The GOP establishment epically failed to smear Senator Ted Cruz tonight for attending an event for Middle Eastern Christians.
Instead, Senator Ted Cruz was booed off stage at a gathering of Middle East Christians in DC for his support of Israel.

Cruz was attacked earlier in the day by the GOP establishment’s Washington Free Beacon for attending a conference that they said featured some pro-Hezbollah speakers.

Of course there were no pro-Hezbollah or pro-Assad speakers at the event but that didn’t stop the smear job.
Instead Cruz stood up for Israel and was booed off stage by anti-Israel Middle Eastern Christians.

It was an epic fail.
Even critics of Senator Cruz like Washington Free Beacon co-founder Michael Goldfarb, a lobbyist for the Georgian and Taiwanese governments, were forced to acknowledge Cruz’s political skill.
