Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld will receive the “Defender of the Constitution” award at CPAC this year.The award will be presented by David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union, which organizes CPAC, and right-wing talk show host Brad O’Leary, who recently wrote a book called America’s War On Christmas, because he said President Obama “declared that America is not a Christian nation.”
