Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Tea Party icon and one of the few people in Congress to stand up against the threats facing the country has decided to step down. Michele Bachmann announced today that she will not seek reelection for her seat in the House of Representatives.

“The law limits anyone from serving as president of the United States for more than eight years, and in my opinion, well, eight years is also long enough for an individual to serve as a representative for a specific Congressional district,” Bachmann said in her announcement.

“I find it sad and tragic,” Glenn said in reaction to the news. “They have accused her of everything.They have never come up with anything that’s ever stuck to her, never proven anything, none of these accusations, and destroyed her and destroyed her image, destroyed her honor, destroyed her business.”

Glenn pointed out that it wasn’t just the Democrats who attacked her, but fellow Republicans because she would not play ball with the Establishment.
