Daniels now joins the long list of candidates who have decided not to run, making this GOP contest feel like the Democrats' in 1992. The number of candidates who decided not to run against then popular George H.W. Bush was so big Saturday Night Live ran a parody of a debate in which the candidates who didn't want to run—Bill Bradley, Richard Gephardt, Lloyd Bentsen—boasted more extravagantly than the next why they were utterly unfit to hold office. Phil Hartman, playing Mario Cuomo, declared, "I have mob ties."

Better find a centrist or the GOP is toast-
A similar statement could be used for Obama.... When he PROGRESSED with his partisan liberal agenda, he lost points... Independents aren't 100% sold on him anymore.... If his trend continues? Who knows what kind of statement independents will make..

Were Independents ever 100% sold on him? Aren't you and many of the other conservies on this forum actually Independents? Any of you ever sold on him?
Independents are who got him elected.... Not the liberal base. There are quite a few conservie independents. And there are quite a few lib leaning independents, too... Research the dynamics of American Independents and the movement of right to left, back to right, etc.... I think you might find the shift in the last 18 months interesting...

My point, if it's the lesser of 2 evils, BO will win again- If the GOP nominates some far right winger, BO will win-
I think those are pretty bold statements to make in May, 2011... ;o) My point is, he made a lot of expensive promises and he has failed an making solid changes for the betterment of America (which he promised)... He made himself look inexperienced and foolish by his own campaign words.The US economy never quite bounced back like he campaigned it would to get the stimulus passed... I don't recall the topic of waivers being discussed in regards to ObamaCare, either... He's an inexperienced f'k up to has to hire a progressive media aid because even HE is fearful that his actions will speak louder than the words he reads from his teleprompter...
