|House Speaker Boehner (R-OH)|
I also understand and am aware that the audience at this conference are all very strong conservatives, and that the speakers are very aware of that and therefore tailoring their speeches to please that audience. I would be curious to see how and if the rhetoric changes when these politicians discuss specific issues with liberals. I think a part of my serious dislike of Conservatism following this event has a lot to do with the extreme level I witnessed. I don't necessarily disagree that much with Hayward's article we read the other day. I am sure that if this was a liberal convention, it would also be too extreme, just in the other direction.
