Is this the guy that the GOP wants to replace Romney? BORING!
He has done this before, too.
I was REALLY excited about him, and you know what?
I’m not anymore. He simply presents conservatives with a chance to gain some kind of racial absolution:
“See?! I LIKE HIM...!!! I’m not a racist..!!!!”
I’m pretty sure I’m not supposed to say that, but you know what? The guy is boring as hell.
Doesn’t realy excite me. Bland and unremarkable.
He’s a young, ethnic BOB DOLE —sorry...
Daniels is awesome, and a penny pincher. Love to see him as Treasury Secretary.
His message was good, but he is not inspiring in the least.
I’d give him a one on a scale of ten.....
Way to go GOP leadership, you blew it once again.
Your comment makes no sense.
Different strokes for different folks?? I thought it was GREAT. Now Obama went on waaayyyyy tooooo loooooonnnngggg.
I think you will find yourself to be a very very small minority holding that view.
I thought he was pretty good. Albeit a bit dry.
“Pro poverty policy” was a great line.
Our Republic is truly in peril.
If you are familiar with Braveheart then the type of person needed is a William Wallace. Wallace face the Scottish lords who would sell him out. They were men of no principle. Wallace properly dispatched those who would enslave his people. Wallace fought for Liberty.
What we need is a fearless candidate who will go after the left and never back down. We need a leader that, once in office, will do all in his power to utterly destroy the left politically.
If we are to remain a free people, if Capitalism is to once again thrive, then what is required is that government at all levels be dramatically reduced in size and scope.
Now is not the time for weak, sissified, metro-sexual wimps.
What you talking about, murron?
Mitch delivered a very good speech.
Though, I would’ve gone even further in attacking Obama and his lies and his destruction of the country.
He might not have been high on entertainment value, but, who wants an entertainer when the country needs doers, and Mitch is a doer.
Any video out yet?
Daniels was fine. More importantly on fiscal side look at the turn around in Indiana. Of course liberal media points to budget director of Bush. When they talk about the slide, someone needs to remind them it pales in comparison to Obama. As I said earlier, the Gingrich fanatics need to stop being so paranoid. Right now I am voting for Gingrich, however the guy has had his share of liberal and media lovefests sucking up. His record is far from perfect. He is our best conservative voice right now, but he desrves to take heat as well.
the group here, Demos, Repubs, whatever, thought his address was great. I heard not one dissenting opinion and believe thee me, there were more than a fair number of ultra-liberals here.....about 35 people alltold
Who do you think can.
I’m with you. He has as much fire in his belly as a slug.
I don’t agree with you. Maybe you were expecting something weird.
I don’t agree with you. Maybe you were expecting something weird.
The President of either Party should just be allowed to speak, we don't have to waste time with the nonsense.
I thought he was great. I’m not looking for entertainment. I looking for a leader who knows what he is doing.
Daniels did fine. Limited time and a lot to cover..
Of course, Obama was his usual, unicorn best..keep those skittles coming!!
///someone should have told him, he wasn’t in Disneyland anymore...what a kidder!!///
Actually I thought he was better than Obama
Newt has so much baggage, the dens can destroy him and they will.
Romney and Santorem can be hurt but
Thanks for the link. Listening now. I could do without the niceties at the beginning to Obama, but oh well, I guess he can’t say what I’m thinking about Obama.
Was that Bob Newhart?
I agree. In the GOP primary anyone who has show a trace of bold ideas has had a boomlet although none closed the deal. People are longing for someone who will inspire and lead us. Daniels is a nice and honorable man. We need more than that.
Both the GOP establishment and the ‘rats should take a long hard worried look at the traction that the truly preposterous Ron Paul has achieved. I don’t think Paul is a monster just a crank. They may get a real monster soon if they don’t start listening to the discontent in this country from both sides of the spectrum.
The rules of the campaign, and the vicious press prevent the alpha male from ascending. Any bold, William Wallace type might leave more than a few skeletons in his closet, so he would never make it by the personal scandal loving media.
That sounds more like someone who doesn't like Newt trying to "rationalize" why he can't win and who accepts the "baggage" argument at face value. Was leaving it hanging with the final "but" a ploy to make us think you have some rational thoughts that you won't share?
This flash-over-substance mentality Americans have is destroying this country.
Frankly, I like a serious green-eyeshade, red-pencil guy for President. I support Newt now, but if Daniels were running I’d have been all in for him.
Is that you, SanFranNan?
His words might have been good, but the delivery left a lot to be desired. And for those who said he looked like Bob Newhart, I agree. Bobby Jindal’s words were good, too, but his delivery was pathetic.
That’s a very low bar to overcome.
Who the heck cares about his delivery? The one area where he needs to deliver is in his job, and according to the people of his state, he has delivered.
I, and millions of other people, care about results and not about the entertainment value of a speech. That’s the realm of the stupid, and the stupid got caught up with that silliness in 2008 when they elected someone with more charm than experience or knowledge. If you want entertainment and fluff, then perhaps you’re not looking for someone that can deliver where it counts, and that’s in governing.
As it stands right now, Mitch is not going to be president, but perhaps as vice-president he can start assisting in getting the country out of the disaster being brought upon it by the democrats.
It sure made a difference for Jindal.
Not that I know of.......
You must be reading and watching the MSM........
Not at all.
Jindal has still been able to perform effectively in his state, and he hasn’t sought national office yet in order to test his “delivery” skills. Judging a person from one speech is not the way to judge the person’s skills overall.
All I heard after Jindal’s speech, and I’m from Louisiana, is that this speech took him out of the running for president or vice-president. I’m sure Mitch Daniels will still be the same governor he was before his speech. I have heard a lot of praise for its content, and I agree with that. It’s his milquetost delivery and his bland appearance to which I’m referring.
You’re still talking about fluff over substance.
Like I said, if you want someone with good delivery, or who can fake it, then you should feel very comfortable with keeping Obummer in place.
Obama doesn’t have either. Believe me, why do you think Newt is winning the debates. It’s not just what he says, it’s how he says it.
You’re misunderstanding where I’m coming from.
Right now, Newt is my choice over any of the others, and he’s been that for a while.
I’m just arguing against the perceptions and the fluff, which many people seem to prefer over substance. Mitch Daniels is a man of heavy experience and a lot of substance, and I don’t care about his delivery at this point since he’s not running. We never got to hear him in the national debates, and there’s not telling how he would have done on that stage.
