Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, dealt with several hecklers during his speech at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C., on Friday, pointing out that the Left was deeply afraid of them.

"It seems that President Obama's paid political operatives are out in force today," he said after being interrupted by a heckler. "And you know why? Because the men and women in this room scare the living daylights out of them."

Cruz cited the movie "The Usual Suspects" during his speech, quoting the character Keyser Söze.

"The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that he didn't exist," he said.

Cruz added that liberal Democrats were doing the same thing to conservatives.

"Well, you know what? The greatest trick the Left has ever played is to convince conservatives that we cannot win," he said.

Cruz told the group that time was running out for conservatives to stand up and fight.

"We're nearing the edge of a cliff and our window to turn things around, my friends — I don't think think it is long. I don't think it is 10 years," Cruz said. "We have a couple of years to turn this country around or we go off the cliff to oblivion."
