Sarah Palin Re-Writes Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs & Ham at CPAC: “I Do Not Like This Uncle Sam, I Do Not Like His Health Care Scam”
Sarah Palin wows them at CPAC with her on version of Green Eggs and Ham, in honor of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (TX-R) reading of the Dr. Seuss classic during his filibuster last year, … “I Do Not Like This Uncle Sam, I Do Not Like His Health Care Scam”
“I do not like this Uncle Sam. I do not like his health care scam. I do not like — oh, just you wait — I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie and cook the books. I do not like when Congress steals, I do not like their crony deals. I do not like this spying, man, I do not like, ‘Oh, Yes we can.’ I do not like this spending spree, we’re smart, we know there’s nothing free. I do not like reporters’ smug replies when I complain about their lies. I do not like this kind of hope, and we won’t take it, nope, nope, nope.”
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) Wins CPAC Presidential Straw Poll in a Landslide … 2nd Sen. Ted Cuz (TX), 3rd Ben Carson
Look for Democrats and their liberal MSM minions to go after the rising new anti-establishment star of the Conservative movement, Rand Paul.
Rand Paul wins the presidential straw poll at CPAC going away. Paul received 31% of the vote, while his fellow anti-establishment Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz finished in second place with 11%. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who came to prominence when he let America and Barack Obama know what he felt about Obamacare at the 2013 National Prayers Breakfast, finished third with 9%. Paul is a very dangerous and formidable opponent for Democrats as he energizes the GOP base and brings in the young and libertarian vote.
Rand Paul handily won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, one gauge of the Republican base’s mood less than two years before the 2016 primary season kicks off.
The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum tied for fifth place, with 7 percent.
Um, Chris Christie who? The Republican that the media just drools over, including Fox News, finished distant 4th.
- Sen. Rand Paul – KY (31%) – Although I do not agree with all of his policies, Paul is a Conservative and breath of fresh air from the power-elite GOP establishment.
- Sen. Ted Cruz – TX (11%) – A Conservative rock star, who if he can run, would make a great President and follow the US Constitution.
- Neurosurgeon Ben Carson (9%) – From out of nowhere Carson has taken the Conservatives by storm. I would vote for Ben in a heartbeat.
- Gov. Chris Cristie – NJ (8%) – RINO has no chance of winning GOP primary if Republicans ever want to be anything more than Democrat-light.
- Gov. Scott Walker – WI (7%) – A solid GOP governor who will one day be a president.
- Former Sen Rick Santorum – PA (7%)
- Sen. Marco Rubio – FL (6%) – His stance on immigration amnesty has made Rubio toast with the base.
- Rep. Paul Ryan – WI (3%) – The base not enamored with establishment Republican and 2012 VP nominee.
- Gov. Rick Perry – TX (3%) – His performance in the 2012 GOP primaries may be too much to overcome.
Four others pulled 2%: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
While other addresses at this year’s CPAC focused on specific policies and red-meat issues like gay marriage and ObamaCare, Paul spoke in broad metaphorical terms of the need to “stand together for liberty.”
“It isn’t good enough to pick the lesser of two evils,” he said. “We must elect men of principle and conviction and action who will lead us back to greatness. There is a great and tumultuous battle underway, not for the future of the Republican Party, but for the future of the country.”
Paul framed the libertarian-ideas that have gained prominence within the party in recent years in historical terms, positioning his values as descending from the nation’s Founding Fathers. Paul name-dropped foundational American thinkers ranging from Daniel Webster to John Adams, James Madison to Montesquieu, but also quoted Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters.
One of his biggest applause lines seemed specifically geared toward the digital generation that has special resonance in the wake of the ongoing debate over privacy and NSA surveillance.
“I believe what you do on your cellphone is none of their damn business,” he said, to extended cheers from the crowd.
Rand Paul released the following statement touting his win:
“The fight for liberty continues, and we must continue to stand up and say: We’re free and no one, no matter how well-intentioned, will take our freedoms from us,” he said. “Together we will stand up for the Constitution. Together we will fight for what is right. Thank you, and onwards to victory.
Former President Jimmy Carter May not be Dead, But his Presidency Was … Donald Trump Makes Reference at CPAC to the “Late, Great Jimmy Carter” … I’m Not Dead Yet!!! (VIDEO)
Former President Jimmy Carter needs to borrow a line from Monty Python and the Holy Grail … I’m Not Dead Yet!!!
