Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty kicked off his presidential campaign in Des Moines today (Monday) to a small crowd of (presumably) supporters.  His speech was a snarky attack of President Obama.  While he was sniping at the President, the President was speaking to a crowd of tens of thousands cheering Dubliners, chanting “O’Bama!”

Pawlenty’s speech also decried corn-ethanol subsidies in a state where the major crop is corn.  Next he’s going to Florida and give a speech about cutting back on Social Security and Medicare, a state where many rely on Social Security and Medicare.  Following that he will be going to NYC to tell Wall Street that under his administration they will not get any bail-outs like TARP.

Snarking on the President while the President is abroad says something about his character.  Telling supporters he’s against what they’re for says something about his judgement.

    OMG – Sarah rumored to be purchasing house in Scottsdale AZ. How can she stand the heat after leaving her beloved Alaska? Could she possibly be thinking about running for Kyl’s senate seat? Can anything else bizarre happen to AZ ?

    Of course it can – keep watching for happens to “The World Toughest Sheriff – Joe Arpiao” – he’s strangely not tooting his own horn lately. Jan has a lawsuit against her for wanting to cut Medicaid, several legislators have recall petitions in the works, the Fiesta Bowl has shaken up college football and several politicians. Just waiting for the next chapter in Arizona’s crappy reputation.

    A shame Arizona’s politics are so rancid. Absolutely love what I have seen of the state so far, and very friendly and helpful people throughout.

    I wonder if people would actually vote for Sarah Palin, or whether they just think she’s great because she pisses off liberals.

    It’s not like she’s got a reputation for competence, wisdom, or teamwork.

  7. The next sound you hear will be that of Paul Ryan being thrown under the bus! What a shame.

    Yesh! A Democrat won Jack Kemp’s old congressional district.

    On the wings of revulsion at Paul Ryan’s heartless Medicare “serious plan.”

    Sweet. Congratulations, Congresswoman-elect Hochul.

    Jack Kemp would probably get thrown out of the Republican Party today too.

    3 cheers for the NY win. Maybe the repugs are getting the message that everyone is not in love with their idea of change.
