Mitch Daniels: Flippity Flippity Flop

Mitch Daniels told THE WEEKLY STANDARD’s Andy Ferguson that the next president “would have to call a truce on the so-called social issues. We’re going to just have to agree to get along for a little while,” until economic issues are resolved.

Well, that was back in June, of 2010 … obviously the economic issues must all be resolved today, right?

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels said today he will sign a controversial bill that cuts off government funding to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

Indiana will become the first state to take such action.

“I supported this bill from the outset, and the recent addition of language guarding against the spending of tax dollars to support abortions creates no reason to alter my position,” said Daniels, a Republican.

You can’t trust any of them.  They say anything.  Way to call a truce, Governor … right on the backs of poor women!

    Shorter Daniels:

    “Yes I said that. Clearly the economy has improved. Yup, I guess it must have been Obama who did it! Wait, Obama is evil! Er, uh, I mean, we have to be bi-partisan and call a truce! Wait, I didn’t say that. Quick, somebody find a woman to blame!”

      obviously, he’s considering a run at the extremist beauty pageant called the republican presidential primary

      • bostonboomer says:

        He’s too short. He’s going to look like midget standing next to Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.

      • B KIlpatrick says:

        None of what most of the wannabe Republican candidates are doing right now makes any sense, with the possible exceptions of Mitt Romney, who is keeping his mouth shut, and Ron Paul, who is doing what he’s been doing.

        But these other guys? What are they smoking? Do they really think this nonsensical fulmination over issues that very few people care about on their side, but which will win them lots of enemies, is really going to help them?

    What a schmuck. I would LOVE it if we actually did concentrate on little matters like unemployment! That said, a big DISLIKE for the head-patting condescension of the term “so-called social issues.” Silly laydeez, amirite?

    Oh, can I tie in my little triumph of the day? I am now officially ready to move to France: have learned the French word for “epidural.”

    (OK, am still waiting for my long-stay visa, but learning the most important word in the language does make this transition seem more real.)

      I may join you if I convince my children to take all the family antiques off my hands and I can sell my house. I know I’m going to move within a year … I’m just hoping it’s to civilization.

      • Tim says:

        Good luck finding civilization. Tell me when you find it, so far the 21st century is a big disappointment, seems more like the middle ages with cellphones.
        P.S. Can I come too?

      • dakinikat says:

        yup … of course, mi casa es su casa … I’m boning back up on all my languages

      • Branjor says:

        How interesting. I just got back from a Spanish lesson (I take them once a week on Saturdays and I’m going to add Wednesdays this week.) I don’t know much yet, but your sentence was easily understandable.
        Can I come?

    Just getting to read this…what an ass!

    95% of Americans don’t even know who the H he is. Here’s hoping we keep it that way. Nobody can dig up strange fossils like the Republican Party. I swear if they could dig up Bonzo’s best friend again and prop him up on a Weekend At Bernie’s couch, they would do it. But I have to admit, a guy with a comb-over that crosses the MIDDLE of his head is a new one for even them.

    Nothing like knowing that a nobody with a Napoleon complex wants to take charge of wimminz’ lives.

    None of it matters though. Mittens is the candidate. I feel good knowing that a man who would strap a dog to the roof of his car and count on his magic underwear to keep him safe might end up running my country.
