During a panel discussion Sunday on ABC's "This Week," a former top aid for President George W. Bush said that Sarah Palin should not have been invited to the Conservative Political Action Conference (Cpac), since she wasn't even competent enough to hold down her job at Fox News.

Matthew Dowd, a chief strategist for George W. Bush's reelection, slammed Cpac (scheduled to kick off in mid-March) for inviting the one-time vice presidential candidate to the popular conference, while passing over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R).

"Cpac, to me, has totally diminished its credibility as an organization,” Dowd said. “And you invite Sarah Palin, who wasn’t competent enough to keep a Fox News contract? But she’s invited to a Cpac meeting?”

It was announced in January that Palin and Fox News would be parting ways, following her sometimes contentious final year as a network contributor.
