Could a possible Mitch Daniels candidacy be the X factor in the field of 2012 candidates?
I must say that I am impressed with the potential 2012 field of candidates for the Republican nomination. Three years ago that was simply was not the case. For the first time in a long time, several truly conservative candidates might be in the top tier field. One name that has come out of nowhere and is getting some major buzz by the grassroots conservatives is Governor Mitch Daniels from the state of Indiana. People have been leaving me messages since yesterday telling me I have to check out his speech. After hearing Herman Cain speech, I thought nobody could possible top his speech, I have to admit I was wrong. I have a feeling that if the Ron Paul cult didn't once again take over the voting in the CPAC Straw Poll, Mitch Daniels would have won as most desired to run in 2012. A Mitch Daniels candidacy could mean trouble for the liberal media. As far as I know, Mitch doesn't have any skeleton's in his background, and he has proven that he can electrify the conservative base. He's a two term governor, so the experience factor can't be used by the media. If Mitch Daniels starts to gain traction within the new media, the presumed front runners like Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and others migh have a problem. This guy is good and the folks at CPAC 2011 thought so as well.
