Quotes of the day

posted at 10:41 pm on February 27, 2013 by Allahpundit

Gov. Chris Christie today brushed off a snub from an influential conservative group that did not invite him to speak at its conference next month, calling the controversy “small stuff.”

“I didn’t know that I hadn’t been invited to CPAC until like two days ago when I saw it in the news,” Christie said in response to a question at a town hall meeting in this heavily Republican Morris County town…

“Listen, I wish then all the best. They’re going to have their conference, they’re going to have a bunch of people speaking there. That’s their call… It’s not like I’m lacking for invitations to speak around the country.”…

“I can’t sweat the small stuff,” he said. “I’ve got a state to rebuild.”

***

While some Republicans are still angry at Chris Christie for praising Barack Obama before the election, Mitt Romney isn’t among them.

Romney, whose supporters and aides were furious that Christie complimented the president’s response to Hurricane Sandy, has given the maximum contribution possible, $3,800, to the New Jersey governor’s reelection bid, a source familiar with the donation said.

At the same time, Eric Cantor, the House majority leader who pushed to get the Sandy aid bill to the floor for a vote after it was tabled by House Speaker John Boehner, has added his name to a Christie fundraiser in Virginia Thursday night and hosted by Gov. Bob McDonnell, the source said…

“A guy like Christie can really go and sell the conservative message,” [Peter King] said, adding that too many presidential prospects are being pushed to “go and kiss the ring of CPAC” and take certain stands in that process.

***

“To my knowledge, CPAC has always invited Republicans regardless of ideology and they lose credibility by ignoring someone of Gov. Christie’s stature,” said Mike Dennehy, a New Hampshire-based GOP strategist.

Others supported it.

“The essential element that’s missing in the Acela corridor kerfuffle on Christie not being invited to CPAC is the ‘C’ in CPAC stands for ‘Conservative,’” said Florida-based operative Rick Wilson.

“You have a guy who stung the base very badly in the closing days of the 2012 election and who last week says he agrees with Cuomo 98 percent of the time. He’s done some fine work in New Jersey, but he’s also handled relationships with the base with what a lot of conservatives view as contempt. On guns, global warming and a host of other issues, he’s not exactly asking for an invitation to the dance.“

***

I have no beef with conservatives who say they couldn’t support Christie for president. I have no quarrel with those who mount strong, principled arguments against some of his actions; indeed, I share more than a few of their criticisms. But I am alarmed and slightly perplexed by the “he’s dead to us” posture many conservatives have adopted toward the truculent governor. A bit of perspective is in order. New Jersey isn’t purple. It isn’t even light blue. It is a deep blue state. Last year, it was one of only a small handful of states where Barack Obama actually expanded his victory margin over 2008. The voters of New Jersey chose to return perenially-embattled liberal Senator Bob Menendez to Capitol Hill…by a 20-point margin. And New Jerseyans haven’t elected a Republican US Senator since the Nixon era. This represents exceptionally hostile terrain for any Republican, let alone a quasi-conservative one (and no, Christie didn’t actually say he agrees with Andrew Cuomo on “98 percent” of issues). And yet

This country is in grave trouble, and the Left is ascendant. The center-right coalition simply does not have the luxury of engaging in internecine pissing matches, pardon my language. Enough with the internal expulsions, name-calling, bans and retaliatory boycotts. The American Idea is worth fighting for, but that imperative task is made nearly impossible when conservatives — broadly defined — insist on endlessly fighting each other.

***

National Republican committeeman for New Jersey Bill Palatucci, a Christie ally, declined to comment on the CPAC snub, but rejects the premise that Christie has been rebuffed by conservative elements of the party. He points to the governor’s high approval rating and record of cutting taxes and dramatically reducing the size of the state government.

“I’ve been all over the country with the governor and his reception with conservatives, with others, has been very, very positive,” Palatucci said. “It’s an ongoing process. When folks look at the larger picture and accomplishments, they’ll find an executive who’s got real accomplishments to point to.”…

“Fundamentally, what people are pointing to as the problem is what’s fundamentally wrong with the far right of the conservative movement anyway. They’ve sort of forgotten to realize that brand of politics is not working. It has no traction and no success,” said Lisa Camooso Miller, past Republican National Committee communications director and New Jersey Republican state committee political director. “I suspect the approval ratings for the people who disapprove of [Christie] are quite a bit lower than his. He’s governing. He’s doing the job he was asked to do.”

Christie has the sort of common touch that is the rarest (and most valuable) gift in a politician. Take the clip below — from a Montville, New Jersey town hall meeting — where Christie gives his answer to a little girl’s questions about the best part of being governor…

Now, imagine Mitt Romney having that same conversation. You can’t do it. Christie gives off the “normal guy” vibe better than anyone else — up to and including Marco Rubio — who is operating on a national stage for Republicans at the moment.

And, that matters when it comes to running for president. A lot.

Hello fellow Hot Airians!!

Got a great poem here, not mine.

It’s by a guy Named John who served in the Navy:

John

“The Messiah” Obama wants our guns,
Along with other liberal bums.
Our Constitution, says otherwise,
He is not American, he’s in disguise.

The 2nd Amendment is plain you see,
To protect us all from his tyranny.
He wishes a country full of sheep,
And I pray each night before I sleep.

