    Jeb Bush Could Emerge As GOP Nominee At A Brokered Convention, Says Top Republican By TOBY HARNDEN 11th February 2012 Al Cardenas, head of the American Conservative Union, has said that Republican turmoil might lead to a brokered convention in which Jeb Bush, former Florida governor, would emerge as a 'possible alternative' party nominee. Mr Cardenas, who is running this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), a gathering in Washington of some 10,000 conservatives, told MailOnline that it was not certain that one of the four current Republican candidates would emerge victorious. His comments came as Republicans fretted publicly about...

    Via Mediaite, the key bit comes at 5:15 but don’t skip. Watch the whole thing, as this is easily the most entertaining speech you’ll see at CPAC. Naturally he’s coy about what he’s got, but it sounds like it has to do with O as a student radical. I wonder if big media, having heard this, will scramble to try to uncover the footage and put it out ASAP so that it’s old news by the time of the general election. Can’t wait to hear their explanations for why they couldn’t be bothered to do that last cycle. Note well...

    Newt Gingrich was on fire at CPAC this afternoon, proving once again that the former House Speaker is political Teflon. Apparently recovered after his epic meltdown in Nevada, Gingrich revved up the crowd at CPAC with an impassioned version of his stump speech that hit all the conservative high notes (Obamacare, taxes, war on religion, et. al.) In short, Gingrich managed to give the audience the "red meat" that his main rival Mitt Romney failed to deliver earlier this afternoon. Read more:

    Former Georgia Congressman Newt Gingrich was the last one of the three GOP presidential candidates to address the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., on Friday, February 10, 2012. The former Speaker of the House spent most of his 30 minute-speech attacking the “Washington establishment.” Incidentally, not many Congressional Republicans have been supportive of Gingrich’s candidacy, instead endorsing his main rival former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. The Speaker made it clear on Friday that there’s nothing surprising about Washington’s resistance to a possible Gingrich presidency. “For the Republican establishment managing the decay is preferable to changing the trajectory, because...
  • Gingrich Wows in CPAC speech. Lays out specific plan for dismantling 40% of Obama damage on Day 1.

    Newt Gingrich gave a spellbinding speech at CPAC today. He laid out specific plans for dismantling 40% of the Obama damage on Day 1 of a Gingrich presidency. Newt really has a plan and has the skills and experience to get this done. But now it is obvious that Newt has a Conservative Dream Team including Herman Cain, Fred Thompson, Rick Perry, Ollie North, Mike Reagan and others, to help move the nomination and the message forward. Newt Gingrich is the superior candidate with the superior message and action plan. Now the Dream Team has to go out and sell...

    Just walked in from CPAC and all I can say is, "Wow!" A hotel filled with 12,000+ Conservative Activists and supporters was very impressive and I mostly went down to cover the supposed protest by Occupy DC and their thug union pals as part of Big's coverage. As far as the protesters, I can sum it all up in two words, "Epic Fail!" First of all Conservatives had spread the word about them claiming they would assault certain Conservative Figure and disrupt the convention with criminal acts. Seem the damage was done when Human Events reported that union thugs...

    Andrew Breitbart took the podium at CPAC Friday afternoon, introduced to the stage with Rage Against The Machine’s Guerilla Radio, and revealed to the audience he had “videos” of Barack Obama from his college days. “I have videos, this election we’re going to vet him,” Breitbart disclosed to raucous applause. “We are going to vet him from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”“The videos are going to come out, the narrative is going to come out, that Barack Obama met a bunch of...

    Conservatives are fired up, convinced that this will be a big year, but they worry that Mitt Romney will make their task harder. The foot soldiers of the American political right have been meeting in Washington this week, and stickers and signs touting the former Massachusetts governor - who's still the favorite for the GOP presidential nomination - are scarce here.

    Mitt Romney sent a clear, unambiguous message to hundreds of conservative activists gathered for the 2012 Conservative Political Action Committee, the largest annual gathering of conservative activists. He’s a conservative. The man mocked as a “Massachusetts moderate” (or worse) by his Republican presidential rivals used his family values, business background and experience as Massachusetts governor to defend his conservative bona fides. Romney used the word conservative more than 20 times in a span of 25 minutes.

    Occupy protesters, conservatives clash at CPAC conferenceBy Josh Lederman - 02/10/12 01:33 PM ET A brief altercation broke out between Occupy Wall Street protesters and conservative activists at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday. A group of Occupy protesters who infiltrated the hotel by registering and paying for the conference blocked a television screen where an overflow crowd was watching Mitt Romney address the convention, their mouths taped over to symbolize being silenced. There was a brief clash between the protesters and conference-goers, who booed and yelled while shoving them out of the way. Security was summoned to the...

    Conservative columnist and Conservative Political Action Conference fan favorite Ann Coulter took to the stage at CPAC Friday afternoon to offer some comments about her frustrations with President Obama, her support for presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and the general unattractiveness of liberal women. In response to an audience question regarding how a person could be both a women and a conservative, Coulter explained that is what true women actually are. “I think all real females are right-wingers,” Coulter said, ” and I can tell you that based on experience — and my bodyguard will back me up on this —...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) made a concerted effort to woo a conservative crowd today by talking about his opposition to gay marriage even before plans to slash the deficit. He also peppered his speech before a full house at CPAC with the word “conservative,” frequently in the form of “we conservatives.” “I did some of the very things conservatism is designed for… and I’m not ashamed to say I was successful in doing it,” Romney said for his first standing ovation, and his longest round of applause.

    Protesters at Friday’s “Occupy CPAC” event, organized by AFL-CIO and the Occupy DC movement, told The Daily Caller that they were paid “sixty bucks a head” to protest outside the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C. One protester told TheDC that all the “Occupy” activists were being paid to protest, and that his union, Sheet Metal Workers Local 100, approached him about the money-making opportunity. “I have nothing nice to say about Local 100. … They just told me ‘you wanna make sixty bucks? So c’mon,’” the protester said. Other “Occupy CPAC” protesters were unwilling to speak on camera...

    Rick Santorum’s is a familiar face at CPAC. He’s been here in years when he was little more than a sidenote in the programming, and he’s been here in years, like this one, when his is the face attendees crowd to see. But, year in and year out, what he has stood for has not changed. That consistency was especially evident in his speech today, in which he expounded on his — and, indeed, Americans’ — long-held conviction that men are endowed with rights by their Creator — not given those rights by the government. “We know there’s a lot...
