor Palin. The two enjoy a good friendship, and Rep. Bachmann looks forward to working with the Governor for the common goal of making...

The chorus of voices pointing out the damage Ed Rollins is doing to Michele Bachmann because of the needless and damaging fight Rollins picked with Sarah Palin on his first day on the job is growing:Greta: "My advice? Better to dump Rollins now than to carry his baggage...

This is a follow-up to my post yesterday, Michele Bachmann's First Big Mistake - Hiring Ed Rollins, regarding Rollins out-of-the-gate attacks on Sarah Palin:Hiring Rollins is an enormous mistake for Bachmann. It could be campaign killing. The people who hate Palin are the same people...

As I've said before, I like Michele Bachmann.   Not surprisingly, Bachmann has come under the same types of snide attack as Sarah Palin from the mainstream media, entertainment industry and left-blogosphere.  There is a special place reserved for conservative women in the Democratic toolkit of mockery and derision.But Bachmann...
