Draft Mitch Daniels

If, as appears to be the case, Ron Paul is not going to be able to overcome the neo-con aversion to military interventionism, we are looking at three weak and flawed candidates to face President Obama in the fall. Perhaps one of them can beat Obama. Perhaps not. All three of them, in one way or another, will allow Obama to change the focus of the election from his own failures to the personal quirks and foibles of Gingruch/Santorum/Romney and that is a recipe for danger. President Obama promised to double down on every failed government initiative last night and intrude even further into the lives of American citizens. Four more years of enormous deficits, politically motivated assassinations of private sector job creation and more crony capitalism favoring his political allies and punishing his enemies will push America over the precipice.

It doesn't have to be this way. Watch my governor Mitch Daniels give a measured, sober, serious and strong response to President Obama's big government love fest masquerading as a "state of the union" (he should have called it the "state of the government")

Compare Governor Daniels to the three "conservatives" still in the race and ask yourself who would better represent our party.

Mona Charen wrote a searing statement last night in her note What Might Have Been
That our best leaders, such as Mitch Daniels, who tonight delivered the finest response to a State of the Union ever, have chosen not to serve, leaves the country to the second-raters. And if we are led by second rate people, we will become a second rate country.
We are looking at an election between a second rate Republican candidate facing a failed sitting President. We need a better choice. It is not too late, not by a long shot. Governor Daniels it is time to get in the race and save us from ourselves.
