PAWLENTY: Well, a number of things. But I think first of all, it has been my experience growing up in that meat packing town when you mess with people's livelihoods and you mess with their families, they get mad and they buck up and that's what happened last night.
President Obama and the Congress and this federal government got to the point where they were messing with people's livelihoods and families and futures and American dreams and the American public stood up and said we've had enough.
HANNITY: Do you think this president has the ability to pivot, to adjust or is he tone-deaf? Is he too ideological to hear the message that I think was sent loudly last night?
PAWLENTY: As they say silver tongue, tin ear. Well, we'll see. That remains to be seen, but based on his press conference this afternoon. He sounded a lot like Jimmy Carter saying it's marketing, it's communication.
It is pretty tough to sell a crappy product and they've had a crappy product. So it's not about communications, it's about putting the product out there that's not any good.
HANNITY: I think the most revealing thing besides calling Americans enemies and Republicans can go in the back. The most revealing thing is he goes on Jon Stewart. He's been president for two years.
"Change is coming." That's not what he was selling us. He promised unemployment would stay below right percent. He promised that his economic plan would work. None of these things happened. Is this a case where he overpromised and underdelivered?
PAWLENTY: Well, fortunately his promises have an expiration date and so does his term, and that's coming.
HANNITY: Do you think he's a one-term president?
PAWLENTY: I hope so and I believe he will be. But, you know, as to the foreign affairs issues, Sean, this is somebody who -- you know, I think is embarrassed by America and our success. I think at times the feeling is mutual.
HANNITY: Wow, that's profound. Good to see you, Governor. Thanks for being with us. Appreciate it.
