Bachmann gracefully steps Aside – Perry On to South Carolina

Michelle Bachmann, who came in sixth in the Iowa caucuses, stepped aside gracefully.  In an emotional statement she said she had no regrets but will continue to fight to defeat Barrack Obama and his policies based on socialism.

While Bachmann did not endorse another candidate she devoted much of her time to Obama Care and its strain on the economy.  She particularly stressed the funding of abortions.

“Obamacare represents the largest expansion of entitlement spending in our country’s history, and has now become the playground of left wing social engineering where the right will always lose every battle and the left has already been given the formula for passing their agenda.” said Bachmann calling Obamacare’s repeal the “core of her conviction.”

“While a congressman by title, a politician never have I been or ever wish to be.” she said.

Rick Perry, who had earlier said that he was heading to Texas to reassess his campaign, has hinted that he will continue on to North Carolina and will likely also campaign in New Hampshire and attend the debates there next weekend.  In a tweet Perry said “Here we come South Carolina.”

Perry only took 10% of the vote in Iowa, despite spending $4 Million in tv ads.  Last night, in a statement Perry said that he would have to reassess his campaign.  His aides said that the  campaign has the money to campaign in South Carolina but that they needed to assess if it was worth it.

“With the voters’ decision tonight in Iowa, I’ve decided to return to Texas to assess the results of

tonight’s caucus, determine whether there is a path forward for myself in this race.  I’m going to decide the best path forward, but I want to tell you, there has been no greater joy in my life than to be able to share with the people of Iowa and of this country that there is a model to take this country forward and it is in the great state of Texas.”

It appears that with the exception of the debates in New Hampshire, Perry will skip the state and put an all out effort into South Carolina.
