Oh my: Marco Rubio named keynote speaker at CPAC

posted at 6:51 pm on November 12, 2009 by Allahpundit

An easy pick in one sense, a provocative choice in another.

“We chose Rubio because he is an upcoming leader. He is someone that a lot of people are excited about,” De Pasquale told POLITICO. “His name keeps getting brought up and we decided that he would be a good keynote for 2010.”

The keynote speaker gets the coveted 10 a.m. speaking slot that kicks off the conference on Thursday and gets a longer block of time than other CPAC speakers. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) got the slot last year.

Rubio Communications Director Alex Burgos said that “Marco Rubio is honored by the invitation and opportunity. He looks forward to sharing his vision of why mainstream conservative Republicans are needed in Washington more than ever.”

It’s an easy pick because there’s no pol in America aside from Sarahcuda whom the base is more excited about, and he needs this exposure a lot more than she does. It’s essentially a huge, free advertisement for his Senate campaign with all the earned media that goes along with that. And of course it’s a great advertisement for conservatives too: He’s young, charismatic, and a minority, which makes him almost the polar opposite of the standard media caricature of right-wingers. Even so, it’s not often that you find CPAC pitted against the Republican establishment, but given the NRSC’s endorsement of Crist in the primary, that’s exactly what’s happening here. This isn’t as big a victory for tea partiers as a Doug Hoffman win would have been but it’s still big. Especially now that the NY-23 race is history and Crist has assumed the role of tea-party public enemy number one.

Speaking of conservative confabs, who’s going to Ace’s “Hmmmmmmm” extravaganza? I hear through the grapevine that the boss might be interested…

I’m amazed at the amount of hate coming from some of you guys. The “FU GOP!” attitude isn’t productive. If that’s all youre going to bring to the table, stay away. I’m just as concerned about the lack of real conservatism in our party, but some of you don’t seem to understand how to go about achieving it. Hate doesn’t benefit the cause. I understand you’re frustrated, but channel it in a different way. Getting the GOP back to true conservatism will take time, like it or not. We can’t snap our fingers and get our way. It doesn’t work like that. Primaries will be where our battle is won. It’s not a “civil war” if we take advantage of primaries. It’s called “democracy”. Glad to see Rubio getting some well needed limelight.

If there’s no overlap, I’ve got plenty of Delta miles and Marriott points, leaving ample fundage for, er, Vegas-like activities.

Rubio still has rocky uphill battle. Some of the old guard republican insiders here in FL are not only backing Crist but are digging up anything they can on Rubio. And unfortunately old guard = old money. I don’t know what Rubio campaign funds are but hopefully CPAC gives him the boost.
-
Sad to say but money gets people elected, last year case in point. Obama, et al spent how much?
Rubio may have a great message but if the people can’t hear him… well, the Tea Party gets tea bagged!

the_nile on November 12, 2009 at 7:10 PM

Unfortunately, we’ll never be able to get all of the RINOs out of the party. It’ll be extremely difficult to get a Rubio in Maine, right? If someone honestly believes that is possible, that’s incredibly naive. Lets face it – not every American is truly conservative, and not every republican is “conservative first, republican second” like most of us.

The Dede issue can be rehashed over and over again. I think the way that Conservatives went about supporting Hoffman was incorrect. I’m pretty opposed to Members of Congress not living in the districts they represent, but the law is the law so be it. That being said, Dede was the wrong choice from the beginning, but spoiling the election didn’t push the Conservative cause any further. I would have preferred Hoffman step aside and handed the victory to Dede with the warning that he would most likely run against her in the primary unless she behaved like a Conservative (and we know she wouldn’t have). I believe that would have taught the local GOP a REAL lesson whereas now, I’m pretty certain they’re walking around with giant chips on their shoulder and may do something similar in the future just out of spite. Again, the FU GOP plan won’t be effective. You just have to understand how the game is played.

That being said, now is the time Hoffman should announce he’s going to run as a REPUBLICAN. Become the immediate front runner so the local GOP has no half ass excuse for nominating someone else.

Until there’s a litmus test to decide who is a RINO and who isn’t, I think it’s fair to say that my original point stands.

Take, for example, the defunding of ACORN. I’ve done my research, and my opinion is that it is, in fact, unconstitutional. However, I also strongly support defunding those groups. Therefore, I am breaking Rule No. 1 of the “How to be a Conservative” handbook which is simply to obey the Constitution. Does that mean I’m a RINO? Does that mean every Republican in Congress that voted to defund ACORN is a RINO?

I remember the outrage from the Conservative base and Tea Party folks against the Congressmen that voted in favor of the bill to limit executive bonus compensations of those companies receiving bailout money, but I don’t hear the outrage over defunding ACORN.

Catch my drift?

This is stupid. I knew the “base” rabble would get fooled by Rubio’s BS. But the fact that he has suckered the crowd at CPAC and Ed, that is just depressing.

He is cool whip, it tastes good but there is no substance.

Crist can keynote the RPAC.

He’s young, charismatic, and a minority, which makes him almost the polar opposite of the standard media caricature of right-wingers.

Sounds like another empty suit I know.
