The rest of the story: Pawlenty has drawn minuscule crowds. He doesn't need to stand on that chair because all six people can see him clearly. The photogs make up half the audience. Nobody from Iowa has donated significantly to his PAC. Pawlenty turns off the Tea Partiers. He is cold and boring to moderate Republicans. His only constituency is the far right wing religious conservatives. They aren't talking social values this time, and they still are going for Huckabee. The Independents find him vapid. He has so little presence that even the local Eastern Iowa papers are putting him on the back pages. Iowans are finding out what Minnesotans already know: Tim Pawlenty would make a lackluster President. Puff pieces like this one haven't made a dent on the reality that Pawlenty is floundering

Pawlenty doesn't stand a chance. He is wasting his time and money and the State of Minnesota is the one losing out. Good riddance to this bum...

T-Paw has MINUTE with some of the lowest unemployment rates nationally and well below Obama's average of 10%. Jobs-jobs-jobs is Obama's failure and T-Paw has proved he is good for the economy.

The last poll I seen he was behind Palin who was in 4th place if that tells you anything. People complain about Obamas travels but Palenty is just out on a nation wide vacation. Most don't even know who he is and if you don't know don't ask anyone from the state of Mn. because they'll clue you in to how he ran this state into the ground like no governor in recent history.............

Kramer gal sounds like a dumb hayseed when she speaks well of Pawlenty.With all those ears in Iowa. None seems to have heard about Pawlenty's Minnesota conviction and supreme court upholding of the decision.He will never,ever be POTUS! Until he publicly confronts this issue,it will be in the background waiting to pole axe him into the manure pit that was his crowning moment so far. Not to mention the trying to be Palin's parrot about the fake death panels.With that beak of his he looks more like a turkey!

T-Paw has been terrific with jobs and the low unemployment in MN. Obama is that regard has been a failure and disgrace. So let's give the guy with the MN magic a chance.
