Can you believe Tim Pawlenty said this on This Week today:
“ John McCain is the one person who says, I’ll stand up and do what’s right for my country even before party. And I’ll challenge you [Rahm Emanuel] once again. Name me one instance, even one, where Barack Obama has stood up and said, I will take on my party on a matter of principle, on something large.”
This is the same man (our governor) who didn’t seem to have a problem with stripping Minnesota Republican lawmakers of their leadership positions when they failed to fall in line to prevent a Transportation Bill veto override for something large they believed in.
By the way, what does Barack have to stand up to his party on? Pushing an end to the war? Trying to provide health care for children? Making sure the Forth Amendment doesn’t go the way of the dodo bird? Supporting the working class rather than the rich? Thinking about the future of energy? I want Tim Pawlenty to tell me what that something “large” might be.
