This afternoon in Tampa, GOP Senate candidate from Texas, Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a Tea Party favorite, spoke at a Faith & Freedom Coalition event. Here's a transcript of the relevant portions, and here's the audio:
"You know, we have so many things to be thankful for, so many blessings — including even, we can be thankful for Hurricane Isaac. If nothing else, it kept Joe Biden away. (*applause*) I'm thrilled the RNC is gonna be paying to put Joe Biden on a national tour (*laughter*), because he truly is a wonderful spokesman for what this administration represents."
[five minutes omitted]
"There is a tidal wave coming. (*applause*) You know, a tidal wave often follows hurricanes (*applause*), and in November a tidal wave is coming."
