South Philly and Indiana governor Mitch Daniels today on fox shooting down speculation that.
He'd consider being Mitt Romney's running mate.
Well this after creating quite a stir this week when he told the Indianapolis Star news quote.
You have to campaign to golf or not just to win look at everything through the minds of people that get to would she Romney doesn't talk that way.
-- -- I'm Chris Wallace asked him about that controversial comment today on FOX News Sunday.
What did you mean when you said Romney doesn't -- -- why.
-- -- saying that that he he's got the right prescription for America.
He's he's meeting the objective that I hoped our party would -- of offering specific positive constructive.
-- and remedies for our debt problem -- are slow growth problem.
But as things go along I just want to encourage him to express these very same principles more often from the standpoint of the young the poor.
Those who have yet to -- start up the -- of life.
Let's bring back -- campaign insiders Doug shown -- -- -- ability AA.
Right Doug was -- -- it back there what well he was walking -- back a bit but not all the way he's basically saying.
Not only does there have to be a vision.
But there has to be an inclusive Republican Party and you know the problem with the Republicans the over the primary electorate is so conservative -- That Romney being severely conservative as he.
Characterized himself has not been inclusive like Jack -- or even Ronald Reagan right pat do you think Mitch Daniels.
Was actually telling the truth absolutely I -- I think he -- look what he talked about he's walked the walk he did it in reply to the state of the union.
Which we've talked about which -- thought was impressive for.
But that terrible thing to try to happy and so the president.
But he did he talk about a constructive idea for the Republican Party it up about the crisis of the country with a deficit is about helping the disadvantaged.
One of the things Republicans need to understand is that the matters in politics right how big it is you're saying don't have an attachment to voters showing you -- -- be -- speak for those who don't speak for themselves.
If it keeps the Republican groups being so hard -- class -- did you notice how -- was dressed today yes you see that we had to have an insurance open.
But I guess time I send you another -- that's Mitch Daniels in -- Romney ought to heed him.
Well at least he wasn't wearing and it's not to be vice president if -- -- Magnus sweater vest Leo well that -- that a.
-- -- -- Congressman you and your colleagues who put together a check list for the candidates and I want a very quickly name Romney's checklist you put together.
-- as a turnaround expert who will turn around the economy.
Project a positive inspirational message and here's -- one I want you to answer.
Look and act like -- president's stop trying to be likeable it is that what Mitch Daniels was sort of saying.
What you say and not the second personally -- saying got to inspire people with a positive message you put up a minute ago the poll showing that.
The people -- against Obama are voting for Romney and obviously that he's gonna get all the anti Romney votes.
But sitting out there in every one of these states are gonna be about 7%.
Of the vote who were on this side of -- -- can be won over in part by an inspirational.
Positive message from governor Romney and that's what he has a lot in his background to talk about where he can say.
Good things that he's -- to do not just trash Obama.
We're already into that now we can go beyond matter that's what -- -- we just have a bullet.
Think so and I think we have that we had he had an opportunity this week it didn't use it when the space shuttle was retired -- -- people's reaction.
The president is apparently yet for all federal experiment and federal spending except for space and and and cutting -- cutting defense.
This looked for Romney to be we'll talk about the idea that we can have this we can do things.
Would be very positive it's about American exceptional as a -- -- -- -- simply doesn't use another one is the corruption going on the watch that Wall Street Journal -- interesting thing.
People feel that President Obama has not change Washington they actually think Romney would change it more.
I got a fast forward to the checklist for the president going to be fair and balanced here now that you guys have come up with a following -- president use all of the presidential powers to goose economic growth.
He's Biden surrogates commercials super pacs and finally out organized state by state on the ground.
They're they're doing the third one they have an aggressive grassroots.
Campaign spent a lot of money -- hackable one big I -- -- exactly.
The one that I think -- most common is the first.
We don't have an idea from the president what his visions we've got a lot of attacks we've got a lot of positioning.
And covering there.
-- positions on energy but ultimately we don't know where the president is gonna take.
The country in the second term pat was talking about 1980 if we don't have a vision.
For the country going forward the president runs the risk of that happening.
That yeah well that's right because look what they're gonna ask -- what makes his next -- different from this -- other than you're not you opponent.
And that message -- we suffered in 1980 from not being able to produce that message and the Obama campaign seems to have the baby did it in favorable Michael mutual oracle.
I think we have time I -- juxtaposed to sound -- Obama then Romney take a listen.
I -- born with a silver spoon -- the president's a nice guy.
But we just can't afford him for four more years our kids can't afford it.
Congressman it's a preview of the respective team absolutely.
The president's -- -- class warfare thing given -- to this rich guy Romney right which that's not presidential.
And it really isn't right for president to attack his fellow Americans who have done wallets on American some I'm presidential and then the other one.
That's Romney being Smart he's saying he's -- nice guy.
But he's not up to the job and that ultimately is what's gonna take down Obama all right how a packet -- Doug -- congressman John -- -- -- -- to -- you are campaigning -- -- thank you so much guys.
