Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, still recovering from a bad moment in Monday’s GOP presidential debate, acknowledged on Fox News Thursday night that he “should have been more clear” in sticking to his attack on Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health care law.
 
Pawlenty famously backed down from a confrontation with Romney, and got reamed for it by a chorus of pundits who thought he missed a chance to show some gumption in the debate. The day before Pawlenty had coined the term “Obamneycare” to highlight the similarities between Romney’s plan and President Obama’s health care overhaul, which is deeply unpopular with Republicans.
 
Back on the air with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Pawlenty said of Romney, “I don’t think you can prosecute the political case against President Obama if you are a co-conspirator in one of the main charges against the President on a political level. "
