Integrity: I Haz It

January 18th, 2011at 07:27am Posted by Eli

Smooth move, T-Paw:

Likely 2012 Republican presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty said Sunday that when he promoted a bailout plan aimed at stabilizing the imploding mortgage market in 2008 he was speaking solely as a surrogate for GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain of Arizona and never actually supported the idea himself.

“Play the tape. It says ‘he believes’ and I was speaking as a spokesperson for Senator McCain,” the former Minnesota governor said on “Fox News Sunday” after host Chris Wallace played video of Pawlenty endorsing what was billed as a bailout for both the mortgage industry and “Main Street.”

“But I didn’t support -don’t support – bailing out places like Wall Street, General Motors and the like with respect to the federal role of government,” Pawlenty said.

Oh, so he didn’t support the bailouts, he only pretended to support the bailouts which he actually opposed.  That’s ever so much better.
