Does Michele Bachmann Agree With Her Spokesman?; Updated





Today Michele Bachmann’s spokesman, Ed Rollins, whom she recently hired, had some rather nasty things to say about Governor Palin. In order to give Bachmann the benefit of the doubt, we respectfully request that she either affirm her support for the long-time beltway fossil’s idiotic comments…or refudiate them.

Update: (h/t Jim R) Via the Star Tribune, another of Bachmann’s employees, Andy Parrish, attempted to rationalize the comments of her newest employee, Ed Rollins:

Bachmann aide Andy Parrish said Rollins was not speaking as a Bachmann adviser. "The Congresswoman and Ms. Palin have an excellent relationship," Parrish said in an e-mail. "Rollins was in his media analyst role."

People can judge for themselves whether this convenient excuse explanation is credible…or not.

              Nicole, I saw your comment on MB’s site.  These days I limit myself to C4P and the Theothermccain with my comments but I do enjoy reading some of other site’s threads.  (I agree with Breitbart that Ace’s commenters are the among the best for a good snark and laugh).

              Thanks though for your sincere and measured reply to MB that speaks for me too.  Poor judgement in leadership (and hiring) leads to betrayal of trust.  As they say, one harsh remark or angry retort can take many days or years to repair.  But you cannot expect restraint of tongue and pen when your team (MB) is poorly directed and is based on the illusion of personality rather than the strength of character.

      This puts to rest, once and for all, the meme that Bachmann is doing this all for Palin’s benefit.  Bachmann is campaigning certainly not to pave the way for Palin, but because Bachmann harbored delusions about her own political strength.

        I agree.  MB is a snake.  Her acts and the acts of her team have betrayed her true colors.

        It’s time this sleeping grizzly called ‘Palin Nation’ arises and devours the upstart who arrogantly thinks she is the leader of the Tea Party Movement.

        Hey Michele, game on!

        • Anonymous

          Absolutely!  Michelle was a relatively obscure politician until she received a lot of attention during her 2010 re-election campaign AFTER Palin donated PAC money and gave her time and endorsement to Michelle.  All of the attention Palin got her has obviously gone to her head.  Should Michelle manage to get the GOP nomination I will stay home.  And to show how seriously I mean this, I am willing to hold my nose and vote for RINO Romney if he gets the nomination!  RINO is one thing…betrayal is another!   And lack of courage to admit to that betrayal is yet another level of desperation!

          SHE HIRED ROLLINS, and she DID NOT FIRE him after he said that crap about Gov. Palin.
          In politics, that means:  "Thanks, Ed, for doing my dirty work.  Nail Palin for me!"

    Doesn’t this seem eerily familiar to the Romney playbook of attacking through surrogates?

    Here’s what’s really sad:  If you need to insist– yourself or through a surrogate– that you are a tea party "leader", then you’re not.  If you need to insist– yourself or through a surrogate– that you speak to and for social conservatives, then you don’t.

    Oh, Bachmann knows the words of the tea party, but from her hiring of Rollins to what he said (about Bachmann) to Bachmann’s support of Republican big government policies of the Bush administration, it’s pretty clear that she doesn’t get it . . . if only because she’s never gotten that the tea party speaks as much to the overriding cronyism of the establishment as it does to certain big government policies.

    • Anonymous

       
      Yep, Establishment.

      I voted for both these guys, however George H W Bush gave us Clinton, George W Bush gave us Obama. Looks as though I made a couble of mistakes. My oldest son accused me of being obsessed with Sarah Palin. I explained to him that with the exception of Ronald Reagan I have had to choose between the lesser of two evils in every election since I was 21 years of age ( I’m 76 now ). Finally we are on the cusp of our salvation as a nation and I have to make only one choice. And she’s the first best, (sic ). If Sarah doesn’t run and doesn’t win, I will be totally depressed and sad for the United States of America.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EJAKOPKFSBW5C44W4ODHSIPF6M john

        I’m not quite 76 . . . LOL, but, in all seriousness, here’s how I look at it:

        I’m an Ivy League grad, lived most of my life in blue areas, own my own business . . . in other words, I’m not what one might typically call the Sarah Palin target audience. 

        End of the day, I don’t care if she’s a genius or an idiot or, as Powerline wrote, if she’s right just about all of the time by remarkable coincidence.  I don’t care if she’s a brilliant impromptu speaker or has a knack sometimes, instead of using long pauses and a lot of "um’s", of giving us convoluted sentences (I’m told that Eisenhower was a lot alike in this regard).  I don’t even care if I agree with her on every specific issue.

