FreedomWorks’ Blog Con Next Week – September 9-12, 2010

FreedomWorks, the D.C. based thorn in President Obama’s side is hosting Blog Con 2010 next week at the Sheraton Hotel in Crystal City. Somewhere around 160 bloggers – including Virginia Right! – will join politicians and press at the event which ends with the 9/12 rally in D.C.

Several of the bloggers we have already heard from were CPAC Bloggers this past February, so we can pick up the discussions at the receptions, or during the events and sessions.

Thursday starts with a meet and greet with House Communications Directors at the Capitol Visitors Center and ends with a reception with Erick Erickson, Matt Kibbe and Steven Crowder back at the hotel.

Friday starts with breakfast followed by the Opening Session hosted by Stephen Kruiser with Speakers: Mary Katharine Ham, Melissa Clouthier, John Hawkins, Jim Hoft and Scott Ott. There are a number of workshop sessions with various speakers and a lunch hosted by Matt Kibbe who will speak on the topic Austrian Economics: Why we’re right.

More sessions during the afternoon are followed by a reception at the FreedomWorks offices downtown.

FreedomWorks held a Bloggers reception at their offices during CPAC and Michelle Malkin and Dick Armey were two of the more interesting attendees, along with an array of bloggers from all over the country. Good food, cold beer and an office space full of right wing bloggers. What more could you want?

Apparently Friday night will take some recovery time because Saturday is going to be pretty quiet. Dick Armey will have an afternoon book signing and supplies will be available to make signs for the 9/12 event Sunday.

Sunday starts with a Worship Service at the Washington Monument and the main event – 9/12 – begins at noon with a stroll down Pennsylvania Avenue to the West Lawn of the Capitol.

Stay tuned for live updates from the FreedomWorks event and the 9/12 event.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