I pray that America will always survive,
But I am seeing, a quick demise.
Our GOD given rights are under attack,
And once gone, we will never get back !

Millions have died to keep us free,
I will too, if need be.
Drones in the sky, over the land of the free,
Drones that will be spying on you and me.

Complete control, over us you see,
Hell or high water, it WILL NOT be!
I served this great country in Vietnam,
And I am not, a brave man.

MOLON LABE, is the battle cry,
From my dead hands, you will have to pry.
Guns have always kept America free,
There is only one way, to get them from me !

John D USN RVN 71, 72, 73, evac 75

Well, when you do not know what objective journalism looks like, and when you have never in your entire life time been exposed to real news reporting, it’s not particularly surprising that you think indoctrination propaganda is synonymous with New.

But, in truth, you are correct, this is not NEWS, this is a form of brainwashing, where you, the ignorant gullible rube are being instructed on exactly what you are required to think. In this particular case, what you are being indoctrinated to think, is that liberals are conservatives.

Chris Christie is a typical Liberal Progressive who ran as a republican, because like Herr Doktor Paul, it was the only way he could get elected. Now, because this very liberal “Republican” won an election, and 70 percent of all Republicans are Conservative, you are being required to think that all Republicans should automatically be expected to speak at CPAC.

This is how infiltration works. This is how indoctrination works, and it is how people are brainwashed.

While I — like many people here — feel some mixed emotions about Christie, he should have been invited. He is one of the most popular governors in the country; his work in New Jersey has reduced taxes and balanced their budget, and led Jersey through a horrific hurricane.

Of course, the president’s visit to Jersey during the campaign was political, and so was Christie’s vast array of ridiculous complements. But why can’t he speak? For that matter, why can’t GOProud sponsor an event? These hissy-fits are why we lost in ’12.

Smart @thenation interns & young folks have no idea who Woodward is but dc establishment freaked about his critique of WH & sequester.

Is that something she really wants to admit publicly?

Chris Christie couldn’t bring himself to say “Barack Obama” during the freakin’ KEYNOTE ADDRESS AT THE GOP CONVENTION.

SouthernGent on February 27, 2013 at 11:22 PM

Hear Jerry Doyle last night on the way home last night. He was ranting and raving about Christie being disinvited to speak at CPAC. He then became sarcastic about how it made sense that someone who balanced his state’s budget, shrunk its spending and size while standing up to the unions wouldn’t be considered conservative enough to speak at CPAC, and how being pro-life wouldn’t be conservative enough to CPAC. He then stated that the radical right like Limbaugh had denigrated Christie during the hurricane coverage and blamed Christie for Romney’s loss, calling Christie’s time with Obama, a “long slobbering love affair”. He then played the cheering Christie received prior to his RNC Convention speech as evidence of how well loved Christie was back then and now lamented how he is persona non grata. That was the substance of Doyle’s rant. He went on for the next several minutes that I continued to listen with variations on the above theme.

Like a democrat, Doyle kind of left out some key things:
Conservatives might not think somebody who supports gun control is conservative enough to speak at CPAC

Conservatives might not think someone who supported the Ground Zero Victory Mosque is conservative enough to speak at CPAC

Conservatives might not think someone who supports climate change legislation is conservative enough to speak at CPAC

Conservatives might not think someone who stated that he agrees with Cuomo 98% of the time is anywhere near conservative enough to speak at CPAC.

The guy gets three positions right, and Doyle thinks that makes him “conservative enough” to be considered a small government conservative in the Reagan mold.

There’s no getting around it – this will all come to violence

Where do you think it will start?

With the illegal aliens released today? Because of the sequester, you know…

And..he spoke for over twenty minutes, all about himself, including his childhood, before he ever mentioned Romney, and then it was only briefly before he went back to himself again.

Gee… who else does that? Oh, yeah…. Barack Obama.

thatsafactjack on February 27, 2013 at 11:26 PM

While some Republicans are still angry at Chris Christie for praising Barack Obama before the election, Mitt Romney isn’t among them.

Which is a good part of why Romney lost – because he’s a friggin idiot, along with the fact that he’s not conservative in any way, whatsoever.

Mitt, go away. You lied down for the 2012 campaign (not for the primary, which you attacked conservatives like crazy) so why don’t you just continue your passive, nonexistent stance and stop bothering us.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on February 27, 2013 at 11:26 PM

To bad we have to put him on such a big pedestal.
Kind of wish he’d just go away.

anotherJoe on February 27, 2013 at 11:27 PM

While I — like many people here — feel some mixed emotions about Christie, he should have been invited. He is one of the most popular governors in the country; his work in New Jersey has reduced taxes and balanced their budget, and led Jersey through a horrific hurricane.

Of course, the president’s visit to Jersey during the campaign was political, and so was Christie’s vast array of ridiculous complements. But why can’t he speak? For that matter, why can’t GOProud sponsor an event? These hissy-fits are why we lost in ’12.

No, I don’t support all of Gov. Chrisite’s positions; do you support all of former VP Cheney’s? He supports marriage equality, ya know.

youknowit on February 27, 2013 at 11:20 PM

Go to hell you fool. Popular does not mean CONSERVATIVE… CPAC, Conservative Political Action Conference, is a conference for CONSERVATIVES not fat a$$ “Popular” Liberal Governors.
