If you're a 2016 GOP presidential hopeful, watch out for Rep. Peter King's right hook ...

King believes the Republicans don't stand a chance if they put up the wrong candidate against Hillary Clinton.

"I think she's very strong on foreign policy, and I think that if we nominate someone from our isolationist wing of the party, she'll destroy them," King said, putting Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz squarely in the isolationist category ...

And what foreign policy successes did Hillary have?

"I think she's very strong on foreign policy..."

What makes you think that Pete? The outstanding job she did with Benghazi or the wonderful jobs she did with Libya, Syria and Egypt. I mean, we all know that her "Arab Spring" was a big hit with the Arabs.

“”I think she’s very strong on foreign policy”.
Yes, just ask the families of the four killed in Benghazi just how “strong” she is on foreign policy. That witch needs to be hung out to dry!

Steaming Pantload.

The Hildabeast could be sliced and diced on FP. If a pubbie had the nads to ask the right questions and bring up some real history. None do. We lose. Benghazi becomes just another ignored "Cattlegate".

THIS is what is wrong with the Republican Party. Put aside Hillary or any particular issue. It is this notion that THEY will win and WE will lose if WE don't do x.

He's probably right about Rand Paul (who sounds like his dad). However, Ted Cruz is very pro-USA and would campaign for American strength. He could beat Hillary. Great race.

Ted Cruz - 2016

Why would anyone vote for a “moderate” (rino) repub when they can vote for Hillary and get the real thing, the same thing on steroids.

That is exactly how the go along to get along Republican party lost the last two elections.

What is that thing about doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result?

The republican party, the big R, is infected with that disease.

Peety King is a jellow bellied RINO.

He is no different from that Jersey puke, Chris Christy.

A NORTHEAST, RINO, DUMBA$$ PUBBIE.

King’s problem is that he’s from NEW YORK. The only pubbies that come from NY are geldings.

Dame Klintoon is a cut BELOW the kenyan, IMHO.

But dumba$$es being dumba$$es, northeast RINOs will continue to be just that, dumba$$es.

I suspect that Rand Paul has the edge on foreign affairs. Those sucked up by the DC fog don't have a clue how fed up most US citizens are with recreational war-mongering.

Rand Paul is the one who can really put it to hillary about Benghazi and droning people on the foreign enemies list.

Peter King represents the Wall St, NYC urban cultural elites in everything he says and does, including their favorites which are amnesty for illegal immigrants and gun control for the masses, because he is owned wholly by Bloomberg and the NYC elites.

He doesn’t begin to represent my culture or my beliefs.

That's why our ambassador is DEAD.

When that "3-oclock phone call" came, the dumb beeyatch was drunk.

The only thing "strong" about this a$$wipe is the strength of her drink.

Peter King [Sez] Hillary Clinton Would 'Destroy' Rand Paul and Ted Cruz

And then she'd wake up.

I say "Bring it on, biotch(es)!"

Tthe Left is seriously underestimating what's coming in the next 4 years. We know what's coming, both electorally and Tyrannically, but they, in their pride, do not.

Let's all hope that these arrogant, conceited fools continue to miss out on what's really happening. The People are going to be forced to make a choice between Freedom and Tyranny, and when that becomes the choice; when the contrast becomes that stark, I believe that those on the side of Tyranny are going to find themselves much more isolated and vulnerable than they think.

Peter King should probably switch parties, by the way. Doesn't it feel like he should be a Democratic Senator by now?

She got Ambassador Stephens killed.

That was pretty good for her I guess.

The one thing that Cruz or Paul either one has to remember if they debate her is that they are not dealing with a lady.

They are dealing with a woman that will lie, cheat, steal ,perhaps even murder. Or she will put up with lying cheating stealing and selling tainted blood if it will further her in politics.

Like Mama said in the movie “The Waterboy” she is the Debbil.

Most of the time he makes NO sense at all...but then neither does Hussein Obama...neither one is worth the time it takes me to spit...

As for Hillary destroying someone, she has done her share..she has a ton of baggage she will be the one that gets destroyed, with the right person running...who is that??? who knows at this point!!!!!

I'm so happy Pork King is running. 2016 is shaping up to be the anti-2012 where we had several Conservatives running against the severe liberal, mittens.

With jebba the bush, jabba the christie, rubiozdawrongway and porking splitting the tokyo rove vote we can get a Ted or Sarah.

"I think she's very strong on foreign policy, and I think that if we nominate someone from our isolationist wing of the party, she'll destroy them," King said,

Two things:

1. King wouldn't know an isolationist if it bit him in the ass.

2. Name one element of foreign policy -- or a single foreign policy issue -- in which she is "strong". Just one.

3. Name one positive accomplishment of her reign as Secretary of State. Just one. Aside from ambassador sacrifice, of course.

Note: capitol-hopping is not an element of foreign policy, nor is it an issue.

Peter King is a Northeast Liberal RINO of no particular value aside from his membership in the Republican caucus.

I have to agree with him where Rand Paul is concerned.

No one who is Pro-Amnesty should be let anywhere near the Whitehouse and invalidates Rand Paul as a conservative candidate for POTUS. These type of politicians are no better than TRAITORS.

Cruz on the other hand, is doing just fine and would make a magnificent POTUS!

Cruz would Cruise to victory over the HildeBeast, Rand, with his Amnesty plan and his wishy washiness over social issues, and his Big 'L' Libertarian streak would get beat soundly.

And what should pull you straight back to reality about Rand not ever winning the White House is his Amnesty plan.

Well, since many conservatives wouldn’t turn out to vote for Romney because he didn’t fit their narrow ideological definition, then they probably wouldn’t turn out to vote for Cruz or Paul either. (Just wait, they’ll find some way to get you guys to turn against Cruz, if hs should run).

So, the idiot King is probably right.

Good lord the RINOs are crapping their pants.

Paul didn’t vote for Amnesty, and I think we vastly underestimate the intellect of these gentlemen.

As far as Hillary against another GOPe such as Jeb, Christie, King, etc. I think they underestimate how many of us will say thanks by no thanks. Moderate doesn’t stand a chance unless there is some horrific scandal.

Sadly, he’s correct.

In fact, there’s not anyone on the scene now that can beat Hitlery. The sheeple that loved Obama for a 2nd term will push her over the top no matter how bad O’s 2nd term ends up. The middle love her.

Like Rush said after O won, “We are outnumbered and losing ground...” And that hasn’t changed since the election.

Flame away, all who think I’m being pessimistic. It’s reality.
