Michele Bachmann drops out

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- In the wake of a disappointing finish in Tuesday's Iowa caucuses, Rep. Michele Bachmann announced Wednesday that she is suspending her campaign for president.

"Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, and so I have decided to stand aside," she said at a hastily-arranged news conference here.

"I have no regrets," she added. "None whatsoever. We never compromised our principles." She said she "looks forward to the next chapter in God's plan."

Bachmann did not endorse another candidate.

Bachmann, a third-term Minnesota congressman and the founder of the Tea Party caucus in the House, won the support of just five percent of Iowa Republican caucus-goers Tuesday. She finished in sixth place in the caucuses, which was essentially last place among the major contenders, since Jon Huntsman did not contest the state.

She also came in last in the hard-fought, three-way race among the candidates targeting Iowa social conservatives, finishing behind second-place finisher Rick Santorum and fifth-place Rick Perry. Perry, the Texas governor, said Tuesday he is returning to the Lone Star State to reassess his campaign, though he said Wednesday he plans to stay in the race.

Bachmann said Republicans should "rally around" the Republican nominee in order to defeat President Obama next November. Thanking her husband, her campaign staffers and her supporters, she vowed to "continue to be a strong voice" for her beliefs.

It's been a sad fall for Bachmann in Iowa, where she was born. She won the straw poll here in August, a finish that briefly earned her frontrunner status for the caucuses. But her support eroded steadily since the summer, and an aggressive retail campaign here that included a recent 99-county, ten-day bus tour did not improve her standing.

And another one bites the dust.  Now if she would just stay out of the media as well since she is no longer imo relevant to current events.  But I know that is just wishful thinking.

Like I said in the other thread, she's been out, she just didn't realize it till now.

Maybe she'll take a lesson from this that people won't buy her shit when it's found to be wrong by even the nuttiest of her followers.

Still I'll bet there's a good chunk of people weeping and crying right now because she's officially done

Joy. Can she stop being a part of the news along with her husband now?

I honestly want to see their idiocy wilt away with this. However, considering that she is who she is, she'll probably find a way to be talked about all the time somehow.

It just goes to show, you can be FROM Iowa...and visit every single county IN Iowa....but if you're too crazy for Iowa, then you're too crazy for anyone.

She'll go the way of Palin. Either she'll do stupid stuff, say stupid stuff, or her followers will have repeated orgasms over her and beg her to be stupid

Didn't she forget to add the "Gacy" to that?

Wow. I'm surprised. But then again, not really.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Corinthians 13: 4-7

I'm especially amused by the fact that she looks forward to the next step in God's plan when before Iowa she pretty much said that God told her his plan was for her to be President.

Perhaps she is right. God's plan was to humiliate her in a crushing defeat in her home state and to subject her to national ridicule for the insane things she claims in His name.....

Man I hope the next stop in God's plan is being unable to fend off a challenger for her Congressional seat.

Ironbite-then she can fade away just like Palin.

You REALLY think card-carrying attention whore Sarah Palin is just going to "fade away?" That's about as likely as Trump fading away.

Bachmann was never a serious contender for president. That was obvious from the get-go. I know some people who like Palin, and even they think she's too nuts.
