Texas Senator Ted Cruz has a powerful ability, once thought to be reserved for the Men in Black. He can say something old and convince people that it's new. On Monday, for example, Cruz wrapped a speech at the Heritage Foundation's two-day policy summit and was asked to react to news that Mitt Romney was working over his old network and thinking about a third presidential bid.
"There are some who believe that a path to Republican victory is to run to the mushy middle, is to blur distinctions,” Cruz said. “I think recent history has shown us, that’s not a path to success. It doesn’t work. It’s a failed electoral strategy. I very much agree with President Ronald Reagan that the way we win is by painting with bold colors and not pale pastels."
