It’s Values Voter Summit day in Washington, and it only took a couple of speakers at the arch-conservative conference led by the Family Research Council to get down to the John McCain bashing.
Brent Bozell, the founder and president of the Media Research Center, took the stage to introduce Sen. Ted Cruz, a man who he said has the strength and principle to lead the Republican party. Other Republicans, though, don’t have that. Bozell specifically went after the party’s 2008 presidential candidate.
“No one is more intellectually dishonest” than Sen. John McCain, Bozell said to applause and scattered boos.
It’s another obvious sign of how much the heart of the Republican party has changed since 2008. The Arizona senator actually spoke to the conference in 2007, although he avoided it before the election in 2008, which predictably did not impress the FRC.
