Skip to comments.Top 5 Speakers from CPAC
Posted on 02/13/2012 1:05:42 PM PST by bthockey
I had such an amazing time at CPAC. I met amazing people, heard great conservative speakers, and spent a great deal of time with our blog team which was a lot of fun in and of itself! I wanted to take some time to list my favorite speakers that I heard at the conference. I decided to leave out all of the GOP candidates as I didn't get to see two of them so I don't want to give a biased answer or make anyone think I'm endorsing someone. If you wanted to go to CPAC or you missed any of these speeches I would urge you to watch them! They are extremely good.

Was any of them severely conservative?
Can’t view site from here.
I still trying to figure out why Ann Coulter was there being that she had a sex, I mean party change, and became a liberal. I was half expecting Keith Olbermann to show up next after that, but I guess there was no need being that Ann spoke for him.
So the author would choose the not a natural born citizen Rubio over the one who got the most standing ovations???
As Sarah said....WTF?
GINGRICH: Now, I am going to give you a series of solutions that are big enough to get America back on the right track. And I think this has been the greatest challenge of this campaign.
We have lots of bickering; we have lots of arguments about this and that. We have virtually no discussion of what does it really take to take the most complicated society in the world, the largest economy in the world, and move it back to being the most successful, most prosperous, safest and freest country in the world.
So I am going to try this afternoon to set the stage for that.
And we have tons of details at Newt.org any of you want, to just go to my first name dot org. You will see an immense amount of material.
But the standard here is that solutions big enough to get America working again and the principle is to unleash the American people to rebuild the America we love.
Let me start with jobs: If I am the nominee, with your help, I will ask the entire Republican ticket to campaign with me on the pledge that when the Congress comes in on January 3, it will stay in session, and by January 20, when I am sworn in, it will have repealed Obamacare.
GINGRICH: It will have repealed Dodd-Frank.
GINGRICH: It will have repealed Sarbanes-Oxley.
GINGRICH: All three of those are job killing bills, which centralized bureaucracy in Washington DC and increased the corruption of the political system. All three should be repealed and held at the desk until I am sworn in. That afternoon, on the very first day, we should sign the repeal of all three. That's a reasonable start.
GINGRICH: Two hours after the Inaugural Address that was just the hors doeurve. We haven't got around to serious work, yet.
After the Inaugural Address, I will spend it signing executive orders and presidential findings. All of them will have been published by October 1. The country will know precisely what this campaign is about.
The very first executive order will abolish all of the White House czars, as of that moment.
GINGRICH: We will sign, that day, an executive order, which as of that moment, approves of the Canadian pipeline to Houston, period.
GINGRICH: My message to Prime Minister Harper and the Canadian government is simple: You do not need a partnership with the Chinese. Give the American people a few months. When we beat Obama on election night, you can start buying equipment because we will approve it on January 20th.
GINGRICH: There will be an executive order to move the State Department, to put the embassy in Jerusalem as of that day, period.
GINGRICH: We will, that day, reinstate Ronald Reagan's Mexico City Policy No money for abortion overseas, period.
GINGRICH: And we will have an executive order to repeal every act of religious bigotry by the Obama administration period.
My goal, with your help, is that by the time President Obama lands in Chicago, we will have repudiated at least 40 percent of his government on the opening-day.
Rubio (whom the male author admits he’s in love with)
Ann Coulter and CPAC are both friendly with Mitt Romney and GOProud. It makes sense for her to be there since the organizers of CPAC feel the same way. What I wonder is why any real conservatives bother showing up. Didn't FR join the boycott of the CPAC last year? What happened to that this year?
Breitbart was awesome, IMO.
Who were the morons who voted in the Straw Poll and picked the RINO, Mittens??? They bought into Mittens BS?
I’ll ask two FReepers who were there.
I have my own opinions from watching at home.
How was Ann received by the CPACers when she was on the stage?
? ? ? All the rest but Romney and Colter fall in here.
I didn’t see Ryan’s.
I know, I was there. Again, I didn’t put in any candidates because I didn’t see all of them so I didn’t want to be biased. But I still disagree. I don’t think Newt gave that great of a speech. He didn’t bring anything new to the table. He has said all of that before.
Maybe they were just "bought."
What I read was that the author wants Rubio on the VP list and also said that even though he likes Sarah that she is not a VP or POTUS choice.
Saw Bobby Jindal’s and Rick Scott’s speeches after Palin spoke on c-span and they were two of the best ever.
No, you’re no biased!!! Go Newt.
Gov. Bobby Jindal:
Gov. Rick Scott:
The Tea Party Panel on Occupy Wall Street:
Gov. Scott Walker:
Rep. Paul Ryan:
Fmr Ambassador John Bolton:
