The quietest moment of this week’s Conservative Political Action Convention in Washington came Friday afternoon, when Jim Martin voiced his tribute to Pat Boone.

Boone, the “legendary entertainer” and “son of a gun” is spokesman for Martin’s conservative 60-Plus Association, and Martin’s first invocation of the singer and conservative activist drew applause from about a dozen of the thousands assembled in ballroom at the Marriott Wardman Park. At his second attempt to raise a cheer for “the original American idol,” one person clapped.

The silence wasn’t reverent, or scornful – just uncomprehending.

With the revival over the past year of the conservative grassroots has come an infusion of fresh blood and fresh energy, and that generational shift was on display at CPAC, whose record 10,000 attendees skewed younger, organizers said, than ever. But the Boone moment was an extreme instance of the sometimes jarring contrast between a young, energized new rank and file and a Republican Party leadership that has yet to offer new ideas to match the moment.

“Republicans have an ideal (limited government, individual freedom, individual responsibility) that genuinely resonates with the public,” said Jon Henke, a Republican consultant and founder of the Next Right, which has been critical of the party on these grounds. “But Republicans don’t have viable, sustainable ideas that can actually solve the underlying problems. So, instead of making transformative changes and real progress on the size and scope of government, Republicans turn to tactical small-ball.”

Indeed, the ideas in circulation on the floor of the crowded conference were not exactly fresh.
