Governor Pawlenty is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the Missouri Republican Party's Lincoln Days Dinner in St. Charles, Missouri tonight. On Saturday night, he'll be in Las Vegas speaking to the Clark County Lincoln Day Dinner.
Pawlenty's weekend travel means he'll have visited at least 21 different states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and six different countries since he announced in June that he wasn't seeking a third term as governor.
Pawlenty has not ruled out a run for president and appears to be preparing for a White House run. He has formed a federal political action committee and is appearing at conservative events across the country.
Democrats in Minnesota say Pawlenty should be focused on the job he was elected to do and focus on fixing the state's budget problems.
Well, when you courting someone, there is a fine line between being attentive and eager and being seen as desperate. Maybe our (still) governor should spend some weekends at home with the family (or some MN constituents!), because his attempt to be at every gathering of conservative Republicans in any state of the union makes him look more and more like a stalker, rather than a courtier. While the GOP will probably not file for a restraining order, his 6% polling at CPAC shows that he is not really getting on base with his national party.
This shows how much he recares about anything except himself and his own political career and making a bigger name for himelf and boring people to sleep with his boring speeches! Why to you think I call him Pawwhimmpy instead of Pawlenty! He has left a pawlenty of mess to clean up in MN and whould do the same with old Bush policys if ever elected which luck so far he has no popularity not in Mn where he is ecnoring his own political base because he knows nobody like him or can stand him. so he goes out nationally and lies to people he speaks to! He is a terrible speaker and hall this speechs sound like they are from the Andy Griffth show! He thinks he will do the samething even as president. Just like Sarah "Tea Leafs Palin," did when she was governor ans had to resign early because of all the scandle that coming down the Alaskian pipeline! So she as here own little iceteagaste or Alaskagate which ever one you want to use that is the real reason she had to quit early! Hit her with questions like that and see if she can dodge those bullets or harpoons or speers!
