It would be news if Gov. Pawlenty said he’d give Obama “good grades” wouldn’t it?
Gov. Pawlenty appeared on Sean Hannity’s show last night on Fox News. Hannity, a constant critic of President Obama, chucked plenty of softballs Pawlenty’s way.
During the show, Pawlenty criticized President Obama’s health care plan, his strategy regarding the war in Afghanistan and the deficit. Hannity also repeatedly asked Pawlenty to “grade Obama” (ball on tee). Pawlenty said “it was one of the biggest bait and switch schemes in modern American history.” Pawlenty also gave his standard response when asked about his presidential aspirations.
