Texas Gov. Rick Perry has challenged the women conservatives love to hate — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — to a public debate next week.In a letter obtained by The Hill, Perry requested that the pair meet for a debate during Perry’s visit to Washington next week to compare the plan he rolled out this week to “Uproot and Overhaul Washington” with the current system.
Why? Cause Perry is struggling in the polls and thinks this is a good idea. I think if Perry is struggling, he needs to focus on his current problem--winning the nomination. Nancy Pelosi is not the debate opponent he needs to show that he can do the job. Republicans don't really want to hear what Pelosi has to say.
Plus this just elevates Pelosi again, for what purpose? There is a reason why Perry is plummeting in the polling--this is just one of the reasons.
