Governor Chris Christie in Q&A Session with Laura Ingraham

You have to give it to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ). He is quite gregarious and relatable. This is probably why he is so likeable, even with his very well known confrontational personality. The folks here at CPAC are not his core constituency – we are not the people he can count as his main supporters – but he came anyway and made his pitch for our support.

Christie was greeted warmly and much of what he said was well received. See, even conservatives understand that we owe Governor Christie a debt of gratitude for doing what most other Republicans couldn’t — winning state office in New Jersey.

Instead of giving a speech, Governor Christie sat down to speak with radio host and pundit Laura Ingraham. Ingraham focused the discussion on how Christie could win over conservatives who are worried that there are too many differences between Christie and the base.



I thought Christie acquitted himself well, but if his campaign is destined to be filled with questions about whether or not he’s conservative enough… how can he win? I don’t believe that Christie will ever gain the full confidence of national conservatives, and that bodes very badly for him. He can’t beat the liberals while trying to appeal to conservatives and moderates at the same time. It’s just not possible.
