Might be a stretch to call him a blogger but considering the number of bloggers currently in his room at 2;34 a.m. on Saturday morning as I write this post he becomes a blogger by osmosis.

the rest of the field guide can be found here.

Donald Trump at the podium. It was worth coming to CPAC just to see someone willing to say that out loud. It was the emperor has no clothes moment of CPAC

some other quotes from Trump:

“Leaders from China and Mexico can’t believe what they are getting away with. The view our leadership as weak and ineffective.”

“Most successful people don’t want to be scrutinized or abused”

Update: Trump has decided he doesn’t want to talk to bloggers row. Yup he’s not afraid of tough questions.

CPAC afternoon update

Internet has been REALLY? spotty and has hampered blogging, but here is some info.

Briefly visited the vendor area an awful lot of enthusiastic people there with a lot to say.

On the Michelle Bachmann speech there were some awesome quotes:

“We are the indispensable nation of the world”

“If the president wanted to prove he was Ronald Reagan he could sign onto a balanced budget Amendment. ”

Her speech was very well received and will be totally ignored by the MSM

Was at the Citizen’s united lunch which was great not only because it was the first good meal I’ve had in days but some excellent films and commercials.

Asked Matt Bossie about keeping the GOP honest, he quoted Reagan “Trust but verify”

Update: Pictures we got pictures!

There was a bit of a backup at the registration table as there was apparently a different list for CPAC bloggers than regular registration (sadly Tommy Christopher had a pre-set credential and I did not) but once Tabatha Hale got here all was cleared up. (Is there a young lady who works harder than her?)

The bloggers lounge is slowly filling.

Midnight Blue is just settling down next to me and Katy of Katy’s conservative corner is near her:

The internet has been very spotty I’m trying to upload video and photos and everything freezes.

Michelle Bachmann spoke early. I guarantee you that Chris Matthews will complain that the debt didn’t start in 1776 (actually the debt began on independence once we started borrowing money) I’m sure that they will avoid showing the entire speech. It’s very hard to paint her as a “balloonhead” if people actually hear her talk
