Mitch Daniels caves
It is a shame that he has not stomach for a good fight, so he is now off the list as a possible candidate. He might make the VP ranks, but he is not Presidential material for sure. I liked the idea of a guy that could get spending under control, but this guy isn't willing to fight which is a skill set that the next President is definitely going to need. The next President is going to have to be tough and fight the elites every step of the way to put the federal government back in its box. I still like Cain and Christie, but the rest of the field is pretty much a lost cause. Some one rescue us from the Republican waking undead! We need a leader with backbone and a set of stones that will do the heavy lifting of turning this country around. I am not exactly sure about Christie, but Cain seems to be on track. Cain's biggest problem is that he isn't well known and though he is showing up in all the right places and saying all the right things, only a handful of Americans have even heard his name. It is a weak field and there just doesn't seem to be anyone that the majority of Americans can rally behind (don't even say Palin because she can't get even a majority of Republicans never mind all Americans), so as Beebs says get ready for four more years of the Joker. The only thing that could derail the Joker's second term is $5 gas, which is very likely at this point, so we have a glimmer of hope if we can only find a candidate.
