Mitch Daniels Out of Presidential Race

Many conservatives out there were just like me this weekend and breathed a sigh of relief when they saw that Mitch Daniels was out of the presidential race. Washington Post:

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels won’t seek the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, a decision that could well throw the field open to other late entrants.

“In the end, I was able to resolve every competing consideration but one, but that, the interests and wishes of my family, is the most important consideration of all,” Daniels said in a statement emailed to supporters early Sunday morning. “If I have disappointed you, I will always be sorry.”

No worries, Mitch.  We aren’t disappointed…not even a little bit.

Daniels’ decision not to run ends months of public speculation about his interest in the race in which he went from entirely uninterested to a man on the verge of a national bid.

And, it almost certainly means that an already wide-open race for the GOP nomination in 2012 will become even more so in the coming weeks.

Daniels would just be another weak candidate in a long list of GOP contenders.  We don’t need moderates, one who is willing to compromise on core conservative issues in order to get a nod, or another candidate with a weak and watered down message.
