Chris Christie to Speak at CPAC Amid Scandal
breitbart.com ^ | 2/3/14 | Matthew Boyle

New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie will speak at 2014’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the American Conservative Union (ACU) announced late Sunday. The ACU’s decision to invite Christie comes after he was denied a speaking slot in 2013 and amid a scandal over politically motivated highway lane closures that may jeopardize the rough-and-tumble Governor’s political future.

“We are very excited to announce that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will speak at CPAC 2014,” ACU chairman Al Cardenas said in a statement. “At this year’s CPAC — and through our theme ‘ACU’s Golden Anniversary: Getting It Right for 50 Years’ — we will celebrate how conservatism has shaped our past and look to the future with excitement.”

he shoulld have done something less evil like sell guns to mexican drug lords.

the media would not care about something like that

Remember when Christie cause our amabassador to die? no one does because the media does not care about that either

Or when Christie order the IRS to go after liberal groups?

Oh wait.. that was OBama

That was when I lost respect for Christie. He’s a turd. A fat, bully who chose to go Republican only because it was a clearer path.

The man is rich, and his life will be easy, so the best I can do is wish for him to go away. I assure anyone who cares, (and even those who don’t), I’ll never vote for this man in any capacity.

Christie has never been a Conservative. Besides he’s a jerk from Jersey.

Question is, will real Conservatives stay home from CPAC?

That’s like getting Billy Grahm to speak at a satanist convention.

It doesn’t matter what Obama did. Christie is still a despotic thug. He is still an enemy of conservatism and we need to stay out of it. For once the left is doing us a favor.

If Chris Christie speaks at 2014’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and no one is around, will it make a sound?

It says as much about CPAC as it does Christie.

I can hardly wait for Crispy to dispense his conservative wisdom on us all. I only hope its better than the pathetic Keynote speech he gave at the Republican National Convention.

Christie will be accompanied by his Imam, and a bridge repair man, to ensure applause.

Convention attendees quickly realized that Christie’s girth outstrips his speaking talent. What a bore.
