CPAC has been heavily criticized in recent years by conservative activists for heavily featuring establishment stalwarts such as Mitch McConnell, Jeb Bush, John Boehner, and Paul Ryan.
“I have been a lifelong movement conservative.”, Malkin said. “Not a ‘compassionate conservative’, not a reform conservative. Not a fill-in-the-blank modifier, cooked up by D.C. elites who think their job is to re-brand plain old fashioned, unapologetic conservatism.” Malkin’s words could have been directed more toward conference organizers than the assembled audience.
“The state of the republican party is not sound. The republican party has been undergoing slow-motion hari-kari for decades now.”
