Skip to comments.CPAC Wraps Up: Sarah Palin, Grover Norquist Among Final Speakers [C-SPAN LIVE]
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

Ron Paul had a scheduling conflict probably with a Code Pink

When is Sarah speaking?
Norquist? Spit, spit, spit...he has no business at CPAC.

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
I think they hold the straw poll there before Sarah speaks.
What’s his delegate count?

Here’s just a few tweets from the Twitterstorm which exploded when Sarah Palin walked into the building:
John Hawkins @johnhawkinsrwn
I can positively confirm that @SarahPalinUSA is in the house already. #CPAC
Michelle Moore @Michelle_Moore
Sarah Palin has arrived on site with a huge security detail. #CPAC
John Talty @JTalty
Sarah Palin walking thru the hotel has caused a massive scene. People are fighting to get near her as security clears the area.
Peter Hamby @PeterHambyCNN
Palin tells @jeffzeleny & me that Romney “really [needs to] start connecting more with conservatives.” If he’s nominee, she warns turnout could suffer
Brandt Anderson @BrandtAnderson
I almost got run over by a mob trying to see Sarah Palin... #onlyatCPAC

Breaking from #CPAC. “Palin: (A brokered convention) would not be a negative for the party.” j.mp/yZgFCv [VIDEO]

John Nolte @NolteNC
Hey, remember when Twitter lit up for all the “relevant” Cons at CPAC like it did for “irrelevant” Palin? #MeNeither

Sen John Cornyn: “I’ll make these remarks brief since I’m standing between you and Sarah Palin.”
Yep its 4:30PM Eastern, just saw it come across the screen at CSPAN :-) am VERY excited to hear what she has to say..the line to get inside is insane from what Im hearing
“Sen John Cornyn: Ill make these remarks brief since Im standing between you and Sarah Palin.
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

Everyone has to repeat every single word..a speaker says
now are onto the Tea Party:
“They fight for freedom to pollute, causing illness, death, premature births and destruction of eco system which our lives depend on they fight for the freedom of corporations that play by a different set of rules....destroy the labor movement to give as a gift and their grandchildren we stand for the freedom of all people not corporations and the wealthy..”
People shouting back “take a shower you dirty hippies get a job”.. lol
Right Wingers are Nazis shout the Occupiers
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!
Folks can go to the CPAC site itself to see all the festivities live.
Romney wins. Santorum second.
Not just Romney but Romney with 38% too.
Sarah “We are red, white and blue and President Obama...WE ARE THROUGH WITH YOU!!!!”
Sarah’s giving a great speech!!!
Sarah “Hope and Change! Oh yeah...you better hope things change!!!!”
I love her!
This what we should be hearing from our candidates!!!!!!!
Not pablum and mush...
Sarah: “Obama says he has a jobs plan to wind the future! WTF, I KNOW!”
woops! wind s/b win..OR..should it???? (lol!)
“Stand up for those who cannot stand for themselves! If not us then who????”
Ronnie in a skirt.
“We refuse to accept that a weaker America makes a better and safer world!”
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.
We have so many wonderful choices, whom do you suggest we back?
Gad, I sure hope that brokered convention means Sarah for President.
When Sarah mentioned reforms in her speech, I don’t think that fits Sanctimonium or Obromney, those two are for the status quo.
Far and away the best speech I heard was given by Daniel Hannan.
