Tim Pawlenty Drops Out Of Presidential Race, We Owe Him Respect For Making The Effort

August 14, 2011

Before I get to the meat of this post I want to thank Tim Pawlenty for running for the White House.  It is not an easy job to enter the fray of a campaign with such intense partisan feelings that dominate in this nation, and never enough time to expound on ideas when people are actually listening.  So in spite of Pawlenty being conservative on the issues, and mostly wrong about the direction he wanted to take America, I still have to pay my respect for his wanting to make a difference and enter the arena.  All who enter political races are to be thanked for stepping up and taking on the responsibility that comes with such an undertaking. 

For the past week I have had my eye on Tim Pawlenty.

I knew he would at some point stop the race.  I just never figured that he would pile on a mountain of debt.  I was correct.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty abandoned his bid for the GOP presidential nomination on Sunday after a disappointing finish in the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa.

“We needed a boost from Ames that didn’t happen,” Pawlenty told staff on a conference call Sunday morning, CNN learned.

Speaking to ABC’s “This Week,” Pawlenty said his campaign needed a lift in the straw poll.

“The pathway forward for me doesn’t really exist and so we’re going to end the campaign,” he said.
