Megyn Kelly interviews Bachmann traitor Kent Sorenson

Kent Sorenson is basically a Ron Paul supporter who was working for Bachmann because Paul’s campaign hadn’t started yet. But instead of sticking with Bachmann to the end, he decided to betray her campaign just days before the Iowa caucuses and go work for Ron Paul because he is now in the lead and Sorenson wanted to help him get over the top. That’s a pretty crappy thing to do if you ask me.

He also said Michele Bachmann and his former campaign manager Susan Geddes were lying even though they both say he told them (Geddes said multiple times) that he was offered money by the Paul campaign to switch. And to be honest, I just don’t believe him. For one, I just don’t believe Michele Bachmann would lie so blatantly in the audio they played of her. Secondly, it’s corroborated by his former campaign manager as reported by the NY Daily News today.



Here’s the interview:

It’s called politics.
It’s not for the faint of heart.
It’s why I love it.

100% lying. RS didn’t show the whole clip, I don’t believe. I’ll check the BAchman and Geddis in a minute. Ron Paul doing “the Democrat” – not answering, not looking up, head down, no acknowledgment to the camera or microphone: http://video.foxnews.com/v/1352513695001/bachmann-sounds-off-amid-iowa-campaign-turmoil/?playlist_id=87485

Funny how we are learning that Paul isn’t the man he claims to be. I just read another article where Paul said that he wrote the good parts of his newsletter but not bad parts and now paying a guy to jump ship for him. Ohhhh, that has to hurt the Paul fans. I’m sure as there is a hell that some Paul fans will provide some obscure links to some more obscure websites that explain everything Paul fans need to bark at people who think he’s a cult leader.

On a personal note I would like to add that this guy looks like a douche. Bald head and goatee. What’s up with when guys start to go bald they decide to shave their heads and grow facial hair

…”I believe she is…” – that’s a very weird statement. Body language changing – nervous, eyes shifting, facial tone, after the hard questions. He doesn’t want to confront Bachmann about it, and he isn’t appalled by it. Without sophisticated lie detector apparatus, I’d say 65% lying.

It’s unethical and it’s something that just isn’t done. If he was for Ron Paul, why would he even get on Bachmann’s campaign staff to begin with? That’s a conflict of interest and it’s like asking someone’s best friend how to defeat him.

He said, she said – does it make any difference at this point?

Isn’t this the way how people who run negative ads and denigrate other candidates – are expected to act?

Does anyone expect anything less?

I predict in the next month or so, Bachmann will endorse Mittens.

If she does not, will you publicly admit that you were wrong? I seriously doubt that she will do anything of that sort, because Mittens has no claim on her. I was not thrilled to see O’Donnell endorse Mittens, but at least she had a reason: he supported her when she won her primary in DE.

Who here that supports Ron Paul can honestly say that he has a good foreign policy? He is flat out an isolationist. This WILL put our country in danger. I don’t see how anyone with a head on their shoulders can support that. Please, someone, anyone who supports Ron Paul explain to me how that is a good idea? I don’t see anyone being able to defend his foreign policy. I’ll admit that I can agree with most of his economic ideas, but the bigger picture lies outside of our country and with the protection of our country.

First off, Congressmen Paul is NOT an isolationist. He believes in talking with other countries, trading with other countries but not entangling the US in alliances with them. That is not an isolationist. What you don’t understand is the concept of a “sovereign nation” and the difference between that and an isolationist. Congressmen Paul believes ALL nations are sovereign nations. All nations have the right to defend themselves and deal with their societies and economies as they see fit EVEN IF WE DON’T AGREE WITH IT. What you are proposing is for the US to be “interventionists” basically the exact opposite of an “isolationist”. Congressmen Paul is neither. Second, his foreign policy has never been put to the test. Obviously, he is not the President now nor has he ever been so how do you know that what he proposes will not work? All you have is speculation and what… Read more »

So assisting another country in aspects that they themselves are unable to deal with alone, i.e. protection from harm, all of a sudden we are interventionists? What I do have sir is common sense. Common sense tells me that letting the bad guys run rampant is not a good idea and a very dangerous one at best. If we need to “intervene” to keep Iran from getting a nuke, so be it. If we need to “intervene” to protect Israel, so be it. Call it what you want, but Ron Paul’s foreign policy would be a very dangerous gamble with our country. I would not be comfortable at all putting his policy “to the test”.

