Tim Pawlenty Calls it a Day - Will Not Continue on For GOP Nomination

Tim Pawlenty announced today that he will not be continuing on for the GOP nomination:

“I wish it would have been different, but obviously the pathway forward for me doesn’t really exist so we are going to end the campaign,”
I think this is sad.  There were some things about his record that I didn't find appealing.  But, overall I think he would have made a good general election candidate and could have beaten President Obama.  I know that some think that anyone is a shoe in at this point, but I don't see that as being the case.  This makes it more likely that Romney will be the nominee. 

Too Bad, Timmy.  I wanted to see you do well. You did some good things in Minnesota, a difficult state for a conservative.

I respectfully ask - What is the point if putting up someone who 'can beat obama'. Who has done 'some things good and some not so appealing'. Voting for Cap and Trade is over the line for example.

Regardless, my main point is that if we don't end up with an administration who is going to at least start canceling out the liberal foundations like D-of-Education, Energy, EPA, obamas many executive orders of which many more are coming, etc - what have we accomplished?
The dems will be back in - in 4 or 8 or even 12 years and just pick up where they left off on the unfettered march to socialism/fascism/communism.

Did Pawlenty even say he wanted to repeal obamacare?
