Tim Pawlenty Versus the Empty Podium


Tim Pawlenty’s campaign works fast and hits hard.  Hard on the heels of the Obama Downgrade, with only days to go before the Ames straw poll in Iowa, they produced this highly polished and utterly devastating attack on Obama’s empty-podium leadership style.  Heck, it’s possible they scripted and produced the whole thing just to kill 52 minutes while they waited for the chronically tardy President to show up for his remix political statement yesterday.

I was tempted to knock a few points off for the lightning storm over the White House, on the grounds that it was a bit over the top… but no, I’m going to give this a solid AAA rating.
