BREAKING: Bachmann Deputy Campaign manager in Iowa either quits or is fired for defending Sorenson.

Developing.. it may be Wes Enos (http://caucuses.desmoinesregister.com/2011/12/29/michele-bachmanns-political-director-defends-kent-sorenson-against-bachmann-allegations/), who defended Sorenson earlier today. He is the political director for Bachmann.


EDIT:
Confirmation: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/12/bachmann-vows-to-continue-in-iowa-despite-loss-of-senior-campaign-officials/
(http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/12/bachmann-vows-to-continue-in-iowa-despite-loss-of-senior-campaign-officials/)

Bachmann’s Iowa political director, Wes Enos, who like Sorenson joined her campaign in its first days, released a statement under Ron Paul’s letterhead refuting Bachmann’s assertion that Sorenson had been paid to go. Sorenson and Enos both say the state senator decided to back Paul because he had many friends on that campaign, and believed Paul has the best chance of winning.

According to Bachmann spokeswoman Alice Stewart, Enos “is no longer with us,” but she would not confirm whether he’d been fired for insubordination or left on his own accord.

Statement from Wes:"I said what o had to say and fully accept the consequences of that decision. I wouldn't take it back even if I could."

Now she says the Paul people bought Sorenson's allegiance, but her now former political director Wes Enos came forward and disputed that allegation. Enos, by the way, has since been fired.

It is a bit hard to feel sorry for her after, with Ron endorsing and donating to her Congress run and going up to her district at her request to campaign for her when she was in a tight race, she returns it by stealing direct lines from his speeches, presenting ideas he taught her in economics lunches he held as her own, and saying she was the ONLY one to, for example stand against the debt ceiling raise when Ron led the charge. Oh, and stealing his ad team, although that, frankly, worked out great. But even so, I don't want her to drop out before the caucuses.

These recent events is ALL about Santorum. ALL of it and its designed to disrupt Ron's momentum. They are making this all too obvious.

I thought that as well. I would think that many or even most Bachmann supporters would go to Paul, while Santorum and Perry would pick up the rest. It would not help Gingrich or Romney.

So I'd say, yes, that would be great. A Bachmann implosion might leave the field like this:

Ron - substantial lead
Romney
Santorum - maybe close to Romney
Perry - maybe close to Santorum
Gingrich
Huntsman

This would be a dream result for Iowa. Gingrich would be humiliated in 5th place, and then Perry and Santorum get single digits in New Hampshire, which looks more like Romney, Paul, Huntsman, Gingrich.

Ron and Romney would be the only two with any credibility left for South Carolina. And Ron would be the conservative. :D

note seeing it

I don't see anything posted on her official FB page since yesterday. If it's happening they must be deleting the posts.

Have you seen her facebook wall? Wow, it looks like everyone is ridiculing her. I almost feel sorry for her.

I don't. She's a lying, conniving harpy.

You're giving too much credit. A house / building has structure & integrity. Bachmann is more....

I thought that as well. I would think that many or even most Bachmann supporters would go to Paul, while Santorum and Perry would pick up the rest. It would not help Gingrich or Romney.

So I'd say, yes, that would be great. A Bachmann implosion might leave the field like this:

Ron - substantial lead
Romney
Santorum - maybe close to Romney
Perry - maybe close to Santorum
Gingrich
Huntsman

This would be a dream result for Iowa. Gingrich would be humiliated in 5th place, and then Perry and Santorum get single digits in New Hampshire, which looks more like Romney, Paul, Huntsman, Gingrich.

Ron and Romney would be the only two with any credibility left for South Carolina. And Ron would be the conservative. :D


I never thought of it like this. This is a dream scenario but remember that Liberal Neocon Lindsey Graham holds the ears of many in South Carolina.

Maybe these defections to our campaign will be like a snowball that will crush anyone loyal to the Neocon ideology. If Graham attempts to step up any attacks against Paul near the SC primary, they may fall on deaf ears because I think people are sick and tired of the fear frenzy the MSM is trying to portray in the likely scenario that Paul actually wins the GOP.

Bring it on you half-dead motherfuckers.

They'll jump ship and go elsewhere. Hopefully to the true conservative campaign.. Ron Paul FTW LIKE A BOSS

I don't want her to drop out before the caucuses. It is a bit hard to feel sorry for her after, with Ron endorsing and donating to her Congress run and going up to her district at her request to campaign for her when she was in a tight race, she returns it by stealing direct lines from his speeches, presenting ideas he taught her in economics lunches he held as her own, and saying she was the ONLY one to, for example stand against the debt ceiling raise when Ron led the charge. Oh, and stealing his ad team, although that, frankly, worked out great. But even so, I don't want her to drop out before the caucuses.
Wow, it seems Michele is experiencing the backlash of bad karma. What a bad person!

lol. Drop out? Michelle is delusional and think she's winning Iowa.

I saw her on Cspan yesterday doing a scheduled "meet and greet" at some little restaurant in Iowa. Tens of people (probably 20-30, there were plenty of empty tables) attended, and it looked like most of the people were about as excited as if they were attending a funeral. I think most of them just wished she go away so they could finish eating.

Compare that to the crowds and excitement Ron Paul generates.

Enos's original statement said he would not support Ron Paul, but he didn't like that Sorenson was being smeared so he spoke up about it.
