Maybe Tim Pawlenty quit because he found out that he wasn't getting the job or the cabinet position he thought he might get?

Maybe his quitting has nothing to do with Romney or his campaign?

Maybe he'll be replaced with someone more competent?

Not matter the reason, it's a far cry from the "rats from a sinking ship" analogy.

Romney – “My campaign doesn't need a turnaround”

The Obama campaign/Main Stream Media (one in the same) hit Romney with everything they had.

Even Jimmy Carter IV (the peanut did not fall far from the plant) released an illegal tape as a dirty trick.

Yet somehow the polls are tied 47% to 47%.

Flint/feather wouldn't be here without one of just a very few motivators. It is probably fear. But the fact that it/he/she tends to invite discourse, I think there is a healthy dose of masochism in there too.

Too bad. If the GOP had nominated Pawlenty in the first place, they'd have a much better chance at winning this election.

Huh?

Nominating a guy who couldn't pull in the base during primaries gives a better performance in the generals?

What color is the sky in your world?

Even the Fox Noise polls has Obama ahead 46% to 44% with a 4.5% margin of error.

Let's see.............

46 + 4.5 = 50.5 = 51%

44 - 4.5 = 39.5 = 40%

By putting any kind of stock into a meaningless MoE number, I can now add basic math to the list of things you're No Damned Good At.

It's obvious that you can't even understand how a MoE works.

Have you checked the sample in that poll too?

Anyone notice how shocked the liberal is that someone would leave government and enter the private sector? They also think this deal was made in a week.

Pawlenty was the first to drop out because nobody supported him.
No doubt he was disappointed that he wasn't named to run as VP, and he needed a job which pays actual money (it's a GOP thing).
Quote:
“It is an honor to call Mitt and Ann my friends. As the campaign moves into the home stretch, he has my full support and continued faith in his visions and policies,” Pawlenty said in a statement.

Such breathtaking ignorance is irrisputable and discusting.

Heh...I'm going to have to add FFR's statistical "math" to the archive of shamefully stupid things he has said... Political Issues

An actual guaranteed lobbying job paying good money vs maybe get a job if maybe your candidate wins?

What was Pawlenty thinking????

He'd be foolish to turn that down.

You're asking the color of the sky in my world while at the same time suggesting that the winner of the primaries pulled in the conservative base?

Pawlenty would have done much better in the general election than Romney will do.

Yeah. Nominating Romney has been a slam dunk for the GOP. After the GOP loses another election to a president who should have been easy to oust, be sure to think back on this post.

Drudge headline – Poll: O 46% R 46%

And this is after the MSNBC-ABC-CBS-CNN/Obama Campaign coordinated assault.

Give Romney a chance for 4 years; there will be another election in four years if Romney wins.

Therein lies the problem. The base has moved so far right that their ideal candidate is equally far right and so has a tough time appealing to the rest of the electorate.

The base is only 'far right' when viewed from the 'far left' ...

Think of it in sports term.

If you can't win against teams in your own division and league, how can you win against the best team the other league has to offer ??

I think your statement is rooted in frustration, from the way Romney's campaign has presented itself thus far. To that end, I can understand.

It seems a number of people (H. Cain, Newt, Palin) are starting to voice concern because the Romney campaign has been playing .... "nice guy", waiting for the other team to self-destruct. They want to see the campaign gets more aggressive.
