Floundering in the polls and increasingly written-off as second-tier, the once-promising presidential bid of Minnesota Rep. and Tea Party firebrand Michele Bachmann has fallen so far that even her most loyal constituency is telling her to throw in the towel — and accusing her of exploiting the cause for personal gain.

“In Bachmann’s case, it is clear that the campaign has become less about reform and more about her personal effort to stay relevant and sell books; a harsh commentary, but true,” American Majority President Ned Ryun writes. “It’s not about tea party values or championing real plans to solve real problems. While other campaigns are diving into the substance, the supposed tea party candidate Bachmann is sticking to thin talking points and hanging on for dear life.”

    Michelle Bachman much like the tea party itself is increasingly becoming irrelevant. The mood of “buyers remorse” for the republican/tea party mid term sweep is growing. Good bye and good riddance to both!!

    Wouldn’t you think that the quality of candidates who have been lionized, only to fall out of favor, would reflect on the general quality of the Tea Party candidates? If your “favorites” have turned out to be incoherent, illogical, off-base, and otherwise just plain silly, wouldn’t you stop to wonder if just maybe there was something wrong with your goals and ideals? At least it’s entertaining to watch. I can’t wait to see who is the next “anybody but Romney.

    the Tea Party is relevant because their values are American….but Michelle you can’t win when you look like a shrimp compared to the men you stand beside….it’s much like Dukakis when he put on a helmet while standing in a military tank….he looked silly and not Presidential and so do you…..
