While the Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, and Ron Paul supporters are here in force, the Romney people are keeping a very low key. Romney, along with Santorum and Gingrich, are scheduled to speak on February 10.
Senator Rand Paul is speaking later on February 9 on behalf of his father who passed up attending CPAC to remain on the campaign trail.
Attendees from Texas appear to be uniformly pro-Santorum. However, there is a general feeling among CPAC die-hards that Santorum and Gingrich will split the Texas vote.
One neocon celebrity who drew very few fans for his book signing was former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Rumsfeld was hawking his book, Known and Unknown: A Memoir.
Former GOP presidential candidate and self-proclaimed math expert ("9-9-9") Herman Cain, speaking before CPAC on February 9, appears to have had an addition problem.
Cain began his speech by citing British King George III's arrogance toward the colonies, which prompted the first stirrings of the American revolution in 1773. Cain then said, "two years later, in 1782," America won its war for independence. Cain continued his speech by calling liberals "stupid."
Cain also prided himself for having never used a TelePrompter. Perhaps he should reconsider.
