Hindsight proves Palin’s foresight is 20/20.

"CPAC is practically owned by the Romney camp with the organization’s executive director in his back pocket."

"Indeed, one of the hottest pieces of swag at the event was giant Sarah Palin posters."

David Keene of the American Conservative Union chose the keynote speakers.

“Washington Insider David Keene Disses Governor Palin, Claims to Speak for Grassroots
“Keene’s ACU also puts on the annual CPAC conference in Washington.

.In the last three years CPAC has devolved into nothing more than
an annual love fest for the most established of establishment
Republicans, Mitt Romney. It should come as no surprise that David
Keene supported Mitt Romney in 2008. “

“David Keene Endorses Romney“

Well, if the Brokeback CPAC event is any indication of what we’re in for, I guess she did the right thing.

Keene wanted Governor Palin at CPAC, because she would have drawn many more participants, enhancing CPAC’s bottom line. Indeed, one of the hottest pieces of swag at the event was giant Sarah Palin posters. The entire batch ran out very quickly.

Most interesting!

Sarah probably had a good heads up from her journalist friend in los angeles. Remember John Ziegler had a video of confrontation with the cpac creep? Good for Sarah for skipping this fake meeting of conservatives.

Those Sarah Palin posters were snatched up so fast, because those who wanted her image yearn for a leader to carry Ronald Reagan’s torch. None of the alternatives present could satisfy that yearning.

Sarah's poster packs a punch. ";^)

He was one of Romney earliest supporters for the 08 election cycle.

He played his card. He’s shown his card. I don’t think he is any less a conservative but it is a big letdown as DeMint is a top tier conservative.

He’s likely making a play for VP with Romney.

Schwarzenegger, Gingrich, Hannity, Huckabee, and Perry...now there’s a line-up of rock-ribbed ‘conservatives’...like the rest of the speakers, though...

Well, I haven’t trusted a politician since Reagan,and Hunter, so nothing would surprise me anymore. I don’t care a rats a$$ what any politician SAYS. I only care what they have done, and are currently DOING.

I put my faith in Christ before any and all politicians.

I’ve you’ve ever been active at the local level, you’ll find out that you can’t trust any of them.

Still, we can throw them all under the bus due to not being absolutely pure. DeMint I think is a good man and an excellent conservative. He saw a political opportunity and he went for it. That’s what politicians do.

“I put my faith in Christ before any and all politicians.”

Only way to go.

“I’ve you’ve ever been active at the local level”

I have been since about age 20. I’m 55.

49 Here...

Clinton seemed like the worst of the worst....this guy I believe truely, to be a Marxist.

He will go down as the worst since Jimmy Carter, he is damaging our nation...I’m surprised nobody has taken a shot at him yet.

2010 and 2012 could be real realignment toward conservatism.

“..this guy I believe truely, to be a Marxist.”

Of course he is. He has been since about the age of 20, and he has never looked back. We really need to impeach him, but he would have to commit some heinous felony for anyone to try.

I was for Hunter. When he fizzled, I half heartedly went for Thompson. Then there was nothing left but losers.

Hmmm....IMHO, couple of names on there are a waste of time...Barbour, Gingrich, Pawlenty...all border-line RINOs??.
