Skip to comments.Christie has repair work to do with conservatives

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie declined an invitation to attend a major gathering of social conservatives this week in Washington, opting instead to make a high-profile appearance at a forum organized by former President Bill Clinton in Chicago.
Christie's decision was hardly a bombshell: Up for re-election in November in a Democratic-leaning state, the governor can hardly afford to be seen courting Christian conservatives and sharing a stage with divisive figures like Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain.
But his absence was a sore point for many conservative activists who traveled to the Faith and Freedom Coalition's "Road to Majority" conference to see a bumper crop of GOP stars, including would-be presidential candidates like Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.
But there is harder evidence that Christie has problems with Republicans outside of New Jersey. A Gallup poll released earlier this month pegged Christie's approval rating among national Republicans at just 58 percent, and almost a quarter of Republicans view him unfavorably.

Is he going to be set up to be the Republican nominee, to make sure Hillary wins in 2016?
Repair work? The car is totaled!
Once a trigger is pulled you cannot recall or make amends for the bullet.
A good many conservatives are just as aware as your average democrat.
And are there any “divisive” liberals out there?
True. I’ve found that fiscal conservatives are seldom able to resist socialist impulses with no socially conservative anchor.
More like Hillary (D) vs Christie (pretend R) in 2016 — which of course will ensure President Hillary for the next 8 years.
After 8 years of Obama and 8 years of Hillary there isn’t going to be a USA left, as we know it...
To be “liked” by you is a true honor, sir :)
Yeah. Like St. Jude is his only hope.
Christie revealed the dick he is the first time he publicly ridiculed Palin.
You’re not calling him a boat anchor are you? Actually he’s like a boat with no compass. He’s just a guy who is tight with money and has no real moral principles.
no way -— no how
No, he’s a full on liberal. I’m simply stating that there is no such thing as a fiscal conservative. Its the whole package or not at all.
exactly... i liked him as much as i could like a liberal Republican.. i liked what he said when he campaigned for Romney in Virginia... but since
Sandy and the months that followed, i am done with him... he can do nothing to bring me to support him... he is a pig, imo...
I sincerely doubt that. In fact, I bet his absence was a relief.
I agree with you. I think there are a number of freepers here who might disagree. But I agree with you completely. The guy who says he’s fiscally conservative but not concerned with the moral issues that plague our country.... is just a guy who is tight with his money. In my opinion.
