Skip to comments.Pawlenty: Palin qualified to be president (GOP Debate)
Posted on 06/13/2011 8:35:45 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) made the first and only mention of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), praising her and saying she is qualified to be president.
Pawlenty, the former Minnesota governor, was asked who made the better choice for vice president in 2008, Obama by choosing then-Sen. Joe Biden or Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) selection of Palin.
The Minnesotan originally focused his comments on Biden, criticizing his Iraq policy, but then turned to praise Palin.
"I think Gov. Palin is a remarkable leader, she is more than qualified to be president of the United States," he said.
Palin, a potential candidate who could shake up the race, was not present for the debate and was hardly mentioned by the moderators or the candidates on stage.
They would be, but they are not.
Dick Morris says it’s going to be Romney, Pawlenty and Huntsman (whoever he is) vying for the RINO faction vote vs. Bachman, Cain, and maybe Santorum for the “grassroots” voters.
And he says it’s going to be great fun to watch that battle play out.
What’s going to REALLY be fun is to watch him, BO Reilly and the rest eat crow the day after Palin announces and blows all the above off the map!
Bachmann jumped in today - did anyone even hear a splash?
“Bachmann jumped in today - did anyone even hear a splash?”
Mmmm. More of a faint splat.
Once again, the media has selected the Republicans who cannot win and has crowned them as our front-runners.
I think the MSM is pushing someone like Romney or Hunstman not because they though these people cannot win, but they think it’s fine even if one of these guys win because he won’t get too much of a different president from if a Dim wins.
They love Huntsman because he’s way to the left of Mitt Romney, and that’s certainly saying something. The guy was a long-haired hippy son of privilege who dropped out of high school.
Why else would the media love him so, even though nobody ever heard of him? Or why else would Obama have chosen him to be his ambassador to Communist China?
its the same reason why the right prefer a hillary over obama, because she’s slightly right of obama. Most of the candidates in gop are left of Palin
i noticed Mitt couldn’t bring himself to say anything nice about Palin. bad blood there.
ROFL... She wasn’t even there, and yet, she was!
How cool is that. A force to be reckoned with, for sure.
they all suck,- WE NEED PALIN NOW!!!! -
“i noticed Mitt couldnt bring himself to say anything nice about Palin. bad blood there.”
Looking at some of the youtube clips of various debates and exchanges in Massachusetts, Romney shows flashes of being a really vicious, nasty SOB. One such flash in ‘08 put me off of him in perpetuity. This nastiness is independent of his policy and integrity failures, which are completely different and additional reasons to dislike them person.
Meant to say of Romney:
“This nastiness is independent of his policy and integrity failures, which are completely different and additional reasons to dislike the person.”
All the more reason it should be defunded.
“they all suck,- WE NEED PALIN NOW!!!! -”
I agree, and it is obvious that the Marxist know it, with their non-stop smears of her.
The cockroaches know that she is the REAL Raid on their
full court press to make the USA into the USSA.
yeap but the sad fact is if the field doesn’t change form what was on the stage toninght Mitt will be the nominee. those other 6 idiots could fight their way out of a wet paper bag. Not one laid a glove on mitt. why i have no idea. Cain should have been going after mitt all night. So should have timmy and bachmann. yet none did. either the fix is in or they are all cowards. the fight is not just about Obama but for the soul of the party too. i think if Palin or Perry doesn’t get in mitt will win the nomination and Obama wins four more years...
i don’t know you, but i love you!!! i wish you were one of the so called “pundits” on tv panels providing commentary. everyone else is just a zombie in a vanity fair of pointlessness. i truly wonder how Palin will handle media while IN office.
here here...its so hilarious how desperate the media is to treat these people as legit contenders...its all part of continuing on in their self perpetuating cycle of denialism.
LOL what was that one word Palin used when referring to them? about the need to defund the national endowment for the arts, NPR, and other such “frivolities” in order to address thr deficit? was that the word? frilly frills? frou frou? haha something fitting like that. I love her!
I think this is an admission of the obvious. They all know she’s going to the next POTUS...
They should have shown THE UNDEFEATED to all the participants, before the debate began. That could have inspired them to perform better...
That helps Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
That is the opposite of Bachmann who is going down,
down, down, for hiring, and keeping,
