Pence throws down the 2012 gauntlet?
I think Mike Pence just threw his hat in the ring for President in 2012. By casting a difficult "no" vote on the dreadful, pork-laden tax bill, he has served notice to Obama, beltway republicans, and tea-party voters that he's sticking to his guns when it comes to limiting unnecessary federal spending....
From Hotair -- “At the end of the day, I’ve just come to the conclusion: the American people did not vote for more stimulus,” Pence said on conservative talker Sean Hannity’s radio show. “Therefore, I will not vote for this tax deal when it comes to the floor of the House of Representatives.”
I like this guy more and more every time I hear him. If he continues to stick to the constitutional, limited government ideals he ran on and that are exhibited by this "no" vote, he could easily defeat Obama and the other moderate republicans who're running too. I can see a Pence/Palin, or Palin/Pence ticket sweeping the nation.
