Well too bad but he did leave MN in a financial mess by kicking the can down the road for the last 4yrs instead of working to fix the problems. When you get beat by Bachman that is bad, because in due time she is going by the wayside and for good reason, she is too radical, too much finger pointing and lacks the ability. I am still trying to figure how many uneducated people with little insight who continue to support this women?

Wouldn’t it be a refreshing shocker if he would now denouce the loony teaparty! I would love to see him grow a pair!

Me too, Nora!
That would really be something to see him stand up and say, “the damn tea party totally screwed me”.

The problem is that, in today’s political game, you can’t be moderate… especially if you’re a Republican… and Tim is certainly is more moderate than your typical Republican these days… and his attempts to shift that perception (from what got him elected in MN) were weak and unbelievable. In Republican world these days, you either “go Tea Party or go home”, so to speak.
Maybe Tim would have better luck as a “conservative democrat”. (Ok – that made me chuckle…)

j. d. the financial mess** Minn. ** you are trying to blame on Gov. Tim is just more mud slinging.by you and the Mn.DFLERS Gov Tim unlike president b o can not spend one cent of our income tax money. When HE was in office the Mn. DFLers had owned t he Senate for over 40 years and the House not quite as long.. The DFLers t hat spent all t he money that put us 5-7 billions dollars in debt was the two DFLers t hat were the Majority Lame Duck leaders. DFLer pogemiller and margaret kelliher. State Governors ( President BHO tells us there are –57– of them) can not spend money on their own, same as U.S. Presidents , out side of president B O that is . Presidents need the O.K. of congress, but president b o did not do that. He gave away a trillion of our income tax dollars with out congress O.K. as well when HE ordered U.S.A. to pay for all abortions all over the world. He also started the War with Libya with out congress approval. J. D Gov Tim also left office with a Billions dollars surplus.

The reason TP can’t spend any more money is because WE VOTED THE LOSER OUT.
57 governors? Well, there are governors of our possessions, and they can spend money on their own.
I’d just love to see where President Obama ‘ordered the USA to pay for all abortions all over the world”. Provide a link, wouldya, ed? I can’t believe even you would fall for that one!
Eddie, we ARE NOT at war with Libya. Post the declaration of war, would you?
And show us all where you get the idea that TP left office with any kind of surplus at all.
Come on, ed. Certainly you can give some kind of proof that will CONVINCE the rest of us!

As T Paw rides quietly into the sunset, slightly prodding his loyal steed Eddie to move faster, never to be heard from again! Oops, I was daydreaming again.
