Pawlenty Differentiates Again

On “Fox and Friends,” T-Paw repeats criticism of Bachmann:

“With all due respect, she just doesn’t have that kind of experience…her record in Congress, as I mentioned before, is, you know, again, great remarks and great speeches, but in terms of results and accomplishments, nonexistent.”

Earlier: Bachmann defends “accomplishments,” says she won’t focus on “negativity.”

Michele Bachmann Responds to Gov. Pawlenty’s Comments on “Meet the Press”

Des Moines, Iowa – Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has issued the following statement in response to Governor Tim Pawlenty’s comments on “Meet the Press:”

“This is an election about the future of our nation – one where voters will have to decide who is best equipped to lead our nation by looking at our records, as well as our vision for the nation. Instead of negativity, I want to focus on my accomplishments.

“I have fought the cap-and-trade agenda, rather than implement it, and I will work to end cap-and-trade as President of the United States. I stood up against President Obama’s support of the $700 billion bailout rather than defend it.

“I was a leading voice, fighting against Obamacare and the unconstitutional individual mandates; I did not lift my voice in praise of it. My message brought tens of thousands of Americans to Washington D.C. to oppose Obamacare. As President I will not rest until Obamacare is repealed. And I will not vote to raise the debt ceiling.

“People can count on me as a fighter; I am proud of my record of fighting with resolve, and without apology, for our free markets, for sane fiscal policies, and in opposition to the advancement of the big government left. As President, the American people can count on me to stand by my record of advancing pro-growth policies to put our nation back on the right track.”
