Laura Ingraham hosted Al Cardenas of the American Conservative Union on CPAC.
Cardenas said there are big things to complain about, not small. He said CPAC got fired up with Ronald Reagan getting the flame of conservatism going, especially among the young.
Ingraham asked about young people being more liberal on social issues and wondered why GOProud wasn't invited to CPAC. He said GOProud was disrespectful of the CPAC board and said the war between social conservatives and libertarians has been problematic. Ingraham said she favors a big tent, even thought she wasn't invited to speak and Cardenas said she's always welcome.
Cardenas said some GOProud members are going to speak for several hours.
Cardenas said he thinks Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz will get a huge reception at CPAC. He sees a number of issues such as the sequester, fiscal cliff, etc. that are key.
Cardenas said it was shocking that President Obama sent a delegation to Hugo Chavez's funeral after they've insulted the US. He and Ingraham commented on the affection liberals have for dictators.
