I have to concur with Duncan Donettae.

As usual, CPAC would prefer to remain ideologically pure than get elected. They'll speechify, and complain in thinly-veiled, status-related terms about the Incumbent, and nod and tell each other it's all just about the messaging, and not the old, tired and retrograde message that's The Problem. They forget that they've already wrung all the deception that there is from linguistic wizardry. Marco Rubio the savior of the GOP? HA! -- Christie would carve him up and devour him for a midnight snack. Some punishment, that snub -- more like a badge of electability.

If they're unwise enough to not nominate a Moderate in 2016 (and they are), they'd better start thinking about 2024.

Meh. The way the political climate is turning, Christie will be at an advantage distancing himself from the far right. The difficulty, however, remains in the primaries-- can't see him getting very far without appeasing the radicals in the party. And therein lies the problem with the current Republican party...

Obesity is an indication of malnutrition. I think that Christie needs medical help.

I tell you, if Christie is chosen as the Republican Presidential candidate, I might actually vote Republican. Sounds like someone who won't let the party line dictate his actions. I like that.

Christie probably doesn't stand a chance surviving the Republican primary. I personally don't think he is presidential timber. Quick to anger, too often speaks without thinking first. Don't know what to think about his weight problem. But someone as obese as he is obviously has some psychological issues that need dealing with. My hunch is that if he doesn't hand them over to a therapist, they'll come spilling out once he's under national spotlight.

Sad that there is a CPAC, injecting faux religious superstitions into our governmental process...as phony as the ridiculous pope process. CPAC 'purists' is why Romney's not President...they make the candidates promise & pander, otherwise they'll not vote. Sadly, it's all about issues that candidates shouldn't even be discussing in the first place and ends up scaring more voters than it gains.
Sure wish we could stick to economic issues, and leave personal lives to the persons! MYOB and I'll mind mine.

What is so cute is that the Republican party knows how to self destruct! tee hee...

I wonder if that is their goal...if they don't like you, they harm all Republicans? so funny...

You're right Cholo, when they spout off with zero clue about 'winning', talk phony 'purity' and as candidates spew stupidity, ALL other Republicans are harmed. It's usually the ones who 'trash' mainstream Republicans, but don't have enough spine to run under their own ticket, and cowardly end up running as a Republican...but a lousy one. ...and they are the ones unable to mind their own business, instead intrude and meddle into personal lives of others....pests
