    Is Christie or Daniels Really Mr. Right?



    Voters often play hard to get. Eager candidates court their base. This is the common mating dance of presidential primaries. But sometimes the electorate doesn't like her options. She asks, where have all the good men gone?

    Then he's spotted. Or found. He's exactly what she needs. The girlfriends, the media, encourage him. He makes his move. They talk, dance, maybe go on a few dates. But something soon goes awry. She found him hotter from afar. He's not the man she thought he was. Mr. Right goes wrong.

    Chris Christie and Mitch Daniels are being wooed. They should also be wary. Flattery is deceptive.

    The GOP has given up on finding the perfect man. Time to be pragmatic. Republicans seek the serious sort, a provider, someone who can balance those books, that good (enough) man.

    But Daniels and Christie could face the rough side of this siren's song, that rocky shore.

    These are substantial prospects. Not her usual type. One is overweight and brusque. The other is short and nearly bald. We say she's ready to overlook the superficial. But there are larger issues. And they're more than skin deep. Both men risk personifying the adage, true in courtship and in politics, that right on paper is not always Mr. Right

    I believe the author is incorrect in his assessment of Daniels' problem with budgeting during the Bush administration. Republicans do not care about a balanced budget as much as tax cuts. Fiscal discipline is way lower on the priority list tha tax relief.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Not so much. They just see tax relief as an ends to a means to get to the balanced budget.

    The numbers during the Bush admin proved that the cuts led to increased revenues by the government. The other side of the coin was spending still wasn't kept under control.

    Make the Bush Tax Cuts permanent, and slash spending. Budget will get balanced. Gotta stop looking at one things and saying that is it.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    The author COUNSELS Men like Daniels & Christie??!! Wow.

    There are not many who are qualified to counsel those two, and none of them are journalists.
