Tim Pawlenty Makes it Officially Unofficial

Bookmark and Share With the promise to, Tim Pawlenty has officially become an unofficial candidate for the Republican presidential after filing the papers that opened up his own presidential exploratory committee.

In a nearly two minute video announcement Pawlenty evokes the names of Lincoln and Reagan and offers an inspirational, sound bite based message that essentially tries to convince voters that he understands their pain and shares their pain. He uses the circumstances that he once saw in his state of Minnesota as the source of his ability to relate to the tough times that Americans are going through. But with great optimism, Tim Pawlenty goes on to argue that with him at the helm, it will once again be morning in America, as he delivers to the federal government, much of what he delivered to Minnesota state government.

The roll out of Pawlentys exploratory committee is not likely to change anything. It has long been understood that he will be running, so it is not as if someone who has been thinking about running is now have second thoughts because of Pawlentys likely candidacy. But Governor Pawlentys move closer to the announcement of an official candidacy could begin to prompt others to start readying for similar announcements of their own. An early start that lacks the fog that can be created by his future opponents, Pawlenty could gain an edge by defining himself to voters before others have the chance to define him for them.

The introduction of Pawlentys exploratory committee was made live on Facebookandnot filled with any dramatic fanfare but it did fulfill its purpose by having all most major media outlet in the nation report the news. That is after all the main purpose behind such announcements. And you can bet that whatever hoopla this announcement lacked, will not be missing when he makes it official and launches his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

TEA-Paw’s TEA Party Tribute and Pitch for Needed Votes

Bookmark and Share In a new You-Tube commercial put out by former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, otherwise known as T-Paw, turns himself in to TEA-Paw with a tribute to the TEA Party.

It starts out with gently changing clips of individual TEA Party members, smiling and proudly participating in demonstrations for their beliefs. As these scenes play out, Pawlenty is overheard talking about the TEA Party.

He says;

“Each generation needs a change historical change in this country. usuallyit starts with a group that is somewhat fresh, somewhat new. Starts out with a little bit of an outsider status but then over time they become the driving force for change. I think the TEA Party is a welcome, helpful, energetic, forward leaning organization.”

The commercial then goes into what is becoming stylistic of the Pawlentyycampaign’s adds…….fast paced clips of scenes shot at rapid changing angles, roll out while the music and voice of Pawlenty builds to a crescendo of determined patriotic fervor. These words are taken from his stump speech which usually ends with a rally cry for Americans to take back our government.

As stated here in a previouspost “TEA-Paw” is leaving no stones unturned in his attempts to not only get TEA Party support but to turn himself in to a TEA Party leader. If that can fly when people like Mitt Romney finish eviscerating Pawlenty’s record, has yet to be seen. But Pawlenty is trying hard early.

Tim Pawenty’s TEA Party Patriots Summit Speech

Bookmark and Share As recently reported here in Whit House 2012, former Minnesota Governor and future presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty “rallied the TEA Party” at a TEA Party Patriots summit held in Arizona. Now we would like to show you that speech in the speech below this post..

Much of the speech is a stump speech given at the many events he has been hitting. But with lines such as “the Constitugtion was not written to imit freedomm. It was written to limit government”, Pawlenty is honing his message to those who consider themseves a part of the TEA movement.Given that the TEA Party and its agenda is embraced by the G.O.P., the strategy is a good one and he is carrying it out well.

Currently Pawlenty is not a top tier candidate among the TEA Party, but with spoeeches like this, he soon can be.
