Pawlenty to New Hampshire… again

(CNN) - Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty will be the second potential Republican presidential candidate to participate in a New Hampshire rally in April.

Pawlenty will join former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum at the "Americans for Prosperity" event on April 15 at the Capitol in Concord, AFP-New Hampshire Director Corey Lewandowki told CNN.

The news, first reported by the New Hampshire Union Leader, is the latest move announced by the possible White House contenders who have traveled extensively to early presidential primary and caucus states.

Lewandowski also confirmed that Pawlenty will join Santorum and potential 2012 candidate Herman Cain at a dinner in Manchester on April 29 honoring Ovide Lamontagne, a Republican Party activist and former New Hampshire Senate and gubernatorial candidate.

In a statement, Lewandowski said the evening will focus on spending and job creation.

    Thank God this hack isn't my governor anymore. Now Minnesota can finally get back on it's feet. If he gets the RNC nomination, vote NO on November 6, 2012.

    If the good folk of New Hampshire are getting sick of Slick Timmy's act all they have to do is elect him Governor and he'll be nowhere to be found. It worked like a charm here in Minnesota. There's only one downside . . . you're stuck with a real crappy governor.

    There once was a man named Pawlenty
    Who traveled about to gain his own bounty
    He went from State to State – in hopes he’ll be great
    But will NEVER because he polls below twenty!!

    Then Pawlenty will join up with Santorum
    But that would only create a moratorium
    And they would still descent – even after attending the “Americans for Prosperity" event
    And they will continue to roam without equilibrium

    Let’s support our current leader, President Obama, as he continues to MOVE AMERICA FORWARD to WTF!!!!!

    Time, money, and natural resources waisted. But there always seems to be plenty for political campaigning, even if the masses have to do without. Soon, you'll be paying through the nose for the staples of life, and the know nothing, see nothing, do nothing politicians will still be spending money on personal pleasures, the likes of which you'll never see. they'll do this just to keep their image out there in the public eye. I'll bet every time most of them pass a mirror, they slow down or stop to admire the reflection. If there is a reflection to see?

    "Americans for Prosperity" is definitely a Republican group. All they care about is money, the wealthy, and corporations. Greed, no character, no integrity, and fake values- that's a Republican for you. Expert liars and not a leader among them. Wake up America before they totally destroy our democracy and the PEOPLE who are the backbone and character of our nation.
