Christie dismembers the teachers’ union president

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is the best Republican politician, maybe the best politician in either party, in championing substantive policy positions with verve, intellectual soberness and humor. Watch this speech concerning the state’s teachers’ union president:

Yeah, wow.

It is a bit dispiriting that none of the GOP presidential candidates can hold a room and impress voters and opinion makers alike in that fashion. But perhaps the winner will go to him at the end of a long, bloody campaign and say, “I need you. The party needs you. The country needs you.” And if he accepts, then whatever the outcome of the presidential race Republicans would have something to cheer and an extraordinary politician to watch.
