Daniels desmiente por enésima vez que vaya a ser candidato



The Indianapolis Star:
Gov. Mitch Daniels says he is receiving more calls urging him to get into the race for president, but will not change his mind.

(...) Daniels, speaking to reporters this morning, said he was “aware of the noise” but will not rethink his decision.

“I never wanted to run, never planned to run,” Daniels said.

But he said the Republican National Convention, scheduled for August in Tampa, may be a contested or brokered convention, something not seen in decades.

“It is not impossible that no one gets there with the thing locked up,” he said.

Asked if Republicans are right to be concerned about the state of their GOP field against Obama, Daniels said that the concerns “originate in people’s very sincere alarm about the condition of the country and it’s direction. If it weren’t that, I don’t think you’d have quite the degree of urgency of finding someone who’s capable of presenting a winning alternative. I think it absolutely originates in a concern I share and talk about a lot, that we are in a very dangerous place and we need a very different set of policies in this country. When you overlay that on a field that hasn’t yet shown an ability to win in the fall, you get what you’ve got.”

Es la típica estrategia de "me presente por mi país y PIR el partido es un momento critico"

Ya lo he comentado en lso comentarios de unos posts más abajo.

A mí me resulta impensable que Daniels se presente a las primarias. Un candidato que no tuvo valor para presentarse hace meses, con tiempo para organizarse, ¿va a tener valor de hacerlo en estas condiciones? Lo dudo.

Creo que no es momento para cobardes.

Me parece nefasto para Romney. Significa que el establishment republicano empieza a dudar muy seriamente de su capacidad de victoria. Y eso es demoledor para él, que ha basado su estrategia en presentarse como el candidato "inevitable".