Then if you had your mind already made up why did you ask for an explanation? And you still have no proof of your statement. All you have is opinion. If you feel that intervention is the only answer, then are you prepared for perpetual war for the rest of the existence of the US and it’s adversaries? Are you prepared to commit lives, resources, and money for the rest of your life to fight this perpetual war? Are you prepared to send your children into combat to fight this war knowing full well that they might come back to you in a box? Do you know this is exactly what Osama bin Laden wanted for the US? He wanted us to engage in a war that will never end and destroy the US financially first. He did it to the USSR in Afghanistan and he’s doing it to us… Read more »

I will simply say this to you as well. I can totally agree to disagree, but all you have shown to me sir is your opinion as well. Where is the proof to back your statements? If you have some sort of crystal ball, please do share with the rest of the group. And, if Iran takes a nuke, and we are not backing Israel, I will say that we will not have to leave this country to find a box to lay in. We have been in the middle east now for at least 9 yrs. You are telling me that is what caused our financial woes. Wow….Why is it that it only took less than 3 years then to double our debt? If the wars were truly the cause, wouldn’t it make sense that the number would have doubled more slowly than they did? Of course I had… Read more »

My opinion (as you put it) is drawn directly from what is happening right now. They are the next logical steps that could be taken by our government if another 9/11 style attack or another underwear or Times Square bomber attack takes place. They are based on fact more so than you’re statements which have no historical basis whatsoever; whereas mine do. The security measures we go thru at airports now is DIRECTLY RELATED to 9/11. The removed of shoes, the new x-ray machine technologies are DIRECTLY RELATED to terrorist bombing attempts. The inflation we’ve seen this past year is DIRECTLY RELATED (in part) to war spending. The statements by the dictators of countries like Iran, Afghanstan, and others against US foreign policy are DIRECTLY RELATED to years of interventionism. The 9/11 commission report sighted bin Laden as saying it was our occupation of their holy land during the first… Read more »

First off sir, I don’t think I have attacked you directly. So in doing so towards me, you have already lost your credibility. “The security measures we go thru at airports now is DIRECTLY RELATED to 9/11. The removed of shoes, the new x-ray machine technologies are DIRECTLY RELATED to terrorist bombing attempts…” Are you saying we shouldn’t attempt to protect ourselves from possible future attacks? That is what I got from this statement. “The inflation we’ve seen this past year is DIRECTLY RELATED (in part) to war spending. The statements by the dictators of countries like Iran, Afghanstan, and others against US foreign policy are DIRECTLY RELATED to years of interventionism.” Again, this is an opinion unless you have facts to back this up. Using dictator’s statements to back up your statements is like using the devil to vouch for you in court. I can’t believe you would actually… Read more »

Ron Paul has a twisted view of foreign policy. Ron Paul said that the NDAA bill is a bad thing, but when it was time to vote, as the People of Texas pay him to do, he did NOT vote on that bill, at all! When there were bills for funding some things for the military, and the military veteran, for example: 1./ H Res 500 V.A. funding, no vote. 2./ HR2433 Veterans Opportunity to Work Act, no vote. 3./ To Establish a “Distinguished Flying Cross” National Memorial at March Field, no vote. 4./ HR Res 13 Reaffirming that “In God We Trust” as the Official Motto of the U.S., no vote. Gee, not so quick to reaffirm the national motto! Hmmm, might he be an atheist? Gee, no money for commemorating USAF “Distinguished Flying Cross” medal earners? (Kiddies, you almost have to die in flight, to get this!) Gee,… Read more »

