Daniels Out

Now Mitch Daniels has opted against running.  I find this a bit surprising as he was being promoted heavily by various political operatives and their cohorts in the media.  What I found even more surprising was that Daniels was considered at all.  This is a man who was the budget director under Bush.  The budget director under Bush.  Somehow now what amounts to a serious Republican candidate is one of the men responsible for the reckless economic management that got us into this mess?  And I suppose his economic expertise would have allowed him to solve our problems?  Are we going to start electing arsonists to fight fires?
