    Hey Pawlenty,

    The American people want Ron Paul. We don’t want anymore liberal Republicans like you or Romney. This guy is trying to get a job.

      No we don’t, Paul is just another tool.

        You hate Vetrans? I suppose you support Romney or Obama? There is absolutely no difference between the 2. The only difference I see in Romney or Obama is who are they going to bomb

      @ Veteran

      The Ameican People do not want Ron Paul !

      1. Veteran says:

        The ones that don’t want endless wars and the Patriot Act do. You must want more torture, spying, bribes to dictators and secret prisons. Good luck, until you are rounded up

    Those subjects are far too deep for Pawlenty.Pushing people in wheel chairs over.Starving sick children and frail elderly adults now that’s the Pawlenty we remember! He’s got a district court conviction to prove it too! If I were a GOP voter I would take Paul over the other three , Sick Santorum,Pit Romney or Newt king of the rich!

  3. G Dog says:

    Is this a GOP event or an insomnia conference?

  4. KEVIN says:

    I’d take anyone as long as Obama is tossed into the trash.

  5. Murph says:

    Sounds of snoring from Traverse City spook Michigan residents yesterday as many believed the sound to be Iranian buzz bombs! State now mulling statute to limit boring politicians to speeches,messages and commercials of less than 3 minutes duration.Sick Santorum calls it a Romney hypnoplot based on a phoney voodoo religion invented by Newt in conjunction with and hidden within the content of the Norquist pledge of allegiance pact.
