Jacksonville’s Florida Times-Union reports that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush favors Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels for president in 2012.
Bush reportedly told a private reception for business leaders, “Mitch is the only one who sees the stark perils and will offer real detailed proposals.”
The comments come from a man who has himself been considered a potential candidate for the presidency in either 2012 or 2016.
“He would be the anti-Obama, at least socially,” Bush told the attendees.
Bush identified, then discounted, one potential hurdle for Daniels. “He’s not good on a teleprompter, but if my theory is right that could work well for him,” said Bush.
