Is it just me or does Pawlenty always seem like an agreeable friendly Minnesota kinda of guy that strikes the right balance…that is until it comes time to really show leadership! Actions and results speak louder than pretty words with goofy smiles. Would I like to drink beer with Pawlenty…sure, but when it’s a barn burner needing some government leadership…well let’s just say Pawlenty is still stuck on the stool.
This is the same governor who oversaw the biggest cuts in education, then gave 30% of it back while have the band play in the background for his educational vision...Parlour tricks aside, the last few years under Pawlenty’s and the GOP leadership has decimated Minnesota’s rich history of providing for residents in the area of education, health care, and transportation. If Pawlenty really wants bipartisan cooperation and common sense compromises, he’ll do well to remember you don’t fool all of the people all of the time.
