The Tea Party Was Alive And Well This Week At CPAC

 

 

 

 

” The Tea Party was alive and well at CPAC in Washington, D.C., this past week.

  It was both refreshing and encouraging to witness in-person thousands of young conservatives gathering at CPAC to deliver to the Republican Party establishment that we are conservatives first and GOP supporters only when the GOP embraces conservative principles.”

 

 

The good doctor writes on Ted Cruz …

 

 

How did you like President Bob Dole, President John McCain, and President Mitt Romney?” Sen. Ted Cruz asked the CPAC audience. “When you don’t stand up for principle, the Democrats celebrate.”

  Cruz’s point was clear: “Me-too” establishment GOP presidential cannot win by trying to create a “Big Tent” Republican Party that echoes the Democrats in wanting big government and tolerating unreasonable taxes by offering programs like “Romney-care” that are all-too-much like what the Democrats imagine in their expanding version of a social welfare state.

“ We need to audit the Federal Reserve that is driving up the cost of living for all Americans and fueling the power of petro-tyrants like Putin,” Cruz insisted.”

 

 

And Rand Paul …

 

 

” Sen. Rand Paul, who won the CPAC presidential poll for a second year in a row, rocked CPAC with a speech openly directed against the GOP establishment.

“ I’m not talking about electing Republicans,” Paul insisted. “I’m talking about electing lovers of liberty,” he continued.

“ There is a great and tumultuous battle underway, not for the future of the GOP, but for the future of the country.”

“ Will we bold in our convictions or will we be sunshine patriots that cower in the truth and power of our message?” Paul asked.”

 

 

And of course , Sarah Palin and her Dr Seuss remix …

 

 

” Sarah Palin re-wrote the Dr. Seuss classic, Green Eggs and Ham, with a humorous version of what could constitute the Tea Party criticism of President Barack Obama:

“I do not like this Uncle Sam,

I do not like his health care scam.

I do not like these dirty crooks

or how they lie and cook the books.

I do not like when Congress steals,

I do not like their crony deals.

I do not like this spying, man.

I do not like, ‘Oh, yes, we can.’

I do not like this spending spree,

we’re smart, we know nothing’s free.

I do not like reporters’ smug replies

when I complain about their lies.

I do not like this kind of hope

and we won’t take it, nope, nope, nope.” “

Perry: ‘Time For A Little Rebellion’

 

 

” Texas governor Rick Perry broke through as a serious presidential hopeful Friday with a spirited speech to a cheering crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

  Perry brought the audience to its feet with a call to bring the successful conservative policies of red state governors to the national level.

  Perry took jabs at targets including New York, California, and the Department of Education, noting that common-sense governance has been absent not only from blue states but from Washington, D.C.

It’s time for a little rebellion on the battlefield of ideas,” the Texas governor said, paraphrasing Thomas Jefferson.

  While left-leaning states face worsening economies, Perry pointed to the progress in Republican-led states such as South Carolina, Louisiana, Wisconsin, and Florida.”
