And I was so hoping that she’d be our next president. The Republican Party makes a joke out of our system. No wonder we’re failing as a nation.

While it’s true she has VERY little chance of winning the POTUS position, the longer she stays in, the better chance she thinks she has of being chosen for the VEEP slot.
Just think. The GOP will try to construct a ticket to appeal to the broadest demographic. They will want a woman in the second chair, so they can market how progressive they are, and draw more of the female vote. Not a bad strategy, but I wish they had a stronger candidate, such as Condi Rice or Olympia Snow, whom have shown real smarts. Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann: not so much.

Maybe the real reason they’re bailing is that during one of those “pray away the gay” sessions she and her husband conduct, one of the ‘prayers’ got loose, went off target and hit the staff. POOF! They’re gone!

This is so sad! I was looking forward to more history lessons from Candidate Bachman. We enjoyed hearing of the story of the battle of Concord and Manchester. Many of us in northern NH were hoping she’d come to Berlin to urge us to tear down the wall.

Her camp is so tired of her. Who isn’t? So her staff is quitting on her. Her ten minutes of flaming bigotry is almost in the trash can. Hurrah! Hurrah!

Why would anyone quit on her? She is a good for nothing member of Congress who has not helped out country one bit. She is being paid by tax payers and I want my money back. She voted against all bills toward solving the National Debt Crisis and was responsible for our countries terrible credit down grade.

If you want a good laugh, see YouTube’s Bad Lip Reading channel. The one for Bachmann is hilarious.

Does this sound like someone who will be able to balance the Federal budget? If she can’t manage her campaign finances, hate to hand her something more complex.
“She raised roughly $4 million in campaign funds in the third quarter and spent nearly $6 million. She has roughly $1.3 million cash on hand.”

I love it. The Bachmann campaign was doing so little…. it doesn’t even know if it quit. This might be a new low, even for the slack-ass tea party.

Bachmann went from front-runner to national fruit loop in about 1 month. You T-Par-T folks should send her some more of your money. Give generously.

Michele should resign as well. Her comments about the HPV vaccine was so stupid and so ill informed that I could not believe a female would know so little about this issue….but what was worse was that she attacked Perry ( and I am not a fan of Perry ) with her hateful attitude.

“There’s no truth to that story, so this is a rumor and I think it’s highly reprehensible for the media to publish a story without calling us,” Bachmann said.

No, no, Michele: Our state motto in New Hampshire is “Live Free or Die,” not “Lie Freely and Deny.”

Maybe the republicans will now send this Bachmann to an institue where they will cure her lying. Remember the story about how Obama health care would result in “death panels”.

That all came from a friend of Ms. Bachmann, who runs a medical supply business that stands to benefit from preventing govt controls on the cost of medical care.

And of course her hubby is an UNLICENSED PSYCHOLOGIST, who claims to “cure” gay people. The so called fix the gays programs are called “dangerous” by the American Psychiatric and Psychological professions.

If anyone needs some curing, its Bachmann.

Looks like her aides won’t be throwing sharp elbows at the press anymore.

This 2 party political circus is the joke. Now take all the people who buy into this debacle and what do you get. A bankrupt nation of no nothings claiming to know something. Palin and Bachman were a joke from day one I hope people begin to see that now.

I’d normally see this as good news, but at this point in time, it’s difficult to tell which one of the GOP candidates is the most insane. So when one drops out it makes me worry that the ones who are left are even more irrational and dangerous.

The only reason why they quit was because she decided to take Caine’s advice and lower their minimum wage….

Big question remains, who will Michele endorse when she quits? She is friends with Ron Paul but they have differing views on foreign policy.

Anyone who was thinking to vote for her must get their brain checked. Are you even serious to even think her to run for the office? We are the No1 country and we elect morons.
