Video: Standing ovation for Christie at CPAC

posted at 2:41 pm on March 6, 2014 by Allahpundit

Actually, although I have video of his speech, I don’t have video of the reception he got. You’ll have to trust David Freddoso and Eliana Johnson on that:

The crowd gathered at the Conservative Political Action Conference rose to its feet as Chris Christie exited stage left…

Christie’s remarks were highly anticipated, not only because of the lingering scandal but also because CPAC brass dinged him last year by leaving him off of the guest list. Today, the governor was greeted with murmurs and some quiet cheers; he drew more excitement from the audience as he proceeded…

Christie returned to a familiar theme, contrasting the labor of the GOP’s governors with the fecklessness of politicians in Washington. “The most dangerous ten feet in Washington, D.C., is between anybody who wants to talk about something and a camera,” he said.

Criticizing other pols for playing to the media is an … interesting line of attack from a guy who got famous for yelling at people in YouTube clips, but oh well. He does sound like a candidate: “We don’t get to govern if we don’t win,” a key line from today’s speech, is one I’ve heard him use before as an allusion to his alleged electability advantage over the rest of the field. Emphasis on “alleged”:

As conservatives gather in the Washington area on Thursday for three days of speeches from prospective 2016 presidential candidates and discussions about the future of the GOP, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll found that three in 10 of all Republicans say they would not vote for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie if he ran for the White House…

Just 9 percent of Republicans say they definitely would vote for Christie, while 50 percent say they would consider doing so. Eleven percent say they have no opinion.

The 30 percent of Republicans who say they definitely would not vote for Christie is the highest percentage for any Republican tested.

Here’s what the overall numbers look for Christie, the consummately electable centrist with crossover appeal…

cchw

…and here’s what they look like for Rand Paul, the supposedly unelectable far-right libertarian:

rpw

If that doesn’t grab you, here’s what Christie’s numbers look like in Fox News’s new poll. Note the partisan split, especially:

cchf

Of the seven candidates mentioned in Fox’s poll — Hillary, Biden, Paul, Cruz, Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Christie — only Christie had negative numbers in all three partisan groups, including his own. Among tea partiers, he’s at 35/47, behind even Bush (42/46), which means he’s actually doing slightly better with TPers than with the rest of the GOP. The only good news for him in all of this is that, per the WaPo data noted above, there’s an even greater number of Americans (48 percent) who say they definitely wouldn’t vote for his centrist rival Bush than say the same for Christie. Go figure that, in the electability sweepstakes, the guy named “Bush” has the biggest hill to climb.

Here’s two minutes from today’s speech, which included a reminder that the blue state of New Jersey has twice elected a pro-life governor. Translation: Reports of my squishiness are greatly exaggerated.

I see there are still some gullible people who thinks that because Rubio “gives good speeches” he’s worth listening to. He’s no conservative and I wouldn’t believe a word the he says. You could change “gives good speeches” to “is a very, very practiced and accomplished liar”. From a Floridian who knows.

Cristy is … well and adequate speaker and maybe a good debater.
But in the back of my mind he’s still a Gun Grabbing Scheistkoff.

If he’d walked on stage with that frontstuffer that McConnell waved around (see picture) and layed it across the podium and spoke of liberty and how the government must be redirected from its present course, I might give him a longer look. But Jersey is not the birth place nor training ground for presidential material. Not in these times at least.

Would like to see a blogger at this site who will live up to Malkin’s legacy and show the same kind of passion and dedication.

The American Conservative Union is conservative in name only. It’s current Chairman Al Cardenas is a long-time lobbyist who is very strongly pro-amnesty. It’s past chairman, David Keene, is a very corrupt individual (remember the influence selling scandal involving Fed Ex and Keene’s ex-wife [a paid ACU staffer] was accused of embezzling ACU funds?)

Bmore on March 6, 2014 at 3:56 PM

FWIW, here is what PolitiFact sez:

Cruz — full name: Rafael Edward Cruz –was born in Canada in 1970 because his father was working for the oil industry there. The senator’s recently released birth certificate shows his mother was born in Delaware and his father was born in Cuba. The Cruz family left Canada a few years later. Cruz grew up in Texas and graduated from high school there, later attending Princeton University and Harvard Law School.

By virtue of his American-born mother, Cruz, 42, considers himself a natural born citizen and eligible to run for president.

Sounds like a dubious case to make for those sticklers at H/A who went so far as to question McCain’s status, for example.

Scott Walker is for illegal alien amnesty

VIDEO – Scott Walker says “Sure!” to illegal alien amnesty. Skip to last seconds of video:
http://youtu.be/PJ6cXpFrk0c

Yes, just like Obama and McCain and Rubio, Walker claims he is against “amnesty” while advocating for special pathway to legalization.

VIDEO: Also, look at the end of the video posted here (Walker’s own words):
http://www.politico.com/story/2013/02/scott-walker-supports-path-to-citizenship-87960.html

The controversy is about mass illegal alien amnesty, which Walker supports. Walker’s support for an increase in H-1B visas, something that is widely supported, is not the issue here. Issues of specialized, legal foreign workers and border security should not be linked to illegal alien amnesty. I wish people would stop allowing the amnesty issue to be obscured and hidden through the use of positive-sounding, vague terms like “immigration reform.”

