“CPAC is to conservative politics what all-star games are to professional athletes,” wrote American Conservative Union head Al Cardenas in an email to POLITICO. “You get invited to speak amongst literally thousands of potential candidates."
He was a CPAC all-star last year, but despite a 74% approval rating in his state, Christie doesn't qualify as an all-star this year.
Which conservatives had an all-star year? Sarah Palin, Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.
Not sure what your point here is???
Christie is definitely not a true-blood conservative.
CPAC is only stating the obvious.
Now, does he have a future in national electoral politics?
And a shit-ton of CPAC members will vote for him should the right opponent emerge...
I'm just getting a kick out of the conservative movement's embrace of losers: Romney lost the presidency, Perry lost the nomination, and Palin lost her Fox News job. And those are the "all-stars".
It's clear that today's conservative leaders have no interest in governing; they're only around to get paid for saying angry bullshit. That's obviously what CPAC is all about.
I'm not a Christie fan, but he seems to be a conservative who wants to do what's best for his constituents. The CPAC "all-stars" want to do what's best for their own bank accounts. They're taking their gullible followers for a ride.
kaiser is the prototypical Tea Part connie. He claims to see no problem in the snubbing of the GOP's most popular governor. Roll ahead 4 years with the demographics clearly not in the GOP favor and the same posters who will be whining because they got screwed out of another election.
bingo. The horror of a governor putting aside partisanship and instead working across the aisle, especially with the scary President Blackenstein, and focusing on what is best with the people of his state who elected him. No wonder the right wing hacks hate him now.
