"Bachmann Shakes The Etch-A-Sketch For Romney, Undoes All Of Her Attacks On Him"

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) endorsed Mitt Romney yesterday despite leveling withering criticisms on him during the primary.

To her credit, however, the congresswoman is a much better surrogate for the presumed GOP nominee than Newt Gingrich — who said just yesterday that Romney “said things at time that weren’t true” — completely reversing many of her charges against Romney in an interview with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren last night:

BACHMANN NOW: “He’s standing full square behind the pro-life cause. He believes in life.”
BACHMANN THEN: “He has been very inconsistent on his positions. He has been both sides of the abortion issue.”

BACHMANN NOW: “He believes in marriage between one woman and one man. He stands for that.”
BACHMANN THEN: Romney signed “189 same-sex marriage licenses.” In December: “He has been…on both sides of the issue of same-sex marriage.”

BACHMANN NOW: “He stands for the full scale repeal of Obamacare.”
BACHMANN THEN: “It’s highly unlikely that he will ever truly repeal [Obamacare].”
