WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty says the United States followed Greece into democracy but should take steps so the country does not follow it into bankruptcy.

In a speech Thursday to start a book tour, the Republican criticized the economic policies of Obama, who may face a challenge from Pawlenty in 2012. Pawlenty says the United States needs to re-examine its economic, education and healthcare priorities or face grave peril.

Pawlenty says he has not decided whether he will seek the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. But his book tour is taking him to Iowa, New Hampshire, and Ohio — strategic states in a White House run. In strong language that will appeal to Republicans in early nominating states, he says Greece's economic crisis should be a warning for the United States.
