All good things come to an end. We are now seeing the end of something. No, it is not 2011, even though the year only has two more days left.
What are we seeing the end of?
We are seeing the end of Michele Bachmann’s hopes for the White House.
We all knew Bachmann’s campaign was on life support, praying desperately for a Hail Mary in Iowa that would keep her campaign alive.
Instead, in the last 48 hours, her campaign has flat lined in a very public manner.
Citizens working for America, a Super Pac that was going to support Bachmann suddenly switched and decided it was going to support Romney. Then, if that was not bad enough, yesterday Bachmann’s Iowa co-chair Kent Sorenson appeared at a Bachmann rally in the afternoon, then three hours later was at an event endorsing Ron Paul.
Sorenson’s actions were those of the lowest form of politician. The Bachmann campaign claimed Sorenson told them that the Paul campaign had paid him a lot of money to defect. While that sounds implausible, nothing with the Ron Paul campaign would surprise me. A more likely scenario is that Sorenson realizes Bachmann is finished. He has almost certainly seen internal polling, which probably has told him the only thing left for the Bachmann campaign to do is to schedule the press conference where she drops out.
One thing that is certain is that Ron Paul’s organization will not be dismantled after this election and will certainly go to Rand Paul at some point. Sorenson will seek reelection in Iowa and Bachmann’s organization will not be there to help him. Paul’s organization would be.
As previously said, he is the lowest form of politician, selling his political soul for someone who can help his reelection. We can only hope that the people of Iowa will remember this and kick him to the curb any time his name shows up on a ballot.
For Michele Bachmann, it is the end of the road.
There is one thing she could do.
She can ride this all the way to the bitter end on Tuesday and schedule her press conference for Wednesday or she can act now.
Michele Bachmann needs to find the best conservative she agrees with, endorse them no later than this weekend and ask her supporters to vote for that candidate instead.
I hope she would support Newt Gingrich, as I believe he is the best conservative in the race. There is still Rick Perry and Rick Santorum.
We conservatives must stop Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. Period.
While the chances of Ron Paul actually winning the nomination remain slim, we must remember one of the great truisms of life. It is not the chances of an event occurring, it is the consequences of the occurrence.
If either Ron Paul or Mitt Romney wins the nomination, the game is over. Obama will have a second term. A second Obama terms will mean national bankruptcy. It will mean that in 2016, America will look like Greece. It means Obama will get at least one more Supreme Court pick and if he gets to replace one of the conservative members of the court, our constitution will be shredded.
Michele, your dreams of the Presidency are over. You can still do one thing to help the Tea Party and the conservative movement. Endorse a conservative before the caucuses on Tuesday and help us defeat Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.
This demonstrates that Ron Paul does not have ethics.
He does know where the gold is stored and intends to take it to a secure place and maybe begin a gold standard.
I am afraid of the "wheeler dealers".....they have us $16T in debt and Newt was part of that debacle. Do you think "joining the Catholic church has changed those tiger spots" ?
Ronald, I guess you can say Newt was part of it.
$16T + Balanced Budget (Newts' contribution) = $16T
No Debrajoe this demonstrates that they are leading us by the nose to settle on Romney. That is who (for some reason) the left wants us to end with. We need to figure this out and soon or we will get stuck with Romney or Bummer for another 4yrs and either way they win.
You are as much a traitor as Sorenson for asking Bachmann to step down. She is the one true conservative running and not Newt Gingrich, he is a wolf in sheep's clothing and not to be trusted.
Traitor? Wow. What did Judson do that could possibly be considered treason? To whom, exactly, did he betray trust? You don't agree with him so he's a traitor? Geez.
You are blind and showing no intelligence -- BACHMANN IS NOT NATIONALLY ELECTABLE, IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. Nice lady but 50%+ of America will never want her.
And for you to condition to endorse someone in that obvious position makes you an Obama supporter!!!
And to me that is the height of pathetic political stupidity, but rest easy, you are not alone.
I agree Harold.
Gee Harold, Like were not doomed if Obummer gets a second term and gets to destroy us via
the supreme court and a dozen other ways in the next 4 years. WAKE UP! Who ever is the
chosen one to oppose him, We need to replace Obama. 1st goal....
1st Goal is to get Obama removed from office for crimes committed. Don't wait, don't let him on the ballot.
Read the Georga Filing to Dismiss the motion to Dismiss by Obama. You will laugh your head off. If the court dismisses, we have a Communist Judge in Georgia. Need to impeach the judge first.
