Watch around 6:30 for former Rep. Dick Armey’s comments on Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels with his expressed intent today to sign legislation cutting Indiana Planned Parenthood funding has risen to the top of Presidential candidate discussion.

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) would be the “perfect pick” for the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, said Tea Party figurehead and former House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-Texas).

Armey, in a video posted Friday to the website of the conservative magazine Newsmax, effused praise for Daniels and expressed a preference for one of the other former governors expected to join the race as a possible alternative.

“I think Mitch Daniels would be the perfect pick for us; he’s exactly the man with the proven record that we’re looking for,” Armey said. “He has no need for sensation, but he knows how to get focused on the work and get it done.”

If not Daniels, Armey said, one of the other governors should get the nod.

The GOP establishment likes Mitch Daniels as the anti-Romney as does the Bush organization. Daniels should decide in the next day or so and then Mike Huckabee will make his intentions known.

The race for 2012 will be heating up this next week or so.

Rep Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin)at Town Hall

Astrfail is right.

USA Today exposes the fraud that is activist-organized protest at Republican town halls this recess. Their story opens with Paul Ryan calling on a man in the front row before recognizing him, “You changed clothes!” USA Today reports that the man had been at a separate event six hours earlier. Politico reports that “Citizens Action of Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Labor Council have enlisted a traveling band of seniors to follow Paul Ryan’s every move.” But the leftist activists have been unable to match genuine support for Ryan. The Weekly Standard‘s John McCormack posts video of constituents giving Ryan a standing ovation after a town hall near Milwaukee.

When the protests are NOT sincere, it is easy to expose them.

Not really a surprise.

Gov. Mitch Daniels says he will sign into law a tough anti-abortion measure that would block government dollars from going to Planned Parenthood.

The move means Medicaid recipients who use the agency’s clinics – including the 400 per year who use the one in Evansville – will be separated from their doctors.

But Daniels said in a statement that reproductive health care will still be readily available in the areas those clinics serve.

“I have ordered the Family and Social Services Administration to see that Medicaid recipients receive prompt notice of nearby care options. We will take any actions necessary to ensure that vital medical care is, if anything, more widely available than before,” he said.

The governor’s office said the bill will block government dollars from going to all 28 of Planned Parenthood’s clinics in Indiana, as well as six clinics operated by other agencies.

Those dollars – about $3 million per year for Planned Parenthood of Indiana – do not directly cover abortions. But proponents of the measure said no taxpayer dollars should go to agencies that offer the procedure.

“Any organization affected by this provision can resume receiving taxpayer dollars immediately by ceasing or separating its operations that perform abortions,” Daniels said.

The governor’s decision comes on the last day of this year’s legislative session. He has said that after the session, he will decide whether to enter the Republican presidential primary.

Next, Planned Parenthood will go to federal court and fight the defunding and Mitch Daniels may or may not announce he will be a candidate for the Presidency.

Stay tuned…..
