    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...

    ... 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...
  • The End of Mitt Romney

    The big story coming out of Friday's Values Voter Summit—the massive religious-right confab in DC—is the obvious marriage between the burgeoning tea party movement and the old Christian Coalition. The stars of the event were tea party luminaries: Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), and of course, newcomer Christine O'Donnell, who just won the Senate GOP primary in Delaware. But lost amid all the tea party fervor was what may be the beginning of the end of the presidential prospects of former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. Romney was clearly here because he is running...

    A day after former Baptist minister and likely presidential rival Mike Huckabee offered a withering critique of Mitt Romney's record, the former Massachusetts governor made his pitch to the same group of religious conservatives. Romney appealed to attendees at the Values Voter Summit in Washington on Saturday, using a speech that drew heavily from his address to social conservatives at the same hotel earlier this year. "Putting such a spirit-crushing, back-breaking debt burden on our children is unworthy of our national character," he said. "That is why I believe that this spending and borrowing is not just economically irresponsible, it...

    Trumpeting “faith, family and freedom”, the Religious Right has arrived in Washington convinced that the ascending star of Sarah Palin signifies a Republican presidential campaign created in their own image. The annual Values Voter Summit gathers together many of the socially conservative leaders once dismissed by John McCain as “agents of intolerance” and who, just 12 months ago, might well have cost him the Republican nomination. Last year’s meeting was addressed by no less than nine Republican runners and, in a later straw poll, Mr McCain finished last with support from a mere 1.4 per cent. Yesterday the mood could...
