article imageMajor Conservative Group to Recognize Liberal George McGovern

By Carol Forsloff     Feb 16, 2009 in Politics
A big movement is growing and going to Washington. Barack Obama needs to know about that. George McGovern is on the agenda and so is Joe the Plumber, so Obama is apt to have some pretty saucy folks around to quibble with a little.
In a matter of days the Washington DC hotels will play host to an organization called Conservatives Students Activists and Policy Makers. There will be keynote speakers the public longs to hear such as Michelle Malkin, Glenn Reynolds and Joe the Plumber who will be doing remarks on a simultaneous Internet broadcast. The event will take place on February 26, 2009 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.
The Conservative 2.0 Conference is having a joint conference with CPAC. This special organization, Conservatives Students Activists and Policy Makers, has an agenda for the conference that includes a number of subjects Republicans are concerned about. Here are some of them:
1. How Liberals are Destroying the American Election
2. Protecting the Secret Ballot
3. Building the Conservative Hispanic Coalition
4. Targets of the Fairness Doctrine
Speakers include Joe Scarborough, members of the Heritage Foundation, The American Conservative Union, Liberty University, John M. Ashbrook Center for Public Affairs, Concerned Women for America, and the Leadership Institute. Mike Huckabee will be on hand for book signing. Senator Bob Corker will be there to represent the National Rifle Association. There will also be something called “Sarah Palin Unplugged on the Media Interview” and a number of presentations and award luncheons and dinners. The Charlton Heston Courage Under Fire Award is to be given to the Honorable George McGovern.
George McGovern was a bomber pilot in World War II and the son of a Baptist preacher. That gives him credits for a salute at the conference likely.
But Charlton Heston, the former actor and most famous symbol of the National Rifle Association, voted against McGovern when he ran for President. McGovern he sought the impeachment of George Bush and Dick Cheney, so one wonders if he’ll be at the conference to get his award. Or will this be a Republican response to Democrat President Barack Obama’s reach to Republicans for the stimulus plan, for a conservative group to give an award to George McGovern, one of the more liberal Senators and Presidential hopefuls in modern times.
