Pawlenty Rips Obama-Tough Direct Quotes

Former Minnesota governor and presumed presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty Wednesday said President Barack Obama should “not run around the world apologizing,” and warned his global view is going to “get the country in big trouble.”

Pawlenty was on Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly’s show. Pawlenty told O’Reilly that Obama doesn’t seem to be in any hurry to correct America’s economy.

Pawlenty then commented on Obama’s handling of America’s world standing:

“There is a sense – and I know this gets tossed around but I think it’s true – he doesn’t view America’s role in the world as exceptional,” Pawlenty said, adding that Obama’s propensity to not accentuate moral stances worldwide, “is going to get him in big trouble; going to get the country in big trouble.”

“You asked him in that interview [before] the Super Bowl . . . ‘ Would you allow or would you encourage the Muslim Brotherhood to be the victor or lead the country of Egypt?’ He wouldn’t say no. He ducked the question,” Pawlenty said. “You have the president of the United States sitting in the White House saying, ‘you know, I’m kind of indifferent about that, I choose not to comment.’ That’s preposterous.”

 O’Reilly then asked whether Pawlenty thought Obama was “soft.” 

“Bullies and thugs respect strength. They don’t respect weakness,” Pawlenty said. “We need somebody to stand up, particularly the president – a leader of the free world and leader of our country – to not run around the world apologizing.”
