In an effort to take the “chicken” label off himself, Tim Pawlenty, often described as “softee” and “mild mannered” tore up the civility memo and dived head-first into Republican macho-ness… He called the president a chicken!
Well, he did!
The Presidential hopeful appeared in friendly territory on “Fox & Friends” and spoke about President Obama’s State of The Union Address, and the president’s “failure” to mention entitlement programs for the disenfranchised. Pawlenty said;
“He swung and whiffed at one of the biggest challenges facing the country, he didn’t even address entitlement spending. He’s chicken to not address the real issues.”
A Fox host, surprised by Pawlenty’s reference to the President as a “chicken” asked if this was the new tougher Pawlenty, to which the Macho-man replied, she should not confuse being “Minnesota nice” with “being weak.”
Yeah, pick on the country’s downtrodden Mr. Tough Guy! My Grandmama could’ve taken you.
