Posted on 02/10/2011 2:16:35 PM PST by speciallybland
A steady stream of Texas Rep. Ron Paul's supporters walked out of a planned tribute for Donald Rumsfeld at CPAC Thursday afternoon. The walk-out had been planned ahead of time in part by Campaign for Liberty organizers and it seemed to be supported by more than 100 CPAC attendees.
The former defense secretary was also booed when took to the stage. There seemed to be a back-and-forth between Paul supporters and other CPAC attendees trying to drown each other out while Rumsfeld watched.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney then took the stage, but the heckling did not stop in what was an amazing display of friction. Someone in the crowd yelled to Cheney above the din "draft dodger." Nonetheless, the crowd is overwhelmingly warm to Rumsfeld, who eventually took his place in the presentation.

I knew the Paulites would be out in force again at CPAC. Now look for them to give Ron Paul the victory in the straw poll for POTUS.
CPAC is a total disaster.
The Ron Paul nuts in action.
Not a surprise. This organization has done nothing but slap traditional conservatives around lately.
Hence the term Paultard.
They act just like liberals - they can’t win on the battlefield of ideas, so they disrupt.
Liberal moles infiltrating CPAC.
That’s it for Ron Paul, for me. I love Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney, too.
I just got tweet from Rummy Twitter account LOL!

They are rude.
Absolutely disgraceful. Rumsfeld is not without his faults, but who isn't? We've gone 10-years without a major, coordinated attack on American soil. Rumsfeld deserves his share of the credit. The people who were killed attacking American service members in Iraq and Afghanistan, would have found their way to America, had they not been stopped.
Paultards, and many others, apparently are either ignorant to this fact, or they choose to ignore it.
Between the sodomites and the Paulistinians, CPAC is a joke whose punchline needs to be gotten over with.
CPAC is a joke.
Tea Parties in town squares and parks around this country are where conservatives meet to plan victory. Not at blue blood beltway circle jerks.
Seems the Paulites and Code Pink have much in common.
Ok, rude ingnorant, nuts. The many that post here go to extremes to hide their nutty positions.
Are they showing this on CSPAN?

Many others.....could we say FReetards
