    First off Christie gave a lukewarm RNC speech that mainly talked about himself and never mentioned Romney. Second, at the first available opportunity Christie went out on a campaigning photo-op with the president. What visual image do you think that created for the sheep out there to see Christie locked arm in arm with the president all giggling and smiling like two little schoolgirls?

    After the first two offenses, he went on to slam the Republican House for not passing a pork laden Sandy relief bill. Instead of him chastising the Democrats for loading up the Sandy relief bill with pork barrel spending, he attacked his own party. As far as I'm concerned, Christie is a Democrat, and it is a good thing he is not invited to CPAC. He doesn't belong there, he is not one of us, he's one of them.

    Christie and Obama are both AMERICANS! They are both American leaders. While I've never before considered Christie a moderate,he may well turn out to be so.
    If the G.O.P. wants to save itself, they need to turn to leaders like Christie, Huntsman, Jindal. Rubio has a chance but he has to join the ranks of those who put our country BEFORE the party.
    As it is, the Republican party is circling the drain.

    @Neo_NtheMatrix US/THEM wow you have really gone far with your dislike of America. The US is not a homogenous society and as such we will never all agree, but we must strive for cooperation for the mutual good and welfare of all.

    @Neo_NtheMatrix A true stroke of genius CPAC. The invited governors, W,i Oh, FL, have approval ratings below 40% even Jindal of LA is down to 41% Why would you want a Gov with a 77% approval rating on your side. I just can't wait to hear what the most recent losers Mitt and Sarah have to add to this group of losers

    Again, where's the "I don't give a shit" button located????

    Christie is going to be the only hope the GOP has to regain the WH in 2016. Hilary stated she's in a "wait and see" mode in announcing her candidacy based on what Christie will be doing. She's scared of him because she knows he won't take and BS and shit off of her.

    This guy has the potential to win big because he's got support from the Dems, especially those in his state. What is he now, at a 73% approval rating or something close to that?

    Voted no an I think its a good thing (he wasn't invited), not because I am upset at christe, but because he has a very hood chance to win if he rums and anything that makes increases the odds against christe running increases the likelihood republicans will not occupy the white house...

    @Food4thoughts Depending on who the dems run he could just make history big time, winning as a third party candidate. I won't bote for him, mind you, but he is unquestionably a big facyor: authenticty, tough guy charisma, straight talk. Appealing traits from a politician...

    That's ok, he's no spoon fed governor. He puts people before his party and that should be applauded. I don't think it's right for grown men to act like children and not invite him to their "party" bc of spiteful reasons.

    What is staff wlas assured it was nothing personal , but due to the economic situation and budgetary crisis the after conference meal was switched from a buffet style to a single entre meal and so the CPAC Committee hought he would be more comfortable foregoing the conference and heading straight to Cracker Barrel

    As it stands right now the only person I would trust with America's future and interests is Christie. While I may not agree with all his opinions he's the ONLY politician in this country that was interested in the citizens and what was truly going down. He's not afraid to work with the 'enemy' and he's not afraid to listen and consider what's been brought before him. The man has shown integrity over politics. No wonder the Pubs don't like him.

    It is just wrong. Is Christie supposed to become a zombie or a cult follower? What happened to independent thinking and freedom to be one's self? This is why the pubs are like a nasty taste in the mouth that needs to be spit out.

    That's the exact same thing I said. It's a prime example of trying to lessen the guilt by blaming others.

    Wasn't Gov. Christie the Republican golden boy until Super Storm Sandy?
    I'd hate the prospects for job security if I was a Republican politician.

    Yeah, I find myself still partial to Huntsman. But I agree, Christie and Jindahl are going to be part of the Republican salvation if there's to be one.

    Seen here that some say Christie was wrong to stand up for his state (at least that is what it boils down to). The man was doing his job. He is a governor and he's looking out for the citizens of his state. That's a problem? Give me a freakin' break.

    I am glad Christie is not invited. His support of Obama "gifted" us with Obama for another 4 years.....so while his numbers may be high in his own state...he would be the last person i would want to see running for President as he brought us (through his support of Obama) another 4 years of our country being spent into oblivion , divided in ways that we have never been before and the attack of our freedoms.....

