Michele Bachmann Announces She Will Not Run Again In 2014

Video:  Michele Bachmann Announces She Will Not Run Again In 2014

Michele Bachmann has announced that she will not be running for re-election in 2014. 

Every American should be saddened at this announcement, no matter what your politics, because she is an honorable, tough, courageous and principled person and you always know what she thinks… a breath of fresh air in politics on their side of the aisle.

Joshua Pundit: The usual jackasses will bray and cavort, since they’ve hated her for years. After all, it’s what they do, and it certainly doesn’t concern me and I doubt it concerns Rep. Bachmann.

But if you listen carefully to what she’s saying and how she phrases things, I don’t think we’ve heard the last of her at all. And that is a very good thing, seeing how we need honest and courageous public servants.

She could be planning a run for the Senate, and not necessarily as a Republican. Given the ongoing war by the RINO establishment against conservative Republicans and the mancrush between Chris Christie and President Obama, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the 2016 match up featured Chris Christie as ‘a new type of Democrat’ after a party switch versus Jeb Bush for the Republicans.

If that happens, rest assured you’ll see a credible third party emerge as the GOP fades away like the Whigs.

Is she the latest victim of an IRS-type-gate or is she just tired?!?

Mark Steyn’s homage for Michele Bachmann on the EIB:

“Michele Bachmann is like a lot of successful Republican women. She took a ton of heat about everything. There’s something about successful Republican women that so-called liberal feminists seem to absolutely loathe.” -Steyn

“At her best she could have been America’s Thatcher.” –Steyn – Author of America Alone

Michele Bachmann Wont Seek Re Election

TheBlaze/TV: Before dawn on Wednesday morning, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann announced that she will not be seeking re-election in 2014. The news was released via Rep. Bachmann’s Facebook page:

To my most cherished friends and immensely loyal supporters. I have prepared a personal video just for you that I hope you will view right now. I wanted to share this important breaking news about the decision I have made with you first.

The post included an 8:30 video from Bachmann explaining her decision and responding to speculation that if she ran again, she might lose. It also included her reminiscing about her accomplishments, from fighting Obamacare to raising the alarm on radical Islam:

Ms. Bachmann did not rule out a return to the world of politics in the future, saying “There is no future option or opportunity, be it directly in the political arena or otherwise, that I won’t be giving serious consideration if it can help save and protect our great nation.” But she did effectively “term limit” herself, stating:

“The law limits anyone from serving as president of the United States for more than eight years, and in my opinion, well, eight years is also long enough for an individual to serve as a representative for a specific Congressional district.”

“My decision was not influenced by any concerns about my being re-elected,” Bachmann said. Later, she added that “This decision was not impacted in any way by the recent inquiries into the activities of my former presidential campaign.”

Bachmann also let the left-leaning outlets in the mainstream media know that she anticipated her announcement would receive a “detrimental spin.”

“I take being the focus of their attention and disparagement as a true compliment of my public service effectiveness,” she said.

Sean Hannity:  The attacks on conservative women like Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin are more than most people could take. The left’s treatment of these and other conservative women is and has been appalling and the loss of Michele Bachmann in Congress, an honest hard-fighting politician, is a loss to us all!!

This is a breaking story. Updates will be added.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
