Bachmann Spokesman Accuses TEA Party Groups Of Being Bought

Of course the article is wording it to read that it is Gingrich buying their support.

From the article comes what is supposed to be a spokesman from her SC campaign:

Bachmann is trying to grow an organic base of supporters, and Newt Gingrich is trying to buy off tea party groups. … Newt Gingrich knows the only way he can get the tea party vote is to buy it.

And when asked about it, she doesn’t do much to downplay it:

Well, Wesley would have to speak to that himself with what evidence he has, but this is something that we’ve been hearing all across the country, that money is changing hands, and that’s not how I do business. In fact I’ve told people, I’ve told evangelicals, I’ve told tea partiers, I don’t pay people to come out and be my supporters, that’s not what I do. When we have tea party groups and all of the rest, I don’t do that because I’m just a real person.

I think it spells out how desperate her campaign is right now. She bought the first straw poll in Iowa and began losing traction the moment Rick Perry stepped in. When you accuse a rival of buying support, it overtly implies someone is selling it. Not good, when she is the one who promotes herself as the TEA Party candidate.

Although she would make a better President than Obama by a country mile, I am tired of her bragging. She has done so much shameless self-promotion and yet, really hasn’t been able to get much done in the short time she has been in office. The people elected a novice the last time. Ideologically sound or not, we do not need another one.

    I guess you have to be overly self-confident to run for POTUS, or crazy. Santorum is doing the same thing–chest thumping to remind everyone how much he’s done, but as with Bachmann it just doesn’t resonate. Unless someone else jumps in it’s gonna be Romney or Newt, with Perry viable until his next meltdown. Not a warm fuzzy on them sparring with the One.

  2. The establishment is with Romney. But honestly, he brags just as much as Bachmann. Sometimes, I wonder if he’s trying to convince us or himself. He comes across as too much of a sales manager for cars, and no one wants to have a high pressure salesman all over them when they want to shop for a car.
