"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Look at how CNN is reporting this

Quote
CPAC: 'Republican leaders preach the gospel to the faithful' - CNN.com

Washington (CNN) -- You can describe it as a political convention or a carnival, but either way, all eyes are on the Conservative Political Action Conference this week

The three-day event -- better known by its initials, CPAC -- kicks off Thursday at National Harbor, a major convention center just outside of the nation's capital. The conference is the largest annual gathering of conservative leaders and activists, and when there's no Republican in the White House, it's a must-attend cattle call for GOP presidential hopefuls looking to pass the conference's conservative litmus test. CPAC will close Saturday with the much-watched results of the confab's GOP presidential nomination straw poll.

"After the Super Bowl and the two parties' national conventions, CPAC is the most covered event in the country," Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union, the organization that puts on the conference, told CNN.
Latest developments

"It's the only venue where thousands of activists get to see, back to back during our three-day conference, the likely 2016 leading GOP presidential candidates and begin to create perceptions which last through Election Day."
 
Sen. Cruz on possible 2016 rivals Conservative groups back Ariz. bill Obama blames Fox News for gridlock?
Among those addressing the crowd this year are nearly all the major names among the potential 2016 Republican White House contenders. They include Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Marco Rubio of Florida, Ted Cruz of Texas, and Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the 2012 GOP vice presidential nominee. Also speaking are Govs. Rick Perry of Texas, who ran for the Republican nomination in 2012, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Chris Christie of New Jersey, who wasn't invited last year because he wasn't considered conservative enough.

http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/06/politics/cpac-2014-republicans-conservatives/index.html

And the headline News points out Christie's speech and call it bridgegate when speaking of how it is his first speech since. Does not headline he got a standing Ovation.

According to a live report to the floor from CPAC Christie got a lot of applause today (did he stack the audience ala Romney and Paul in years gone past?)

As for Mitch's macho gun moment:
Quote
On March 6th Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) brought a gun to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). McConnell carried a rifle onto the stage and handed it to Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK).

According to the National Journal, McConnell's moment with Coburn and the rifle gave him a chance to get something he did not get much of during his "five minutes on stage," namely, applause.

McConnell was sending two messages with the rifle:
1.It was a gun, and conservatives are looking for politicians who will fight for gun rights.
2.Coburn is "a hero among fiscal hawks," and McConnell wants to be a favorite among them as well.

McConnell is currently seeking his sixth term in the U.S. Senate.

Breitbart: Fiery Chris Christie Returns to CPAC: They are the Party of Intolerance, Not Us
Quote
NATIONAL HARBOR, MD--Chris Christie returned to the Conservative Political Action Conference this year with something to prove after being on the receiving end of an embarrassing scandal and watching his conservative support slowly dwindle. He had a message for the audience: be pro-life through all of life, and be aggressive against the left.

Noting that Democrats had never had a pro-life speaker at their convention, the New Jersey governor urged the crowd to reframe the way they were encouraged by the media to see the situation: "They are the party of intolerance, not us." In typical form, Christie joked that he was "shy and retiring," not one to speak up against the media, and he encouraged those who were, in reality, shy to speak up for the sake of the movement. "We are not going to put up any longer with them defining who we are," he declared. But that, he continued, required a consistent moral disposition.

"When we say we are pro-life... we need to be pro-life when they leave the womb, as well," he told the crowd, returning to the key highlights of his inauguration speech in New Jersey earlier this year. In that speech, Christie argued that rehabilitating drug offenders should be a pivotal tenet of conservative philosophy. When the children conservatives save from abortion "fall victim to disease," Christie told the crowd, "we need to rehabilitate those kids, because every life is precious no matter where they are in society."

Christie also had some strong words for President Obama's economic and foreign policies, the latter a topic that Christie has not so often touched. "We are for America being a leader in the world, and we are for a strong national defense, not one that allows other countries to run us over all over the world," Christie told the crowd, emphasizing that conservatives, not the media, should define who conservatives are. If conservatives do not continue to be a beacon of freedom around the world, "we're not the only losers," Christie argued. "The rest of the world loses if we don't do that."

Christie loves to brag about Christie, he proved that when he made the Romney convention speech.

Good question.  But we'll never know.
