(CNN) – Real estate titan Donald Trump was all over the map Friday in his speech to conservatives, criticizing a range of Republicans from Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal to former GOP nominee Mitt Romney–and arguing that the country “is in a total mess.”

The billionaire also cooked up a plate of his own solutions for fixing the economy while speaking to the audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Among his advice: Immigration reform could be a “suicide mission” for Republicans and taking oil from Iraq could help reboot the country’s economy.

“Christie not on CPAC’s guest list”


Someone close to CPAC said Monday that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wasn’t asked to attend by organizers of the event, which will take place in mid-March at a resort outside Washington. Officially, CPAC says they’re finalizing this year’s schedule.

Other Republicans who are thought to be considering presidential bids and are on the CPAC speaking list include Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who was announced as a speaker earlier Monday.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin are also on the roster, along with former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, who was a 2012 Republican presidential candidate; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.  FULL  ARTICLE

(CNNSen. Rand Paul of Kentucky won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. Paul won with 25% of the vote and finished slightly ahead of Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. In third place was former senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania.

Nearly 3,000 votes were cast by attendees at the three-day conference held at a hotel just outside of Washington. The straw poll is considered one way to gauge where the conservative base stands on potential Republican nominees. The ballot included 23 Republicans with a national political profile as well as spots for write-ins and “undecided.”  FULL  ARTICLE

Just who can Mitch McConnell call a “Golden Girl?”

Mitch McConnell

“You are not going to believe this. Did you hear what Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell just said about one of the most respected women in American history leading the Democratic ticket in 2016?

He called it, and I quote: “A rerun of the Golden Girls.” Seriously?

Now, this is not some fringe element of the GOP talking. This is the top Republican in the U.S. Senate — who, I might add, is five years older than the woman he mocked. And we cannot let it stand.

Let’s send the message to Mitch McConnell and his allies: This is 2013, not 1913.

Let’s fight back against the GOP’s outrageous comments and policies by defeating them in this election.

Let’s do it today.”  [Quote]

Sarah Palin on Mitt Romney

Serial Adulterer, Newt Gingrich, Appears at CPAC Tomorrow et als

Newt Gingrich Roll Call Ad

Are you are sick and tired of serial adulterer Newt Gingrich preaching about the “sanctity  of marriage?” At Truth Wins Out, we think it takes breathtaking chutzpah for Newt to deny loving, committed same-sex couples the same freedom to marry that he himself has enjoyed three times.

On Thursday, TWO is placing a provocative full-page ad in the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call slamming Newt Gingrich for his stunning hypocrisy. Our ad’s headline: “Newt Gingrich: Talks Like a Preacher, Lives Like a Porn Star.”

This controversial ad will be launched just one day before Newt speaks at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington. Conservative icons like Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin, and Tony Perkins will all be attending. The ad will send a powerful message to all the self-righteous, hypocritical phonies at CPAC and expose the truth — they are not “pro-family,” just anti-gay.

Our ad closes by saying, “On behalf of loving, life-long same sex couples: Newt, you are a spectacular hypocrite. Shame on you!”

Can we count on you to stand with us? Please help TWO say “Shame on you, Newt!” with a strong voice. Help cover the cost of tomorrow’s ad.

The timing for this ad couldn’t be better. This week, Proposition 8 — California’s voter-approved ban on marriage equality — was again ruled unconstitutional in federal court. Gingrich wasted no time attacking the ruling, saying: “With today’s decision on marriage by the Ninth Circuit, and the likely appeal to the Supreme Court, more and more Americans are being exposed to the radical overreach of federal judges and their continued assault on the Judeo-Christian foundations of the United States.”

At Truth Wins Out, we believe that bigoted, self-righteous religious extremists like Newt Gingrich are the real threat to America, not loving and committed same-sex couples. His arrogant attacks cannot go unchallenged.

If you agree, I urgently you to stand with me today.

Our hard-hitting ad was expensive. Truth Wins Out needs your help to cover the cost. Please join our effort to educate America and shame the hypocrites by making a tax-deductible contribution of $5, $10, or even $25 today.
