Indiana governor and potential presidential candidate Mitch Daniels issues a statement on the House Republican budget: 

The House budget resolution is the first serious proposal produced by either party to deal with the overriding issue of our time. The national debt we are amassing threatens the livelihood and the liberty of every single American, and in particular the life prospects of our young people.

Anyone criticizing this plan without offering a specific and equally bold program of his own has failed in the public duty to be honest and clear with Americans about the gravest danger we are facing together.

So far, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and liberal pundits have not taken up Daniels' challenge. I'll update this post if they do.

Don't hold your breath.
