Pawlenty weighs in on Reagan’s 100th birthday

In a tribute to the late President Ronald Reagan, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has posted a video on the occasion of Reagan’s 100th birthday.

In a statement, Pawlenty said: “When I was in college, President Reagan inspired me and millions of other Americans to get involved in politics and fight for conservative causes. President Reagan saw America as a ‘shining city upon a hill,’ and under his leadership, he made us more secure, free and prosperous. Today, on his 100th birthday, we’re proud to celebrate his remarkable life and leadership.”

    Any mention of Reagan tripling the deficit?


    How about the fact that Reagan’s tenure saw the investigation, indictment, or conviction of more than 138 of his administration’s officials.

    No hint of that, eh?

    Me thinks Tim has a selective memory.
