Saturday Morning at RightOnLine and NetRoots Nation

Several long campaign speeches are being given here: Herman Cain, Tim Pawlenty and Michelle Bachmann are all here.

In the morning session Rep. Bachmann employed her usual locution of how the tea party is composed of "independent, Republicans, Democrats, and libertarians" but then went on to say that "we" (Americans for Prosperity, RigthOnLine's sponsor? the tea party?) must invite all conservatives to defeat Obama, not just fiscal conservatives but "peace through strength" conservatives and social conservatives.

Now one can try to build some alliances: leaving marriage equality up to states or private churches and not forcing anyone to accept gay couples if they don't want to in their homes or churches; vouchers, education tax credits and home schooling. Maybe. But how to bridge the foreign policy differences? At best their could be compromise, where Bachmann at least says Libya is not authorized, Constitutional, or well thought out.
