Like Romney, Obama seems to take great pride in his efforts to be all things to all people. Christie, on the other hand, just doesn’t give a damn.
Will that unique strategy work in 2012? Maybe not. But you can be sure that facing Christie in a primary fight will make Romney a better candidate in the general election. Just like a rough-and-tumble general election battle between Christie and Obama would make the latter a better president over the next four years.
In the end, America needs a candidate like Christie on the national stage. It’s time to raise the game.
