Skip to comments.Doubting Daniels (can we blame those who dream about a late entrant to the GOP presidential field?)

I can't blame anyone for dreaming about a late entrant to the Republican presidential field -- Mitt Romney is tone deaf, Newt Gingrich is insufferable, Rick Santorum seems unable to catch fire, and Ron Paul, well, is Ron Paul. The likelihood of beating Barack Obama with any of these guys is uncertain at best, and the desire for someone more conservative, competent, and capable is hard to deny.
A sizeable slice of the conservative commentariat seems to think drafting Mitch Daniels is the answer. The Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol declares the Indiana Governor the winner of a debate he didn't attend, the Wall Street Journal's Bret Stephens says we deserve to lose the election partly because this member of "the GOP A-Team" hasn't answered the call, National Review's Mona Charen sighs that "our best leaders" like Daniels are sitting it out, and Charles Krauthammer applauds Daniels for one of the best State of the Union responses he's ever heard.
To all of which, I can only shake my head and ask: are you insane?

Newt's passion; may be insufferable to some; but for many more of 'us'; it matches our desperation for the honest PC-free, articulation of ideas and solutions; and as well; fills the current Repub void; with a voice, willing to profile America's enemies; NAME them; while offering a plan to deliver America from all of them.
Mitch loves Ethanol in Gas.
Part of that is because I also LOVE PORK and that residue left over from the process goes straight to the piggies ~ it's sanitary, sterilized, bug free and good for'em. Gives their meat a fine texture.
“I love Ethanol in gas as well. It is the CORRECT and ONLY CONSERVATIVE position on the matter.”
Sir, I hope your joking.
Burning food for fuel is stupid.
It seems to me that the GOP suspects their Annointed One might not make it after all, so they are floating trial (lead) balloons to see how the second choice might fare rather than getting behind the non-Romney winner and going after obama.
Rotten to the core.
What's not to like!
The 12% decrease in my milage?
Lawn Mower ruined. The stuff eating hoses on the weed eater.
I am glad your pigs taste better, we could have done that with a cheaper food.
I say whatever we spend producing superior pigmeat is a good investment. If you can get some gasoline additive out of it, great!
Remember when wrestling with pigs, you both get dirty and the pig kind of likes it.
Your high Dollar Pig food is costing the rest of the World.
Hope your farmer brothers in Indiana are living high on the “hog.”
By the way I was born in Indiana.
only a retired postman would be spewing how much they love Ethanol.
Try to buy a stamp.
The biggest govenment boondogle and you claim to be Conservative.
Sir, I hope it was a joke or your having a really bad day.
Please telling me you were telling me a joke about
The anti-ethanol campaign plays into the hands of AlQaida and the Iranian mullahs.
Sorry, you can't have it both ways. The residue has high market value and must be added back into the formula developed to show the costs and benefits of the practice.
Regarding "boondoggles", USPS is not subsidized by taxes.
Government agencies that ARE subsidized by taxes are Department of Defense,..... ~ and all the others.
USPS is a user-fee based business.
No one is going to win this argument.
We do not agree.
That is what is keeping us above the rest.
I respect your opinion.
Mine isn’t an opinion. My tastebuds PREFER ham and porkchops. I am under their control!
Earlier Henry Ford intended to build cars with engines that ran on ethanol. He was a big ethanol fan.
Ask Rush Limbaugh about back surgery and pain medicine.
Point about a candidate who has to be talked into it holds, though!
