Winning: ‘Proud wacko bird’ Sen. Ted Cruz highlights conservative momentum

It might only be three weeks’ worth, but Sen. Ted Cruz said in his keynote address at CPAC Saturday that conservatives are winning right now, and it’s a “dirty secret” the Obama administration and the media don’t want you to know.

True, conservatives certainly didn’t win the day in November, but Cruz’s assessment is based on a series of smaller triumphs which have grabbed the public’s attention recently, says senior communications advisor Amanda Carpenter.

Three weeks (including a 13-hour filibuster) is a nice run, but how do conservatives keep winning? Cruz went on to lay out the specifics of his plan, beginning with a vigorous defense of the Constitution.

Conservatives in attendance might not have gone into the speech feeling like they were winning, but many left feeling that way.
