    Mitch is the social conservative George Bush was, but with the interesting ability to turn a deficit into a surplus instead of the other way around.

    I do believe they are running a deficit now and with Indiana's high unemployment rate it is certain to get higher.

    Hmmmm...

    I think I'll leave it to the constituents in Indiana to tell the Mitch Daniels story. Some of the commentary is very interesting like this one which seems to be the biggest hurtle he'd have to climb:

    I believe that Mitch Daniels will have to explain how he and others in the Bush Administration managed to burn through several trillion dollars, which was the surplus left to them by the Clinton Administration.
    I think the poster has his/her figures wrong, but still..

    All I can say is if he does decide to run, it'll be interesting...

    It wasn't my plan. I voted for the guy who had an energy plan 30 years ago that would have prevented, or lessened the energy crisis we face now of our own making.
    So what! What does that do right now? I'll tell ya....NOTHING! We could have moved on nuke tech. 30 years ago but you libs, and tree hugging stopped that didn't it? This is a problem aggravated by liberals from beginning to end. You should own it instead of pointing fingers, and bitching about what could have been.

    Actually Indiana is sitting on such a large surplus they are now trying to figure out how to give it back.

    and with Indiana's high unemployment rate it is certain to get higher.
    what? A) at 8.5 Indiana's unemployment rate is below the national average and B) it is dropping, though like the rest of the country not as fast as many would like and C) they had a surplus when it was higher.



    Perhaps you were thinking of Illinois?

    Daniels left the Bush administration in June of 2003. He was working for others then, but the deficit was less than a tenth of what it is now under Obama. THEN as an actual EXECUTIVE he turned a deficit into a surplus.

    Seriously, if the "highest hurdle" that people can throw at Mitch Daniels is to try to tie him back to George Bush in 2003, ya'll are in real trouble.
