Mr. Rajoy keeps touring among the related media, insisting on his strategy of “being on the centre”. Mr. Rajoy spoke yesterday on the SER radiostation, leftist oriented, and had a chat with the radio commentator Mr. Francino. And he explained his idea of the new era on the PP: the marianismo.
It comes to be a period on the PP where Mr. Aznar, the former Spanish president, is someone about whom being ashamed. And so did Mr. Rajoy. Also, he explained the new concept on the PP, summarized on four words: centre, women, dialog, future. There is nothing else: happiness for everybody and being happy to be on the oposition.
Mr. Rajoy is completing his strategy designed time ago, where he decided to apply again to be the leader of the PP. The first was to blame the persons of reference on the PP: Mr. Acebes (who links the new PP with the obsession of knowing the true about the terrorist attacks on the 11-M, and thus with the legitimization of Mr. Zapatero, converted on a de-legitimization of Mr. Rajoy for the PSOE); Mr. Zaplana (idem); Mr. Pizarro (who links Mr. Rajoy with his electoral debacle on March, 9th); Ms. San Gil (with links Mr. Rajoy with any extremist position with regard to the fight of the terrorism); and so on. The second step was to blame the COPE and El Mundo – radiostation and newspaper -, which links Mr. Rajoy again with extremist positions. And the third is to break the link with Mr. Aznar, who links Mr. Rajoy (according to him) with extremist position too.
Now Mr. Rajoy, similar to Mr. Zapatero after being elected on March, 11th, 2.004, whose first interview was on the hostile media COPE, did his first interview on the SER radiostation. What is the purpose of this? Mr. Rajoy, similar to Mr. Zapatero, liked to demonstrate his centrist character. With a difference: while Mr. Zapatero had nothing to loose, Mr. Rajoy will not win anything. Mr. Zapatero demonstrated valor to his bases; Mr. Rajoy wanted to capture the “centrists” votes, but… does the centrists listen to the SER radiostation?
The second point of this strategy was the declarations of Mr. González Pons (from PP), asking the Catholic Church in Spain to support the PP through the COPE radiostation. Well, this is nothing but curious, since the PP and Mr. Rajoy were the ones to blame before the COPE. Curious, but this is another milestone on the strategy of the new PP.
Seems to me that Mr. Rajoy strategy is, in its origin, empty as Mr. Zapatero’s personality. He has nothing new to sell, because he is from a long time on politics, and also because the change on one person, even in politics, is impossible on three weeks or three months. And, because this emptiness, Mr. Rajoy has, similar to Mr. Zapatero, the need to sell only slogans. Here is my recomendation to him: centre, women, dialog, future, sex, drugs and rock’and’roll. It is better than yours, and more leftist.
