Pawlenty Campaign Lowers Straw Poll Expectations to Rock Bottom

Via: Atlantic Wire

We speculated yesterday that former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty could be the first of the 2012 White House hopefuls to abandon his candidacy, now that the campaign’s halycon early days have given way to riding around Ames, Iowa in an RV, trying to get his name out there in a state where he’s already spent $437,000 advertising.

In a new National Review article posted today, Pawlenty spokesman Alex Conant didn’t do much to alleviate our sinking feeling when asked about the campaign’s goals heading into August’s pivotal Ames Straw Poll. Said Conant, “We want to show progress (?) in Ames, [do] better than sixth or seventh.”

He was probably just trying to manage expectations, but sixth or seventh? Say fourth. Or fifth!

Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman aren’t even going to be there.

Pawlenty may not be able to beat Michele Bachmann, but surely he can out-perform Rick Santorum and the mere suggestion of Rick Perry.

Breaking News: Tim Pawlenty Shaves Off Every Hair On His Body In Really Weird Campaign Gaffe

DES MOINES, IA – In what political insiders are calling one of the weirdest campaign gaffes in history, Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty SHAVED EVERY SINGLE HAIR off his body this weekend while campaigning in Iowa.

The bizarre misstep by the former Minnesota governor, who is currently in the midst of a nine-city speaking tour across the crucial early-primary state, has left media pundits and political strategists baffled, with all of them agreeing that shearing the hair from his head, face, arms, legs, and torso has jeopardized Pawlenty’s bid for the presidency.

“This was a massive and, frankly, confusing miscalculation by Gov. Pawlenty,” Republican campaign strategist Matthew Dowd said. “Every candidate attempts to distinguish himself from the field and gain an edge with voters, and unfortunately for the governor, he seems to have come to the conclusion that shaving every inch of himself clean and leaving his body bald and smooth all over would help him better connect with Americans. I just really don’t think he thought this one through.”

Tim Pawlenty: Bill O’Reilly ‘Playing The Race Card On Me?’

Via: Huffington Post

GOP White House hopeful Tim Pawlenty (see photo) is scoffing at claims that he’s too “nice” and too “bland” to take the political fight to President Barack Obama.

Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly said last week that Pawlenty (see photo) was “invisible” and that “Haagen Dazs could put his picture on vanilla.”

During an appearance on this weekend’s edition of “Fox News Sunday,” Pawlenty (see photo) asked host Chris Wallace if O’Reilly really used the word ‘vanilla’ to describe his persona. After Wallace confirmed the word choice, the presidential candidate joked, “Is he playing the race card on me?”

Wallace replied, “I don’t think so sir. I think he’s just talking about the taste, not the color.”

Huckabee offer potential surogates to voters

Via: Fox News

He goes on to mention that Santorum, Pawlwenty, Bachmann and Palin could take some of supporters.

personal thought:

He’s white  of course, but I think the potential GOP ‘dark horse candidate’ might be Georgia’s very own, NEAL HORSLEY.

“Neal Horsley is God’s Man for Georgia and the USA”

Got that? the U.S. of A.!
