Rand Paul, Rubio Poke At Their Own Party

 

 

 

 

” “The GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered,” Paul told the Conservative Political Action Conference just outside Washington.

Paul and Marco Rubio, Republican senators being measured as 2016 presidential possibilities, gave campaign-style speeches at the annual conservative gathering: soaring rhetoric and a quick rundown of policy positions. Paul attacked wasteful government spending, advocated a flat tax and suggested eliminating the Department of Education. He appealed to young voters – a big part of the CPAC audience – calling them “the core of the ‘leave me alone’ coalition.”

“If we’re going to have a Republican Party that can win, liberty needs to be the backbone of the GOP,” he said. “We need a Republican Party that shows up on the South Side of Chicago and shouts at the top of our lungs … ‘The GOP is the ticket to the middle class.'”

 

 

 

 

 

CPAC Turns Away Pamela Geller

 

” For the last four years, Pamela Geller of AtlasShrugs.com and the American Freedom Defense Initiative have held events at CPAC featuring guests she invites to discuss the influence of Islamism on America. But this year, the American Conservative Union (ACU) has no room for Geller or her message.

In years past, the events were standing room only thanks to their popularity, but that apparently was not enough to counter pressure brought to bear from somewhere to exclude Geller’s message.”
