However you cannot say Christie is a principled conservative. Don't take my word for it, here is what a Conservative from NJ has to say about it. He has 8 part series that goes into detail refuting the myth that Christie is a Conservative:

    His duty also includes not being allowed to be used as a political pawn by the opposition party during an election year. Especially when the election is critically a few short days away. Either he willingly allowed it to happen or he doesn't have the political acumen to realize and understand he was being used a pawn and to not take part in that. Either way he shouldn't have been at CPAC.
    I guess that's why he got the Repub nomination for Governor over the opposition of the NJ Repub establishment.

    That's a lot of nonsense to cram into one post. Good luck.

    2) What race brouhaha? You mean the ThinkProgress and TPM stories trying to find one nut out of how many people that are there to paint the entire convention as racist? We're supposed to accept that as credible reporting? Or do you mean the far left racists who continue to attack Dr. Ben Carson and call him the N Word for daring to question Obama? Or the rabid mob of far left Collectivists who demonize every black conservative as an Uncle Tom, Token, or Oreo? That race brouhaha?

    Tolerance brigade calls Ben Carson ‘token,’ ‘Uncle Tom’ and ‘Oreo’ after CPAC speech | Twitchy

    Examples of tweets





    They don't sound very tolerant of blacks that have a different political opinion than they do. To the left, it's perfectly acceptable to call a black man the N Word if he doesn't have left wing political views. Blacks become fair game for left wing lynching if they have thoughts outside the liberal plantation, yet you want to sit here and try and paint an entire convention as racist because of one guy who was even attacked by the audience? After the exchange he spoke with with K Carl (who wrote this book - Frederick Douglass Republicans: The Movement to Re-Ignite America's Passion for Liberty: K. Carl Smith, Dr. Karnie C. Smith Sr.: 9781456758165: Amazon.com: Books) and then bought his book. You don't care about any of that though. All you care about is smearing, slandering, and mocking people. Facts be damned.

    Where are the Blacks Obama is appointing into high office? There aren't any

    NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous: Pick black female justice - Kevin Cirilli - POLITICO.com

    That race brouhaha?

    3) A Republican changed his mind about SSM? Big deal. What does that have to do with CPAC? It's not like the left is suddenly going to embrace the guy for supporting SSM. On the contrary he's being demonized and attacked for it by the left.

    4) Who cares about Trump. Democrats booed God and Israel at their convention and you want to point at CPAC and talk about a spectacle? It doesn't even pass the laugh test? Or how about this for a spectacle. The President of the United States says that a 2% cut in the rate of growth in Federal Spending will mean total financial meltdown for the country. To prove this point he unleashes criminal illegal aliens onto lawful society and closes WH Tours, turning away little kids. Are you talking about that spectacle?
    You do know that appearing with some one does not make them the same ideology as that person, right? If you look at his stance on issues and beliefs, he is a clear conservative. The rest of your post is just lies and diversions.

    Christie didn't "deserve" to go, but they all did? That's an entitlement mentality if ever there was one. Not to mention elitist.

    He isn't a conservative just because you emotionally make the claim

    It's pointless trying to even have a reasonable discussion with a far left zealot such as you on this subject regardless

    I love how "very liberal" people try and act like the authority on who is Conservative and who isn't. It's laughable.

    You mean his "conservative" position that the federal government must immediately pay for everyone who suffered financial lose from a natural disaster who did not have the prior financial responsibility to buy insurance coverage?

    Maybe the federal goverment should buy everyone a new car who is in an accident and didn't have car insurance too under Christie's "conservative" principles.

    Or do you mean his conservative principle that Obama "is doing a great job" and that 100% of Republicans in Congress are not?