        The simple reason I’m a fan:  What this country needs more than anything else right now is for the next president to go to Washington, middle finger extended to the establishment.  We need someone who sees the cronyism of all sides of the establishment as being as great a threat to the republic as any one of the Bush or Obama big government policies of the last decade.

        More than anything else, I think most people out there just want to be left alone and to have a chance again to make their lives and their children’s lives better in a country where the quote "system" isn’t gamed against the unconnected (whether it’s a mid-sized business, a small business, someone in the professional world, someone in the middle class, or someone in the poor).

        For years, Democrats have spoken of this cronyism, albeit in terms of one side.  But, they have identified bigger government and more centralized control as the solution.  That’s why I laugh about people like Bachmann, a tea party interloper who’s all for the cause when it suits her and all for big government and cronyism when Bush is around.

        Among Republicans, Palin is one of the few who has spoken of the universal cronyism and spent a career– defined a career– fighting against it.  And, she’s the only one either running or thinking of running for president about whom I can say that.

        Is she an imperfect messenger?  Yeah, I think so . . . and, she’d probably be the first to say that, if her comments about "man" being born imperfect are to be believed.  Do I care?  No, because the message, as she would be the first to say and has proven with a pair of resignations in her life, always is more important than the messenger.

        Side note:  This is why people don’t "get" what she’s saying when she talks about wanting to see who else is out there.  They’ll do the Cain/Bachmann are like you stuff, because the words are similar.  But, they ignore the essence of who Gov. Palin is and what she, at her core, believes about the political process . . . it’s why the only name I’m ever heard her offer as a "star" of the party is Paul Ryan (she’s said unsolicited nice things about people she likes, like Rick Perry, but, when you listen to her defend Ryan, it’s like a momma grizzly defending a cub).

          Very well said! 

          I also fit the category of what many would consider an "elite" (a well educated person with a master degree and two law degrees who has spent a lot of time living in big blue cities, like New York and Los Angeles, mingling with a lot of professionals in law, business, and medicine).

          You have summed up what I, too, like and appreciate about Gov. Palin.  She’s not the most articulate speaker at times, but she is the most authetic and tested candidate who will run this time around.  If we’re going to fix America, we need someone who has and will fight the "good ole boys" and those who are only interested in doing "business as usual".  They have sunk America.  Gov. Palin has a proven track record of doing just this very thing though out her entire career in public service.  I believe that what you see is what you’ll get with Palin.  There is no artifice, just someone who is a REAL leader, patriot and fighter.  This is why I’m willing to volunteer my time and professional skills to helping ensure she’s elected as the next President of the United States.

            Not only is she willing and able to go to the American people and let us know what is wrong in DC and give us her opinion on how to fix it, she listens when we speak!  She had the COURAGE to walk up to those who were protesting her while on her bus tour and SHAKE THEIR HANDS!!!!  She did not ignore them, send security after them, put them down…she walked over, listened to what they had to say, responded reasonably and SHOOK THEIR HANDS!  What a woman!

              Exactly…  The sign of a true leader is one who is willing to listen to those who disagree with her and walks up and shakes their hands (like Gov. Palin), not someone who acts like a petulent child who tries to humilate them in front of the crowd (like the person who temporarily occupies the White House).

        I’m 46, not 76, but I have the same story. Ronald Reagan had my back as an American, and I had his, 100%. If someone insulted him, I defended him, regardless of where I was or what the circumstances were. The rest of the Republican Presidents and Nominees were just big government hacks. Palin gives me hope again and excitement. I’m already planning out how I’m going to handle the attacks when I hear them personally.

    I don’t know what Rollins is talking about, but Bachmann needs to dump him immediately.  Does she agree with Rollins’ bizarre statements (?) – talk about "not serious", Rollins and Bachmann have really beclowned themselves and destroyed the last remaining threads of MB’s credibility.

        You are right – it is a really weird attack though.  Bachmann is already seen by most as unstable and delusional and these statements by Rollins just reinforce that image.  It appears that Rollins’ goal is to destroy any (mythical?  theoretic?  imagined?) chance Bachmann may have had.  It is just weird and unnecessary.

    Ed Rollins can’t be too bright. There is no reason to fight Palin yet, she isn’t running. And if she decides not to run it will be impossible for Bachmann, or any other candidate to win, without Palin’s imprimatur. His idiocy says more about Bachmann than himself though. She should fire him.

