fox eats palin-tea

Politicususa: Tim Pawlenty was on Fox News Sunday today, but instead of getting softballs tossed his way like Sarah Palin did last week, he was hammered for his economic plan. It looks like Pawlenty is not one of the FNC chosen ones.

At a time when Republicans are introducing non-economic economic plans on a regular basis, Pawlenty’s plan is so ridiculous that it is attracting ridicule from many conservatives, but what a difference a week makes on Fox News Sunday.

Seven days ago, Sarah Palin was on the show and given the fawning drooling treatment by Chris Wallace.

    You’re right Chips, what a contrast, bigtime!

    I love the look on his face at the end when Chris informs him it would mean a bigger deficit. Deer in headlights!

      or just plain clueless.

      that’s the look you get when you ask Conservatives follow up questions. I don’t trust Wallace and I think there is an attempt here to disqualify Pawlenty but if more journalists and anchors came with facts and follow up questions, we would have a much better congress/America/world.

        i’m not sure what Walllace’s agenda is, but more “journalists” should follow his lead with all of the gop candidates. Look how easy it was to stump Pawlenty, none of them would be able to come up with any answers to follow-up questions. It didn’t even take Wallace much work to come up with his question, and we all know how lazy the msm is.

    Isn’t it pretty amazing how this once seemingly reasonable man has morphed into something unrecognizable right before our eyes!

      Unfortunately, Huntsman has started morphing also.

        These guys aren’t morphing. It’s who they are and always were.

            Totally agree – if they were serious about working for this country, they would start by acknowledging that President Obama has put forward very easy to understand, common sense, practical and fair ideas to solve some very complex problems tha thave been decades in the making – and they would call for a cancellation of the 2012 elections, since they don’t have any better ideas. Spend the next six years just working to make the country better, and then go full tilt in 2016, when the big problems are solved and they can’t do too much damage. They are liars and crooks – most, if not all, of them.

        WhT is remarkable is, the GOP and the MSM are still pandering to the tea party agenda. Even though the overall approval raring of the tea party is in the twenties!

        The GOP knows this, so before they start blaming these tea party governors for the economy they put out bullshit front page stories in the Tampa tribune: governor Scott gets florid back to work!

        You know, they are basically saying it’s Obama it’s Obama, not me!

    I think it’s because there is no way in Hades that Chris Wallace or many others will take Palin serious enough to vote for her – she’s just window dressing that they can afford to toy with. Chris did a marvelous job of catching TPaw off guard to where he was sucking in air and when he recovered, he sidestepped the question.

    I love it pie-in-the-sky numbers and then says “I believe in America, and if you don’t buy my junk numbers than you hate America like the libruls do”.

    Kudos to Me4Obama for the Palintea tagline, it’s GREAT! I think we will see the rethugs continue to disparage one another. They have NO message other than they hate President Obama. They are offering the same policies that gwb used to destroy the economy and ruin our reputation around the world. Other than bashing the President they have nothing to do but to bash one another. The Dems should make it clear that the policies being offered by the current string of rethug candidates would have been embraced by gwb.

    And back to dumb Herman Cain. Remember when he said he would only sign bills that were three pages long? Well, of course, he’s had to retract that stupid statement. These folks are nothing but clowns.

    “In an interview with Hotsheet Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain retreated from his claim that he would only sign bills that are three pages or less.

    After it was pointed out to him that defense appropriations bills, the Civil Rights Act, the Patriot Act and the Fair Tax proposal at the center of his economic policy all exceed three pages, Cain told CBSNews.com Senior Political Reporter Brian Montopoli, “Brian, that was an exaggeration.”

    Well, it’s not an exaggeration for me to say Cain will never, ever have to worry about signing any bills. Clown.

    Just in:
    Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Lieberman says we should use military force in syria! Syria, you say???

    Sure, sure Lindsey, if you say so. And no push back from bob Schaffer. Crimony! If a democrat ever said something like that…

      Awww poor McInsane and Lieberman the Turncoat. They’re trying to remain relevant.

      They want to use military force in syria, but congress wants to have President Obama censured because he didn’t get their approval, even though he wouldn’t have to because it was a UN resolution backed by NATO, and other Arabian states.

      These people are crazy. Does anybody even care what this trio has to say anymore.

  11. June 12, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    And then Lindsey said we should only bring home 3k troops from afhanistan, you know, bc we are on offense blah balh blah!!!

    War monger. This guy loves war!

      Lindsey also had the rethuglican’t establishment turn their backs on him and is trying to find relevance. Such a same. He used to be a contender. Can’t you just see the 3 of them brainstorming on the good old days and how to get them back again. Unfortunately this is the kind of stuff they come up with. Sad really.
