After coming in second-to-last place in the Republican Iowa caucus, Congresswoman Michele Bachman is finally calling it quits.

The writing’s been on the wall for a while, but the staunch Tea Party politician’s been trying to stay in the race and had pinned all of her hopes to Iowa. Unfortunately, only five-percent of caucus goers thought she was the best candidate for the job.

Early Wednesday, Bachman held a press conference finally conceding defeat.

“Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, and so I have decided to stand aside,” Bachmann said in announcing the future of her campaign. She signaled that she has “no regrets” and is looking forward “to the next chapter in God’s plan.”

Despite dropping out of the race, Bachman has no plans of fading from the spotlight. She vowed to continue to fight President Obama’s “socialist policies” and further the Tea Party cause.

As for her failed presidential bid, Bachman told reporters, “I have no regrets.”

    The title gave me a good chuckle.

    Thank God! On the other hand, Romney may be the strongest Rep candidate, so I still have to hold my breath….

      I think he is the strongest candidate the GOP is offering; the others are no match and won’t win against Obama. Their poll numbers are too close.
      I doubted at first, but now I think Obama will be re-elected.

  • I’m surprised she made it to the caucus. At midnight Bachmann glossed over her sixth place finish. (She received 5 percent of the vote from the state that she was born in. I’d also like to point out that’s only 4 percent more than Jon Huntsman who didn’t spend anytime in Iowa what-so-ever.) At midnight, Bachmann was not defeated. She was full steam ahead. Her horrible showing in her native state was not an indictment on her bat-shit crazy, one talking point only campaign. It was just a sign she had more work to do. 12 hours later she’s out of the race yet still using her one trick pony to critique a President who would’ve made mince meat out of her in a debate had she been the nominee. (Could we have been so lucky)

  • It is good to finally see her drop out of the race. She had very little support from the start, and never spoke of anything she had to offer the country. I hope she never attempts a Presidential run again.
