Here's Minnesota Governor and presumed 2012 GOP Presidential contender Tim Pawlenty encouraging conservatives to emulate Tiger Woods' wife and take a nine iron to big government spending. Perhaps not the best thing to say in the wake of an attack on the Austin, Texas Federal Building yesterday.
Then there's Marco Rubio, now the front-runner to win the GOP nomination in the Florida Senate race, refusing to condemn comments made by Glenn Beck and others.
And here's Marco Rubio opening the CPAC conference where he suggests that the 2010 mid-term election is a "referendum on our national identity."
It's curious that conservatives have yet to realize that it is their economic policies have that have us in this straightjacket.