    Sometimes you have to "sacrifice" for the good of the whole. Mr. Christie does not know this concept. He has shown he only cares about his own area instead of the good of this country as a whole. If the country were back on track.....we are the most giving people in this world and support and finances would have been there from the rest of the country....instead the country is diving deeper and deeper into this financial hole that Obama has brought us.

    AND no....I am not racists....I would vote for Allen West or Benjamin Carson in a heartbeat.

    Thanks Neo.....I have stepped off my soap box for now :).....just SO tired of all the political flip - flopping. I don't think the politicians realize the meaning of the word "moral" or "integrity" anymore.......they think those words are what "they" make them.

    @Jean - What amazes me is when I turn on the radio today, the kind of filth that pumps through the speakers amounts to nothing short of soft porn. Even the movies today are laden with sex and violence. People don't recognize or realize that the American family is being torn apart at the seams. The family is the building block to society, so once it is destroyed so is society.

    Christie had several opportunities to stand for morals and convictions, he spit in the face of every one of them. He doesn't understand the connection with overspending and big government's goal of dismantling the family. Through welfare, food stamps, Section 8, and thousands of other programs, big government is on a mission to make the citizens of this country dependent on government instead of themselves.

    Why is it that people fail to see the correlation between the deterioration of society and the crime rate? Chicago come to mind? Why don't they see the abortion rate, the unemployment rate, so many other things, they're all connected. Instead they think it is okay to continue on with the status quo and kicking the can down the road.

    Christie should have taken a stand and yet instead he sided with the Democrats. If that's how he feels, I respect his decision. What I wish is that he would do like Charlie Crist and officially change parties, as he's just a Democrat now.

    @Neo_NtheMatrix

    I SO agree!!! Morality is at the heart of the problem. Too many people involved who only care about themselves an no one else. the trouble is that the number of people who are on the "freebies" and are voting are swinging the elections while the Republican party ignores their Conservative base and they stay home. The only way the mentality of the "freebies" change is when this country is so demolished that there is no one working to supply the "freebies"....then (when it is too late) they may get it.

    I hope the Republican Party wakes up before it is too late.

    I don't think that Christie skipping a meeting of true believers is a problem at all, in fact it makes him a more attractive candidate.

    The CPAC convention will provide a handy list of people who need to be retired from politics so we can actually make some progress against the myriad problems we face.

    This says rather more about CPAC than Gov Christie.

    It's clear now how the division inside the GOP is shaping. On the practical side you have Republicans like Gov Christie and John Hunstman who lean towards the pragmatic side of governing. On the ideological side there's the CPAC crowd, people like Sarah Palin, Grover Norquist and others who put purity over practicality.

    Bobby Jindal told his party to stop being "stupid". I don't see much evidence that they've taken his advice.

    After Obama gets two more Justices on the Supreme Court, he can declare the Constitution Null and Void and annoint himself as Dear Leader for Life. If Christie keeps playing his cards right, he may be given a post at one of the Regional "Re-Education Camps" in service to the DL.

    He showed his true colors. He allowed the worst president in our history to get elected for the sake of free Government relief funding. He only thinks of himself and his legacy in NJ.

    Chris Christie is a grossly fat Nu Joizee yankee liberal in conservative clothing. His photo ops with comrade Obama last fall helped defeat Romney. To hell with fatass Christie.

    Another stupid move by Conservatives. Chris Christie moves to the center after "Sandy" and all of a sudden the far right sees him as an Obama minion. This is the type of BS that makes more and more Americans lean away from conservatism. I would urge CPAC to reconsider this decision.
  • #70

    Absolutely! It's funny how the far right complains about Obama "dividing our country" and yet they go and do this? Makes me wonder who is actually doing the dividing.

    @Gtiallday both sides are contributing to the division as far as I'm concerned. 0bama and the dems aren't in the clear on this either...Basically, any knucklehead with a little (R) or (D) after name is essentially a moron contributing to the downfall of the USA...

    Here we go again. A major political party punishing one of its influential members for daring to "cooperate" with the other major political party in order to help his devastated home state., and daring to criticize his own party for its lack of empathy with the plight of the People of New Jersey. Is it any wonder we have total gridlock in D.C.? Both Democrats and Republicans appear to get more and more intolerant each day. We need OTHER major political parties if the two major ones don't give a damn about the American People.
