Texas Senate candidate Ted Cruz speaking at the Values Voters Summit
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) at a conservative forum last August.
Ginning up the paranoia:
“Gun registries have been used as a preface to confiscation,” Cruz said, arguing that the federal government should never be allowed to keep track of legally-owned firearms and their owners. “It’s a tragedy, but it’s not a tragedy that should be answered by restricting the constitutional rights of all Americans,” Cruz said.
Obamer's cummin to git yer guns! Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition! Cruz will define the GOP position on gun legislation. Watch.

Cruz is running for president in 2016. From the hard, hard, right. Remember you heard it here first. While Chris Christie may believe that the Republican Party is a party interested in winning national elections, he's mistaken. This just isn't Christie's party and if he doesn't know it now Ted Cruz is going to inform him.

Marco Rubio is weak. While he may have been the flavor of the month when the GOP was looking for their token Latino, he's weak herbal tea compared to the fundamentalist
evangelical brew of triple shot espresso nutcase that is Ted Cruz of Texas. As for the other possibles, including Paul Ryan and Jeb Bush, these folks aren't talking to the base in terms they feel in their trigger fingers. Ted Cruz does and even makes them feel not all that racist about it.

Remember, you heard it here first.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
