    Our government is more efficient than yours and we have had three parties one Progressive Conservative, one Liberal, and one centre-left/socialist. We actually get stuff done it seems while the U.S. is always in a deadlock. I guess it also helps that when we reach a disagreement over a budget we go to elections.

    Re: Chris Christie ‘Not Being Invited’ to CPAC

    Just goes to show how hard headed some Republicans and Conservatives can be.

    Always complaining that politicians put politics ahead of the country.

    But when his state was in trouble, he put his big boy pants on, rose above politics and worked with the president and other leaders to help his state.

    Meaning he'd probably do the same thing for the country.

    Well, this is an entirely different political landscape...But I guess, considering that Progressive Conservatives were more of Gladstonian liberals - the "Blue Tories" - yeah, directionally, it would be a good shift.

    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,
    Yeah, they have been saying we will Elect a Fat Man long before we Elect one with a Beard or Mustache.....guess the parties want clean shaven men. Oh and Women too. No hair-lip pieces.

    Check yourself, Cyrylek. Centrists? Cough <blowjob>, cough.

    Romney hardly belongs anywhere at all. Perry's brand of conservatism is simply too outdated to matter (and not especially "rightist" either, if you ignore brash pronouncements). Palin has made too many confused and contradictory statements to be defined as anything but an entertainer.
    I suspect they invited Romney out of obligation. Perry and Palin. If one had any doubts about where CPAC's head is I can answer in five words: Ryan, Perry, Palin, Paul and Santorum. The direction CPAC has decided to take is - Circle.

    So, there is Santorum. The sole representative of the "social conservatives" (and nowhere close to the "right" if "free-marketism" is required to be there, by your definitions.
    I need you to understand something, I'm not that damn stupid. We might debate on a few others, but I just listed five people (5 out of 9) who are social conservatives. Santorum is one of the five. If you believe that those five are the future of conservatism, conservatism has no future.

    Putting his big boy pants on didn't mean he had to don knee pads as well, that was just something HE decided to do himself.

    Of course, all Republicans hate him. That's why he has a 94% approval rating from Republicans in his own state, and 56% amongst Democrats.
    Plus he is polling high in 7 other states. Still do you think he is big in the Midwest and out West?

    Unfortunately, polling high almost two years before a mid-term and almost four years until a presidential election, counts for absolutely nothing.

    "Christie and Obama, sitting in a tree, K...I...S...S...I...N...G!

    For all of our newly minted loyal Americans, that's a historical American child's schoolyard rhyme.
