Republican officials are looking to promote a fresh group of diverse rising stars to help resolve their election woes, while frustrated party elders insist that all Republicans must offer more solutions for the nation's most pressing issues.

Solve their election woes?

No problema. Just keep disenfranchising minority
voters as was done in the Old South before Civil
Rights and they might win elections no matter what.

Kick the Constitution and the Bill of Rights under
the bus and charge ahead with all that white supremacist stuff.

States rights! No minority voting allowed.

Low comprehension skills.
Christie's career is fine and dandy but he was jumped all over (nothing about destroyed) by the gops because he dared to speak well of this president.
Of course more reasoned folks believed he was trying to find solutions for his constituents.
I understand that your comprehensive skills are low and I will try to make this as simple as I can. I said if a Democrat steps out of the party line their political career will be destroyed by their party. You come back with the fact that Christie was criticized for saying something nice about Obama by members of his party. His political career was not destroyed in fact that he made a few kind remarks about Obama or by any other stands he has taken in opposition to the Republican Party line because he thought it right or best.
That proves my point that Republicans are more tolerant of decent in their party than Democrats. If a Democrat was to speak out in support of immigration enforcement or in opposition to pro-choice or gay marriage it would be a career ender. They would be labeled by their own party as a racist homophobe or a woman hater.
Seems that the Democratic Party is tolerant of everybody as long as they follow the party line.

Although he has been invited in the past Christie was not invited to this years C-PAC convention after being photographed alongside the President of the United States.

Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union, which hosts CPAC explained that Christie was not invited this year because he is not considered an "all-star" and had a limited future in the party.

It does not sound like his career is on the fast track?

By the way, although Christie did not make the cut the all star team that spoke at this year's convention included Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Allen West.

I think it tells you a lot about the party when these losers have a future in the party and Christie does not.

Well if you really like distortion, look at Obama's employment numbers. By the Way, Bush's average was 34% but now it is climbing higher than that of Obama. All Obama has is welfare queens and low information young morons.

Your argument is so full of holes, you could drain spaghetti through it.

And your condescending insult toward "RESPONSIBILITY" is the intellectual equivalent of Sarah Palin saying the claim that the world is round is part of Obama's socialist agenda.

Finally, Dee, it's "comprehension skills", not "comprehensive skills" (though the latter would be an unintended compliment). I hope you can comprehend the difference.

You've been whining since '08. Never a word about what the baggers can do, because they can't do a thing. Obama owns you.

I would not count Christie out of anything. He has made a lot of friends as the governor of a Democratic state in a Democratic region of the country by doing what true Republicans do best, fixing the economy, and I do agree that the recent choices the Republican leaders have made make it look like they want to give the Presidency away. On the other hand when I look at whom the Democratic Party chooses as their "stars" and what they have done and stand for I am equally unimpressed. The Republicans need to get back to true conservative policies and get away from extreme right wing. Bowing to the extreme right worked politically for a while just as the Democrats bowing to the extreme left is working for now. Once people see the results they will swing back right. It has been that way for over 200 years.

I reiterate .... the republicants were not exactly "tolerant" and "decent" when Christie went out of the red meat agenda to thank the president.

I don't agree with Christie on many stances but on this one the republicants looked like petulant children.

Perhaps that is tolerant and decent in the Party of No. As the pettiness is explained below:

But in the days after the storm, Mr. Christie and his advisers were startled to hear from out-of-state donors to Mr. Romney, who had little interest in the hurricane and viewed him solely as a campaign surrogate, demanding to know why he had stood so close to the president on a tarmac. One of them questioned why he had boarded Mr. Obama’s helicopter, according to people briefed on the conversations.

Not so fast, Le Bimbo. Bush's average unemployment numbers are not worth the Charmin they're printed on.
When Bush came into office, unemployment was at 4.1%. When he left office, it was at 8.1%. You can look 'er up.

Nope, still wrong.

Sen Pryor (AR), Sen Landrieu (LA), and Sen Manchin (WV) all still oppose marriage equality and their careers haven't been ended; at least not by the party. The voters on the other hand may indeed choose to end their careers, but that's what voters are for.

You deliberately chose to be partisan.

BOTH parties expect their members to adhere to basic core principles, but for political reasons (i.e. to win elections in enemy territory) both parties will allow some dissent as well.

I actually think all party members (whether Dem or GOP) SHOULD have to vote in accordance with the core positions listed in the party plank if they expect monetary support from the party for election/reelection. If you're not going to vote in accordance with the party's core positions, then why are you a member of that party; run as an independent.

Unfortunately for Gov Christie, by the time the Republicans realize they need to dump the religious right which currently controls their party, it will be too late for him.

Christie has ZERO chance of winning the 2016 primary. They're going HARD RIGHT this time, with someone like Rand Paul or Rick Santorum, or some other sacrificial nutjob they'll put up against Hillary. They know they can't beat Hillary no matter who they put up, so why waste a real candidate like Christie. Then the money men running the Republican party can say they gave the nutjobs their candidate of choice in 2016 and can put up a realistic choice in 2020 or 2024.

Btw, I voted for Clinton twice, against Bush twice, for Obama twice, but I'd actually consider voting for Christie.

Psst, it's not the messenger, but rather the MESSAGE!

Trotting out a couple more brown or black or female faces to spew forth that same lame GOPasaur message isn't going to work any better than last time.

If you want to attract more younger women & minorities to the party, you're going to have to stop opposing basic rights for women & minorities.

YES, you need to dump opposition to abortion, gay marriage, & amnesty.

Otherwise you can wave bye-bye to yet another entire generation of voters.
