On Thursday's edition of Glenn Beck's television program on The Blaze, the host said Ted Cruz carries a Moses-like burden in that God asked him to "step up to the plate" and for two years he has been teared apart.
BECK: These guys actually believe it like we believe it. Imagine being in a position to where you believe it, you believe the country is at the end, you believe that God is telling you, 'Step up to the plate.' You believe that you, just like Moses, may be slow in speech and not the perfect guy, but you know if you get in there, you can actually do something and you've tried to stay loyal. Do you know what that life is like for two years of tearing yourself apart, of 'please Lord, just tell me, just tell me, just tell me, I'll do it, just tell me.' And the burden of I blew it? Oh my gosh, I don't want to be them.
