Pawlenty Wraps Up NH Trip With Politics, Eggs

BEDFORD, N.H. (AP) — Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is finishing up a two-day trip to New Hampshire at what has become one of the signature stops for potential presidential candidates.

Pawlenty will speak at the “Politics and Eggs” forum Tuesday morning in Bedford. The forum is put on by the New Hampshire Political Library and the New England Council and has attracted virtually every presidential candidate since it began in 1996.

Pawlenty, who is expected to soon announce whether he is running for president, spent time Monday signing copies of his new book and speaking to Merrimack County Republicans.

    Stay in NH, Timmy. Ruin their state budget while you are at it.

  • BBB

    T-Paw still have his house here? Maybe he is broke and in need of egg donations? Ground’s covered with snow or I’d offer him some celery

  • Seeya Timmy

    Good luck to Pawlenty – the “do nothing Governor”.

  • Common Sense up North

    Also known as the “know nothing Governor.” He messed up this state so much that it’s going to take Dayton a while to fix it, or atleast get it back on it’s knees. He was handed the same kind of mess that our President was handed. He will probably catch as much grief over it too.

    Pawlenty ‘failed miserably” in many ways.Yet his biggest failure was his attempt to take doctor ordered food supplements from poor,sick and disabled Minnesotans.The immensity of his effort to become king of Minnesota ended only when a district judge,seconded by the MN. Supreme court whacked him upside his big “egg” with a copy of the Minnesota Constitution! ABSOLUTELY NO national media that currently reports on politics has the ” Courage To Stand” and be counted as being nauseated by his lack of moral courage!

      Where does it say in our Federal or our State constituion that one of government’s functions is to steal money from people. Governor Pawlenty realized that. Thomas Jefferson and his buddies would be rolling over in their graves if they knew how people in today’s society want government to do everything for them, from cradle to grave, without paying for it, but rather by having everyone else pay for it.

      Pawlenty for President
      Bachman for Vice President

        Kevin I don’t know what flavor that Kool Aid is your drinking but it’s leaving a hellish stain around your mouth. Pawlenty did not realize that in the least and why you’re championing for him is laughable. Pawlenty was perfectly content subsidizing the ethanol industry in this state to the tune of billions and billions of dollars. Pawlenty also did this with respect to the Pohlads and the entire Twins organization. He went on to appoint David Boyd to the Public Utilities Commission and in turn Boyd would support Centerpoint energy’s new fascist tier pricing mechanism. Pawlenty signed and supported an anti-free market statewide smoking ban, mandatory seatbelt laws, and on and on and on.

        He’s a RINO at best and an outright RAT at worst. That he calls his PAC “Freedom First” is an afront to every liberty and freedom loving individual the world over.
