Michele Bachmann Says She's Amazing, But Not Seeking Reelection: VIDEO

M_bachmann

In a new video, Michele Bachmann says that an 8-year term in the House is enough and she won't be seeking reelection even though she's perfect in every way possible.

The decision, she also notes, has nothing to do with  an ongoing ethics investigation into misconduct during her 2012 presidential campaign:

"It was clearly understood that compliance with all rules and regulations was an absolute necessity for my presidential campaign. And I have no reason to believe that that was not the case."

Looking directly into the correct camera, Bachmann says she'll continue to fight for family values, and all the things she hates about Obama.

"I fully anticipate the mainstream liberal media to put a detrimental spin on my decision not to seek a fifth term. Since I was first elected to Congress many years ago they always seem to find a dishonest way to disparage me. But I take being the focus of their attention and disparagement as a true compliment of my public service effectiveness."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP....

  4. Minnesota passing the marriage equality amendment may have broken her spirit.

  5. "Bachmann says she'll continue to fight for family values, and all the things she hates about Obama."

    Translation of summation: I'm gotten a gig as a lobbyist.

  10. Either she knows at least one of the ongoing investigations is going to strike oil, or else some Marcus-related horror is going to surface.

  11. Yup, Profe, that's my guess too.

    And the fact that after showing her ass for another 4 years, she doesn't have a Minnesota snowball's chance in hell to get re-eclected.

  12. Hey, Michele...our doe-eyed babe...don't let the Congressional screen door hit you on the ass on the way out. And, for God's sake, turn off the damn light!

    P.S.

    Kisses to Marcus, too!

  16. She had already started running re-election ads in her district. This decision is very sudden and it is the opposite of what she had been planning for a while now. I would bet that someone finally got the real goods on this "christian."

  19. Give me a flipping break. Does she really think anyone, besides the far-right whackos, are really buying her excuse as to why she's not running.

    B-U-S-T-E-D.

    "No, I'll just give up my power because... um, because... because, um, I want to."

  21. As long as she just goes away. Bye-bye Bachmann!

  22. Perhaps one of Jimmy "La Saliva's" pals can answer this question for all of us "Libruls"

    How is it that the GOP, the party of so-called "Personal Responsibility" has no problem with another one of their top tier TP darlings ditchng her office to avoid a full out FBI investigation?

    Any Log Cabin Republicans wishing to swoop in with a defense of another quitter?

    Anyone...

    We all know what TP stands for; Toilet Paper.

    Please ... bye.

    her party's nomination to run as president.

  25. Everybody in Congress has gotten sick and tired of her nonsense and has turned their backs on her. What took them so long?

    I expect her to turn up on the 700 Club any day now.
