Pawlenty talks about the dollar on ‘Kudlow Report’

Gov. Tim Pawlenty was a guest Tuesday on CNBC’s “The Kudlow Report,” where he talked about how America can revive the U.S. dollar and American prestige oversees. Pawlenty said the No. 1 way to strengthen the dollar is to stop printing money. Pawlenty mentions that if the recession is officialy declared as ending late last summer, then almost none of the stimulus money was spent before the economy recovered by itself — therefore it grew the deficit irresponsibly.

Host Larry Kudlow got a chuckle out of Pawlenty aftter introducing him as a GOP presidential contender for 2012. Pawlenty, still mum as ever about his bid, responded that Kudlow was jumping to conclusions.
