Luke Ford writes: Like most Republicans, I am not thrilled with our choices for president.
Rick Perry is the most right-wing but he’s a lousy debater.
I hope Chris Christie gets in, even though many of his positions are not conservative, as the Washington Post reports:
Whatever Christie’s conservative apostasies, you can’t argue that he does check one big box for Republicans right now – fiscal conservatism.
But it’s also become clear that many of the attacks in the presidential race so far could find a welcome target in Christie. His ability to parry them and still win over some very finnicky conservative voters remains a very big question, no matter his debate savvy.
And given the status with which he would enter the race, it would certainly be a barrage from day one.
