Media attacks

It looks as if the Governor of Indiana, Mitch Daniels may possibly run for President of the United States.  He has been the Governor for two terms and for the most part has been a good one.  Not too much is known about him outside of Indiana but it seems he is a conservative and big business officer in private firms.  From most accounts he is a pretty good guy with upstanding character and integrity.  Too bad, he will be fodder for the media hounds who are already drooling to jump in and rip him apart.  People of high character and honesty lose before they even enter the game.  I would be surprised if he decides to enter the fray. 
People of his character and savvy are not going to put themselves out there because of what our media have become. They are like birds of prey, circling just overhead ready to strike anyone who even appears to challenge their sacred liberal agenda. They don't just ask questions or challenge issues or ideas, they attack the person with a vengeance to destroy the person and reputation. They fight dirty and aim to destroy; they hover closely to strike at any moment. They start rumors and lies about the person's character and rise up people from the person's past to castigate and intimidate the person's family and friends.

All people have done things in their past that would be embarrassing if the beam of daylight were focused directly on specific incidents. Unfortunately, the press sees itself without sin, for they surly are on the front line to cast the first stone.

It is too bad we sometimes have to settle for the second string of long-time politicians who have already been "vetted" by the media.  Most of them have spent a lifetime in politics from one position to another.  They wait in line and the political parties just seem to give the nod because it is "just their turn."
