Michelle Bachmann To Endorse Mitt Romney After Saying “He Can’t Beat Obama”
Michele Bachmann dropped out of the GOP primary race 119 days ago and now she will finally endorse presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Bachmann and Romney will share the stage on Thursday to make the announcement.
While Michele is sure to talk about all of Mitt Romney’s selling points in his battle against Barack Obama, you may recall that shortly after dropping out of the GOP race Michelle Backmann told told ABC News’s Jonathan Karl
“He cannot beat Obama. It’s not going to happen.”
That comment occurred just one day before the Iowa caucuses and during the same interview Bachmann said she was hoping for divine intervention, looking for a miracle to defeat Mitt Romney and pick up her campaigns pace.
When specifically asked if President Obama would lose to Mitt Romney the GOP contender at the time revealed:
”No, he cannot beat Obama because his policy is the basis for Obamacare. The signature issue of Obama is Obamacare. You can’t have a candidate who has given the blueprint for Obamacare. It’s too identical. It’s not going to happen. We have to have a candidate, a bold distinct candidate in the likeness of Ronald Reagan.”
It will be interesting to see on Thursday if Michelle Bachmann addresses her previous ObamaCare comments or if she chooses to direct her endorsement more towards a general “we must coalesce around Romney as a group” type of approach to her endorsement.
In the meantime, was Michelle Bachmann months ago trying to compare herself to Ronald Reagan?
