C-Span ^ | Saturday, February 11, 2012 | C-Span

Posted on 02/11/2012 11:48:15 AM PST by fight_truth_decay

C-SPAN continues its LIVE coverage of the 39th annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Saturday in Washington. The last of the 3-day conference wraps up today with speeches by Grover Norquist and Sarah Palin.

Also speaking today, Chairman of National Republican Senatorial Committee Sen. John Cornyn.

On Friday, the three top GOP candidates for the Republican nomination -- former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum -- addressed the conference. Rep. Ron Paul was invited to speak this year but instead stayed on the campaign trail.

More than 10,000 conservatives are in Washington DC

Sarah Palin’s CPAC speech [Closing] hurts, helps Mitt Romney, conservative movement?

Sarah Palin joins CPAC with a speech in Washington Saturday. Will she help or hurt Mitt Romney, and change opinions about Rick Santorum?

What impact, if any, will she have on the conservative movement and Newt Gingrich’s falling poll numbers? In past Conservative Political Action Conference meetings, just the mention or http://www.topix.com/us-governors/sarah-palin/2012/02/sarah-palins-cpac-speech-hurts-helps-mitt-romney-conservative-movement

CPACrs just went outside to spray silly string on Occupiers. But first, they asked a cop if it was ok. He said no. So they didn’t. #FAIL

Marriott Ballroom? We stayed at the JW Marriott in DC this summer, nice place to stay but the restaurant served crummy food. :) Fillimondo’s was superb!

I hope his fans realize Santorum is a crony capitalist. He was part of the permanent political class until he got fired. He enriched himself by cozying up to lobbyists and building GOP ties with K Street with the disgraced Tom DeLay. Almost two dozen of his staffers become lobbyists and, when PA gave him a pink slip, he joined them by peddling his influence.

When Sarah mentioned reforms in her speech, I don’t think that fits Sanctimonium or Obromney, those two are for the status quo.