It would appear that Donald Trump was a bit premature in announcing the death of “the late, great Jimmy Carter (VIDEO).” Yesterday at CPAC, The Donald compared the Obama presidency to that of the disastrous, failed presidency of Jimmy Carter. Trump stated that Obama’s job approval numbers at 38% were now in Jimmy Carter territory and that he never thought he would see another presidency like the late, great Jimmy Carter. Oops. Make no mistake, Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States has not passed away. However, Carter’s presidency was.
“We’re getting into Jimmy Carter territory, and I never thought I’d see anything like that again,” he said as the audience chuckled. “I lived through that time and it was not a good time and we’re pretty close – I think maybe by next month we will have surpassed the late, great Jimmy Carter.”
With Barack Obama’s failed foreign and domestic policies and adverse impact on America, it would look like from his falling polling number, Obama’s presidency is dead as well.
Mavericky Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) apologized for his ‘wacko birds’ comment that he made toward Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz for their outspoken brand of politicking on the Hill. The long time Arizona senator and failed GOP Presidential candidate took exception to the fact that he has been passed by the young Turks. What McCain might finally be realizing is that Paul and Cruz represent a breath of fresh air for the GOP Senate and what the GOP base wants to embrace, not Democrat light. During CPAC 2013, Rand Paul took the opportunity to slap back at McCain and said “the GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.” Whether McCain’s apology was sincere, who knows. However, one thing is for certain … the balance of power is being to shift in the GOP Senate and is moving away from the failed establishment senators and more toward the new brand of Republican Senators like Rand Paul (KY), Ted Cruz (TX), Marco Rubio (FL), Jeff Flake (AZ) and Pat Tommey (PA).
Sen. John McCain is apologizing for calling Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz “wacko birds” and says he respects what his Senate colleagues stand for.
“[In] an interview I said that Sen. Cruz and Sen. Paul were ‘wacko birds.’ That was inappropriate and I apologize to them for saying that, and I respect them both. I respect what they stand for and what they believe in. They both made an impact out here in the United States Senate,” McCain (R-Ariz.) said on Fox News on Friday.
McCain at some point best realize that his days are behind him and that he is on the wrong side of the future of the Republican party. Of he wants to make such criticisms he might as well pull an Arlen Specter or Charlie Crist and switch parties.
Two Young GOP Superstars Finish One, Two … Rand Paul wins CPAC 2013 Straw Poll with 25%, Marco Rubio Places Second at 23%
THIS TIME THE CPAC STRAW POLL JUST MIGHT HAVE CORRECTLY PICKED THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES …
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul won the CPAC 2013 straw poll with 25% of the vote. Florida Senator Marco Rubio finished a close second at 23%. Nearly 3,000 votes were cast by attendees at the three day conference held at a hotel just outside of Washington, DC in which the straw poll is considered one way to gauge where the conservative base stands on potential Republican nominees. Rand Paul had earlier wowed the crowd at CPAC.
Marco Rubio, lft. – Rand Paul, rt.
Although it is far too premature to determine a front runner for the GOP for the 2016 Presidential election, what is apparent is that the two young Turk superstars of the Republican party were at the forefront of this straw poll and have conservatives support. Sen. Rand Paul became a conservative hero with his recent 13 hour filibuster where he took Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama head on with the “Drone” issue. Rand Paul make Holder and Obama blink. Although a CPAC straw poll does not determine an eventual GOP presidential nominee, what makes this much, much different is that the two straw poll winners, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, are both cross-over candidates which the LEFT and the MSM are going to have a hard time calling right-wing extremists.
Sen. Rand Paul won the 2013 Washington Times-CPAC presidential preference straw poll Saturday, and Sen. Marco Rubio was a close second, easily outdistancing the rest of the field and signaling the rise of a new generation of conservative leaders who will take the Republican Party into the 2016 election.
Mr. Paul won 25 percent of the vote, and Mr. Rubio collected 23 percent. Former Sen. Rick Santorum was third with just 8 percent, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — who was not invited to speak at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference — was next with 7 percent, and Rep. Paul D. Ryan, the GOP’s vice presidential nominee last year, was fifth with 6 percent
The full poll results can be found here:
Paul — 25
Rubio – 23
Santorum – 8
Christie – 7
Paul Ryan – 6
Scott Walker – 5
Ben Carson – 4
Ted Cruz – 4
Bobby Jindal – 3
Sarah Palin – 3
Other – 14
Undecided – 1
A note to the 8% who voted for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was not invited to speak at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference, he is no conservative and the GOP does not need another RINO running for office in the line of other failed GOP candidates like John McCain and Mitt Romney. The GOP needs to find what it stands for and a messenger to the people who can relay that message to We the People.
