Tim Pawlenty plans to introduce a deficit plan of his own, one that will include Social Security reform:
“I’m going to have my own plan that will have some differences than what he had. For example, he didn’t address Social Security. I will,” he said during an interview with Nevada political journalist Jon Ralston. “You can kick the can down the road and wait for the crisis to come just like we have now in these other programs. But there are reasonable steps … that I know we can get a majority of the country on board with.”
According to a spokesman, Pawlenty will release the plan after he formally announces his presidential campaign, and it will include “specific policy proposals.”
Pawlenty’s biggest challenge right now is increasing his name recognition. While Paul Ryan’s plan to reduce entitlement spending is politically risky, it has also boosted his stature to the point that now he is thought of as a potential presidential candidate himself. Pawlenty could benefit from the same kind of approach.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
