"Graceful? Are you kidding? he's worried about being re-elected"

Has Daniels indicated whether he is really running for re-election?

Did you forget we needed to fight a war after 9/11 -- and forestall a recession? Just like Democrats to pick their own evidence and ignore reality, just like the new Democrat Congress is doing.
Daniels' graceful retreat is just that: a retreat, not declaration of defeat and withdrawl. He now has a powerful campaign message: move Indiana forward into the future with me or stay stuck in the not-so-glorious past with Pat Bauer and his Democrat minions.
Oh, I love it! Democratic "minions." Yes, Mitch is graceful, and pretty too....

Mitch sure knows how to fight in the war against terror -- of course, back when he was young and there was a draft, he avoided military service, but that's not important because he is a Republican, and he doesn't have "minions."

Mitch did do the good fight after 9/11. When the patriot act was being written, at the very last minute as Bush's budget boy, he snuck into the act the most important part of our battle for freedom. Mitch put in the part about protecting his financial buddies at Lilly from those nasty law suits. Forget armor for our troops. Protect Lilly! Move Indiana forward under the banner of big bucks for my buddies!

There is eventually going to be a highway from Canada/Detroit to Mexico. It would make sense for the highway to go through Indiana. There will be future benefits for those states and/or areas that participate and invest. These benefits will most likely be realized by our children and grandchildren.

Maybe it is time we starting investing in their future instead of stealing from it.

I-69 is going to be done, now how can we capitalize on it. It would be nice if our reps. in Wash. DC could do their job and get more federal money for this national project.

Nothwithstanding the Colts, the best thing Indy has going for it is transportaion and distribution, which attracts manufacturing. All manufacturing is not going to go to Mexico. Long term, think of I-69 as a large assembly line and think of Indy as the hub of a manufacturing and distribution network - serving, Canada to Mexico and east coast to west coast and beyond. Nice invest for the kids and grandchildren, if we are smart enough to pull it off.

There is an old saying, "You either get better or you get worse. You can never stay the same."

Another purpose of the Interstate system is to link every major military installation. A major reason the current routing of I-69 is being pushed so hard by the federal government is because Crane is one of the few remaining military bases in the country not connected to the Interstate system.

Ord---I-69 is only being pushed for one reason...it's the NAFTA highway, they only want it, they do not care how it is routed! Only the people with a financial or a personal stake care about that! The government has closed so many military bases in the last couple of decades one more will not matter!

Driver 1, I see you're anti-highway and it also appears you don't like the military that much. I'm a captain in the Air Force, and I'm proud to have the honor to fight for our great country to defend your right to be an ass.

I suggest you get your facts straight. The Interstate Highway System was established for the purpose of enabling the military to quickly move across the country in the event of an attack, and as such, like all of the country's military installations.

Now if you are arrogant enough to believe that this country can't (or won't) be attacked, recall that it's been just a short 5 1/2 years since 9-11. Our country has been attacked before and it'll certainly happen again.

Ord---Being an Army man myself and knowing how many military posts were closed in the last twenty years, your contention that I-69 is for the military is totally off the wall! I appreciate your service and assume that you are at (Lompoc-missle) Vandenburg, been there, had family member stationed there. All male members of my family have been in the military! I actually agree with you on everything else...but...it is still the NAFTA hi-way and has nothing to do with the military! Thank you for allowing me to be a ____. As to my historical knowledge you might want to check my post on the previous page!

It's always the democrates fault. You republicans make me sick. If I remember correctly it was a republican that took a balanced budget made by a democrate and blew it complety out the door and put us so far under that it will take our great great granchildren to get it payed off. And he is still spending like a drunken sailor. But that's ok a republican did it though so that makes it right.
Bush Sr. had this country on course. When Clinton took office he enjoyed the fruits of what Bush had set in place.

During the last days of Clinton, the stock market Tec bubble popped and things started going down-hill just before GW Bush took office. George W Bush brought this country back up to the good economy we enjoy today.

The Stock Market is now much higher than anytime Clinton was ever in office.

Remember Clinton over-taxed Americans, raised the taxes on seniors, and stripped our military down to “bare” bones. He did it to make a good show.

Did we enjoy it that much? Not really, we were paying taxes through the nose. There is a higher population of people working today than when Clinton was in office.

What you say is all 100% accurate. History will bear you out.

Thank you for your service to America. Give my thanks to all your military people for the great jobs they are doing and putting their lives on the line so that we remain free.

I am sure I speak for millions of others in America and around the world.

I'm so glad Indiana will remain in the dark ages. Would be a shame to upset the delicate balance between ignorance and stupidity. As long as things never change, nobody will move here and upset the backward way we live. Ditch Mitch, and elect another moron Democrat to further bury this place. I think a toll road should be built completely bypassing Indiana, and for those who insist on driving thru charge them a $100 toll to be refunded if they leave. I am a lifelong resident and find this head in the sand attitude refreshing.
