I don’t think that I need add anything to this one.
Tim’s site is here.
You know, I’m not sold on Pawlenty as my guy, I have a hard time believing any Republican that could get elected in a blue state is really all that conservative, but in a year where ‘generic, unnamed Republican’ beats Obama like a drum, but specific names don’t, maybe we need to run the closest thing to that we can find. Which this year would be Pawlenty.

Skip, you made a great point. I don’t know much about Pawlenty, but do we really want a blue-state Gov as our nominee? I can think of one reason we should think about it. A blue state Gov (they must be a popular and successful one) will have Experience selling conservative solutions to Liberal voters. That might be useful if we want “Bi-Partisan” fixes to the titanic struggle we are about to undertake. I could care less about partisanship. I just think, if we are going to start tinkering with entitlements, we are going to need an awful lot of people agreeing with the process or we might see here in the US what is happening in the UK.
I don’t care if our guy (or gal) comes from a blue state or a red state; what I want is someone who is 1) not just conservative, but A conservative, and 2) has steel in their spine. Because cleaning up after Obama and Pelosi, not to mention at least 50 years of governmental growth, is going to require a president who both believes in what he or she is doing, and who has the courage to back up their convictions with action. Remember what Alexander the Great said, it’s better to have an army of sheep led by a lion than an army of lions led by a sheep.
Pawlenty’s new ad is very effective. It zeros in on the failed leadership of Obama. Tim Pawlenty is one of the few in the ’12 race whose ego is not over-inflated, too.I think he would work very hard for the good of the country. Of course we would have to have control of both houses to get it done. I think this election perhaps more than any other requires us to choose someone who has governed effectively and conservatively even in a blue state. Pawlenty served the people of MN well.
