Pawlenty blames Obama for credit rating decrease


Tim Pawlenty made several stops in Iowa including Grinnell and Grundy Center on Saturday.

The former Minnesota Governor said President Barack Obama is to blame for losing the nation's coveted top AAA credit rating.

Pawlenty said among Republicans he is best suited to create jobs going forward.

"Many of the Republicans are going to say many of the same things. The difference is that I've actually done them, I'm not just shooting my mouth off," he said.

The straw poll takes place in Ames Saturday, August 13. It is possible that one or more of the candidates will drop out of the race all together with a poor showing there.
