Tim Pawlenty: I Won! [VIDEO]

Tim Pawlenty: I Won! [VIDEO]

While Minnesota is struggling with its second shutdown in a decade, mostly due to a budget deficit left behind by former Governor Tim Pawlenty, Pawlenty himself is using the shutdown as a campaign talking point, claiming that when he ran the state, he “won” the tough budget showdowns.

He's proud of "not caving in to unions"? There must be something wrong here...

Oh, please. Tim never won anything that didn't come in a box of Crackerjack.

Gee, and most people would think governing over the longest transit strike in history would be a bad thing...

Apparently, there is a warning from the founding fathers about the dangers of a big controlling government. I guess people didn't listen.....

It seems to be a common Republican strategy to borrow money in one way or another or do odd bookkeeping shifting expenses from one budget year to another to make their budget seem balanced when it was not. What Palin, both as mayor and governor, President G W. Bush both in Texas and the nation did exactly the same thing--make people think they are getting something for nothing when what is really going on is borrowing to the hilt to pay for current spending and to leave the next Democrat with not much they can do except budget cutting.

He is actually proud of that! With political ads like that his opponents don't need any ammunition! I would call it Pawlenty won! Minnesota Lost!

With McCotter in, Pawlenty’s no longer the most obscure candidate. Winning!

Nice try pulling a Bush, Pawlenty. Too bad it won't work this time around. Go home and enjoy your closed parks. Maybe they'll name one after you.

The man is a sad human being.
