Video: Ron Paul supporters heckle Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld at CPAC

Talking Points Memo: Dick Cheney just popped up here at CPAC to introduce his old pal and Bush administration colleague Donald Rumsfeld. Fans of Ron Paul turned what should have been a friendly moment before an audience of fellow conservatives into a screaming match and protest action that resembled what a Cheney-Rumsfeld hug at the Netroots Nation convention might look like.
Rumsfeld is being given CPAC's "Defender Of The Constitution" award, a concept that apparently rankled Paul supporters in the crowd. Many of them got up and walked out en masse at the mention of Rumsfeld, though some stayed behind in the conference hall to heckle the architects of the invasion of Iraq.
One shout of "where's Bin Laden?" rang out as Cheney spoke of Rumsfeld.
That led to the pro-Cheney contingent (which it should be said greatly outnumbers the opposition) to shout the hecklers down with the familiar "USA, USA" chant.
Methinks the Ron Paul supporters were still chaffing over Donald Trump saying Ron Paul can't win.

That's too bad, but Vice President Cheney handled it well.
I heard the clip of Trump stating that Ron Paul can't win. Only time will tell, but if Paul doesn't win the primary, I sure hope he doesn't decide to run on a third ticket.

It's getting so that I'm more sick of these Ron Paul supporters than I am of Barak Obama supporters! They are just as obnocious and backwards thinking as the Obama supporters, and have more incommon with them than they're willing to admite! Some of those Ron Paul supporters are 9/11 turthers, Nazi sythesizers,etc.!

No they really really really don't like Cheney or Rumsfeld and truly believe they should tried and jailed for war crimes.

I just defriended three people on facebook last night because they are Paulites. It really is cult like. They are anti semites too. And yeah, I believe that Ron Paul is too. I am not sure about Rand, but Ron no doubt in my mind. If you ever make it to CPAC while he is still around you will see what I mean. They are bad enough on their own, but when they are in packs like that, truly scary.

Just a Conservative Girl,

Like the far left, they (the paulites) seem to be anti-Isreal, among other things and labels anyone who supports Israel as zionist! There are many that support Israel that are indeed zionistic! I support Isreal on a bases that they are a soverign nation with a good government and a allie to the U.S., not because I believe Israel is Gods special nation, today it's the Church (spiritual Israel) that is special to God, not a strip of land or a particular nationality!
