He’s calling for backers to “take back the government.” Oh OK. I get it. “Exploratory committee” is a fancy way of saying campaign.
According to the article, he had a bangin’ video where he said:
“We, the people of the United States, will take back our government. This is our country. Our founding fathers created it. Americans embraced it. Ronald Reagan personified it. And Lincoln stood courageously to protect it. That’s why today, I’m announcing the formation of an exploratory committee to run for president of the United States. Join the team and together we’ll restore America.”
Whoa. He invoked the spirit of the great Republican, Ronald Reagan. And he used we the people. This guy is dead serious. Too bad he is not that well-known compared to other potential hopefuls like Gingrich and Palin. Allow me to introduce Timothy James Pawlenty, a Sagittarius, born November 27, 1960:
- Former Governor of MN (two terms)
- Blue-collar background
- Catholic turned Evangelical
- No new taxes, but fees on cigarettes were A-OK
- Signed abortion restricting legislation
- Increased the availability of concealed weapons permits
This guy has all the qualifications for a GOP candidate. Minus the name recognition issue, he would make a fine candidate.
Good luck with your
exploratory committee campaign, Timmy!
