Governor BridgeFAIL has gotten by with a lot of crap - including his claim that he hasn't raised taxes, despite raising "fees" more than $2 billion. Idiot Minnesotans who have voted for him are getting what they deserve - a sub-par state with failing infrastructure and unmet human needs, which I suppose is the Republican game plan for keeping the people frail and afraid.

This clown has been a joke for so long that I find it almost funny that it has taken this long to catch on to his BS. He offers nothing to solve any problems, and is about as creative as a dead mouse. Shows just how hard up the REP Party is if he is a leading candidate for 2012. Just another politican who lies about everything hoping that the public is in their usual sleep pattern. No tax increase??????/ Look at your fees as well as your local taxes. He should get a real job and earn his keep.

all bs, no action. Property taxes and fees way up, tax cuts to the rich.

Perhaps because that's where most of the moderates are? The GOP has made it clear moderates are unwelcome.

Does anyone else find it funny that he's going North to look at one case of swine flu while slashing hospital and health care budgets?

Pawlenty will never be president. The republican party is in such disarray it is shrinking each day. By the time the moderates in the party regain control, Obama will have been in office for eight years and Pawlenty will have been relegated to the republican ash heap of history.

And painted the word "no" in big letters and put that rock in Pawlenty's chair, it would have the exact same effect as he has had and it would have worked for no salary. Minnesota can do better than Pawlenty. Even a rock could do better than Pawlenty.
