Bachmann’s presidential qualifications questioned by dean of her alma mater
Rep. Michele Bachmann earned her law degree from televangelist Pat Robertson’s Regent University, but that doesn’t necessarily mean her alma mater backs her possible presidential bid. The dean of the university’s Pat Robertson School of Government thinks her response to President Obama’s State of the Union address was unwise and stated that she’s too inexperienced to make it to the Oval Office just yet.
Dr. Charles W. Dunn, dean of Regent University’s Robertson School of Government, spoke with the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow, and said he thinks that Bachmann is “articulate, attractive, and bright” but her tea party response to Obama was “unwise.”
“As I look at Congresswoman Bachmann in this light: those members who are outsiders often become flamethrowers, and they lose their ability to influence much of what happens in the Congress,” Dunn said.
“The tea party and the Republican Party, if they divide, they will harm one another,” said Dunn, who has served as staffer for Republican members of Congress. “The Republican Party needs the tea party in order to mount a serious campaign against President Obama. The tea party needs the Republican Party in order to achieve its goals.”
Bachmann has hinted at a possible run for the Republican nomination for president in 2012.
OneNewsNow notes that Dunn thinks Bachmann “is too inexperienced to be seriously considered for the Oval Office that soon.”
