It seems that the Right’s efforts to unify in opposition to President Obama and the Democratic Congress are continuing … with yet another coalition/declaration to be unveiled next week at CPAC:
They’re calling it “The Mount Vernon Statement”: a group of leaders of conservative groups will gather in Washington, DC on the eve of the yearly national Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), and sign a pact–a “definitive statement,” as it’s being billed, defining the principles of the conservative movement.
“A Who’s Who of the conservative movement’s leaders will unveil and sign the Mount Vernon Statement: a document defining the movement’s principles, beliefs and values in light of the challenges facing the country and the need for Constitutional Conservatism since the Obama administration came to power,” CRC Public Relations says in a press release announcing the solemn document.
Some key conservative luminaries will be in attendance at the Collingwood Library and Museum in Alexandria, VA (an original part of George Washington’s Mount Vernon properties): Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, David Keene of the American Conservative Union, former Reagan policy adviser Kenneth T. Cribb, Kenneth Blackwell of Coalition for a Conservative Majority, and Federalist Society co-founder David McIntosh.
Gee, do you think it’ll focus on things like cutting taxes, shrinking government, killing terrorists, opposing gay rights, and outlawing abortion?
Do they want me to write it for them? Because I am pretty sure that I could.
