From today's Morning Hot Dish:
Ed Rollins, Michele Bachmann’s erstwhile campaign manager, took another shot at her Monday on Fox News, telling host Shepard Smith that her presidential campaign was in disarray.
“It was a mess,” Rollins said, being prodded somewhat by Smith. “I didn’t think it was going to work, and I didn’t want to spend six months in Iowa, basically, at my age.”
Later, Rollins told ABC News that Bachmann has “run out of money and ideas” and will not win in Iowa. Asked on Fox News how Bachmann reacted to his departure this fall, the veteran GOP strategist said: “She was fine. She basically understood. We’ve had a nice relationship since.” Except for when they both said they wished they had Googled each other before they began their association.
