Gov. Mitch Daniels: Obama ‘inhabits a different planet’ on economic issues

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) said President Obama "inhabits a different planet" when it comes to the understanding of job creation and the economy. 

"I do believe the president, his life has been so far removed from the world in which jobs and wealth and prosperity are made that he doesn't understand and probably can not understand how damaging his policies are to the economic prospects of the country," Daniels said at a breakfast Friday held by The Christian Science Monitor.

"He just inhabits a different planet ... in that respect."

Daniels said that while he agrees with Obama on some issues, the president's economic policies are wrong for the country. 

He specifically cited devotion to family, education and foreign policy as points of agreement and respect.
