Media coverage for Gov. Daniels
Well how many does this make? In the past few weeks a lot of folks have been writing their thoughts on Gov. Daniels and a possible 2012 Presidential bid.
Here are what some are saying:
From the American Spectator
While he won’t win on charisma, Daniels has an opening to run as a grown-up at a time when Washington is desperately in need of adult supervision.
When Daniels took office, in 2004, the state faced a $200 million deficit and hadn’t balanced its budget in seven years. Four years later, all outstanding debts had been paid off; after four balanced budgets, the state was running a surplus of $1.3 billion, which has cushioned the blows from a steady decline in revenues caused by the recession. The state today is spending roughly the same amount that it was when Daniels took office, largely because he resisted the budget increases other states were indulging in the past decade.
Gov. Mitch Daniels is the one most likely to become the 2012 presidential nominee. I like him because he’s about 5 feet 7 inches or so. He’s low to the ground. His fan club should be called the Mitchets. I like a presidential aspirant who is roughly my height. Plus he happens to be a very successful governor — a pragmatic manager with an impeccable record of fiscal responsibility.
For those who are saying that Gov. Daniels doesn’t have “national attention” needs to be paying “attention” a little more. Argue all you want, he is good and knows how to get the job done! I am for one thankful I live in a state that is being lead by My Man Mitch!
