WHO IS THE ONE CONSERVATIVE THAT RUSH LIMBAUGH SAYS HAS EVERY DEMOCRAT ‘SCARED TO DEATH’?

 

 

 

 

 

” Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday said Dr. Ben Carson has the entire Democratic Party “scared to death” for several reasons.

“He is able to articulate and explain conservatism in a way that is persuasive, without raising his voice at all,” Limbaugh said. It sounds like your dad talking to you, not your dad, your best buddy talking to you.”

Conservative Bloggers Say Facebook Selectively Enforcing Non-Existent Rules

 

 

” On Sunday, two conservative bloggers accused Facebook of selectively enforcing rules that are either non-existent or not made known to the millions of people who use the site. Diane Sori, a Florida-based conservative who blogs at the Patriot Factor, and Craig Andresen of the National Patriot basically argued that Facebook is arbitrarily punishing conservatives using non-existent policies in order to silence criticism of Barack Obama.

The accusations stem from an incident involving the Facebook page “Barracuda Brigade for Our American Girl! 2012,” a community fan page supporting Sarah Palin.”

 

 

    Hell , this is no surprise … even some WordPress blogging tools exhibit a leftward slant . Zemanta and the recommended tags algorithms often seem prejudicial towards the statist mindset if you ask me .

Rand Paul: Wins Day One of CPAC, Helping Rethink The War On Terror

 

 

” Rand Paul, post-filibuster, strides mightily atop the world of young-skewing conservative activism yesterday at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

“That filibuster was the best move by a politician I’ve ever seen,” a high school senior from Virginia with a swept bowl-cut (who has seen a lot of moves in his time) exclaimed when asked about his sticker.

When Paul himself took the stage inside, the audience roared in approbation and many stood for the duration of the speech to physically show their support. Paul played the hits right off the back, opening with a joke about his now iconic filibuster. “I was told I get 10 measly minutes, but I came prepared with 13 hours’ worth of material!” he said while holding up a stack of black binders. “Don’t drone me, bro!” a young man yelled approvingly from the crowd.

Paul offered a plea for a revamp. “The Republican Party has to change,” Paul said. It especially needs to appeal to young people by expanding its conception of limited government beyond taxes and regulation to things like drug policy, technology, and civil liberties, he explained, because the “Facebook generation” is the “core of the ‘leave me alone’ coalition.” “

 

 

 

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: Chris Christie’s Not Invited This Year

 

 

 

” All they’re doing here, whether they realize it or not, is throwing him into the briar patch. Christie was never going to run as the conservative choice in 2016 and lord knows he’s not going to run as a conservative to get reelected in New Jersey. That’s how Democrats will try to paint him, of course, but now he has fresh evidence to rebut the charge — he’s unwelcome at the preeminent gathering of American conservatives. CPAC’s unwittingly helping him burnish his brand as the country’s most formidable centrist Republican. Expect him to gets lots of mileage out of it in interviews over the next month.

Maybe Netroots Nation will snap him up for this year’s gala instead. Exit question: Was last night’s photo op with FLOTUS the last straw? ”

 

   While we acknowledge the fact that there have been and will be others who are even less conservative than Christie invited to attend CPAC , we feel that any “republican” that says ” I agree with Andrew Cuomo on probably 98% of the issues” does not belong anywhere near the podium of any conservative gathering .
