"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

Pawlenty – Naval Gazer In Chief #tpaw #cnndebate

Ready. Set. Spin.

Its really telling how a politician can stomach being nasty one day and then demure the next. I’m talking about Pawlenty’s 24 hour reversal from Romney accuser to naval gazing Minnesota aw shucks nice the very next day. What’s even more troubling is how after he decides to back off, he denies backing off.

Pawlenty Denies he Pulled Punches on Healthcare

Its getting deep in the Tpaw spinzone. Waders required. It appears he can be easily rattled. Last night it was probably due in part by Bachmann upstaging the field and stealing all his mojo. But his refusal to call out one of the most flawed Republicans on a cornerstone issue of the 2012 Presidential race is a huge problem for him and the nation saw it.

Make no mistake, Pawlenty was given a penalty shot on Romney, but he decided to ice the puck rather than bury Mitt. And the nation saw. Don’t believe the garbage coming out of Pawlenty’s camp and clingers on, he blinked. He blew it. It could have been game over Romney, but it looks like Pawlenty is playing nice to be second fiddle. Either that or he’s just not cut out to be leader of the conservative movement. (but you know I already think that, the nation just got to see a glimpse of what Minnesota conservatives have suffered through for 8+ years)
