New Site Petitions Indiana Governor To Run For White House

Apparently, a Virginia man is unhappy with the GOP options for Presidential candidates.  Matt McKillip has decided to draft the candidate he believes is the right man for the job:  Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana.

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels

McKillip has started the website in the hopes of gaining enough signatures to persuade the Hoosier State Governor to enter the 2012 Presidential contest.

According to the site, “Since 8 p.m. EST on January 21, 6,565 Americans have signed” – as of 11:22am Eastern Time.

Will enough signatures be enough to convince Governor Daniels to run?  Will American voters have enough time to learn who and what Mitch Daniels is?  Given the high rate of disdain for the current GOP candidates that many are expressing on social media sites, at this point, anything is possible

  1. Oh yeah, he did a bang up job on Indiana’s interstate highway system toll road section, whatever. But his site has left out some important facts about how Daniels got the four billion dollars to do other things for Indiana. Yes, what was left out was he sold a big section of Indiana’s interstate to a Spanish consortium between Spain and Austrailia to charge motorists a toll, since it’s a toll road, duh, and guess what? Indiana doesn’t get a penny out of the toll. Every dime goes to Spain, and they get to keep it….for 10 years!!

    I didn’t know a governor could sell part of the Interstate Highway System that was paid for by U.S. taxpayers! I thought that was government property and didn’t belong to the states the highways go through other than being patrolled by that states, State Police forces, and that states Sheriff’s Dept..

    But I guess I am wrong or something about a state being able to sell part of government property without the Congress having to pass some sort of a bill that allows that state to sell that part of the Interstate.

    And doesn’t creating a bunch of new offices and dept’s run up debt in that state? Do you mean to tell me that Indiana didn’t have a motor vehicle office where people go to get their driver’s license? How did they get vehicle registration and whatnot? I don’t know about Gov. Daniels. He had real good words against Obama, and I liked what he said, but one speech doesn’t make him a President of the most powerful nation on Earth, or it used to be.
