    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...

    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...

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.

    Rick Santorum’s is a familiar face at CPAC.

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...

"This election cannot be just a referendum on President (Barack) Obama's failed leadership," said Ryan, of Janesville.

    At last year's CPAC gathering, the mere sight of a Sarah Palin impersonator was enough to throw some attendees into a star-struck frenzy. Such was Palin's clout among conservative activists in February 2011, just a few months after she played a critical role in the 2010 midterms and when she was stoking speculation about her own presidential ambitions. This year, CPAC attendees won’t have to settle on a doppelganger, as the former Alaska governor is slated to deliver the event’s keynote address on Saturday. But, with the Michigan and Arizona primaries looming at the end of the month and Super...

    In New Hampshire, they’re still holding out hope for Sarah. Cheerleaders for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin are eagerly awaiting her keynote speech Feb. 11 at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., hoping against all odds she’ll shake up the GOP field and announce a run — for president. “If she’s going to do it, that’s when she’d do it,” said Warren Rasmussen, the volunteer New Hampshire coordinator for “If she felt there was really no one who could make a proper case for conservatism, I think she might feel compelled to run.” Sure, it’s a long...

    For the past four years, she has swayed, danced and dodged around the Conservative Political Action Conference, but, this year, Sarah Palin says she has committed to deliver the keynote address Feb. 11, the last day of the conference. ABC’s The Note recounts the rocky history between the former vice presidential candidate and CPAC’s sponsor, the American Conservative Union: She declined to keynote the event in 2011, citing a scheduling conflict. But her refusal to participate fueled speculation that she wasn’t going because of GOProud, a gay Republican group, that planned to attend. She denied that was the case. Her...

    Jihad Watch Grover Norquist aiding Iranian regime through group linked to NIAC Grover Norquist's numerous unsavory ties to jihadists and Islamic supremacists are abundantly documented in Pamela Geller's expose here. And on the House floor in October, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) said of Norquist, "Documentation shows that he has deep ties to supporters of Hamas and other terrorist organizations that are sworn enemies of the United States and our ally Israel.”  He pointed out that “around the years 2000 and 2001, Mr. Norquist’s firm represented Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was convicted two years later for his role in a terrorist...

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- After putting in a disappointing debate performance the night before, Texas Gov. Rick Perry could take comfort on Friday in the ecstatic reception he got from a large crowd of conservatives meeting here to take a gander at the presidential field. "As conservatives, we know that values and vision matter. It's not who's the slickest candidate or the smoothest debater that we need to elect," he told 500 attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference. "Remember President Clinton? Man, he could sell ice cubes to Eskimos and the next day be against ice cubes." The remark was...

    In his CPAC speech today, Rick Perry came out swinging, criticizing Romneycare vigorously and stressing that there was no connection between good debating and good governing. "As conservatives, we know that values and vision matter," Perry said. "It's not who is the slickest candidate or the smoothest debater that we need to elect. We need to elect the candidate with the best record and the best vision for this country."

    According to official letters obtained by The Daily Caller, the gay conservative group GOProud and the ultraconservative John Birch Society won’t be co-sponsoring the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in 2012. The decision was reached by a full vote of the American Conservative Union’s board of directors. The ACU organizes and hosts CPAC each year. Representatives of GOProud and the John Birch Society were notified of the decision via mail Friday afternoon. The decision comes after GOProud’s 2011 sponsorship sparked severe criticism from ACU board members, and prompted several social conservative groups to boycott the event. The controversy reached a...
