New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who angered some fellow Republicans with his public praise of President Obama’s handling of Superstorm Sandy just days before the November election, appears to have been snubbed by this year’s Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) gathering.

Despite being chosen to deliver the keynote speech at last year’s Republican National Convention, CPAC officials chose not to invite the popular governor to this year’s three day event, which starts on March 14 near Washington, D.C., according to NBC News.

Meanwhile, the American Conservative Union, which sponsors the event, announced on Monday that Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be among the featured speakers at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.

“Governor Rick Perry has been successful in leading Texas with strong fiscally conservative policies,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We look forward to welcoming Governor Perry back to the CPAC stage in March.”

I wouldn't say that he was snubbed so much as they've realized that he is not conservative.

I won't go so far as to equate him to Specter, but he is a typical northeastern politician and brings that perspective to the issues. I was caught-up in the Christie mystique when he first took office and took on the NJ teacher's union and tried to get the budget under control, but over time, and especially post-Sandy, the bloom is off the rose.

He denies saying he agrees with Cuomo on 98% of the issues, clarifying he referred to governing style, not policy. Still, any comparison to the Albany tyrant is concerning. I don't much care for his man-crush on that crappy, commie NJ musician either.

The ONLY thing I liked about Christie was watching him yell at the unions....

Quote:Report: And the Reason Chris Christie Wasn’t Invited to CPAC is…

Well, because he’s too squishy on Second Amendment rights, or something. National Review Online’s Eliana Johnson has the exclusive report:

Quote:New Jersey governor Chris Christie was not invited to address the Conservative Political Action Conference because of his position on gun control, according to a source familiar with CPAC’s internal deliberations who requested anonymity to speak freely.

Christie has a “limited future” in the national Republican party given his position on gun control, the source tells National Review Online. As a result, the CPAC insider says, the focus of this year’s conference, “the future of conservatism,” made Christie a bad fit.

Christie, the source adds, is simply not a conservative in the eyes of organizers.

The New Jersey governor, who has expressed concern about “an abundance of guns out there,” has said he backs the gun-control legislation currently on the books in his state, some of the nation’s most restrictive. Christie has also not been afraid to speak out against the National Rifle Association, calling an ad the group ran in the wake of the Newtown shooting “reprehensible” and “awful.”

Christie is as much of a republican as Bloomberg was from 2001 to 2007.

Apparently they invited him, but when they sent him the form for the banquet choice, he checked "salmon" AND "chicken" AND "beef" and they figured that after the beating they took in 2012, they didn't have the finances to feed him. Big Grin
