I'm glad Daniels in not running for POTUS.

He's a conservative, but he's not batshit. He can reminds me of the Republicans I grew up around in Michigan.

1. Agreed. I think he was given this speech in case the convention is deadlocked.

He's on the short list for 2016

Might not be batshit, but is about as inspiring as a piece of wood.

4. Thats why he's not running. He would have to say batshit things to get the nomination. He is waiting

for 2016. Also he is very short and that would be bad visuals in the debates.

He thinks the state of the union is "grave."

I don't blame her for not wanting to go through all of that.

11. Yup. He and Huntsman would have presented the most

 

serious threats to Obama's re-election effort.

14. Daniels would lose spectacularly

He told private sector unions in Indiana that he would not go after them and guess what? He did. There is a Right to Work bill in the legislature right now that he supports. He called for a culture war truce in Indiana then went after Planned Parenthood. People can see right through his crap.

16. Not Batshit?

Ask the people fighting the RTW bill in Indianapolis right now. He's as bad as Walker, an that is saying something.

22. He is also hung up on light bulbs and that is a loser issue.

The market is leaving the Republican Light Bulb Luddites behind. It is as if they were trying to preserve gas lighting when Edison
was selling electric lights. It is that big of a revolution in lighting and the Republicans can't seem to see it.
