imageFormer Governor Tim Pawlenty (R-MN) has been pointing out there is very little difference between them, but that he has executive experience and she does not.  With several groups he’s also questioned her electability.

Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s press secretary, Alice Stewart, struck back last night with the following statement:

Governor Pawlenty would have us believe that there is ‘very little difference’ between his positions and those of Michele Bachmann.

But in fact, there is very little difference between Governor Pawlenty’s past positions and Barack Obama’s positions on several critical issues facing Americans. On issues such as unconstitutional healthcare mandates, climate change regulations, and Wall Street bailouts, there’s very little daylight, indeed, between Governor Pawlenty’s record and the Obama administration’s policies.

And of course, President Obama would surely applaud Governor Pawlenty’s 2006 statement that the “era of small government is over,” and that the government will have to be “more proactive and more aggressive.”

Governor Pawlenty has changed his positions in recent years, but he can’t run from his big government record as governor of Minnesota that left the state’s budget in a multi-billion dollar mess. That’s not executive experience we need.

As Michele Bachmann said earlier today, she “has a lifetime record of success and action in the real world. Real-world actions speak louder than his words as a career politician.” And so the more Republican voters examine Michele Bachmann’s record and Governor Pawlenty’s record, the more they will see that there is a world of difference between the two.

Apparently Bachmann’s campaign doesn’t do Minnesota nice when countering criticism from Governor Pawlenty.  I’m looking forward to seeing those two debate.

  1. I guess these two don’t practice Reagan’s “11th Commandment”:  “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”  😉

  3. I think Mrs. Bachmann is getting a little testy.  Mr. Pawlenty must be gaining some ground.
      Like Mike Huckabee might say, “If he’s taking flak, he must be flying over the target.” 
    As my friend and boss Shane might say,  “Get Classy, Michelle”.You can’t equate Pawlenty considering a mandate and then rejecting with Obama’s implementing it.
