Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a likely candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, tells Newsmax that President Barack Obama “needs to go” and vows to do “everything I can” to make that happen. 

He also asserts that legislators should draw a “line in the sand” against spending by refusing to raise the ceiling on federal debt, says Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s battle with public employees unions is a preview of things to come elsewhere, charges that Obama’s lukewarm support of Israel “invites danger,” and says the president’s failure to support the opposition to Iran’s government is a “missed opportunity” that demonstrates his lack of leadership…

…“We’ve got a country that’s going broke. We can’t afford what we have, much less adding anything new to it. The debt ceiling limit is really a spending limit.“President Obama has set up a false choice, saying either raise the debt ceiling or we’re going to default. He could by executive direction order the Treasury, or Congress could pass a law ordering the Treasury to sequence our bill payments with the existing cash flow to make sure that our outside creditors and places like the military get paid first so there is no default.
