Ben Carson spoke first at CPAC, and he managed to capture the sense among many in middle America that the politics of division and hatred is being played by too many on the Left.  You can see his full speech here.

“If you’re pro-traditional family, then you’re a homophobe,” said Dr. Carson,  “If you’re white and you oppose a progressive black person, you’re a racist. If you’re black, and you oppose a progressive agenda, you’re crazy. And if you’re black and you’re opposed to the progressive agenda, and you’re pro-life and you’re pro-family, they don’t even know what to you call you. I mean you end up on some kind of watch list for extremists.”
