That was a personal decision that only he and his family could make. Besides, he needed some time away from the campaign to enroll his daughter at KU.

he was the smartest dummy in the field of imbecels and should've stayed in. Just like Brownback he had a thing for having state tribal casinos at the expense of the Ojibwe people in the north.

Really too bad, the republican circus has been the most entertaining glop on the television since "My Mother The Car" was cancelled.

It's never too soon for a Republican to drop out of a Presidential race,especially when Obama is running.I wonder when the clown car will run out of gas.

The guy made too much sense and wasn't ultra-fascist enough for The Party to drool over, nor long winded enough for a Red Meaty Sound Bite for The Party's Official News Station.

Poor man was doomed from the start and the best he could hope for was pumping a few dollars into the NH economy.

Did that make him a job creator? Or since it was other peoples money he was spending did that make him an ultra-liberal 'merica hatin' commie? The line gets so fine these days on this darn label machine.

Unfortunately, Pawlenty was able to get crushed by Michelle Bachmann.

That doesn't look good on your resume.

If he reinvents himself as a Moderate, he might have a shot in the future. I imagine a lot of these guys might be doing that in a couple of years and hoping we have short memories.

As someone who usually votes Republican, I was happy to see him drop out. I really did not know much about his views, but that was because I couldn't get past how much he reminded me of Joel Osteen when he gave a speech. That alone was reason enough for me not to like him.
