Are there any issues Republicans should stand for Mitch?

Today Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana was dealt a serious blow to his chances for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, when he caved in to the walk-out by Democrats in the Indiana House over a controversial right-to-work bill. 
It would be unfortunate if other bills are caught up in the turmoil, he said.  --Oh, yeah, Mitch and whose fault would that be? 
He will not send out state police to corral the Democrats, the Republican governor said.--
There's a lot of leadership for you.
The Democrat minority has (the) right to express its views, he added.-- 
So Mitch are you saying it is OK for the Democrats to take their ball and go home if they don't get what they want?

So, let's see, at the CPAC convention Mitch Daniels said to lay off the social issues; and now I guess he's telling his fellow Republicans, by his actions to lay off the fiscal issues. So, what principles are left for the GOP to stand for? Mitch if you had any hopes of winning the GOP nomination in the 2012 presidential race I have these words for you: Na, na, na, na---na, na, na, na----Hey, Hey, Hey--Good bye!
