Maybe Mitch thinks of himself as an "adult." After all, with GWB, he spent a s*&^load of his grandchildren's money, right?
Here's Daniels' last endorsee--Lugar--being gracious after being slammed by Mourdock:
...In effect, what he has promised in this campaign is reflexive votes for a rejectionist orthodoxy and rigid opposition to the actions and proposals of the other party. His answer to the inevitable roadblocks he will encounter in Congress is merely to campaign for more Republicans who embrace the same partisan outlook. He has pledged his support to groups whose prime mission is to cleanse the Republican party of those who stray from orthodoxy as they see it.
On the other hand, if Mourdock and RoJo simply block the Socialist and Socialist-Lite (R) bozo initiatives, they will have rendered a service far greater than that of Spend-a-Holics like Lugar.
