From The Fix by Chris Cillizza at WaPo:
In the upcoming issue of Esquire magazine, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) offers a harsh rebuke of his own party's actions in recent years, arguing that the GOP "blew it" when they had the chance to govern the country.
"The marketplace measurement in politics is something called an election," said Pawlenty in a lengthy interview appearing in the magazine's March issue. "And in 2006 and 2008, the marketplace was telling the Republicans 'We prefer the products and services of your competitors.'"
We got fired for a reason," he added. (You can read the full transcript of Tpaw's interview with Esquire here.)
Which helps explain why 81% of people want ALL incumbents removed!
