"[Romney] cannot beat Obama… it’s not going to happen."
- Michele Bachmann (R-MN) in December 2011.
The one time in her short-lived run on The GOP Clown Car Show that Ms. Bachmann spoke the truth.
No doubt that the Romney camp must be truly ecstatic today about receiving Ms. Bachmann’s endorsement.

"This is just about waiving a tar baby in the air and saying that something else is a problem. I have never seen a more irresponsible President who is infantile in the way that he continually blames everyone else for his failure to first diagnose the problem and second to address the problem."

"One argument that the government was trying to make is that somehow health care is uniquely different. That government can regulate it because everyone participates. Health insurance is not uniquely different. It’s still an opportunity that some people choose to engage in, but 40 million people do not. And the premise was made that people don’t buy insurance because they can’t afford it. That’s not true. There are people who just decide they want to roll the dice and take their chances that they won’t need insurance."

Perry Signs an Evangelical Pledge - NYTimes.com
In an effort to woo evangelical voters in Iowa, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas has become the third Republican presidential candidate to sign a pledge to oppose gay marriage, to appoint only “faithful Constitutionalists” as judges, to stay loyal to his spouse, to shrink the size of the federal government, and to oppose Islamic law, among other things.
Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann have already signed this alleged “evangelical” pledge. There seem to be some omissions, though. Where are those major points about “loving your neighbor as yourself” or blessing the poor? And what at all do appointing judges who are “faithful Constitutionalists” or shrinking the federal government have to do with any religious belief? Sorry, but this pledge is just wacky.
Out on campaign trail, Rep. Bachmann missed every House vote in September - TheHill.com
After Standard and Poor’s downgraded the U.S. credit rating in August, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) called for Congress to return immediately from its recess to restore the nation’s AAA rating.
But when lawmakers eventually returned to Washington in September, Bachmann did not.
The House held 60 votes during the month of September, and the Minnesota Republican missed them all.[…]
Before the month-long congressional recess, she had missed around 40 percent of House votes since announcing her candidacy.
