Ted's religious views may win him the evangelical vote in some of these early primary states come next year, but beyond that when he tries to appeal to the moderate middle, he will sink and sink fast when he finds that his Christian beliefs and how they affect his political views will be his undoing. This is the very same thing that affects Mike Huckabee and also why he will never be President. If you are perceived as one who is fundamentalist, I don't think you have any chance of being President, and in my opinion, thankfully so.

I for one, can't wait to see some of the things he will say. He will keep Bill Maher alone full of jokes for the better part of 14 months.

I don't understand why candidates must talk religion. Separation of church and state, you know. Shouldn't that apply to politicians campaigning for office to do the "state's" work? They are not trying to become priests. Religion should be personal.

Cruz makes the 2012 GOP line-up look sane.

"Ted" Cruz is the living, breathing symbol of everything that is wrong with the Republican Party. People like him are killing our brand and making it harder for us to win presidential elections. People look at these Tea Party fools and their obsession with "conservative" purity, refusal to compromise, and "religious/cultural morals" and they are instantly repulsed from even thinking about voting for a more moderate Republican candidate.

He's got stiff competition even in the bid for evangelical votes, with Huckabee, Walker, and Rand Paul in the picture.

Name one GOP hopeful that isn't trying to keep god in government.

Freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.
You can keep government out of gods business(1st amendment), but you will never get god out of governments business.
