Governor Tim Pawlenty's Interview on The Today Show

AFA's Bryan Fischer Interviews Tim Pawlenty

The Right's adulation of former President Ronald Reagan - Pawlenty though he disageed with one of Reagan's decisions on foreign affairs Pawlenty refuses to use Reagan's name in his criticism . To the GOP and the Right Reagan has been promoted to sainthood and so any conservative criticizing Reagan is committing blasphemy since Reagan they believe was incapable of committing errors .
Tim Pawlenty asked about his opinion of Ronald Reagan's cut & run policy in Lebanon

Pawlenty and the line that cannot be crossed By Steve Benen "Political Animal" at Washington Monthly ,July 1, 2011

After the Marine barracks’ bombing in Beirut in 1983, President Reagan decided the smart course of action was running away. It’s not exactly in line with contemporary GOP standards, but the party has changed quite a bit over the last couple of decades.

With this in mind, it was pretty amusing to see Jeffrey Goldberg chat with Republican presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty this week, shortly before the former governor spoke to the Council on Foreign Relations about his vision on the Middle East.

I asked Pawlenty if he thought Reagan’s decision to withdraw from Lebanon was wrong. He went silent.

“Am I putting you in the uniquely uncomfortable position of criticizing Ronald Reagan?” I asked.

“I guess I would go back and say that my view, without referencing a particular president, is that once the United States commits to a mission, it’s really important that we prevail. Because when you don’t, it diminishes the respect and credibility and awe that other people view the United States with. And our goal here is to avoid as many future conflicts as possible by having our relative position be so strong and so unquestioned and so certain that nobody dare challenge us.”

Pawlenty just can’t bring himself to disagree with Reagan in public, even when he thinks Reagan is wrong. It’s the line Republicans simply can’t cross, reason be damned.

More on Rick Perry and his involvement with the religious Right

The Company That Rick Perry Keeps by Kyle Mantyla at RightWing Watch via People For The American Way, June 27, 2011

For the last several weeks, we have been taking a look at the ultra-right-wing with whom Gov. Rick Perry is partnering for his upcoming "The Response" prayer rally and now, via the Texas Freedom Network, we get some rather revealing information about another one of the event's endorsers: Pastor Stephen Broden.

In 2010, Broden ran for Congress as a Republican vying to win a seat to represent a district in Dallas and, during the campaign, was asked by WFAA-TV Channel 8 to defend a litany of controversial statements he had made, including his view that the prospect of violently overthrowing the US government was an option that must always remain on the table ... and Broden stood by that view:

In the interview, Brad Watson, political reporter for WFAA-TV (Channel 8), asked Broden about a tea party event last year in Fort Worth in which he described the nation's government as tyrannical.

"We have a constitutional remedy," Broden said then. "And the Framers say if that don't work, revolution."

Watson asked if his definition of revolution included violent overthrow of the government. In a prolonged back-and-forth, Broden at first declined to explicitly address insurrection, saying the first way to deal with a repressive government is to "alter it or abolish it."

"If the government is not producing the results or has become destructive to the ends of our liberties, we have a right to get rid of that government and to get rid of it by any means necessary," Broden said, adding the nation was founded on a violent revolt against Britain's King George III.

Watson asked if violence would be in option in 2010, under the current government.

"The option is on the table. I don't think that we should remove anything from the table as it relates to our liberties and our freedoms," Broden said, without elaborating. "However, it is not the first option."
