    Unquestionably Christie should seek the 2016 Democratic nomination for President given his extreme popularity among Democrats.

    Your right the GOP doesn't like Christie and I have no idea why. Being from NJ I guess you could say I'm a bit biased, but we need relatable people running and ideas that appeal to the majority of the country not the minority. Let's just say since Rand Paul is one of the so-called front runners that the party is backing, I really have no idea where they want to take it...

    other than Gary Johnson, christie is the only republican prospect who has even a remote chance of winning national election

    Re: Chris Christie ‘Not Being Invited’ to CPAC

    CPAC featured speakers will include:

    Romney
    Rubio
    Jindal
    Jeb Bush
    Rand Paul
    Ryan
    Palin (seriously, she's going to be a speaker at CPAC)
    Perry
    Santorum

    As we can see, and not surprisingly, CPAC plans to play to the right of right and then pander to the extreme right from there. It's what lost the GOP their last election. It's same old, same old with the same message. It's going to have the same appeal as it has in the past, even less so, as more people, dazed and disillusioned, leave GOP as I did, as many of us did.

    CPAC meanders like an old drunk to the same bar, to drink with the same people and suffer the same ills as in the past, while it blames its failures on everybody else.

    Christie, at this point, doesn't fit in the list of losers above. If Christie really has big balls, he'll avoid the getting the stench of CPAC all over himself.

    If the GOP is going to live, it's going to have to change. In fact, if the GOP is going to live, it's going to have to get the hell away from a lot of the speakers in the CPAC list above. Does Christie want to be mobbed up with that group? We will see.

    It would be hard for him to get the nomination for either party unless he very soon made a Dem switch or seriously started kissing butt to Republican money men and renouncing all his former Obama praise.

    It would be nice if he could stand a chance as an independent presidential candidate, but I don't see anyone without party backing being able to get enough of the popular vote, let alone the electoral college.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Speculation is that this is about Christie's handling of Hurricane Sandy.
    And what do YOU think?

    Re: Chris Christie ‘Not Being Invited’ to CPAC

    This is the kind of thing that upsets me about Republicans. If the GOP primary were held today I'd vote for Christie is part BECAUSE is this modern McCarthyism stupidity. Actually Christie was already leading in my mental short list but if he doesn't win the nomination its junk like this that will make me want to cross party lines and vote for the democrat.

    He wouldnt be the first Republican to show his true colors and jump ship to Democrats. What exactly are his conservative credentials? What has he done to demonstrate that he supports the GOP platform? Conservatives are simply tired of politicians talking about small govt and lower taxes, then crying to govt when the first hardship or special interest comes along.

    Re: Chris Christie ‘Not Being Invited’ to CPAC

    Criste IMO- has two personal problems, with getting elected in 2016, his weight, which Only he can do something about, We like to think of our Potus in Prime Health and tho he may be now_ How about 4 years from now, at his current weight ...
    his Outspoken praise for Obama in A crisis for NJ of hurricaine Sandy, I understand, WHY, he did it.. He Needed Help then and Money then.. for that I admire Him,.............. However he didn't have to personalize it with a Hug on national TV with the election a few weeks away............ I like Criste, I think eventually he will make a heck of a Potus, But not in 2016,
