Michelle ReaganPalinThatcherTebow has finally said something rooted in reality–she’s “stepping aside.” She’s been a poseur and certainly a Romney stalking horse from the start. She’s at serious risk of completely losing her House district to re-districting and clearly this entire exercise has been an effort to secure a job at the next white House. Let’s see what she does now.
A last place finish in the Iowa caucuses will mark Michele Bachmann’s last stand as a presidential candidate.
The Minnesota congresswoman called it quits Wednesday during a press conference in West Des Moines, saying “Last night the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, so I have decided to stand aside.”
The news comes on the heels of a dismal performance at the Iowa caucuses on Tuesday.
Bachmann garnered just 5% of the vote-dead, last among the candidates who actively campaigned in the Hawkeye State.
Meanwhile, fellow GOP contender Rick Perry seemed to change course Wednesday on his decision to bail from the race — announcing on Twitter that he was headed to South Carolina.
