More candid talk from Rollins on Bachmann campaign

News

With friends like Ed Rollins, who needs opposition research? As one of Michele Bachmann's top advisers in her campaign, Rollins has been publicly cutting loose on the candidate lately. Rollins first criticized Bachmann for linking the HPV vaccine to mental retardation, saying "You don't make a broad statement like that," before checking it out.

Then, appearing on MSNBC Monday, Rollins gave the inside status of Bachmann's campaign, saying it isn't setup to move past Iowa should she not win the state primary. "Right now she's competing hard in Iowa. She doesn't have the ability or the resources to go beyond Iowa at this point in time where [Rick] Perry and [Mitt] Romney with lots of money could go on to South Carolina, Arizona, Florida and other places," he said.
