CPAC: Chris Christie’s not invited this year

posted at 7:21 pm on February 25, 2013 by Allahpundit

I have my issues with him just like you do, but c’mon. Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush are conservative enough to speak at CPAC but not Christie? He’s the current vice chair of the RGA and will be chairman next year for the midterms. He’s headed for a landslide reelection victory in a deep blue state, where his approval rating is currently the highest for a New Jersey governor in the 17 years since Quinnipiac started tracking that. He’s one of the few members of the party with a national profile who’s reasonably well liked by voters across the board. Leverage his popularity, if only for a day.

I understand wanting to punish him for slobbering all over Obama after Sandy, but how do you find a spot for Chris Hayes and not for this guy? For cripes sake, Joe Scarborough’s spoken at CPAC. David Frum could probably get on a panel if he really tried. Their definition of “conservative” isn’t strict.

At least eight potential presidential contenders will be speaking at CPAC: Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, and Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania.

There will also be five former presidential candidates attending: Romney, Perry, Santorum, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich of Georgia, and former Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin of Alaska…

One potential 2016 hopeful who won’t be there, however — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Despite being the keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention and having a sky-high approval rating in the Garden State, CPAC officials told First Read Christie was not invited.

Christie rankled some on the right with his public support for President Obama’s handling of Hurricane Sandy in the weeks leading up to the 2012 election.

All they’re doing here, whether they realize it or not, is throwing him into the briar patch. Christie was never going to run as the conservative choice in 2016 and lord knows he’s not going to run as a conservative to get reelected in New Jersey. That’s how Democrats will try to paint him, of course, but now he has fresh evidence to rebut the charge — he’s unwelcome at the preeminent gathering of American conservatives. CPAC’s unwittingly helping him burnish his brand as the country’s most formidable centrist Republican. Expect him to gets lots of mileage out of it in interviews over the next month.

Maybe Netroots Nation will snap him up for this year’s gala instead. Exit question: Was last night’s photo op with FLOTUS the last straw?

It’s a two-way.

They didn’t want to give him the opportunity to turn it down…

…and they didn’t want to take the chance he accepts, and decides to use it as his Sistah Soulja moment.

…which Enrico Caruso would exactly try and do.

Or, on the outside, it was a deal with Romney.

budfox on February 25, 2013 at 7:27 PM

Christie is a bloated turn coat. I lost what little respect I had for him when he threw his hissy fit over the Sandy Pork Bill and attacked the House for not serving up the fat.

jawkneemusic on February 25, 2013 at 7:28 PM

Oh come on! By 2016, Christie will be a democrat. Some of us have seen the pompous blowhard for the hack politician that he is from the very beginning. Christie lost republicans votes with his slobbering kissing up to Obama and even sat next to him at the Governor’s conference today. Stop trying to tell us that he is a conservative or even a RINO. The man is whoever he has to be to win an election.

The conservative movement’s bursting at the seams with people, I guess, after our smashing victory in 2012. They just can’t accommodate him this year.

KingGold on February 25, 2013 at 7:32 PM

Stoopid. We can always count on someone, somewhere in conservative leadership to bring it.

No room in the tent for gays or fat white RINOs?

Gay conservative are still conservatives, and while Christie is impure and unreliable he is immensely popular and has been known on occasion to speak in terms of economic realities.

Better to have them in the tent and deal with them on the inside.

Maybe they think he’s gay.

They were probably worried that he would be offended by (or try to eat) the obama-head-shaped urinal cakes in the men’s room (does Christie use the men’s room?).

Briar patch is maybe the right analogy for NJ, but not for national politics.

I look forward to seeing the hordes of moderate RINO grassroots that we’re always hearing about from the like of Kathleen Parker mobilize in 2016.

Whole lot of hot air for something that may not be true. The WaPo article claims this information came from “someone close to CPAC who was not authorized to speak publicly.”

Leverage his popularity? With whom? AP, you demonstrate why the GOP is fast becoming a minority party. I don’t give a rats behind what the liberals in NJ think of Christie and just because he has an R by his name doesn’t make him conservative or good for America. You need to stop drinking the liberal kool-aid that has given us the colossal failures of McCain and Romney, who both by the way, are more conservative than Christie. JEESH!

It seems odd to chastise CPAC for not inviting a speaker and to use, as justification, the fellow’s immense popularity with Democrats.

Christie isn’t a conservative, he isn’t even a rino, he’s a democrat. Let him run in the primary against Hillary in 2016.

BeachBum on February 25, 2013 at 7:42 PM

Ummm.. Christie is not a conservative. I have problems with them excluding GOProud, but not this guy. He is a blowhard jerk and didn’t get an invitation precisely because he would have used that to condemn conservatives.

And AP, yes being centrist R works in NJ but to win a R primary you need to win in places like SC and IA. Don’t think that Rubio doesn’t already have the commercials created to destroy Krispy Kreme ala Orange Charlie. Krispy’s given so much good material over the last few years.

And he also needs to hear the message that Republicans really didn’t enjoy his photo-op with Obama days before the election. Who gives a rats ass about a blue state like New Jersey? Or this pathetic phony Republican? The man is no advantage to the national party, unless the party plans on moving farther to the left. No thanks!

KingGold. The R party has a strong bench and doesn’t need to pander to traitors like Christie. As a moderate, I’m disgusted by his behavior during the election. I’m fine with moderates, not self serving jerks. In fact, I think that we should make a pact to not vote for Christie even if he gets through the primaries. I know I will not be voting for him for President even in the general. Who is with me on this!!

Actually, the Conservative movement is growing. But the number of Conservatives who still are Institutional Republicans is small and getting smaller. Between Conservatives leaving because the Republicans are becoming ersatz Democrats, and the war waged by the Institutional “leadership” on anyone in the party more Conservative than Leon Trotsky; they will soon achieve their dream of an absolutely content-free Republican party.

Sadly for their fantasies, by that time Christie will be a Democrat, and they will probably end up nominating Hagel … if there are elections in 2016.

I’ve been thinking about history a lot, lately. Do you know what’s been coming up? The means that always develops to remove entrenched power. Time and again – it’s not Democracy that does it. I’ve been reading a lot about the French Revolution. They were WRONG about SO MANY things – but they were onto some interesting science facts.

Take decapitation by Guillotine, for example.

It was discovered that human beings could actually still see and hear AFTER a Guillotine decapitated them. This lead to them holding up the executed person’s head and show their decapitated body to them.

Kind of grisly – but really, really interesting…….from a Science perspective.

I have no idea why this comes to mind right now…..but it’s what I’ve been thinking about lately for soem reason.

16,000 customers without power in OK. National Guard out in Texas to help motorists.

So many States are affected.

Ummm.. Christie is not a conservative. I have problems with them excluding GOProud, but not this guy. He is a blowhard jerk and didn’t get an invitation precisely because he would have used that to condemn conservatives.

And AP, yes being centrist R works in NJ but to win a R primary you need to win in places like SC and IA. Don’t think that Rubio doesn’t already have the commercials created to destroy Krispy Kreme ala Orange Charlie. Krispy’s given so much good material over the last few years.

Ummm….neither is Rubio, what with his Amnesty aspirations and maverick-like stink.

Who’s Buttgill loving on this cycle?
