Kudos to Bill Bennett!
On Saturday morning, author and former Education Secretary William Bennett responded to Dallas megapastor Robert Jeffress who had introduced and endorsed Rick Perry at the Values Voters Summit the day before by criticizing Mitt Romney and calling Romney’s Mormon faith a cult. From the stage Saturday morning, just minutes before Mitt Romney's arrival to speak, in response to Jeffress' remarks, Bennett said "You did Rick Perry no good sir, in what you had to say." Bennett also told the gathering of evangelicals at the Summit Saturday morning, "Do not give voice to bigotry. I'm thinking of the words of Pastor Jeffress. Do not give voice to bigotry."
Ron Paul won the Values Voters straw poll on Saturday with 37 percent of the vote. Rick Perry finished in a tie for fourth.
"You did Rick Perry no good sir, in what you had to say."
