3. Former N.J. Gov. Christine Todd Whitman: “The sort of unfounded attack unleashed by Congresswoman Bachmann and her [colleagues] brings back painful memories of a low point in our history.”

4. Bachmann's former presidential campaign manager, Ed Rollins: "She sometimes has difficulty with her facts, but this is downright vicious and reaches the late Senator Joe McCarthy level."

5. Former Fla. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite: “Michele means well but she sometimes doesn’t let proven facts get in the way of a possibility of having national television coverage.”

6. N.C. Sen. Lindsey Graham: "I don’t know what their motivations are, but clearly it says more about them than it does her."


7. Ariz. Sen. John McCain: “These attacks have no logic, no basis, and no merit and they need to stop. They need to stop now.”
