Michele Bachmann will quit in 2014

Michele Bachmann Iowa

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN)

After a failed run for the Presidency in 2012, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann continued to push her extremist agenda on the American public with the same reckless abandon she had since President Obama was elected in 2008. From my perspective she was the last TEA-Party extremist I would have expected to leave congress. I was wrong. In a video released on her website this morning, Bachmann announced that she will not be seeking reelection in 2014.

Her failed bid for the Presidency last year did place her congressional seat at possible risk, and democrats have been raising money to boot her out in 2014. Her announcement today improves the prospects for the Republicans to keep her seat in their hands, as the lightning rod for democratic opposition will be removed from the field of play.

My guess is that Mrs. Bachman will go the way of Sarah Palin and gain a lucrative, but short-lived stint as a Fox News contributor once she leaves office.

Here is her announcement:

    Wall Street – projected to win in 2014.

    The Wall Street Republican Michele Bachman is retiring.
    The Wall Street Democrat, Jim Graves, makes no mention of reinstating the Glass-Steagall Act, HR 129.
    Jim Graves, the slick politician, (political coward) makes no mention about the Senate amnesty now, – enforcement when Hell freezes over, – S. 744 Bill.
    The yet unknown Republican challenger will be more of the same.

    Can you honestly say that she didn’t bring all that on herself?
