What is your opinion of Pete King? Is he doing the attack conservatives first, then maybe one day he will get around to attacking Democrats?
Is the House GOP on a kamikaze mission with the government shutdown?
Is he blaming the GOP when he should be blaming the Democrats?
Obama is the one acting like an autocrat who says that he gets to decide who is exempt and who isn't.
Obama: 1.) Big Business is exempt 2.) Fat-cats in the Senate & House of Reps get taxpayer-funded subsidies for ObamaCare 3.) No defunding of ObamaCare. 4, 5, 6...
Repubs, otoh: 1.) They compromise from defunding to a one-year exemption for individuals (just like Obama is doing for Big Business), 2.) no tax-payer funding for fat-cats in Congress, along with all of the other compromises they are trying to make with Obama. 3.) The rest of gov't is funded. 4, 5, 6...
The exemption for Big Business is costing at least 80% of what an exemption for individuals would cost.
Looks like Obama is defunding ObamaCare.
Pete King is from the “attack conservatives first” wing of the GOP.
He LOVES to be on TV.
And he is a fraud.
Peter King is one of the first to get caught as a democrat saboteur who should be kicked out of the HOR Republican caucus. He somehow thinks that if he yells and screams and insults patriots such as Ted Cruz the dems will save his sorry *ss in the HOR. JMHO
I think Sinn Fein is the touchy feely front end of the IRA.
And blowing up Protestants is well...murder.
He is an insider fat cat that got his toes trodden on.
He claims he’s a “Reagan Republican”.
I call him dog s7it
I kinda liked him ten years ago.
A few years ago, I had to say What was I thinking?
Now? I despise him more than I do Nancy Pelosi.
At least she doesnt pretend to be anything other than a Statist -with communist leanings.
he is the so called anti terrorist congressman who, a few years back, belonged to groups who funded weapons for the IRA.
He is a POS and a RINO and an anti second amendment doooooshbag.
Peter King: A cross between McCain and a Leprechaun.
Peter King = NO vote on Bill Clinton impeachment. (CASE CLOSED)
My opinion of Pete King was crystallized when he came out publicly in support of Chahhhhlie Rangel, when Rangel was facing expulsion or censure for failing to pay his taxes, declare rent-controlled apartments, vacation homes and other income.
Pete King likes being part of the Congress Club. He has celebrity, a cushy life and tells himself he’s above the rest of us because he’s special. He’ll fight for his constituents a bit, on some things, but the Congress Club comes first. So when some actual conservatives stand on principle and threaten “the way things are done”, boy does he get all pissy.
IIRC, he fought like hell against the mosque at the WTC site and against the trial of whatzisnuts in NYC.
Peter King is a Rino fraud!
Pete King should be primaried.
Interesting questions for King -
If he thought he could win the fight to defund Obamacare, would he do it?
What compromises does he recognize that the Democrats and Obama have placed on the table?
Which group has been more harmful to the United States, the Tea Party, or Democrats?
King is doing exactly what can be expected from a New York republican. Expecting anything else is an exercise in futility.
Well, I went over to the DU site, they like him..
Needs to go bye bye.
These aholes all have their retirement in the for front.The jobs is a means to and end.Start changing that and the whole thing will turn a round.
Peter King is a politician first and foremost. His goal in life is not to better the country, but to keep his job until the day he dies. He loves the perks that come with it. He represents a district in Long Island that is chock full of government workers and the others love the bennies that big government provides. His district love their Social Security checks and bloated government pensions. If they could, they would lick the plate clean. Unlike their less well of fellow citizens in the inner cities, these folk like to put on the show of super patriotism and moral uprightness. So it is no surprise their representative in Congress mirrors themselves perfectly, and as long as he does, he is set for life. So Peter King presents himself as the knight in shining armor as he does battle with radical Islam from thousands of miles away from the bullets. You will see Peter King anquishing about abortion. A true Conservative you might say. But this is all trumped once the gravy train is threatened for his middle class constituents when its their government cheese that is threatened. He is no different then the rest of them personally. The difference comes from who their constituents are. Saw a Republican from Virginia moaning and groaning about Ted Cruz. Same with this guy. He probably represents a district overrun by a certain parasite called the non-essential government worker. He is only going parrot whatever his constituents want. As an old saying said,”with have met the enemy, and he is us.”
Does he live in Massapequa NY with Bill and Hill?
Pecker King is another nutless wonder who has the macho to attack Republicans, but turns to jello in the face of Democrats.
And sees Ted Cruz running away with his inflated dreams for the WH.
I used to admire King's clarity with regard to the Islamic threat, but lately he has lost his direction.
Ditto, and yet even worse!
He’s a media hog, spewing his hate for Ted Cruz, whom I adore and greatly admire.
Peter King can go straight to Hell.
Bill and Hill live in Chappaqua in Westchester County. Massapequa is where Joey and Amy live.
I think Long Island.
He always reminds me of an old used car salesman.
LOL. Nailed it.
The House GOP did not shut down the government
Disagreeing with Ted Cruz is one thing. Carrying the Dem’s water for them is another. King has gone over and above to mimic the talking points coming out of this White House. And how do we know? Because King made it personal. He didn’t go after Cruz’s position. He went after Cruz the man, which is a typical tactic of the left. That makes King a collaborator, just like John McCain.
He thinks the IRA is just peachy rather then an international marxist terror group.
Every thing I needed to know about Peter King I have known for at least a decade.
Sorry I get my tribe names mixed up.
He is, indeed--a Ron Reagan Republican.
What do I think of Peter King? It’s fortunate that we’re 2000 miles apart. To the NSA, I don’t plan on going anywhere near him.
We got to get this ass out of the party by next time he runs kick his butt.
“His goal in life is not to better the country, but to keep his job until the day he dies.”
Ding, ding, ding! No more calls, we have a winner!
The reason he's so vocal and visible on television has more to do with his personality. Fame and attention can become addictive.
Another reason we need Term Limits....Politics should not be a career.
I disagree. Pete King is a Republican in the tradition of Rep. Vito Marcantonio (R-NY). New York Republicans can do much better, especially in a district that not long ago was represented by Conservative/Republican Rick Lazio.
Pete King SUCKS.
Peter King is a scum bag!!!
I used to have tremendous respect for him for his work against Islamofascism. At one time, he wasn’t afraid to stand up to the CAIR’s (or whatever it’s called now) or to call radical Islam what it is: Islamofascism.
He has now shown his true, Northeast moderate, er, liberal, colors. He’s no conservative, but it’s time that we all understand that this—he—is what the GOP now stands for. He isn’t in the minority.
He’s a bulldog on anti-terrorism, a turkey on just about everything else.