NO SPECIAL PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP OR ANY LEGALIZATION FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS, PERIOD. ENFORCE THE LAW.

I will never support a pro-amnesty politician like Walker or Christie. The issue is way too important.

“We don’t get to govern if we don’t win”.

So, what exactly is Christie saying here? Is he suggesting that we should ignore the Establishment GOP’s big pander on amnesty? Because, I kind of think he is. When he signed off on allowing so-called “Dreamers” in-state tuition, what was different between him and any Democrat he ever ran against?

I’m all for Republicans getting in there and putting their plan forward… but just what IS the plan? If it’s amnesty, there’s no point in electing them, because it’s an end to any hope of bringing back limited government, responsible spending, and any semblance of an organic marketplace.

There is nothing ambiguous about his statement.

Walker’s Wisconsin Dream Act defunding for show is well and good, but it doesn’t negate Walker’s stand on the big amnesty question that matters the most; i.e., Walker’s support for mass illegal alien amnesty.

Are we supposed to ignore the fact that, repeatedly and in the last year, Walker has expressed support for a special pathway to legalization for illegal aliens? I’m not sure why you seem so intent on making excuses for him on this issue.

Will you be satisfied if Walker, as McCain did, laughably promises to “build the danged fence”?

Walker had already said he strongly supports über amnesty promoter Paul Ryan, as well as Jeb, and that both would be potential candidates he could see himself supporting for the nomination.

Cruz is the only one who is against amnesty, but he is currently unelectable. Easiest thing to do, is get Christie elected, then use the conservatives in the House and Senate to stop amnesty from passing.

Stupid RINO memes Part 126,456,333

Actually, I don’t see any videos of standing ovations for Christie.

So, follow another loser the third time is not a charm just a fat ass loud mouth over rated ego with zits still at his age.

No offense, but some you sure have a simplistic take on politics.

cimbri on March 6, 2014 at 5:31 PM

OK, Thie liberal Justice Dept. lawyer for the Bush family who is big buddies with the U.S. atty John Ratcliff who put Ramos and Copean in jail for doing their jobs, this amnesty shill, this pork for roads and bridges New Jersey thug, this member of the CO2 Climate Change fraud of Michael Mann’s cult of nuts of the Earth First, Greenpeace loons, this guy who can not control his personal impulse to eat to much, this guy who thinks leadership is yelling at middle aged women teachers, and wrap it up with the fact he is pure RINO bait.

That shallow enough for you???

APACHEWHOKNOWS on March 6, 2014 at 5:38 PM

Too, any one who belives the Climate Change Hocky Stick fraud is way past just simplistic so take your complaint to your Fat Fraud Christie who gets lots of Democrat party votes to get elected.

I guess the bigger question to ask is, why should they expect us to support their Neostatists when they turned their back on Cucinelli? Kind of puts it all in perspective doesn’t it?

Brock Robamney on March 6, 2014 at 5:54 PM

Is Palin giving the keynote again? They have her scheduled at 6pm on Saturday.

fight like a girl on March 6, 2014 at 3:47 PM

She is

jake-the-goose on March 6, 2014 at 3:49 PM

Palin: Did you hear about the people losing health insurance because of Obamacare? I told you so, in 2009.

Did you hear that we should be exporting natural gas?
I told you so, in 2010.

Did you hear that Russia invaded Ukraine?
I told you so, in 2008.

Maybe we should listen to her now!

Steve Z on March 6, 2014 at 6:16 PM

Juan Williams likes Chris Christie. Kiss of death.

Naturally Curly on March 6, 2014 at 6:43 PM

Christie+”Bridgegate”= Hilary wins Presidency.
If Christie wants the GOP to win elections then he ought to step aside and not run for President (for the good of the party!)

Time for today’s 2 minutes of hate, I see. Well, 2 minutes is a figure of speech.

MJBrutus on March 6, 2014 at 3:47 PM

How long did it take to write this. Bout two minutes?

The best part of the Romney administration is that he won’t have to bow and scrape to the demands of the kooks who have glommed on to the GOP. Every so often in politics coalitions change and adjust. This is one of those inflection points where the GOP will finally be able to rid itself of the devils known as the religious right. Reagan was the first to truly dine with them, and he was wise enough to use a long spoon. The lesser men who weren’t have allowed the party to be painted with their brush.

Not sure about you hawk, but these threads are hard to get though as of late. Not sure, but it may be partially the jumping java issue the site is experiencing. At any rate staying current at least for me is proving difficult. ; )

What did pagliacci in with the right wasn’t the traffic or Sandy, it was how he perpetually went to the MSM to make his case, and when they rebuffed him, he was hurt. Boo-Hoo.

Brock Robamney on March 6, 2014 at 8:01 PM

If Cruz gets the nomination, I’m sure you’ll happily vote for him in the general. Liberal Republicans are always telling conservatives to get onboard with the team when their preferred candidate loses in the primary, so I’m sure you’ll take the same advice.
bluegill on March 6, 2014 at 3:56 PM

It doesn’t work like that. They will go all Anti Cucinelli mode, take their ball and go home

Steve Z on March 6, 2014 at 6:16 PM

Indeed.
The biggest problem in 2008 was they had the ticket backwards — well, and it had McCain on it. Okay, two problems.
Palin / Cruz or Cruz / Palin?
