Cuccinelli to speak at CPAC, but not with Obama citizenship challenger

Washington Post Editors


Virginia Democrats, be still your beating hearts. Outspoken conservative Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will not be sharing a stage with an attorney who has represented those who question President Obama's American citizenship at the Conservative Political Action Conference this weekend, despite information on a publicly available schedule from CPAC.

According to an agenda on CPAC's Web site, Cuccinelli was to take part in a panel discussion Saturday entitled "Saving Freedom and Due Process from Oppressive Justice Department."
One of his fellow panelists, according to the schedule, was to be Gary Kreep, executive director of the United States Justice Foundation. Kreep is the attorney who filed suit in federal court arguing that Obama cannot legitimately serve as President of the United States because he was not born in this country.

But Cuccinelli's chief deputy attorney general Chuck James said this morning that the online schedule is incorrect. Though Cuccinelli had at one point discussed serving on the Saturday panel, he decided in the end to speak Friday morning on a panel that also includes U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), entitled "Saving Freedom: It's About Jobs, Stupid!"
James said the change was not related to Kreep's presence but instead had to do with Cuccinelli's desire to talk about jobs at the conference. "This had nothing to do with anything other than scheduling issues and that this panel is a better fit for what he's been trying to do in office," James said.

Every time Mrs. Obama appears do you include in you commentary, "This is the woman who expressed her lack of pride in her country." Why don't you beat that dead horse.

A lawyer named Kreep and here in Houston we have a Republican running for office named Clinton. Name change anyone?

I am amazed. Has everybody forgotten that Mr. Obama inherited the crisis and the two wars? He didn't start them! And i think he is a really brave man!

Hopefully, Kreep (what an apt name) will be disciplined by the Virginia Bar Association. The appropriate official in Hawaii has already verified the authenticity of the birth certificate. This is the very definition of a frivolous lawsuit which takes time and resources from more meritorious cases. The suit is totally without merit and should be dismissed on its face.

Maybe, just maybe, if 'stupid' Americans bought US MADE instead of foreign goods they would still have a job. BTW, it is the "Capitalist" that gives you your JOB! Amazing all the "SOCIALISTS" are Public Employees paid by the hard working middle class and the "Capitalists".

Oh! Apparently you have forgotten about the banks closing and the financial mess Obama inherited from the Republican Administrations. Yes, not to mention the wars that were not included in the budget and the money borrowed from China to fund those wars that we could not afford. Now that Obama is working hard to turn things around and I must mention without the “Party of No,” now its jobs, saving freedom, conservative roots, and founding fathers 1776. Where was the Tea Party and CPAC when George W. and Dick were screwing
everything up and getting us in this terrible mess that we are in today? Where were the conservatives then? Please, who
do you think you are fooling comes 2012? You could not do anything but talk when you had control and you are still blabbing mouthing this foolish talking about health care to take us off the deep end again, please!

Any economist at GMU will tell you that outsourcing is good and show you the evidence why.
Read "Naked Economics" by Wheelen (a democrat) it will open your eyes.

It has become clear to me that conservatives deny anything happened before January 20th, 2009. Nothing. Happened. Everything is the fault of Democrats and Obama. Bush is a vaporous substance, Cheney never ever acted treasonously, and the economy was just cookies and cream before January 20th, 2009. Conservatives abhor anyone talking about Bush, because they simply want to bash Obama. So, it is much simpler to deny existence before January 20th, 2009 than it is to deal with reality. It's frighteningly similar to the conservative ideology, that God created the earth 2,000 years ago. Deny, deny, deny.

Ah ja! Ich sehe, dass die Neo Schwindel ramped nach oben erhalten, in ihren rassistischen Wortschwall zu gehen, der nicht wirklich ein rassistischer Wortschwall ist, gemäß ihnen. Das Wrackteile, das von George W. Bush verlassen wird, und Dick Cheney ist nicht geschehen? Ihre einzige Zuflucht ist zu Couch ihrem Widerstand in vorsichtig formuliertem Rassismus-nicht Rassismus. Lassen Sie niemanden Sie täuschen. Dies handelt von OBama ist ein Dunkelhäutiger und sonst nichts. Wir kennen dies zu sein, so weil wir Nazis sind!! Erhalten Sie die gute Arbeit Amerika aufrecht! Die Republikaner folgen in unseren Schritten!!
