GOP Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz had the command of the room from the time he hit the stage and even when he left.
“Yesterday Pope Francis was in Washington. Wonderful to welcome him here. I have to say, the press conference was a little awkward, because every time the reporters addressed a question to your holiness, Barack Obama answered.”
“You want to know how much each of you terrify Washington? Yesterday, John Boehner was speaker of the House. (Cheers, applause.) Y’all come to town, and somehow that changes.”
But I want to come to you this morning with a word of hope and encouragement and exhortation. All across this country, this American people are waking up. And I’ll tell you today, help is on the way.
The first thing I intend to do is rescind every single illegal and unconstitutional executive action. The president tell us he’s got a phone and he’s got a pen. Well, you live by the pen you die by the pen. And my pen has got an eraser.
It was a great speech and listening to this, I am sure you will feel the emotion that flowed through the ballroom.
