Posted on 08/24/2013 8:26:04 AM PDT by SoConPubbie
In an interview you will only see on The Brody File, influential Iowa evangelical leader Bob Vander Plaats, head of The Family Leader organization says that Sen. Ted Cruz, is a liberals worst nightmare.
He goes on to say that Cruz has unlimited potential to energize the GOP base.
I havent seen anything like it for a long time, probably ever, Vander Plaats tells The Brody File.
Cruz, along with Rick Santorum and Donald Trump will headline the big Family Leader event on Saturday in Iowa.
Vander Plaats, who is well liked and respected by Iowas evangelical community, played a huge role in helping determine Iowas Republican Caucus winner in 2008 and 2012. He endorsed Mike Huckabee in 2008 and Rick Santorum in 2012.
Watch the video below with a partial transcription from the interview.

Bob Vander Plaats: I havent seen anything like it for a long time, probably ever.... He combines a lot of qualities of a lot of people into one package.... I believe he is a liberals worst nightmare.
Ted Cruz Ping!
I am certainly praying this man does not succumb to the same self-interests and equivocation that Marco Rubio has.
Help Ted Cruz by forwarding this petition viral.
Obama and Holder are publicly speaking about their plan of the week that are just more smokescreen distractions to divert attention away from the incompetent manner Obama has handled his day job.
The best indicator of a PHONY ADMINISTRATION is the number of its REAL SCANDALS.
Commie Tyrant Obamas current talking points are thus smokescreen distractions for the products of Obamas first 4 years in office:
* Refusal to close US Southern Border to Mexican illegal alien invaders
* No known un-forged records of Place of Birth
* No known un-forged records of University grades
* Benghazi Massacre
* Dereliction of Duty as CIC during Benghazi Massacre
* Cover up of Benghazi Massacre
* Destruction of Seal Team Six
* Cover up of Fast and Furious murder of US Border Agent by Exec. Order
* IRS-Obamacare Commune Death Grip on Wealth and Health
* NSA-Gestapo Death Grip on all citizens communications
* Use of Courts against News Media
* Use of Supreme Court to install Un-Constitutional Obamacare Tax
* Destruction of the US Coal Industry
* Refusal to permit XL Pipeline construction
* Trillion Dollar a year Federal Overspending
* Monthly violations of the US Constitution by Obama
* Use of Exec. Orders to bypass Congress.
REPLACE sniveling coward Speaker Boehner with a FIGHTER!
It is time to IMPEACH Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro.
Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro), continues his unopposed efforts to expand Totalitarian Obamanation in Liberty-based America.
Where are the Republican opponents of Tyrant Obama?
Why have the Articles of Impeachment for Tyrant Obama not been issued by US House Speaker Boehner, or Pro-Welfare Republicans Cantor or Ryan?
Have House and Senate Pro-Welfare Republicans formed a cave-in pact with Pro-Welfare Democrats to protect Tyrant Obama?
The main thing that Speaker Boehner is afraid of is being blamed for doing his job.
Speaker Boehners job now is to shut down the NON-ESSENTIAL parts of the US Federal Government until Obamacare is ABOLISHED, and keep it shut down for however long it takes.
Santorum and Trump as headliners.
They are probably planning to muddle things in 2016 like they did in 2012.
Yup..was going to say the same thing.
All FReepers should support Cruz for now.
Whatever your opinion on his possible conflict regarding natural born, he is at least as natural born as Obama.
He is also kicking butt as far as the things our side (should) be out there kicking butt about.
Support Cruz strongly, without exception right now.
We can possibly worry about finer points later.
Right now, be all in please. EVERYone.
The only two viable GOP candidates I could consider right now are Cruz or Rand Paul. If we don’t get a real good candidate, I’ll vote third party for prez.
“They are meaningless in the overall outlook.”
According to a poll taken last year, 46% of republicans don’t think Obama is eligible.
That’s what Cruz will be up against.
I’m betting he won’t run.
He endorsed Santorum in ‘12? He’s not discerning AT ALL!
Thats what Cruz will be up against.I'll bet your guy Rand "Amnesty" Paul is praying for that.
Im betting he wont run.
Watch as the birther "purists" on FR try to take him out. They're on almost every Cruz thread. The MSM/dem complex is expecting them to do the deed, or do enough damage that he can never be a threat.
Santorum wasn’t a bad choice given the warts all over the rest of the conservatives. He clearly was a real pro-life, pro-natural family conservative.
But there weren’t any of them that would have passed a 100% pure test...or even the Ivory Soap test.
But ALL were better than Mitt Romney.
They’re not real FReepers.
The “natural born citizen” crowd hasn’t shown up yet.
Correction......they're just not real smart FReepers. They're in the stupidist wing of the stupid party.
LMAO. You can take it to the bank that Cruz will be one of the first endorsements Rand Paul will get when he announces:
How did you know I was ugly? Don't tell anyone. K?
It's one of the attacks the MSM is telegraphing they will use. It's one of the battle lines the MSM toadies have drawn.
The same old suspects, doing the same old things, with the almost certain same old results.
He's a traitor - he traded what those who elected him in PA for in to 'do it for the team' and he did it again in '12. He can put the ivory up his butt and he will still have dirty hands. He protected Romney by taking the clueless conservative votes and handed them to Romney - 'their plan/the GOPe's plan' all along to PREVENT Newt from being the candidate. At the time the plan was made - they weren't sure if PALIN would run. So the plan was for - AGAINST any conservative - and Santorum was their 'useable self proclaimed' conservative. He makes my stomach turn as much as his pimp Romney.
The libtards are WAAYYY overdue for at least a dozen years of night sweats and nocturnal enuresis sessions!
I hope Ted has beefed up his security. These azzholes play dirty!
Too bad Santorum is not a fiscal Conservative.
Too bad Santorum is not a fiscal Conservative.
Yep. He participated in some big spending in Congress.
