Tully Takes Daniels to Task for Lost Half Billion

Indianapolis Star political columnist Matthew Tully didn't take the Daniels administration's losing track of a half billion dollars lightly. Reacting to the Governor's response to Pat Bauer's criticisms ("When I want management advice, I won't start with Bauer"), Tully remarks
"Snootiness isn't an appropriate strategy for a guy who now has responsibility for $526 million worth of accounting mistakes. As I read his words Thursday, I recalled the jokes he relentlessly unleashed as a candidate in 2004 about the previous administration's management errors. Defend Daniels all you want, but his administration has racked up a hefty record of foul-ups -- from the bungled welfare privatization to what seems to be an inability to count."
