Rep. Michele Bachmann will not be joining Texas Gov. Rick Perry among failed presidential candidates willing to back former House Speaker Newt Gingrich's campaign.
The Minnesota Republican put out a statement to South Carolina press on Thursday morning, moments before Perry announced he was leaving the race. Ben Szobody of the Greenville News picked it up in full and highlighted the most important parts (emphasis ours).

For me, these past weeks have been filled with much prayer and personal reflection - which has provided some clarity. Ultimately, I recognize that endorsing a candidate is the responsible thing to do.
But it is far more responsible to ensure that candidate is one I can support with a strong conviction knowing, without any doubt, that they protect our values and have the ability to restore our nation's greatness. With some doubt still present, I am not yet prepared to offer my endorsement, but look forward to doing so in the coming weeks.
However, through this exhaustive process of consideration, it was strikingly obvious that one candidate could not be less acceptable to be our Party's nominee. He lacks the poise, experience and moral fiber to represent our principles and values. That candidate is Newt Gingrich.
In sum, our nation is in desperate need of a proven and moral leader who can point us back in the right direction - not a desperately flawed candidate like Newt Gingrich who has only proven he cannot lead.

Michele Bachmann Says She Will Not Endorse Newt Gingrich?

Who cares what this shrill, batshît insane lady thinks? She's just a much a scumbag as Spewt Gingrich and Flip-Flop Romney.

It's hard to believe that the party of Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt has been reduced to this ridiculous clown show.

It does matter a bit who Michelle Bachmann endorses. It would have mattered a lot more if she had endorsed somebody immediately after dropping out. But I agree with her assessment of Newt Gingrich wholeheartedly.

I have a feeling Newt Gingrich is breathing a sigh of relief over this news.

At least we don't outsource for our Presidents.

Say what you want about her but she has some pull. Same with Palin. People may not like them but they do have influence.

But I would bet her and Sanitorium (I mean Santorum) would get along just fine.
