Skip to comments.(Gov) Mitch Daniels: Indiana Republicans Should Drop the Right to Work Bill
Posted on 02/22/2011 2:05:51 PM PST by A_Niceguy_in_CA
Color me extremely disappointed with Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels right now:
Gov. Mitch Daniels signaled this afternoon that Republicans should to drop the right-to-work bill that has brought the Indiana House to a standstill for two days and imperiled other measures.
Daniels told reporters this afternoon that he expects House Democrats will return to work if the bill dies. It would be unfortunate if other bills are caught up in the turmoil, he said.
He will not send out state police to corral the Democrats, the Republican governor said. The Democrat minority has right to express its views, he added.
The governor clung to his view that this is not the year to tackle right to work.

We don’t need this chicken sh!t for President.
ba bye 2012 Mitch. Nice never getting to know ya
What a jerk. The Democrat minority may have a “right to express its views,” but that doesn’t mean it has a right to get its way.
Is Daniels the same one who said we needed to call a “truce” on social issues? He’s quickly losing the goodwill he gained from CPAC.
Eunichs have more stones.
Another sniveling RINO!!!!!
This is not a leader. This is a gutless, “please like me” follower.
And some people want him to be the Republican nominee for President? NO THANKS!
Ugh! Thanks for nothing, Mitch!
WA Post loves Daniels, calling him Presidential. (IOW: McCain vs. Obama, pt 2, 2012).
Mitch, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for proving to everyone precisely why I never wanted to support you for president. Kthxbye.
Playing pattycake with goonyans will get you screwed.
Carl Rove’s new butt boy proves that he is unworthy of conservative support.
Daniels said in December that he sees the merit in the right to work laws that 22 states now have on their books.
Let me say, theres a lot to recommend this. It does hold us back economically, theres no doubt about that, he said.
The governor said the state loses out on perhaps as many as a quarter of the deals in which businesses are competing states off against each other to decide where to relocate.
So its a very legitimate issue, he said.
But, he said, he told legislative leaders in the Republican-led House and Senate that he would prefer they not address the issue this year.
I think its too big to do without having discussed it out in the open first. And, I will also say that I think it would have the potential, just tactically, to possibly reduce or wreck the chances for education reform and local government reform and criminal justice reform and the things that we have a wonderful chance to do, he said.
“So thats my point of view. I would say to the folks who believe in this, youve got good reasons, but get out there and share them. Build a case. Visit with our fellow citizens about why this is a good idea. If you persuade them, youll be able to prevail in the right way and the right time.
Whether Daniels has changed his mind on the issue is unclear. His press secretary said he is unavailable for interviews today.
Mitch can shove it up his a$$!
I’ve already heard enough from the locals that Daniels bends over for the DUmocrats. My mind was made up on this asshat within six months of assuming office.
No chickens for President.
SIT DOWN, SHUT UP, AND GET THE F*** OUT OF THE WAY MITCH.
And that is the end of his already-slim hopes of becoming President.
Mitch Daniels next career will be as PR spokesman for The New Castrati
He’s done. Might be right on the merits for his state, but his comments undermined Scott Walker, a freshman GOP governor and for that sin alone Daniels must be eliminated from consideration.
I do believe he is done after this one. Just give them a little rope and they, well you know.....
mitch you are a little B - itch
I was going to post that same quote. Poor dumb SOB Gov thinks democrat fascists have a consciences. That alone disqualifies him from any higher office as far as I’m concerned. These are people who support spending tax money to murder millions in pursuit of their eugenics agenda, where did they suddenly come up with consciences?
Yep, he’s cooked.
If your enemy is destroying itself, shouldn’t one step back and let it happen rather than betraying your own forces? A RINO wuss is worse than a liberal.
There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
[If it is] Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.
-- William Shakespeare from his play Julius Caesar
When are they going to play hardball? Ever? That’s why these Republicans were elected in the first place.
Wow. Another “John McCain School of Leadership” graduate.
I think he actually is trying to appear presidential. He is wrong. I think he fancies himself as a serious candidate...not after today though. He blew it big time...Rino!
Another sniveling, gutless asshole reveals himself for what he is.
When will they learn....we dont elect them to compromise with JACKASSES. They are sent to serve our best interests, not those of the DUmocrats and compromise only leads to appeasement and surrender of our principles to accomodate the wishes of the LIEberal minority.
The problem with Mitch is that he is not socially conservative. He would be another GWB and be AWOL on things like abortion and gay marriage.
The time to fight is NOW. Mitch should have call the dums to come back and threaten to have a special session until all things are done.
Daniels is a true conservative. He just wants a truce on social issues and fiscal issues, and if necessary national security and invidual liberty issues. Can’t you Tea Party rabble rousers understand that the only way to promote true conservatism is to surrender to the Democrats and the RINOs on every single issue. /sarc
Once they get it, they become their despicable selves.
2 words...scott brown (no, I WILL NOT capitalize his name).
How did this ball-less wonder get elected anyway?
Okay Mitch, if you said that you might as well find a job in the private sector.
Adios in 2012.
We’re really lucky that Mitch Daniels just showed what a lily-livered pushover he is and weeded himself out early in the Republican Presidential primary.
Newt did himself in by pandering to the ethanol lobby, and now Daniels caves a microsecond after the going gets tough.
Daniels lost me and a lot of conservatives with his truce on social issues. His weak knees on the Democrats hiding out and on not supporting right to work seals the deal that he can’t be the GOP nominee for president.
What? WHAT?? WTH????
The ba%tard. The cowardly ba%tard. I don’t know if he even had a shot at being the GOP nominee- but this just finished him. Over, done, finis.
THIS Mitch Daniels ?????
on his first day in office, he decertified all government employee unions, removing the requirement that State employees be union members; and, within eight months, 92% of government union members quit their union.
As I've pointed out in another thread, Daniels is asserting his authority over the Indiana House GOP. Mitch asked the House leadership not to bring the bill to the floor until the remainder of his agenda was passed. The House leadership didn't do that, so he's hanging them out to dry.
Agree totally..he gave the Wisconsin Dems cover for their actions..Mitch is a .....
Mitch Daniels is the true definition of a Napoleon complex.
Truce on social issues then his willingness to consider a VAT and now this. Hardy har har.
He'd fit right in.
