Bad Day at Black Rock?

(Not good publicity for
a presidential candidate)

From the Strib:

Gov. Tim Pawlenty got a tough time from callers on his WCCO radio show Friday. He was called cruel, told he "never learned anything" and taken to task for his views on education.

As the governor said, he "got an earful."

"Michael from Minneapolis" was the first to tee off on the Republican governor.

"Why do you hate the poor and disadvantaged in Minnesota?" Michael asked.

He also questioned Pawlenty's frequent bashing of unions' power, given Pawlenty's background in a union family.

"Obviously, you never learned anything," Michael said.

These exchanges will come back to haunt the governor should he be the GOP candidate for president.
