  • Politico: Ted Cruz 'Crushed' Gridiron Speech, Even Impressed Democrats (great stuff!!)

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wowed the beltway elite and even Democrats during Saturday's annual Gridiron event, showing why the Ivy Leaguer has confounded and been vilified by many with whom he shares the same intellectual pedigree. The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.'s mainstream and "elite" journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can. Yet Cruz refuses to be co-opted by them politically, instead choosing to be a staunch conservative who represents...

    ... Here’s How He Turned the Tables on His Haters Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was forced to stop speaking multiple times while delivering a speech at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., Friday morning. Rather than cowering, he repeatedly shot back at his hecklers and accused them of being ”President Obama’s paid political operatives.” Cruz was first interrupted by a man in the audience who demanded to know why he wouldn’t “support a pathway to citizenship for immigrant families.” Later in the speech, the disruptions became more pointed, leading Cruz to more fervently address the outbursts. Based on muffled...

    Illegal immigrant advocates interrupted Sen. Ted Cruz’s speech to the Values Voters Summit on Friday more than a dozen times on, calling on the Texas Republican and potential presidential candidate to support a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. But the Texas Republican repeatedly deflected the criticism, turning it into an attack against President Obama. “How scared is the president?” Mr. Cruz said. “Oh, they don’t want the truth to be heard. They definitely don’t want the truth to be heard.” The crowd also tried to drown out the protestors with chants of “USA! USA!” The protesters were dragged out...

    Tea Party darling Sen. Ted Cruz, (R-TX) during a speech at the Heritage Foundation on Wednesday solidified his base with praise and adoration for the late Sen. Jesse Helms, (R-NC). The speech was delivered during a series of lectures on foreign policy in which the legacy of Jesse Helms is the central focus. During the speech, Cruz told a story about John Wayne giving a $5 thousand donation to Helms and telling him to, "keep saying those crazy things." Cruz admitted that he has received that same encouragement and likened himself to Helms in that regard. Cruz went on to...

    Good evening. I have the honor of standing before you this evening for one reason - because thousands upon thousands of grassroots activists stood united, not for a candidate, but for the sake of liberty. We’re seeing something extraordinary. Something that has dumbfounded the chattering class. It began in 2010, right here in Florida. In Utah, Kentucky, and in Pennsylvania. It continued this summer in the state of Indiana, in Nebraska, in Wisconsin. And in the Lone Star State. We are seeing a Great Awakening. A national movement of we the people, brought together by what unites us – a...
