Outgoing Minnesota congresswoman and former GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann struck back at former Bush adviser outspoken Republican political commentator Karl Rove’s criticism of her, expressing her belief that the much-maligned talking head is not representative of her party.

“The base of our party is not where Karl Rove is, to be honest with you,” Bachmann told radio host Laura Ingraham earlier today. “I think that perhaps he wants to be the conscience of the Republican Party.”

Previously, Rove had lauded Bachmann’s decision not to seek reelection in Minnesota.

“Michele Bachmann was the chairman of the congressional Tea Party Caucus and in that position did nothing,” Rove had told ABC News.

The 2012 White House aspirer, however, did not take the jabs seriously.

“It is bizarre,” Bachmann said. “On one hand, the tea party was doing too much. And now they’re saying they’re not doing enough.”

“I want to be involved in a big way in the issues of the day, and we’ll see how that’s going to turn out,” she said. “I don’t think I’ve been involved for this many years in this to just go away.”
