Newsmax: Bachmann Changes Strategy as Perry Surges in Polls

Changes strategy? No, this is belittling Perry, and trying to make him look small, in comparison. The 11th GOP commandment: “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”

This was not meant as a protection from stupid statements. It was meant as a way of saying there are so many things we agree on, focus on the positives. Reagan was a master of this, which in turn made him one of the greatest Presidents in the history of our country. He didn’t bash the other Republicans, he focused on his positives.

Bachmann going negative is a turn off to me. Perry is playing this right, by focusing his negative attacks on the other side, not engaging in friendly fire.

    If Bachmann is changing her tactics (by attacking the current GOP “front runner”) along with allegedly promoting herself in a fashion which suggests she is trying to “out God” her fellow GOP candidates, than I feel sorry for her. Having a strong personal (and one would hope, reasonably private) faith in God, and an adherence to Christian (or any other faith … save Islam) doctrine is one thing, and in this secular age could be (and perhaps should be) a commendable trait. Character does matter.

    But to showboat ones faith in order to curry favor, be it for a job, a better station/status among ones peers, and especially to achieve a public office and a public trust, is at best shameful, and at worst shows a marked flaw in ones character. (I’ll take the sin of “Pride” for $500 Alex). Though Bachmann is not the first to do this, one expects better from those who profess to be not only in tune with the American public at large, and seek to adhere to the Constitution.

    Whoever her manager is, he is doing her a disservice.

    This has Ed Rollins written all over it. The dirty “Romney is a Mormon” stuff he did with Huckabee.

    Hard to believe he ran 1984, with such a positive message.

      He may have run 1984 with a positive message, but he is now running 1984.

      Yeah, that was all over the news today. Plus, how she’s SO far behind…in second place.

      These idiots in the news, wow.
