Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) is running for president.
In a radio interview this week, the Republican lawmaker told a New Hampshire station that he was in the state because right now Im running for president, according to The New York Daily News.

He is probably just doing this order to have a platform to better attack Ted Cruz and Ron Paul for disagreeing with his neocon views.
This is the Clinton family's favorite RINO and he's is eager to send Americans to die in Syria. Says Obama should ignore Congress if they vote no.
RAND Paul, I mean.
We never get to see him on TV so this will be great! /s
He supports war with Syria and NSA snooping, sounds like the perfect “Republican” candidate.
It’s too stupid to be funny, wouldn’t work if it was satire.
Yeah, me too.
Well, that oughta be a short campaign.
This clown won’t get anything but hoots of derision from west of the Delaware River.
Australia showed us the way.
No more RINOs like King.
Conservatism can win.
Another GOP pygmy throws his hat into the ring. In King’s case, his hat has to be tiny to fit his pinhead....
I hope they both run, we need get these RINOs out of Washington.
King's fan club has been pretty quite lately. But we never do seem to run a decent primary challenger against this guy.
Peter must be flush with a campaign warchest he needs to launder.
You were right about that twerp all along.
Even though he’s good on some issues he’s got to be one of the RINOs I’d most like to eject from Congress. I hope he’s seriously challenged in the primary, but I don’t expect that in NY.
He even looks like Ray LaHood. You just know he’s in Hillary’s cabinet if God forbid, she wins. Or maybe ambassador to Ireland so he can network with his IRA terrorist buddies.
It would be different if his part of the country were not communist but communism is the political religion of the politicians in the north east and I will shun them all.
I think his eyes are too close together for a white guy unless he’s a racist.
We don’t need another Northeastern “moderate” ‘pubbie on the ticket! Ever!
Peter King is a war mongering POS. He has no respect for the rule of law or the Constitution.
He believes the President can start a war whenever he feels like it and that he can spy on Americans with no warrant or probable cause. He believes the ruling political class can commit perjury at will. He voted against impeaching Clinton for his perjury and defended that lying scumbag, James Clapper when he committed perjury before Congress.
Now he wants to start a war that will help Al Qaeda terrorists. Its an embarrassment that he is even in Congress.
Doesn’t announcing this early mess him up with campaign-finance laws?
A disgusting RINO. I wonder what photos he received in the mail that turned him to Obama’s side.
President KING— don’t we already have one of those now? (or at least he thinks so?)
Running for president of what? Do circus clowns have a union?
He looks like Carlos the Jackal with an afro.
“We dont need another Northeastern moderate pubbie on the ticket! Ever!”
Agree for sure. Don’t know what King and Christie are snorting or smoking but neither has a snow ball’s chance of carrying the Red L....
Running on the IRA Ticket?
IMO, he probably would not play well outside the NJ/NY/CT tri-state area.
I think its satire. This fool stands no chance.
He’ll just reverse it: King President.
a NY “Republican”//// Not a chance
OH thank you. I badly need a chuckle this fine Monday, and this is it. HA HA HO HO HEE HEE... Pete King for President... That’s a good one. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!
“I am, I said....to no one there...and no one heard at all ...Not even the chair.”
Unfortunately, he started making the rounds on Fox News to talk about how much he opposed illegal aliens and Muslims, and apparently all was forgiven in the minds of some conservative activists. They'd claim King was a terrific conservative leader, regardless of how bad he was on everything else. King has always been a huge fan of the Clintons and regularly sided with the Dems on all kinds of high profile fights over the last decade. His fan club would always come out of the woodwork for these types of threads, to express "shock" that King would do so, and claim he's normally a great, reliable conservative who deserves our support.
Are conservatives FINALLY catching on to the fact that King is a backstabbing treasonous RINO after 15 years? I'd like to think it's true, but at this point it wouldn't surprise me if King put on some dog-and-pony show in time for next year's primary ("if elected, I will deport anyone who believes in Sharia law!"), and had conservatives swooning over him in time for 2014.
I've noticed the "war on terror is the MOST important issue" types seem to have largely disappeared from FR, however.
He does remind me a lot of LaHood (another phony "conservative" who is totally in bed with the Dems).
I used to say his voice and mannerisms (speaks with that angry, pompous, sarcastic, hoarse, northeastern lisp) reminded me of Barney Frank, and I was told by King's fan club that this is a "smear" and he's nothing like Bwarney. Still, I can find numerous examples where you could swamp quotes from Bwarney about various current events with quotes from King, and nobody would be able to tell who said what.
His support for Al Qaeda shows that his support of fighting terrorism is a phony cover for advancing the ruling political class’ ability to spy on all Americans.
lol! I can see it.
aint much in that article ... the real info is in the Daily News article and how bout a NH news source showing where he was, etc.
That is my thorough review of your FR performance.
So he’s establishing a national Sinn Fein party for America ?
He appears to be serious about pretending to run.
Well, freepers appear to have caught on.
But will that matter in his district?
He should be about as successful as Obama;s former Ambassador to China whatshisname.
Jon Huntsman. The OTHER Mormon liberal, even worse than Romney.
I doubt King still be in the race when the voting actually starts. He just wants a platform to attack Cruz and any other Republican who opposes his neocon foreign policy.
