Mitch Daniels…”Keeping the Republic: Limited Government, Unlimited Citizens”

Bookmark and Share Although Mitch Daniels swears that it’s not a sign of a run for President he has nevertheless, signed a book deal with Sentinel, the conservative oriented publishing label of Penguin Group. The book is tentatively titled “Keeping the Republic: Limited Government, Unlimited Citizens“, and as it suggests it will deal with the virtues of conservative fiscal principles and policies.

Daniels told the Associated Press the idea of writing a book came together well before anybody suggested to me that I was a candidate for anything.” He added that no matter what he does he can’t keep people from leaping to the wrong conclusion that this is a sure sign that he is running for President.That may be so. Daniels may not yet have made a decision about a run for President and his wife, Cheri, has expressed a reluctance towards the idea. But the book is scheduled to come out in September, just around when the Republican presidential contest begins in earnest.

That timing is probably less motivated by Mitch Daniels than it is by Penguin Books.

While Daniels may not yet be sure, the interests behind Penguin are probably betting that he will run, thereby pushing sales of the book way up once it hits the shelves. As for Governor Daniels, whatever proceeds he makes from the book, he tells the AP that much of it will go to charity.

No matter what though, this book will certainly help to solidify Mitch Daniels superior credentials on fiscal policy and its implementation, something that is sure to still be a substantial hot button issue in the general election for President.

  1. On White House 2012’s Facebook page, one reader writes “Why does the phrase “unlimited Citizens” scare the hell out of me? It sounds like amnesty.”

    She may be right in that perception, one which is not intended by Daniels. So perhaps a better “tentative” title for this book might be Keeping the Republic: Limited Government, “Unimited Potential”
