Interviews From Inside and Outside of CPAC

Posted: Feb 12, 2012 9:03 AM

As Townhall readers are well aware, we spent the last three days at CPAC, talking to conservative icons, speaking on panels and promoting Townhall material. There are a lot of friendly faces at the annual conference, but this time the Occupy folks were just outside the hotel to greet us as well. Lucy Steigerwald at Reason talked to several of them. Not surprisingly they support Obama and hate Republicans, in spite of his statist approach to governing that reminds us of George Bush's worst policies on steroids. (Questions about his support for the bailouts was met with insistance that it was the Republicans fault.) Ms. Steigerwald also challenged some CPAC attendees to explain why their candidates of choice supported various big government programs.
