Cruz Faces Fresh Waves of Inconsistency Charges

TRUSSVILLE, Ala. Ted Cruz woke up Sunday morning to a fresh barrage of charges of inconsistency from his Republican rivals for the White House, allegations that go far beyond his battle with Marco Rubio over their roles in the 2013 immigration debate.

In TV interviews, at least three of his GOP opponents raised accusations new and old that the Texas senator is anything but the "consistent conservative" he claims to be on the campaign trail. Joining Rubio in the Sunday morning pile-on were U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

Leading the charge has been Rubio, the Florida senator who has been tangling with Cruz for weeks over a range of issues most sharply immigration. Rubio has charged Cruz with being unclear on how he would deal with the 12 million people already in the country illegally, while Cruz has countered that he has never wavered in his oppostion to providing any form of "amnesty" to them.

"There are multiple issues in which he has tried to do these sort of things," Rubio said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "If you're going to attack someone on a policy issue, you need to be clear where you stand on the issue, and where you stood in the past."

1. Vile as Cruz is, he's doing rings around

Marco Rubio, who is trying to figure out how to appeal to the idiot base and yet emerge as a mainstream candidate for the general. Not sure how that works, but it's becoming apparent that Rubio can't do it.

We didn't hear a peep out of Rand Paul and Jeb! about Cruz until Cruz rose in polling.
