Christie will not be invited to CPAC

10 posts in this topic

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ®, 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.

People like Governor Christie were their only hope.

Claiming to be spiritually minded, theirs is a trail of poison bread crumbs.

The American political system is in serious need of overhaul, in so many ways I can hardly begin to fathom.

One thing is the presence of "closed primaries." These things allow the extremists of a party to have undue influence over the party's candidates, and, it follows, to have undue influence over official behavior because of the constant threat of a primary challenge.

Candidates for an office should be lined up regardless of party and for a first round of voting all those getting less than a small percent of the vote should be eliminated. Then the survivors go at it again a second time, with the elimination getting a little higher, and so on until someone gets about 52 percent of the vote (a bit about a majority so as to be sure it is a real majority). Of course occasionally you will have just two candidates left, when you will have to take the majority winner.

The two dominant political parties in America are entrenched, and they have organized support in unions and similar organizations, so getting such a reform is unlikely. This is a reason for the decline of nations -- insufficient institutional ability to effect change in the face of vested interests.

If Christie was a conservative, he'd have been invited.

Kind of too bad. Christie seems to be one of the more reasonable members of the GOP right now and could likely benefit them by playing a larger roll.

You mean reasonable like McCain who lost ? And Romney who lost ?

There's always hope there's someone in the GOP who is actually reasonable and won't go insane during a national election run.

In our current political landscape this man would never have a chance of being president.Though i do not always agree with the man,he tries to do what he thinks is right.There is no place in the present time for someone to pick and choose ideas from both sides to better anything.It has become a "My way or the highway" stance with both parties.
