Wow and wow.

Tim Pawlenty quit as co-chair of Mitt Romney's presidential campaign on Thursday to become one of Wall Street's top lobbyists in Washington. Pawlenty, a former governor of Minnesota, will lead the Financial Services Roundtable.

Wow that he bails on Romney and also wow that he joins the corruption in DC by becoming a lobbyist.

I'm just not really surprised. It seems to be an "anything can happen" kind of campaign, so there's no telling what we can expect next.

I might think Tim wanted in on the money while the gettin' was good... instead of standing behind a cart that's balancing on an unsteady set of wheels...

That's good news for Obama, the economy is rebounding opening up new opportunities for advancement.

They are all pretty much quickly realizing that they cannot lie, Voter ID cheat Romney into the Presidential position so they are looking for their best options.

Not at all surprised he's becoming a lobbyist.

I am surprised he's quitting with so little time left until the election. I would think that just for appearances he'd have waited to start until after the election. No?

Pawlenty will not step into his new role until Nov. 1, but he left the Romney campaign immediately because the Financial Services Roundtable is a bipartisan organization.

Is that so he can appear non-partisan. Too funny.

I don't know, Jill... one would think so, but maybe he panicked.

Mutiny on the bountiful.

I wonder who else might jump off the boat.

No one wants to be associated with a loser.

Follow the money. Probably didn't see any future.

Or maybe poor Tim couldn't find all 10 years of his tax returns...
