A Quick Thought on Media Coverage of Mitch Daniels Leaving the Race
I’ve been reading quite a bit of commentary about Mitch Daniels deciding not to run for the Presidency and I admit to some surprise at something. There is an awful lot of weeping, moaning and gnashing of teeth at his departure, which makes no sense to me because he had zero chance of winning the Republican nomination. Zero. None. Nada. Zilch.
He doesn’t have the fundraising prowess or organization of Romney. He doesn’t have the base bona fides of Bachmann. And to top it all off, he’s about as exciting as getting a pair of black socks for Christmas.
Why anyone thought he had a chance is beyond me.
