Palin discusses her attendance at CPAC

Posted by loricalabrese on February 8, 2011

In an exclusive interview released Saturday with The Brody File on the Christian Broadcasting Network, Sarah Palin addressed the rumors surrounding her involvement with the Conservative Political Action Conference, the annual political conference attended by conservative activists and elected officials from across the United States.

Speculation has swirled regarding the fact that Palin has never attended a CPAC conference and for the fourth year in a row, Palin has declined an invitation to address the conference.

In the past, Sarah Palin’s schedule as governor in Alaska kept her from making an appearance. However, last year, rumors of disapproval over David Keene’s stewardship swirled, even though on the record, Palin stated that she missed the conference over scheduling issues.

This year, Palin’s PAC plans to participate at CPAC, but Palin once again will not be able to attend due to scheduling issues.

“February is our busiest winter month and with all the prior obligations and outside travel already scheduled for the month I had to forgo some of the opportunities in the Lower 48,” said Palin in an email to the Fix Thursday explaining her decision.

Palin confirmed that in her interview with David Brody Friday evening in Santa Barbara, California after giving the keynote speech at the Reagan 100 Celebration Opening Banquet sponsored by the Young America’s Foundation.

Palin said, “Well, I’ve never attended a CPAC conference ever so I was a little taken aback this go around when I couldn’t make it to this one either and then there was a speculation well I either agree or disagree with some of the groups or issues that CPAC is discussing. It really is a matter of time for me”

Palin is addressing the fact that some conservatives are skipping out over the presence of GOProud, an organization that stands for conservative values and gay rights

Palin added, “…David, perhaps what it is that you’re suggesting in the question is should the GOP, should conservatives not reach out to others, not participate in events or forums that perhaps arising within those forums are issues that maybe we don’t personally agree with? And I say no. It’s like you being on a panel shoot, with a bunch of the liberal folks whom you have been on and you provide good information and balance, and you allow for healthy debate, which is needed in order for people to gather information and make up their own minds about issues. I look at participation in an event like CPAC or any other event along kind of in that same vein as the more information that people have the better.”
