At what seemed to be by far the most well-attended speech at CPAC this year, Marco Rubio gave not only a passionate defense of conservative values, but faced off against CNN's Dana Bash during the question and answer period, for some reason.

The crowd was enthralled by Marco's speech and the reaction on social media has been overwhelmingly effusive. Once again, compare against Trump, who couldn't even be bothered to try and reach conservative Americans. Because he isn't one. Rubio clearly is.

The one thing that struck me above all was how genuine and honest Marco Rubio comes across. He's not just making a speech. He's really talking to people.

And his answers to Dana Bash on Trump were AWESOME.

Watch the whole thing.
