It seemed as if I'd have to settle for the overflow room, but the moment the first bass notes of the Pretenders "My City Was Gone" played, the doors opened and a few of us were let in. The energy in that room was higher than any rock concert I've ever been to.
It was an enthusiastic, energetic, standing room only crowd in the Regency Ballroom who heard Rush speak.
The main theme from Rush was how what has made this nation great, our freedom, is under assault from within. The concept of unlimited potential and achievement in individuals is under assault and punished by liberal Democrats.
Rush concluded with expanding on the remark which has the liberal media in a tizzy, that he wants Obama to fail, reminding us that liberals hoped for President Bush's failure and for our military to fail, noting in particular "Dingy" Harry Reid stating the "war is lost."
Why shouldn't we want Obama to fail? His plans are not in the best interest of the nation.
From the response to Rush's speech and the record breaking attendance at CPAC this year (around 9,000 is what I heard), don't anyone tell you that conservatism is dead.
