Current GOP hopeful, Tim Pawlenty loves Taxes - raising them, that is:
One thing is certain about Monday’s Presidential announcement by former Governor Tim Pawlenty: he will not bring up the fact that he presided over one of the larger tax increases in
’s history. Yes, that is quite correct. Minnesota
During his two terms as Governor, property taxes rose a stunning $2.5 billion – more than the previous 16 years combined
It is my belief that the President we elect in 2012 should have compelling leadership skills and a demonstrated background of financial excellence. This requires not only an appreciation of
’s financial problems but also a willingness to place the nation’s long-term well being ahead of short-term political gains. America
Unfortunately, Governor Pawlenty falls short of this expectation. There is nothing personal in my assessment. He is smart and pleasant. I appointed his wife to a state judgeship and I supported his first run for Governor.
However, I come from the more traditional wing of the Republican Party and truly believe in fiscal discipline and that the office of the Presidency should go to our nation’s best and brightest and not its most ambitious.
I see Willard Milton Romney behind this attack.
