If Christie were so powerful in his popularity, he could have carried New Jersey for Romney. Obama took the state 3-2. Christie Creme is a perishable product outside Obamaland. I am not a fan of CPAC either. I attended their annual meetings in the period 1975-1985, and unless they have changed a lot, they are still an insular group of professional political "consultants" who distrust libertarians, social conservatives and paleo-conservatives, i.e., any group of grass-roots activists who are not safely (and profitably) in their pockets.

Christie effectively endorsed Obama.

He reminds me of Mayor Coleman Young of Detroit in 1980, who was so dependent on federal grant money for his city and so sure Carter would win re-election he called Ronald Reagan "Pruneface".

Needless to say he and his city were left out in the cold when Reagan landslided Carter.

Christie kissed up to Obama because he wanted to be on that gravy train.

Well, the gravy is getting pretty thin.......
Poor black people thought that Coleman Young was their only chance. problem was that Young had a score to settle (some of it justified) and coul not get past it to save the city.

What can you do with a man like Chris Christie?

The answer, according to many with the conservative movement: Throw him overboard. And while we're at it, let's toss the gays over the side too.

The popular governor of New Jersey has certainly angered many conservatives, including this humble scribe. During the crucial final days of the presidential election, Christie didn't merely embrace President Obama, he all but endorsed him.

Then, during the congressional fight over the disaster-relief bill for victims of superstorm Sandy -- a bill with more pork in it than a Jimmy Dean factory -- Christie denounced Republicans...
