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.

Republicans don’t need to moderate. Republicans don’t need to rid themselves of their unpopular views. They don’t need to broaden their support.

Another round of voter suppression laws and a change in electoral college allocation will put them in the White House in 2016.

Republican poll numbers would fit in either hand.

“GOP’s poor standing with the public
While Obama has seen his poll numbers drop – albeit within the survey’s margin of error – his political standing remains significantly stronger than Republicans’.

Only 29 percent of respondents say they agree “with most” of what Republicans in Congress have proposed (versus 45 percent for Obama and 40 percent for congressional Democrats).

An identical 29 percent have a favorable view of the Republican Party (compared with 49 percent for Obama and 41 percent for the Democratic Party).”

I probably shouldn’t care, but…

According to CPAC organizers, the man has proved himself too liberal to be extended an invitation.

Anyone here know what they actually said on record, on the matter? Could be fun…

Don’t tell td anything. He things Rubio is the ace in the hole on a national scale. Guess Rove and Morrris told him that, like they brainwashed him into thinking there would be a “Romney landslide”……….

With that said, I think Rubio will be around for a long time

It’s fun watching him do the vote thing, isn’t it? I promise not to go pull numbers today, even though the temptation is there to put facts to the board.

Well, that’s just fine with Mr. Christie, I’m sure. I’d bet he’s in no hurry to be smeared with the slime from that group.

You forgot to mention that Obama garnered 4 million less votes in 2012 then he did in 2008. First time in American history that an incumbent President ever received less votes in an re election bid then he did in his first term and got re elected.

Republicans put forth a NE establishment Republican that was a moderate and the conservatives said the hell with it and stayed home. I told them they were stupid to do this (in other forums) but they kept saying they were sending a message to the party.

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.
