    Time for the neocons and social nannies to GTFO and give way to the old school.

    And Rumsfeld won the "Defender of the Constitution" award.

    I saw his speech. It's his typical boilerplate rant against the Fed and the Military. Although I agree with perhaps 60% of it..he's still the crazy uncle in the attic.

    The same CPAC that was filled with Neocon and Social Nannie speakers?

    The Republicans' CPAC Misfire - The Daily Beast

    While it would be nice if the GOP was moving away from being run by Neocons and Social Conservatives, it doesn't seem to be happening. Ron Paul has won straw polls in the past, and while it's nice, it never does translate to anything. I rather see the GOP nominate Gary Johnson anyway.

    Yes with that combination it tells any intelligent thinking person all they need to know about CPAC :D

    Because they are extreme opposites. A neocon and a libertarian.

    And with any luck, the neocons will haul their poseur asses back to the Democrat Party, where they belong.

    So, you mean the way for the Republican party to take power is to kick everyone who doesn't toe the ONE, TRUE CONSERVATISM line out?
