Good Saturday morning.  I’m having a great week, but man it is exhausting.  I’m doing some reporting for ViralRead so here are the posts I’ve done so far.

Cantor Delivers Heavy Steak Dinner on Friday Afternoon at #CPAC2013

Anyone looking for a quick sugar pick-me-up at the end of a long day at CPAC today would have been disappointed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.  He instead delivered a meat-packed meal with mashed potatoes and gravy for those who love School Choice and the economy.

#CPAC2013: Conservatives ‘Stand With Rand’ With Enthusiasm

Buzz about the 2016 Republican Presidential nomination race heated up this afternoon at CPAC when Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) followed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on the main stage.

Paul’s supporters were in full force and handing out “Stand With Rand” lapel stickers as CPAC attendees poured into the main ballroom.  Excitement for Paul is at a peak following his 13-hour filibuster on the U.S. Senate floor last week against the Obama Administration’s drone policy.

Sen. Paul came right out of the gate by joking that he only had ”ten measly minutes” at CPAC, but he brought 13 hours of information, just in case. Paul said he had a message for the President last week and today: “No one person gets to decide the law… No one person gets to decide your guilt or innocence.  My question was about whether Presidential power has limits.”

Again…. read it all!

  1. My pick is Dr. Ben Carson. I like the idea of a president who is not of the establishment. By that so not mean a RINO but those who have been schooled in politicraft. He is from the private sector and sees solutions through the prism of common sense. I am more attracted to candidates from the outside. That is why in 2008 my first choice was Donald Trump, then when he dropped out I went with Hermain Cain. Career politicians seem to become short sighted, that is why Dianne Feinstein needed the refresher course from Senator Ted Cruz.

  2. Sen. Marco Rubio was the big loser at CPAC in my considerations. His “…it doesn’t make be a bigot.“-comment both offended me since he didn’t offer an considered-alternative…and he sounded like he was whining. If he had supported “civil unions” or some other reasonable 21st-cenbtury option I might have agreed with him then, but he just appeared to dismiss us as people…and threw us under the GOP bus.

    I thought he was a “possible”, but now he’s dead-to-me.

    I’m not a gay marriage fanatic. I’ve always thought that Federally-recognized civil unions-truly-equivalent-to-marriage was a viable path that might take some time. BUT, I don’t like being dismissed out-of-hand.
