INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, a popular fiscal conservative who flirted with a presidential bid, will deliver the Republican response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday.
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., announced the selection of Daniels in a statement Thursday in which they praised his "solid record of effective government and fiscal responsibility."
Daniels provides the GOP with a one-time potential White House hopeful as a counterpoint to Obama in an election year heavily focused on the nation's economic outlook. He also governs a state that Obama won in 2008, ending a long stretch of GOP wins in Indiana.

I like this choice!
Great time to announce a bid for the presidency.
He has the ability to do very well, I hope he does.
SWELL, can ya FEEL the “squish”!
I'm sure everyone will be on the edge of their seat for that response.
I look forward to a “Senator Lugar” quality RINO “speech”!
In the coming New Year, 2012, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address will occur on the same day.
This is an ironic juxtaposition of events.
One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication.
The other involves a groundhog.
He is no Lugar, not by a long shot.
Daniel’s Administration just won an important court battle upholding the largest educational voucher program in the country. He is working on right to work legislation. He also cut off funds to planned parenthood, although a federal judge blocked the legislation.
Daniel’s might not be a tough talker, but his actions prove that he is a conservative, and he is getting important conservative work done.
So many here label him "RINO" but he sure seems to get a lot of things right.
He is a Conservative Realist, he fights for what is attainable and lets the big dreams that can never be achieved go by.
Those that bash him usually haven’t seen all the facts of what he has accomplished in our state.
I know he was thrashed just for considering it here but I wish the Mrs. would’ve let him run.
I like most of what he has accomplished and hopefully will accomplish (right-to work). I dislike his personality immensely, and on some issues I think he is off-the reservation. Particularly certain social issues (the ‘other’ ones, not abortion) and issues involving local control.
