News Item: Tim Pawlenty drops out of presidential race
Bringing up the natural question- if you drop out of the race in August 2011, did you "run for president in 2012"?
Pawlenty just wasn't angry enough. Sure, he mouthed the talking points, but I never believed this guy was as strident as the GOP electorate clearly wanted at this point. It doesn't speak well of him that he wasn't even the most popular candidate from his own state.Posted by Stephen Silver at August 14, 2011 11:23 AM
