I know it’s early, but here’s one good example of why I believe Chris Christie’s eventual presidential bid will fizzle out like Rudy Giuliani. via TheHill
An aide confirmed to The Hill that Christie had not been invited to the summit, which brings together conservative activists and leaders from across the nation for a three-day powwow in Washington, D.C. [...]
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins told The Hill that Christie wasn’t invited because “we only invited conservatives that we work with.”
Chris Christie made the career-ending mistake of cooperating with the black president of the United States following a record-setting natural disaster. For this he has been banished.
Meanwhile Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan, and Bobby Jindal are more the welcome to attend the Values Voters Summit and spread the values of intransigence and ignorance.
Furthermore, while I do not like Chris Christie for a variety of reasons, I don’t believe he’s the type of conservative who would shut the government down or default on our debt. And the events of the last several weeks could very well be a litmus test during the 2016 Republican primary.
Did you participate in the Great GOP Government Shutdown of 2013? No? Get lost.
Did you cooperate with the president and prevent the country from defaulting? Yes? You’re dead to us.
The party is not going to moderate in time for 2016. It may not moderate in time for 2020. It’s going to have to burn itself out, and this oil well is very deep.
