CPAC 2011 - Gov Haley Barbour Sets Sites on 2012 - Sensible Energy Policy

I heard Gov. Barbour speak at the 2010 RPT Convention.  He learned much from his former boss Ronald Reagan about how to fire up a crowd.  Talk about issues, tell a good story or two, be humerous, but be real. Governor Barbour is real.  He has proven he can cut taxes and reduce spending while balancing a budget.

Here is a recap of his comments at CPAC 2011.

Breitbart at CPAC: shares bar trick to fluster thugs, code pink, community organized crowds

Andrew Breitbart shares trick to fluster community organized thugs, code pinkAndrew Breitbart was first speaker at CPAC on Saturday. He provided insight into the mindless operations of union and ACORN organized crowds and thugs, pointing out they are mindless, follow instructions and use identical, expensive, union-printed signs.  Breitbart shared a "bar trick" to easily fluster, frustrate and redirect these crowds, giving an example of how he instructed a crowd at a rally to go to Applebee's, a directive they obediently followed.  Breitbart discusses Code Pink's appearance at the recent Koch Foundation meeting and that Code Pink's time has passed.  He decries it is vulgar that Obama, a US President, has his fingerprints on organizations like ACORN and the organizers of these mindless crowds.  He says they're not American.

There's no question that Sarah Palin is a media star. So when a woman with Sarah Palin's iconic hairdo, dressed in a bright red skirt suit with an American flag pin, oh and don't forget the trendy thin-framed glasses, shows up in the lobby of the very hotel where the Conservative Political Action Conference is being held, there's going to be a mass frenzy!
