No thanks, Mr. Daniels.

I guess Mitch Daniels never heard of Kermit Gosnell.

Via Politico on how super-cool Daniels thinks running for the GOP nomination would be and how much cash he could raise:

Just as concerned about the possibility are some high-profile social conservatives in the GOP who were upset with his call last year for a truce on cultural battles to focus on economic matters. They won’t be happy to learn that Daniels told POLITICO he stands by that message and won’t back down from it when he addresses the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday.

Seriously? As if our problems are merely economic. Mr. Daniels, with all respect, solving our fiscal problems won’t make a damn bit of difference in the end if we fail to reverse the culture of death.

Via Pundette, Mark Steyn targets those like Daniels who would prefer to bury their heads in the sand and wish the abortion reality away:

As I was leaving Fox News last night, I glanced up at the monitor and caught Juan Williams expressing mystification to Sean Hannity as to why Republicans in Congress were wasting the country’s time on a “little thing” like abortion.

Gee, I dunno. Maybe it’s something to do with a mass murderer in Pennsylvania, or Planned Parenthood clinics facilitating the sex trafficking of minors. From the Office of the District Attorney in Philadelphia:

Viable babies were born. Gosnell killed them by plunging scissors into their spinal cords. He taught his staff to do the same. 

This is a remarkable moment in American life: A man is killing actual living, gurgling, bouncing babies on an industrial scale – and it barely makes the papers. Had he plunged his scissors into the spinal cord of a Democrat politician in Arizona, then The New York Times, ABC, CBS, NBC and everyone else would be linking it to Sarah Palin’s uncivil call for dramatic cuts in government spending. But “Doctor” Kermit Gosnell’s mound of corpses is apparently entirely unconnected to the broader culture.

Why? Well, because it’s all about a woman’s “right to choose”.

And in the wake of Gosnell and the constant parade of Planned Parenthood  exposés, Mitch Daniels stands by his message and won’t back down: no abortion fights.  Because it doesn’t matter.

What a man.

This is presidential:

The real question today is not when human life begins, but, What is the value of human life? The abortionist who reassembles the arms and legs of a tiny baby to make sure all its parts have been torn from its mother’s body can hardly doubt whether it is a human being. The real question for him and for all of us is whether that tiny human life has a God-given right to be protected by the law — the same right we have.

This is not:

[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.

No, we won’t.

  1. Governor Daniels is not presidential material. I’m thankful for the job he has done helping to keep Indiana’s fiscal house in order. I can see him being an important member of a Republican administration, but not President.

  2. I saw Daniels’ comment and it made him drop a notch in my estimation. He was certainly one of the ones I was considering to support.
