Marco Rubio called this November mid term elections "a referendum on our very identity as our nation," yesterday in giving the opening keynote address at the annual Conservative Policy Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington.
The Florida GOP Senate candidate reportedly "wowed" the thousands at the annual conservative enclave, as he joined up with a number of Republican heavy hitters in a strong dose of Obama bashing that will surely continue though tomorrow night.
On the agenda today includes possible 2012 presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty from Minnesota, Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, and Anne Coulter, among others, and climaxes Saturday afternoon with a keynote address from Glenn Beck.
You might have heard or read that Dick Cheney made a quick cameo yesterday, where the man who once claimed that "deficits don't matter" brought down the house when he said Barack Obama would not be re-elected in 2012.
Also speaking yesterday is my bet for the GOP nomination in 2012, Mitt Romney, who gave what the Daily Beast's Jon Avalon wrote was a "full frontal assault" on the President. Romney also gave props to George W. Bush, which tells you how upside down the american narrative is about Obama right now.
You can check out the fun all weekend on C-SPAN.
