“Sources” tonight are confirming that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will have to buy a ticket if he wants to attend this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference. Will that seat next to first lady Michelle Obama at the black tie 2013 Governors Dinner be enough of a consolation prize?
So, who snubbed whom? Twitter has plenty of theories. Was Christie not invited because he’s simply not a conservative? Is it payback for that hug he and the president shared during the campaign? Is it possible the CPAC organizers were giving the popular governor an “out” to preserve his bipartisan support? Or are they shooting themselves in the foot? Maybe Christie didn’t want to attend anyway.
Is Christie getting ready to follow in Charlie Crist’s orange footsteps and switch parties? There’s an Obama fist-bump in it for him.
