    Thanks for your concern about the Virginia Governor. He spoke in 2012 there...he isnt on the main speaker lists...but you can still see him, get your tickets..

    "On Friday, March 15, 2013, at 8:00 a.m. Bob McDonnell will go to CPAC and address the Faith & Freedom Coalition Prayer Breakfast..."

    Airborne, have you always been a fan of Chris Christie, even when he was battling the crooked public employee unions? Who knew!

    I agree it is idiotic not to invite Chris Christie ...I doubt it is an intentional snub for ideological reasons, but if it gives you an excuse to rant about "wingnuts" feel free..

    Some think Christie indicated he didnt want an invite..he is running for Governor in blue state NJ this year, after all, he needs to focus on state politics.

    The bad news is: Republicans have a likeable and electable 2016 candidate in Christie.

    The good news is: the GOP is too dumb to nominate or even include him in anything.

    Yah, the GOP should take advice from liberals.  Good plan.

    Maybe they should.  Consensus is that whatever they're getting now isn't working that well....

    They have been taking advice from liberals (via Republican "consultants.") That's why things haven't been working out so well.

    Ya, the guy with the highest voter approval rating in the country is doing something wrong.

    Now that's funny.

    Playing nice with Chris Christie, are we?

    When the GOP nomination fight in 2011 was gearing up,  liberals and the media (but I repeat myself) were bashing Newt Gingrich, but playing nice with Mitt Romney, saying how a blue state GOP Governor was a perfect fit, how moderate he was...

    When Romney became the nominee, they turned their guns on him quickly as a right wing nut , wealthy tycoon, dog on the roof carrier, etc..

    Chris Christie is hopefully smart enough to realize the libs only build you up, to knock you down.  
    Expect more coverage like Barbara Walters first question in her interview:"Many say you are too fat to be President..."

    Gov Christie.

    Yep, that's right, one of the most nationally recognized and popular wingnuts in office today. is not even invited to the premier wingnut convention.

    My how a nat'l disaster can change the whacko wingnuts' perceptions of their presumptive leaders. Less than a year ago, the media was filled with glowing praise for the NJ governor. They touted his gregariousness, his leadership and his ability to reach across the aisle when necessary.

    Apparently it was that last quality, his affinity for bipartisan solutions, which has doomed him in the wingnut party. The acrimony of the wingnut party towards the Gov. after his photo-op with PotUS is well documented. Some idiots have even tried to blame Christie for the pathetic failure of the Mittens campaign.

    So, just when the country needs more bipartisanship the wingnuts are casting out anyone who has a whiff of working with the opposing party. They are culling the herd of anyone even perceived to be a RINO.

    Just when the party needs to increase it's appeal to voters, the wingnuts are ostracizing it's most broadly appealing candidate.

    So much for that big tent baloney. Today's wingnut party could fit in a pup-tent.

    No word yet if the governor of Virginia, who just announced a revenue increase, has an invite. Probably just got hung up in the mail......

     

     

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who has fallen out of favor with some conservatives in recent months, is not being invited to the Conservative Political Action Conference, according to someone close to CPAC who was not authorized to speak publicly.

    The big conservative confab in the Washington area is a routine stopover for potential future potential GOP presidential candidates and has already nabbed most top 2016 contenders.

     

    Officially, CPAC says its schedule is still a work in progress. Christie’s potential snub has been the subject of some reports in recent days.

    Christie’s apparent snub comes as most other big-name potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates have been invited and accepted the invitations, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and former senator Rick Santorum (R-Pa.).

    While broadly popular in his home state, Christie has irritated some conservatives in recent weeks and months, first by praising President Obama’s Hurricane Sandy efforts in the final week of the 2012 campaign (some Republicans even blame this for the GOP’s loss) and then by taking on his party’s failure to pass a Sandy bill. He also offered some tough criticism of the National Rifle Association after the group ran an ad using President Obama’s daughters to make a point.

    It wouldn’t be the first CPAC has left out someone who has departed from its principles. The gay Republican group GOProud has also been excluded.

    CPAC is just a sub element special interest group of the GOP, kind of like Move.on and the DNC relationship.

    The problem with CPAC is that they are a activivist group that holds too much power in the primary process.  This is why the GOP gets off the message of smaller government and free enterprise model, and gets caught up in conservative social positions and loses the middle.
