Mitch Daniels’ State of the Union response: The excerpts
He didn’t run for president, but … the Indiana governor will be offering up some tough statements against Obama tonight as he makes the GOP’s official State of the Union response. Herman Cain will also offer a response for the Tea Party, and Occupy Wall Street will also make their own response. Here’s an excerpt from Daniel’s speech:

No feature of the Obama presidency has been sadder than its constant efforts to divide us, to curry favor with some Americans by castigating others. As in previous moments of national danger, we Americans are all in the same boat. If we drift, quarreling and paralyzed, over a Niagara of debt, we will all suffer, regardless of income, race, gender, or other category. If we fail to shift to a pro-jobs, pro-growth economic policy, there will never be enough public revenue to pay for our safety net, national security, or whatever size government we decide to have.
