Mixed Signals Sent By Mitch Daniels

Bookmark and Share During a recent meeting with the editorial board of the Indianapolis Star Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels made it clear that he really is seriously considering a run for President. In questions fielded by the papers editorial board, Daniels gave answers that at times sounded like he was leaning towards a run.

Daniels made it clear that if he were to run he would base his campaign on what he calls the “red menace” of federal debt. Daniels is also quick to point out that if he does decide to run it would be because in regards to our debt, the country has put itself in a very difficult place.”

But while Governor Daniels made clear that the prospect of a run for the Republican presidential nomination was on the table, he also stated that insofar as the potential GOP presidential field goes, “I like all these folks, and odds are I will likely end up supporting one of them.”

The Indianapolis Star believes that even though Daniels claims that it is likely he will endorse someone else for President, the Governor seemingly does not indicate that there is anyone in the running who can effectively tackle the red menace that he believes we must resolve sooner rather than later. If that is the case, then Daniels surely will run. The question is, if the Indy Star is right, will Daniels continue to think that way? If not, those who are in the running will be hounding him to death for his endorsement of them. And after that, many will be placing him on their short list of possible running mates.
