Rush Limbaugh interviews Tim Pawlenty

I tweeted about halfway through this interview that T-Paw isn’t sounding half bad actually. He talked about taking on the unions before it was popular, fighting them and his Minnesota legislature over benefits and major reductions in spending. He said he’s had government shutdowns and lengthy standoffs with the unions in the process of getting his state in order. All of that is music to my ears.

But the thing he said that got Rush’s attention is that he is currently campaigning in Iowa for the end of ethanol subsidies. He admits that it didn’t get any applause at that point in the speech but he believes it is something that must be done and he isn’t going to shy away from the truth.

If T-Paw can be tough and stand up to the president, as Rush was suggesting, he may be someone I can put my support behind.

Listen to the whole interview and see what you think. I know it looks long but it goes by pretty quick.
