Conservatives have no interest in what Chris Christie might say

Yup, it's a real head-scratcher.

Yup, it's a real head-scratcher.

Chris Christie is a nationally popular Republican governor of a blue state in the Northeast, a region where the GOP barely remains competitive. He has a 74 percent approval rating, in a state that Barack Obama carried by 18 percentage points. In fact, no Republican presidential candidate has managed to carry New Jersey since 1988.

Yet Christie has been pointedly NOT invited to speak to the highly influential Conservative Political Action Conference, which meets in Washington, D.C. next month. The confab is widely considered an essential showcase for Republicans with presidential aspirations.

Bobby Jindal will be there. A speech by Ted Cruz will close the convention. The NRA’s Wayne LaPierre has a place of honor on the program. Under the rubric “America’s Future: The Next Generation of Conservatives,” Republican up-and-comers Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul and Sarah Palin — wait, Sarah Palin? — will thrill convention-goers.

And for anyone who has grown nostalgic for those wonderfully intelligent, provocative 2012 Republican presidential debates, Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum will play featured roles.

But no Chris Christie. According to CPAC organizers, the man has proved himself too liberal to be extended an invitation. The pristine conservative minds of CPAC attendees must not be offended by exposure to someone who dares to venture outside the approved ideology, even if that someone might offer the party a way out of the political wilderness. For much the same reason, the Log Cabin Republicans and GOProud, two gay Republican groups, have once again been banned outright from the convention.

So, same as it ever was.

He’s also one of only 4 presidents in the last century to exceed 51% of the popular vote in BOTH elections. Even St. Ronnie of California didn’t do that.

If the GOP puts forth a Southern “true conservative” candidate, they’re going to get beat even worse in 2016. That message doesn’t resonate with America in the 21st Century. You’re applying a horse and carriage message to an iPad world.

Actually, Obama’s final popular-vote margin was 4.96 million, which is considerably more than 3 million. In both his victories, he got a higher percentage of the vote than Bill Clinton or George W. Bush ever did.

And Regan had the highest percentage of the vote then any other President in the modern era. What did that do for the Republican cause 8 years later?

I had to double check as I thought you were talking about Bush I instead of GW Bush. As for strong 3rd party votes, Clinton’s elections, especially 1992, was the only one that qualifies for that distinction.

1988 Election Results
Bush: 53.37%
Dukakis: 45.65%
Ron Paul: 0.47% 3rd place

1992 Election Results
Clinton: 43.01%
Bush: 37.45%
Perot: 18.91% 3rd place

1996 Election Results
Clinton: 49.24%
Dole: 40.71%
Perot: 8.40%

2000 Election Results
Bush: 47.87%
Gore: 48.38%
Nader: 2.74%

2004 Election Results
Bush: 50.73%
Kerry: 48.27%
Nader: 0.38%

Getting 2.74% and .38% is NOT a strong national support showing. :lol:

Democrats can only chortle with glee at this since, if it continues, a Democratic victory in 2014 and 2016 will, seemingly, be all but assured.

However, Democrats have a long history of self-destructive behavior and snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

I am not convinced that either Rick would not have received more votes then Romney did in the General election. Romney actually won the independents but 9 million conservatives stayed at home. Romney won the primary, not because of the media, but because he had more money and had been organizing for 6 years and the Republicans have long held stupidity that it is the runner ups time after the sacrificed in the previous election.

td – Total BS. The only national election was the Presidential election and Obama won by 3 million votes of 130 million cast.

Dude, your side has lost the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 national elections. That means the majority of the people of this country didn’t want a republican president.

(insert whine about Electorial College / non mandate / less votes cast / etc, etc here)

I am sure you leftest are going to call Woodward a extreme right wing Republican now or even better a racist.

“The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward ripped into President Barack Obama on “Morning Joe” today, saying he’s exhibiting a “kind of madness I haven’t seen in a long time” for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns.

“Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying, ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?’” Woodward said.

“Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need?’” Or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters,’ … because of some budget document?”

The Defense Department said in early February that it would not deploy the U.S.S. Harry Truman to the Persian Gulf, citing budget concerns relating to the looming cuts known as the sequester.

“Under the Constitution, the President is commander-in-chief and employs the force. And so we now have the President going out because of this piece of paper and this agreement. ‘I can’t do what I need to do to protect the country,’” Woodward said.

Or you could say that Republicans won 5 out of the past 9 elections. It depends on where you want to start your counting.

I’m all for getting the lunatic fringers at CPAC trying to outcrazy each other.

Ladies and gentlemen! Pull up a seat and let us tell you about the stupid, lazy black mooches on the Dem Plantation! Also we’ll have a scintillating expose on the sluts and prostitutes who want FREE birth control! Later we’ll have a roundtable on the takers vs. makers and how to blow up abortion clinics!

Our fabulous list of successful conservative speakers will be – Alan “the Black Joe McCarthy” West, Joe Walsh (the nimrod dead beat dad, not the rocker), Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock (from the death to abortion crowd), George “Macaca” Allen, Sharron Angle (not angel) and Christine “the foxy witch” O’Donnell.

Who will help us close out our festivities with the BIG topic for 2016!

How to get crushed in a national election!

“this is an admission obama is a failed president.”

I guess Republicans are a failed party then. They couldn’t beat a failed president?! Things must be really, really bad for Republicans.

If you consider the failed president equation Obama won 27,000,000 votes.

Here we go again with the liberal incantations,”The GOP is going stale, the GOP is too batty, ect….”

The really bad part is the biased news media will continue to report it. CNN is shaping the news for homosexuals, MSNBC and AJC is constantly attacking the GOP with lies and innuendos. The white republicans who founded this country is demonized, lied about, and every little mistake in forming the greatest nation on earth is put under a magnifying glass by left extremist. As many of you have confessed spending is not a problem but a demand. Let the rich corporations and billionaires pay for it. LOL. I think we should PUT A CONTROL ON the news media and demand they report facts only as news or shut them down. Let’s attack the first amd for a while and see if we can get some CONTROL on it.

Is that what you were saying with his books during the GWB administration or those series of articles that brought down Nixon?

Maybe, just maybe Woodward is a REAL journalist and treats both parties equally?

why is obama sending out his secretaries to talk about how dire obamas sequestration will be? dont they know these cuts was obamas idea? every single time i see one of his secretaries on tv screaming about it they are in fact admitting obama was an idiot for proposing sequestration in the first place.

Keep Up the Good Fight!
