The bad thing about this is that his supporters will most likely go to the other big RINO in the race. Fortunately, he doesn’t have many supporters.

Did anyone notice that yesterday in Iowa
he was generally unable to look anyone in the eye
while greeting them?

Thought it was poor performance, but it was a predictor.

GET RID OF OBAMA, KEEP FREE REPUBLIC OPERATING

You won't even miss the 25 or 50 cents you put in a FR Change Jar, but at the end of the month you will have at least $5 to donate so FR can operate smoothly, or you will moan and grown and go into withdrawal when it is down, because of broken parts, or over loaded servers during crisis events. And every day 0 remains in office is a crisis.

Not surprised. Rep. Micheale Bachman handed him his rear-end during the debate last week.

Being from MN most of my life until recently I know about Tpaw he never raised taxes just charged fees for everything. He was McCain’s chairman enuff said there. I am glad to see him go.

Republicans who win statewide office in states that have been liberal for decades are to be suspected.

Same applies to Romney.

I guess she did get the best of Pawlenty but she also turned me off big time.

Anyway, I do believe, with the Bachman overkill this morning on the talk shows, she will not get as much attention in the coming weeks.

Pawlenty was never capable of getting anywhere. It’s so obvious.

Chris Wallace didn’t need to bother with “a mission” to stop him.

Just...LOL.

I am also a former MN resident. I do not have a problem with user fees. I like them much better than taxes. If you want it an use it, it should be you who pays for it. If I do not use it why should I have to pay for it.
I very seldom use our state parks, but I still have to pay for their upkeep through taxes. I prefer to stay in a hotel, shouldn't my hotel stay be subsidized?

Pawlenty finishes third in the Iowa straw poll and packs it in.

Still no major story on AP, Yahoo, Fox websites....

Lamestream Media must be all hung over from the Corn Dogs at the fair. Sarah ran them all ragged too!

Pawlenty tried to blow her away, but she turned the tables on him big time.

We need someone to do the same, over and over, to Obama. She’s the best one in my books because she won’t be bent by his Liberal/Progressive/Socialist schemes.

Seems like Pawlenty has good timing to announce his withdrawal. I bet half the time she has on each show will be spent fielding questions about the debate and TPaw dropping out, instead of talking her message.

um... no we don't want him to drop out... he is dead in the water, we want him as our opponent. If he were to drop out and someone like Hillary stepped up... I would be scared to death.

Good. He’s a jackass, classless moron who has no business near the Presidential ring, let alone near anything conservative. His ‘campaign’ if you call it that, exposed himself as a big government fraud.

“Pawlenty Quitting Presidential Race”

Reaction from around the country was swift:

“I’m ashamed to be an American today” a woman in Dallas said.

“Can we even choose from a field where SOMEBODY knows how to read?” was heard on the streets of Memphis

“...and I named my kid after him” a woman in Seattle dejectedly stated

In Los Angeles, they simply took to the streets. Their last hope for the United States swept away by the extremists in Iowa.

Yes, it’s been a dark day in American politics, particularly for the Republican Party, and may get darker soon, now that Jon Huntsman is starting to waiver.

Iron law number 4567 of politics — a guy named Pawlenty can never get elected President of the United States.

She did.

He also made himself look small, nasty and a sophist.

I am surprised he is paying the price this quickly though.
