‚ÄúWhy is this Woman STILL Running?‚ÄĚ
Michele Bachmann‚Äôs numbers keep dropping at a rate that soon may very well cross into the negative column.¬† She is virtually invisible in the debates now and has very little to say to her followers.¬† It has gotten so bad that even ‚ÄúAmerican Majority‚ÄĚ a Tea Party Group has begin to criticize her.
According to ‚ÄúThe Christian Science Monitor‚ÄĚ Ned Ryan, head of the ‚ÄúAmerican Majority‚ÄĚ said recently in a blog titled ‚ÄúBachmann‚Äôs Floundering Can Damage Tea Party‚ÄĚ ‚Äúthat since Rep. Bachmann won the¬†Ames, Iowa straw poll her campaign has been hampered by a loss of staff, poor fundraising, and an apparent lack of direction. He anticipates that she will shift even further right in coming weeks as she competes for votes in conservative¬†Iowa, straying from the core tea party message of fiscal responsibility.‚ÄĚ
Finally he says, ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs time for Michele Bachmann to go.‚ÄĚ
Those of you who have frequented our website know I am no fan of Michele Bachmann.¬† I have noted several times her lack luster record; I have pointed out the plethora of ignorant remarks she has made over the last few years and how she could never be taken seriously as a viable presidential candidate.¬† Despite this and numerous other articles from noted writers showcasing her glaring shortcomings her name is still spoken on the lips of certain GOP leaders.
I have felt that this is due to her support by the Tea Party and the leaders of the GOP‚Äôs fear of crossing them at this time.¬† Well that time might be coming to an end.¬† According to ‚ÄúThe Real Clear Politics‚ÄĚ polling average Ms. Bachmann has dropped to 3.8 percent in national polls of prospective¬†GOP voters.¬† That puts her dangerously close to that 2% number where a campaign virtually disappears from view.
Bachmann herself thinks the American Majority criticism was a Rick Perry plot.
Even Bachmann‚Äôs campaign people have begun to bite the hand that feeds them calling the Tea Party decentralized and how no one organization or one person can speak for it.¬† It should be more than evident to everyone now Michele Bachmann will not make it past the Iowa Caucuses in January.¬† She is not expected to get more than 7% of the votes and that should FINALLY put an end of her presidential run for 2012.¬† I say simply ‚Äúgood riddance.‚ÄĚ
