I never agreed with how Michele went about doing things. She never did seem to make or keep enough friends in the GOP or Tea Party. That is lesson number one in politics – being loyal to those who help you. She chose instead to promote herself constantly.
Michele never seemed to have acute political instincts and allowed herself to be used by the GOP to thwart Sarah’s hopes of running in May of 2012. She apparently backstabbed Sarah Palin by trashing her supporters while running for President in Iowa. We may never know what happened, but if it is true, then it was definitely not a wise move. Sarah had publicly campaigned for her re-election in Minnesota, and she should have been more gracious. Sarah is so well-loved and loyally so, why would Michele think that would go well politically? I know Sarah Palin has taken the high road in many instances and this was just one more example of why that pays off.
I called Michele damaged goods when she would not criticize Romney during the debates. She expected to get something in return from him, but was only fooling herself the entire time.
Michele Bachmann used the TEA PARTY caucus to promote herself from the start. My particular gripe with that is that she didn’t stand up to Mr. Anti-TEA PARTY himself, John BOEHNER, when we needed her to. She held out until the end to see which way the vote would swing, and VOTED FOR his speakership renewal on January 3rd of this year. Apparently he managed to bribe her into casting the last vote for him. That is not courageous. We needed a fresh start by removing him. She never defended the FOUR fiscal conservatives that were purged from the committees either, and that was just plain wrong! She hurt our cause that way.
All of that being said, she should have stayed to fight the good fight and to show her sincerity and prove she really meant what she stood for. Her strongest point was to push for investigation into Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in DC, which is a huge problem. I respected her willingness to take the heat and to stand alone. So many don’t. There is simply too much pressure and p.c. to take this head on. The cowards who turned their backs on it (we know who they are) will probably never have the burden or fear of being investigated, as they help the administration and our enemies. WE NEED SOMEONE TO TAKE THIS ISSUE ON in the GOP! Someone with less baggage and a lot more effectiveness will hopefully take her place. It is too important to ignore, given the critical circumstances we all find ourselves in.
Here are her comments following the Benghazi attacks:
“It is my belief and my opinion that Barack Obama has been the most dangerous President we have ever had on American foreign policy. President OBama needs to get his priorities straight. What he needs to do is cancel his interview with David Letterman, cancel his meeting with Beyonce, cancel his meeting with JayZ, and instead agree to meet with the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu.”
Finally, I met her at the screening of “Occupy Unmasked” in Tampa last year. She presented the movie and spoke admirably about Andrew Breitbart. It was a great experience which I will always remember. I wish her well and urge her to continue fighting. It’s never about us as individuals, but about the cause. Having battle wounds is the only way to know a warrior has fought hard. To me she never really did BEGIN to FIGHT or show what she was made of.
The Left is viciously attacking her personally. NO matter how much I disagree with the less favorite politicians from our side, it is never okay to trash them, especially Conservative women, like they do.
