the republican base wants the budget to be balanced. It wants America to be economically self reliant. Speaking that message to the base would not scare off centrist voters.

Pawlenty and Romney have to be able to speak to the country as a whole. To do that they have to run the guantlet of gotcha questions from the MSM. You would not think that would be so hard, but Romney has shown himself incapable of doing it.
