What Is Your Opinion Of Pete King (R-GOP-e NY)?
10/6/2013 | Laissez-Faire Capitalist

Posted on 10/06/2013 11:42:56 AM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist

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.

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

Pete King?

I think Sinn Fein is the touchy feely front end of the IRA.

And blowing up Protestants is well...murder.

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 doesn’t 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.

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.

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?

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.”

He is an insider fat cat that got his toes trodden on.

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.

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.

His positions are what you'd expect from one of the few remaining Republicans from the Northeast in Congress.

The reason he's so vocal and visible on television has more to do with his personality. Fame and attention can become addictive.

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.

This.

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.
