Is Ted Kennedy Drunk on Tequila?

In keeping with his support of illegal immigrants, Ted Kennedy drank an unknown amount of tequila and called a Spanish-language radio show. He then sang a song...IN SPANISH! He signed off by saying he's "not going to let down" the illegal immigrants. Let's just hope he wasn't calling in while driving near Chappaquiddick.

Not only did the Rivier College Republicans meet and hear top conservative speakers at CPAC and take part in interesting workshops, but some members were also interviewed by NBC and FOX News. The Rivier College Republicans also received a private tour of the Capitol Building and were personally escorted to the CPAC conference. The Rivier College Republicans also met and had their photos taken with Senator John Sununu. Visiting Washington, D.C. and attending CPAC gave the Rivier College Republicans many experiences that most people may never have. The future is bright for the Rivier College Republicans.

CPAC Photos and Hearing President Bush

President George W. Bush spoke this morning at CPAC. He delivered a powerfully stirring speech that highlighted the ability of the country and the President to stand their ground during difficult times and among liberal criticism of so-called "experts.". He urged Congress to pass the intelligence surveillance program that expires next week, saying that the threat of Al-Qaeda "will not expire next week." President Bush stated that the U.S.A. does not need permission from the world,, or Code Pink to protect its interests. He went on to state how his tax cuts, strategy in Iraq, and improvements of education has helped make the country a better place to live. He spoke before a packed room, and people gave him a very, very warm reception. A couple peopled shouted "We love you, George!" One student would always say "Yay...[insert point President Bush was trying to make]" For instance, President Bush said we must protect liberty, and this student said, "Yay, liberty!" Students cheered heavily for President Bush as he outlined the accomplishments of his administration. Here are some photos from CPAC.

Yay, blog!

Romney Concedes, McCain Criticized

Political news is swirling here at CPAC. Mitt Romney has decided to end his campaign for president. He said that if he continued his pursuit of the White House, then it would be likely that Mrs. Bill Clinton or Obama would win the presidency. He doesn't want to divide the party and has decided that dropping out would give the best chance of putting a Republican in the White House.

McCain was heavily criticized today at the Omni Shoreham, where CPAC is taking place. People held signs that read, "Republicans Against McCain" and "Fight McCain Amnesty," which refers to McCain's so-called liberal plan for allowing illegal immigrants to become citizens and find work. Pictures and more political news will come later as I'm blogging live from CPAC.
