CPAC 2012 Day One

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) kicked off today in Washington DC, with conservatives from all over the country coming together to hear many different leaders in the movement, and several lawmakers at the state and national level.

This was my perch in Blogger's Row.

Blogger's Row.

Peter aka "DaTechGuy" known for his Fedoras and cannolis.

Among those who spoke today were Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who gave a really great speech.

Senator Jim DeMint came by and spoke to the bloggers. One of the topics asked was about the Obama Regime's current war on freedom of religion, specifically the Catholic Church being forced, under Obamacare, to hand out contraception even though it violates their beliefs.

Former GOP Presidential candidate and current Texas Governor Rick Perry came by and also spoke about the Regime's war on organized religion, as well as energy and border issues.

It's a shame that Gov. Perry wasn't able to maintain his standing in the polls, as he clearly was one who was ahead of the curve in illustrating what a threat the Obama Regime is to individual liberty and religious liberty.

Michele Bachmann spoke today on the foreign policy failures of the Obama Regime, and is pictured here doing an on-camera interview afterwards.

Bloggers also attended an event hosted by Citzens United, to unveil an upcoming film that exposes the Occupy movement and the people behind it. As the program started, Andrew Breitbart, filmmaker Steven Bannon, and Citizens United President David Bossie arrived wearing "Anonymous" masks.  More on this in a separate post.

Tomorrow, three of the four Republican Presidential contenders (Willard Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich) will speak. Tomorrow is also the day that Democrat allied labor unions and Occupy squatters planned protests. I did not notice any squatters today, but did see a number of security and police present.

Stay tuned for more the next couple of days.

Looks like a great day, though we've had trouble picking up decent streaming. Thanks for the report!

Loved Bachmann! God, she tore the hide off Obama. It's too bad the American people weren't given the opportunity to see her in this light.

Have a great time and look out for #Occupy.
