Sam Seder filling in for Keith Olbermann on Countdown shared some of the highlights from day one of CPAC 2012.

SEDER: The one thing the Republicans do well, even better than fearmongering, is throw extravagant events. In our forth story, today began the thirty ninth annual Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, a chance for conservatives to come together and trash President Obama. Apparently twenty four hours on Fox News, was not sufficient. […]

But claiming that this is solely an event to trash the President is only half true. It also serves as the official 2012 meeting of the Reagan fan club, with each speaker seeing how many times they can mention the late president. Outside of the standard GOP talking points, this year's conference proved an opportunity for former presidential candidates to give their campaigns' postmortem.
