A Toast to Pawlenty

But is he toast?
Yesterday former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty announced that he was running for president... He promised to end the era of bailouts and handouts if elected, including federal subsidies for ethanol. His remarks carried all the more weight because he was speaking from Iowa, a state heavily dependent on ethanol subsidies.
For speaking out against ethanol subsidies in Iowa, Pawlenty has Global Review's early support. Obviously, much more will be revealed about the many candidates for president in the coming months, but the soft-spoken midwesterner reveals some testicular fortitude by throwing down in Iowa with a statement that could torpedo his campaign in that crucial state. Here's hoping more Iowans are drawn to a message of responsible government than to the usual pandering.
