How much damage to the state is this man willing to do to further his own political agenda? This is politics at its' very worst.

want elected officials to raise their taxes and take away their hard earned money. It is fantastic that since Tim Pawlenty has been in office, Minnesota is no longer one of the top ten states for taxing it's residents. If Minnesota was in the top ten, then our state government is too big. How hard is that to understand? So glad it's been 24 years without a democrat to tax me to death.

It's too bad that Minnesota doesn't have the first caucus, it would be nice to see his own resident throw him under the bus. I guess Iowa will have to do it for us.

This guy is off his rocker... no wonder so many across the country in the latest poll have him dead LAST.

This is the evil Nancy Pelosi. And sure enough, there's Betty McCollum, opportunist who does not have the interests of Minnesota's 4th District at heart, and she's already introduced a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives to establish the public option in ObamaCare. Tim Pawlenty, difficult as this is, has it exactly right. We have to REJECT ObamaCare, a PLACEHOLDER that was cynically put in there by Betty McCollum and her ilk to destroy the American healthcare system and then put in a nationalized healthcare system.

There's no end to the stunts this guy will pull as his pathetic bid for the White House becomes more futile with every poll. Pawlenty, we can't be rid of you soon enough!

A man with conviction who recognizes and acts to preserve liberty. Thank you Mr. Pawlenty. You are welcome in Iowa anytime.

"He is with the vast majority of Minnesotans", said Rep. Matt Dean - R. What? The repubs are so out of touch with main street!
