Just two weeks after winning the Iowa straw poll, “there is a growing chorus of criticism” about the way Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has conducted her presidential campaign in the state, with the organizer of a recent event she attended saying people are “kinda pissed” at her. Judd Saul, an organizer of the Blackhawk County Lincoln Day Dinner fundraiser in Waterloo, Bachmann’s hometown, told FoxNews.com that while Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) “sat with people, talked with people,” Bachmann “acted like a rock star, refused to eat dinner with us.” “If Michele Bachmann is the hometown girl, from Waterloo, she should dine with us,” he added. Can the “Barack Obama rock star crap.” Meanwhile, the chairman of the Pottawattamie County Republican Party said Bachmann “hasn’t been making herself available.” (HT: Iowa Independent)
