Trump at CPAC: “By The Way, Ron Paul Can’t Get Elected”

The Donald’s appearance at CPAC, today, was somewhat of a surprise -and I have to say, he gave a pretty decent, if uneven speech.

You certainly can’t accuse the guy of trying to ingratiate himself to the audience:

Those boos were coming from the many young people in attendance  who are Ron Paul fans.

A longer video from that portion of Trump’s speech can be viewed at RCP.

CPAC Day One

I took a 6:00 a.m. flight out of Kansas City, and arrived in DC at around 9:30 – just in time to miss Michele Bachmann’s speech. It took me awhile to get set up in the Bloggers lounge because the internet is really slow. It’s even more crowded than last year, and there are some big names among us.

Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller

Jeff Dunetz  (Yid With Lid) and Jim Hoft (Gateway Pundit)

Duane Lester, All American Blogger

Lee Doren and ND.

Jim Hoft confronted the gorilla in the room at the Citizens United bloggers lunch room.

Mitch McConnell

Newt Gingrich

Rick Santorum

Victoria Jackson visited the bloggers lounge, and graciously took pictures with bloggers. She was selling, “There’ a Communist in the White House tee shirts” in Spanish and English.
