    The frustration expressed here (especially by Roann) really makes this ad effective. The message here is “If Tiny Tim wins, God HELP us, everyone!”

      Yup – I like this ad. I wish they had used the quote from this post as the final quote “I don’t know why this guy thinks he can run for President”. And you know that if the Dems are saying it, then there are plenty of Repubs who are feeling it, too. Eventually, you have to pay for tax cuts.

      It also needs to go very LOCAL, as in to Minnesota where the state is reeling in Pawlenty’s wake and the government is a few days into its shutdown. These Minnesotans need to be speaking to their fellow Minnesotans about this common GOP scheme of shifting taxes around to small businesses and middle/lower class families.

    This twitter picture is where gaddafi forces were fought to a standstill in misrata:


    And in the western part if the country, they are now 35 km from tripoli. Capturing small towns and moving forward.

    He has no shame, combined with a huge ego and a heaping side order of delusion. That’s why he thinks he can run.

      Who would know this Pawlenty guy better than the people he was Governor of? They know how he messed up the state of Minnesota, and the condition he left it in.

    Brilliant video. It needs to be played on every local tv station in Minnesota to remind them that the unfortunate mess they’re in now is because of Pawlenty and congressional repubs. He used shyster methods to “balance” the budget, but still left the state with more than $6 billion in debt. He never raised taxes for the uber wealthy but made sure that middle and working class folks were screwed with rising property and state taxes. While he was pandering to his rich buddies, the bridge in Minneapolis collapsed killing many. if proper investments had been made in infrastructure, that tragedy would never have occurred. He and Michele Bachmann spoke out virulently against stimulus funds, yet he covertly took those same funds and Bachmann had the audacity to show up at an event where stimulus funds had been used to save an agency. Hypocrites! the lot of them. As the race gets going, all their lies will be hung out in the sun for all to see.

    Minnesota used to be such a progressive, positive state. They led the way in medical research, nutrition, workers’ rights, education…Pawlenty really turned that success around! He and Perry have a lot in common. Truly awful governors.

    Does anybody truly believe Tim Pawlenty will even come in a distant 3rd place? I’m sure when his dismal job as Governor of Minnesota is examined it’ll stop his already abysmal non-showing. Even his idiotic “Obomny-care” bit was DOA by the 1st GOPer Debate….I guess one of the bigger whigs hat chastized him for ever mentioning Mitt’s little foray into Universal Healthcare. But there it is as cute as a damn Chinese Baby all fat and sassy and very, very healthy. By the time of the election the Massachusetts Health Care will be like a 800 lb. Gorrilla that the GOP can’t ignore or refute its success. Plus this latest Republican temper tantrum that has everyone concerned because it shows a total disregard for the national and world economic well being.
