Pawlenty says twice on Face the Nation he's asked the Romney campaign to "look at other prospects" for VP.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who briefly ran for the Republican nomination last year, says the Romney campaign should look elsewhere than to him for the vice presidential pick.
Let's just not have one. Most of them dont seem to wanna do it anyway. RT @rachelveronica Not Daniels, not Pawlenty. Next.

Tim Pawlenty says he can best serve Romney off the ticket, but leaves the door open to VP nomination http://t.co/cGxYO0Z7 v

The former governor also slammed the Obama administration for its handling (or lack thereof) of the economy.
Pawlenty: Obama "absent" on economic issues: Defends Romney by saying ex-Mass. Gov. has been specific about his plans for tax reform,…

Opinions flowed about whether Pawlenty would be a useful choice for the number 2 GOP spot.
@fran_chambers I hope Pawlenty isn't chosen for VP. We need excitement and charisma of Rubio.

VEEPSTAKES: My guess remains Jindal, with Pawlenty second, and even Thune more plausible than Portman or Ryan or Rubio.

@missADelgado Tim Pawlenty. Yes, he's boring as hell, but I think he nicely supplements Romney's "jobs and competence" campaign theme.

@OctavianD And… I would say T.Paw has some common sense. That would not be a strong ticket. Romney & Pawlenty.

I finally agree with Tim Pawlenty, Romney campaign should look elsewhere for their VP.

And, leftists used it as an opportunity to take cheap shots.
If Santorum were less crazy & Pawlenty more so, either would have a shot at VP. I see a new body-switching script!

A Pawlenty/Romney ticket would be the most boring ticket in the history of presidential politics.

@BuzzFeedAndrew Pawlenty will be significantly more effective in support of President Romney in other roles than VP.
