ALBION – Even though Gov. Mitch Daniels decided not to run for the GOP presidential nomination he does have some advice for whoever ends up taking on President Barack Obama this fall.
“It won’t be enough – frankly it shouldn’t be enough – to just say ‘Things are terrible, he’s made them worse and I’m not him’,” Daniels said.
Instead, he said, Republicans need to offer up a positive, constructive program to create growth and address the country’s debt, which he calls the biggest, non- military threat the nation has ever faced.
“We’ve got to make some really big changes happen in this country so this election ought to be about those kinds of changes and explaining and really leveling with the American people about the fix we are in and what we are going to do about it,” he said.
Even though some complain the race for the GOP nominee has gotten too ugly and is dragging out too long, Daniels does not believe it has hurt the Republican’s chances for this fall.
“The nomination contests tend to exaggerate differences between people,” he said. “By the fall it’s going to be one-on-one, somebody versus the president and I think all these things that are in the news every day will be long forgotten at that point.”
Daniels said Republicans are very united in their belief that Obama should not be reelected so they will eventually come together and support their nominee, just as the Democrats will back Obama.
“The real question is ‘Will the campaign speak in a persuasive and welcoming way to the people who are up for grabs?’,” he said.
Daniels was in town Thursday for the announcement that Busche Enterprise Division is expanding its operation and creating up to 120 new jobs by 2015. Following the press conference, he stopped by the Albion New Era office for an interview.
Now in the final stretch of his second term as governor, Daniels was asked right before Christmas to deliver the Republican response to Obama’s State of the Union address.
He received high praise for the speech that echoed many of the sentiments he wrote in his book, “Keeping the Republic: Saving America by Trusting Americans.”
Daniels said Americans can be trusted with the facts, including the state of entitlement programs.
“We’re going to have to change Social Security and Medicare – not for the people who are in them (now), not for the next few years – but they are not only going to implode and hurt the people they serve but they are going to hurt the whole economy – hurt all the other people too,” Daniels said. “We’re going to have to do it.”
He also said Republicans should take a message of growth to the American people that the United States doesn’t have a chance of remaining the country we have known if this economy doesn’t start growing much faster and keep growing.
“Without the growth we can’t possibly pay the bills,” Daniels said. “You can’t tax your way out, you can’t cut your way out, you’re going to have to grow as an essential part of saving America.”
During the interview, Daniels talked about everything from gas prices to college basketball and those “Ditch Mitch” bumper stickers. Here are some of his comments:
Q. Taking a look at where the national race is now, specifically on the Republican side, any regrets about not throwing your hat in the ring?
A. It was never anything I intended to do in the first place. After, it seemed like a thousand people I respect asked me to, I did take a look at it. I’m convinced I made the right call for our family. I have five girls - four daughters and my wife - that I think are very happy with the decision.
Q. Given the right set of circumstances, would you consider a run as vice president?
A. It won’t happen. I learned very early on in this business that you don’t answer hypothetical questions.
Q. With $4 per gallon gasoline, how beatable is President Obama?
A. I thought even before the gas price hikes that Obama was beatable. This is the weakest recovery ever from a recession. We’ve blown literally trillions of dollars and have nothing to show for it.
Q. How do you handle the criticism that comes with your job?
A. It’s funny, I had a female farmer in eastern Indiana tell me not to worry about it. She said, ‘Dogs don’t bark at parked cars.’ We don’t park the car. We keep it in motion. And when you do this, criticism goes with it. If you don’t do anything, you don’t make anybody mad. But how good would you feel when you were done? When you just sat there and enjoyed the view while the state kept sinking? We got big things done. They made us a leader and we’re now noticed nationally for a whole lot of reasons. And most Hoosiers, I think, are proud of that. Most people are fair-minded, and will judge you on the whole.
Q. Who do you have winning your NCAA bracket?
A. To be honest, I don’t sleep well until North Carolina, Duke and Kentucky are all gone. … I count myself fortunate to be at the IU game earlier this year, when they beat Kentucky. It was fabulous. Of all the sporting events I’ve had a chance to see live, that’s right there near the top. I can’t say enough about Coach Crean. I remember telling him, maybe it was after his first year, “When you win a national championship at IU, some of us will not be more proud or admiring of you than for what you did that first year.” He showed so much character and integrity. He coached his brains out, with so little hope of beating anybody. I really admire what he did. It’s what people do under the worst of circumstances sometimes you admire as much as the great triumphs.
Q. Peyton Manning has meant so much to the state, on and off the field. Was it the right move to let him go?
A. Like most Hoosiers, I’m still in Post-Peyton Depression. Of course, he was a spectacular player, but even more than that, a great citizen. You can’t blame anyone or anything. All these different details and events had to happen at the same time—the neck injury, his contract being up, luck being available in the draft, the Colts falling so far to get the first pick. Any one of those things doesn’t happen and Peyton’s probably still a Colt. It was really the perfect storm. We wish him well. My hope is and my belief is he’ll continue to make his home with us.
Q. What are your plans after office?
A. I told everyone that they are working until the very last day. I’ve got to model that same behavior myself and not be thinking much about the hereafter, at least for a while.
Daniels said he doesn’t see himself running for office again but he may return to business. He would like to join a friend or two and take a motorcycle ride out west without any plans or schedules to follow.
