Pawlenty's name has been frequently mentioned as a possible vice presidential running mate for Romney this fall. It's a position that Pawlenty has repeatedly said he doesn't want, but his presence here on day one of Romney's five-day bus tour of six key battleground states is unlikely to quiet that buzz.
The ex-governor introduced Romney on stop two of his tour, an ice cream social that drew several hundreds of supporters to quaint town square in this southern New Hampshire town.
Pawlenty, his voice a touch ragged, took the stage to introduce Romney and immediately tore into President Obama, saying his "teleprompter speeches" don't do anything to help the economy. He said Obama's election slogan could be summed up as "it could be worse."
"We've had enough of him flapping his jaw," Pawlenty said of Obama. "We need somebody who's actually going to do the job and get results, and that's Mitt Romney."