      Actually, what Ed did makes perfect sense . . . the ONLY way Bachmann gets noticed is if Palin engages.  If she transcends– if she ignores Bachmann and focuses on Romney and her true messages about true free markets and the cronyism throughout the establishment– then Bachmann remains what she’s always been . . . an afterthought.

        Rollins is probably there (1) to keep MB in check on behalf of the elites, and (2) to trash Gov. Palin supposedly on behalf of MB, but mostly on behalf of the elites—-who, never forget, don’t care which party wins, so long as they retain their power and money.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EJAKOPKFSBW5C44W4ODHSIPF6M john

    Well, now that I’ve calmed down, here’s my suggestion:

    1. For us, get the word out there in the conservative blogs and media.  The question Doug is asking here . . . this is the question we need to hear Hannity and Levin and Rush and the rest asking.  And, it’s incumbent on us to make sure that happens.

    2. As for Sarah and her team, as I wrote in another thread, Bachmann is a gnat in scheme of things.  What Rollins did– it’s a cry for attention.  The only way people notice her is if Sarah engages.  So, don’t engage . . . transcend.  Transcend with more of these bus tours.  Transcend by speaking directly to the people.  Transcend with a documentary that reminds people that what really matters is having leaders who have consistently fought against the cronyism of the establishment and that Sarah, unlike anyone else declared or thinking about declaring, has dedicated her life to doing this.  Transcend by reminding people that those who say "quitter" are the same who value personal power more than service to the people to whom she took an oath to serve their interests AND then use this as an overarching explanation for the resignations from the oil and gas commission and the governor’s position.  You don’t engage Bachmann . . . you transcend her and turn it into a race against Romney (and act to make sure that T-Paw and Huntsman take chunks of support from Romney).

      Sorry…I don’t agree with you for a second.  Of course, Sarah shouldn’t reply…but we all should.

        Uh, that’s exactly what I wrote, if you’d bothered to read what I wrote before disagreeing with what I wrote.

      Well john, I agree. U da man! Best commenter on here. Its true, MB’s got every right to run, but shes starting to reveal herself as a typical pol.

      John, don’t ever calm down! We here at C4P are in the vanguard of protecting our liberties, and putting the "we the people" back into government.  You present yourself as a needed voice in a chorus demanding the American experiment not to parish from this earth.  We will not be calm as long as there is ONE amongst who is fearless in fighting for those ideas many have given their lives.

    Don’t worry fellow Barbarians, Ed Rollins was just acting in his "media analyst role", so it really doesn’t matter if ole Ed works for team Bachmann, as long as he disses Palin in his "media analyst role"- everything is just peachy:

      BS. That is a cowards response. Bachmann can’t hide that way.

      LOL … the response by Bachmann’s aide does not even meet the "lie that will fly test!" Thank you representative Bachmann for confirming what many of us suspected.

    "media analyst role", that is probably the worst way to dismiss Rollins’s comments.
    These GOP Elite pundits, are not exactly looked upon with great admiration by the base. In fact, if MB was doing her job in the House, I dare say Ed Rollins would be saying the same things about MB.

    I see Bachmann’s true colors are finally shining through – and they ain’t pretty!

    Whoa, Ed Rollins looks like the clueless James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence?  Or just my imagination?

    I know Rollins. He’s a first class as#hole.

    A Republican hiring Rollins is like a Democrat hiring that loser Shrum.

    He’s another failure that doesn’t know when to retire.

    "media analyst role"?, um, that is throwing fuel on the fire…….especially when the media analyst has practically the same point of view as a Carville, rather than a Bila.

    I just fired of several notes on Michelle’s facebook page… Michelle we running against Obama not Sarah Palin. I asked Michelle to fire Ed Rollins and demanded an apology!!!!  They are trying to cause a war between the Tea Party and the GOP….It’s not going to work Michelle. Michelle will loose support and Sarah will gain. The stories on"OUTSIDE THE BELTWAY" and in "HOT AIR" are lies. I can see why Sarah is waiting to get in to see if these people are in for the right reasons…What kind of friend would employ a jerk that goes after Sarah Palin. Michelle needs to run on he record not lie about Sarah!!!! It’s clear to me Michell talks the talk but does not walk the walk!!!! Sad to see..but know we know what we are dealing with!!!! Sarah 2012!!!
