Washington Times writer: Ted Cruz blew away 6,000 people at NRA convention

Please, don’t encourage them. The NRA’s critics already consider the organization directly responsible for every shooting death recorded in the United States. That tidbit aside, were people really yelling, “You are our leader”? It’s certainly possible, and Sen. Ted Cruz’ interest in a 2016 run for president has been called “undeniable.” If Cruz does run, expect a lot of headlines that resemble that tweet.

That won’t be spun the wrong way MT @rhallow_times Cruz blew away some 6000 people at NRA in Houston with some yelling “You are our leader!”

Maybe not the best way to phrase that MT @rhallow_times: Sen. Ted Cruz blew away some 6,000 people at NRA in Houston…

@rickfolbaum @rhallow_times Agree. Poor word choice.

It’ll take more than Nazi references to quiet Ted Cruz, who challenged Vice President Joe “Buy a Shotgun” Biden to an hour-long debate on stopping crime. Did Cruz’ defense of the Constitution blow away the crowd in Houston? Yes, it did.
