We’ll find out shortly whether his sentiments are more widely-shared among attendees, Save Jerseyans, but the Daily Beast‘s Olivia Nuzzi ran into this gentleman at CPAC 2014 who reportedly told her that he’s hoping to stage a walkout protest of Governor Chris Christie’s 11:45 a.m. Thursday address to the annual conservative conference:
Fox News is carrying a live-stream of CPAC 2014 on Thursday, Save Jerseyans, including Governor Chris Christie’s much anticipated address at 11:45 a.m. Today’s speech comes on the heels of a brand new WashPo/ABC poll which found the RGA chieftain’s popularity down significantly relative to the rest of the probable 2016 presidential race field.
The political world is anxiously waiting to hear what Governor Chris Christie says – and how the audience reacts – when he addresses the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. on Thursday at approximately 11:45 a.m.
It’s just one man’s opinion, Save Jerseyans, but New Jersey Democrats have been watching too much True Detective as of late. Each one of them is trying to leave a unique footprint on the Bridgegate/Sandygate/Whatevergate saga by wildly speculating as to the possible existence of new dimensions of corruption enveloping the embattled Christie Administration and, hopefully, landing themselves some air time with Rachel Maddow.
Tuesday night was Sen. Raymond Lesniak’s turn to succumb to its grip.
The liberal Democrat who led the charge to end New Jersey’s death penalty cast due process to the wind and openly speculated, without any cited evidence, whether Governor Chris Christie had committed a form of tax fraud…
Winter Storm Titan is poised to drop anywhere from a few to a foot of snow and ice on the Garden State over the next 24 hours. Governor Christie has once again declared a state of emergency and closed state government for all but “essential” employees on Monday.

Governor Chris Christie came charging into Trenton pledging to turn it upside down in 2010. He made a left turn onto the Boulevard of Compromise in 2011, cruised the boulevard through 2012 and rode the waves of Sandy through 2013. Now he’s hit a dead end on the bridgegate to nowhere.
The message of the FY 2015 Budget Address is ‘No Change.” Christie warned of the looming crisis we sent him to Trenton to fix and offered no solutions. No reductions in government. An increase in spending. Christie lamented that he couldn’t spend more because of commitments made to people who are no longer working and to repay money that has already been spent.
Christie meekly suggested that more pension and benefit reforms are necessary in order to grow the state government. State Senate President Steve Sweeney said, “We’re not doing it.”
If Governor Chris Christie’s presidential prospects have been damaged by the Bridgegate scandal and associated investigations, you wouldn’t know it by the amount of television cameras at the Town Hall Meeting in Port Monmouth this morning. Middletown officials estimate the crowd was about 500 people. There was easily 50 members of the media including reporters, photographers and videographers.
There was no swagger from the Governor today. No fist pumps, no snazzy introductory video, no in your face insults to hostile questioners. Christie dodged the only hostile question he heard. The Youtube moment came not from an idiot or thin skinned reporter, but from a three year old girl who said her house is still broken.
Bridgegate, the controversy over the September lane closures at the George Washington Bridge that has spurred investigations by the U.S. Attorney and a Special Legislative Committee never came up. The people who came to today’s meeting would gladly trade places with the Bergen County residents who were inconvenienced by traffic jams for four days. They been without their homes for 16 months.
Governor Chris Christie was referring to his formidable but shrinking waistline, Save Jerseyans, although with everything going on right now, he could’ve just as easily been talking about 10 other things…