Let’s start with just the NDAA — National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. There are two sections of that bill that received an enormous amount of publicity. Ron Paul did vote and voted against it (Roll call 375) that bill, and among the reasons he voted against it likely include the two sections of the bill that received so much publicity. Who knows? On one bill and the two resolutions you mention, Bachmann also didn’t vote. Why are you not mentioning that? * H.RES. 500 – Roll call 938, December 16, 2011 * H.CON.RES. 13 – Roll call 816, November 1, 2011 * HR 320 – Roll call 801, October 24, 2011 So does that mean Bachmann might be an atheist as well? Yeah, I didn’t think so either. That leaves, HR 2433. Roll call was on Oct 12, 2011. Why did he not vote on it? Perhaps he wasn’t… Read more »

Yes I’m aware that I’m not comparing apples to apples. I could’ve easily said “what if someone left Gingrich’s campaign to join Santorum?”, but as this discussion is about someone a person leaving Bachmann’s campaign to join Ron Paul, the obvious place to start was to propose the opposite. I’m pretty sure that if everyone who frequents this blog were to respond, there’d be some who would be indifferent (such as me), but I’m sure I’d start seeing the “anyone but Ron Paul” mentality manifest very clearly.

Here’s the question NOBODY has asked about that claim: how many of those making contributions are claiming active-duty status when they’re not, and how many of those in our military don’t give political contributions at all? To say that seventy-odd percent of contributors who are saying that they’re in the military are giving to Paul is dishonest. More than half of active duty troops don’t give anything to political candidates, period. Most of them cannot afford it.

Jim, if the budget is the only thing you support him for, you are shortsighted at best. The man wants to start up trade with nations whose human rights records are deplorable (Cuba, Iran, etc.). You can’t just get along with everybody in the world. It doesn’t work that way. If that’s the way he’s going to look at it, we might as well abolish prisons and let all the bad guys loose – it’s not our business to tell them how to live, right?

What a total douchebag. I wonder who he keeps looking at off camera, his eyes are shifting and darting constantly throughout the whole interview.

If Benedict Arnold wanted to help Dr. Kevorkian why didn’t he just do that? Dr. Kevorkian, like Mittens, has been running for years. Benedict Arnold knew Dr. Kevorkian would be running sooner or later so why the knife in the back to Bachmann? This was planned to go down just this way to cause the most damage and embarrassment to Bachmann. I’m not a big supporter of Bachmann, but she didn’t deserve this.

Wait till this guy figures out Dr. Kevorkian isn’t going to win either. I hope everybody else hangs up the phone when he calls looking for work.

Bachmann and her people have a history of making false accusations.

Before this occurrence, she accused the Gingrich campaign of paying money for Tea Party support in South Carolina, an accusation which turned out to be false.

Like it or not, Sorenson saw that Bachmann could not win in Iowa. He does not want Romney to win the caucuses. For the reasons that he explained, he decided to support Paul, who has a realistic chance of beating Romney.

In the circumstances, one is more inclined to accept Sorenson’s word than that of Bachmann’s and Geddes.

I’ve been reading the conservative blogs about this today and, as usual, the Beta Male Dickless Wonders are proving to be true to form. Man, oh man, how they all go out of their way to give everyone the benefit of the doubt except Michele Bachmann. No, she has this HISTORY, you see, of lying. No matter what a scumbag this Sorenson creep obviously is, oh we gotta give him and that low life Ron Paul the benefit of the doubt. Why would they lie? Here’s why Ron Paul would want to hurt Michele Bachmann a week before the Iowa caucases. 1) She made a fool out of him during the last debate. 2) Ron Paul is a hateful, spiteful ass*hole who hates conservatives in general and women in particular. Oh, I have no doubt at all that he set out to get Bachmann before they even left that stage.… Read more »

Hitching his car to the Ron Paul train is going to end very badly….

Even in the 1:1,000,000,000 chance that Paul were to be the Republican Pres. nominee, there is absolutely no way Paul could ever beat Obama…hell could freeze over and Paul would still not get elected POTUS.

My buttocks have a better chance of beating Obama than Paul does.
