The Bachmann presidential campaign is pretty much over now. She’s dropping fast and now her entire New Hampshire staff has resigned. Rats from a sinking ship.
Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann’s campaign was showing signs of meltdown on Friday when her entire campaign team in New Hampshire quit.
The half-dozen staffers expressed frustration with the way she is conducting her campaign in New Hampshire, where the first of the Republican nomination primaries is scheduled to be held and which can play a decisive role in the final outcome.
The exodus of her team in New Hampshire follows the departure of other members of her staff elsewhere over the last few months, the most high-profile being the veteran strategist Ed Rollins.
Bachmann, who is well to the right on many social issues, was criticised by Rollins for some of her more controversial comments and he also disclosed she was in financial trouble.Other ex-staffers have complained privately about her allegedly dictatorial management style, saying she has a tendency to treat internal criticism as a show of disloyalty.
There’s a shock. This is what happens when you think you have a direct line to God — you think you’re infallible and anyone who questions you is questioning God and therefore must be dismissed.
