George Will Calls Governor Daniels a Libertarian Conservative - I Disagree

What do you all think of George Will's national column today titled "Danielsism' takes a Hoosier state of mind" in which he calls Governor Daniels a libertarian conservative. I personally take offense with this, as Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Indiana.

What do you all think?

When Daniels came to Richmond, he told Gayle Bond "I'm a Libertarian at heart". I think David Bergland's statement would have been an appropriate response. "When it gets down to your balls, come see us."

I actually think Mitch Daniels has taken some SMALL steps in the right direction; that being said, he could only be called a "Libertarian Conservative" in an era of large government!

I think Mitch Daniels will serve one term...

Daniels must check his heart at the door when he enters his office, then. I haven't heard him make the case to the people of Indiana for an across-the-board budget cut of even 1%.

He may think he's got some Libertarian in him, but when I hear him speak, the image that comes to mind is Nixon saying, "We're all Keynesians now".

Mr. Daniels received 1,302,912 votes, or 53 percent.

With a 44 percent approval rating, he has lost the equivalent of 221,495 supporters.

Considering the governor's margin of victory was 189,012, today he would lose the election by 32,483 votes (about the same number of Libertarian voters.)

Now let's ask ourselves...

Did the 221,495 voters who have spurned the Daniel's administration since the election waste their votes?

Or did the 2.2 million Republicrats whose votes were cancelled by the opponent waste their votes?
