Statement from ACU Chairman Al Cardenas on the Violence in the Middle East

"We have spent the last 36 hours watching the mainstream press try to play a gotcha game with Governor Mitt Romney over his statements on the recent attacks in Libya, Yemen and Egypt. The attention should be focused on the Obama Administration and it's actions -- or inactions -- which may have led to these attacks on American sites.

This Administration's policies regarding the so-called "Arab Spring" have been a disaster. Yes, a disaster.

Statement from ACU Chairman Al Cardenas on the Anniversary of 9/11

“On today’s anniversary of 9/11, the memory of that clear day still remains as vivid as it was then. When I saw President George W. Bush in Florida on that fateful morning, little did we know what would unfold a few hours later. After the devastating news of the terrorist attacks, I could not shake off my anger then, and still to this day, of these barbaric acts that killed thousands of innocent lives, including the elderly, women and children. It’s been eleven years now and this war to keep us safe at home and the world free from these dangerous terrorists continues.

ACU Statement on NAT GAS Act

American Conservative Union (ACU) today issued the following statement from ACU Chairman Al Cardenas:

“We are thrilled to hear that T. Boone Pickens has thrown in the towel on the NAT GAS Act. It was a classic example of the federal government attempting to pick winners and losers within an industry and that’s why the ACU fought so hard against this misguided policy. ACU will continue to monitor this legislation and will act swiftly to make sure that the NAT GAS Act does not go anywhere”
