Mitch Daniels Wants GOP To Get Its Priorities Straight

January 24th, 2011at 07:06am Posted by Eli

Politico loves Mitch Daniels!  He’s a Serious Grownup who wants Republicans to focus on what’s really important!

[M]uch of the admiration is rooted in the truth-teller’s focus on the looming fiscal iceberg and willingness to tell audiences what they don’t want to hear. Better yet, the candidate pushes aside the divisive social issues that are thought to be non-negotiable with the party bases.

Daniels voiced such an idea fairly explicitly in a much-buzzed-about Weekly Standard profile last summer, calling for a “truce” in the culture wars so the political class can get down to the business of repairing the country’s finances.

In other words, cultural warfare is a waste of time – we need to focus on class warfare instead.
