Two things keep me from even thinking about Tim, one the cave into Corn into fuel garbage, and the so called health impact fee on cigarettes. Both of those show me he is not a true conservative.

The founding fathers believed in a diety, but not necessarily Jesus, Christ or a God in heaven.

The constitution supports mans freedom and dignity, and these aren't just Evangelical values.

Thomas Jefferson would be appalled at the influence religion has in todays politics and governance.


I'll never vote Republican, but I feel Tim is a better choice that Palin, and he knows it too.
If he says she is a credible, what does that say about him.

Palin has yes to give a meaningful policy speach or be grilled by tough reporters.

Pawlenty is neither pro-life nor a social conservative.

Let's not forget that when Pawlenty was taking the voice from the Hennepin County voters that he was also taking the voice from the babies in the womb and ignoring his own party and a number of Democrats to add a pro-life amendment to the Minnesota Constitution. The Democrats would have worked with the Republicans to add a pro-life amendment to Minnesota's Constitution. All the bill needed was Pawlenty's support. Pawlenty, instead of providing support, was having a heck of a lot of fun "it was a lot of fun" taking the voters' rights from them on behalf of his billionaire friend for this mentioned ballpark.

I consider myself to be fairly conservative, but I am sick of the gun toting Grandma types such as Palin. Will this become Pawlenty's new image? Can't we be practical here? Tim, I thank you for me being able to enjoy dinner out with my family without the stench of someones nicotine by-products. But goodness, a social conservative? Where were these views while you were in office? And yes, I would love to see Pawlenty become president. No matter what ones views are, we could take pride in one of our own leading the White House. Anybody will look great following Obama.
