Human Events has an article today where he gives suggestions to these 4 potential 2012 candidates that he feels would allow them to, "break out of the pack". Here are some of the highlights:
Mitt Romney: Play in Iowa, attack ethanol subsidies.
Lee feels Iowa is basically a wash for Romney, so why not use it to resonate with the fiscally conservative, anti-pork voters he desperately needs in New Hampshire and South Carolina, so his campaign stops in Iowa would thus not be wasted.
Haley Barbour: Make it about the Party
Lee feels Barbour is basically a man without an issue. Yet, his track record for helping build the Republican Party while it has been down, and his ability to raise money should be emphasized. It will take a billion or more to beat Obama. Barbour should also emphasis that he leaves organizations better off than he found them.
Mitch Daniels: Embrace a muscular brand of Americanism.
First, he should emphasize repeatedly what he means by the “truce” and invoke Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s landslide win in 2009, in which he ran on a campaign centered more on jobs than social issues.
Second, Daniels needs a “red meat” issue.
Tim Pawlenty: Gamble
Pawlenty is the candidate who least offends any coalition. He is also the candidate that lacks a fervent group of supporters. Right now, it seems as if his best shot at the nomination will be if voters find him to be the least offensive candidate to nominate after not getting excited by any other candidate. But that's not enough to break away from the pack.

I'm not sure that I agree with any of his suggestions. What do you think?
