Governor Mitch Daniels on Meet the Press “National policy wouldn’t have been as relentlessly anti-enterprise as it’s been. If you assembled a team of Nobel economists and said design a policy to stifle and strangle investment, small business growth, and innovation in this economy; you couldn’t have done better than what’s happened the last three years. The mindless piling on of regulations… has drained away dollars that could have been used to hire someone. New taxes and the threat of more – all the uncertainty that’s come with that. No one can prove what might have happened; but this is the weakest recovery by far from a deep recession that we have since records have been kept and I don’t think that’s an accident. “
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels hit up Fox and Friends Tuesday morning as part of a publicity tour for his new book Keeping the Republic: Saving America by Trusting Americans and was asked to weigh in on President Obama’s newly unveiled jobs and deficit reduction proposal. No surprise, Daniels thinks the plan is a non-starter. “As a practical matter, it’s a loser.”
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels (R) sat down with the David Gregory fill-in Sunday on Meet the Press and discussed the GOP presidential field he passed on joining. For what it’s worth, I like Governor Daniels and respect his decision not to run. He weighed the impact on his family and chose to go another direction. That said, I wish he would have decided to run; but because he chose not to, I’m fairly certain I could not care any less about his thoughts on the current field.
