Posted on 09/25/2013 7:56:36 PM PDT by Viennacon
Congressman Peter King has been one of the strongest Republican voices opposing Ted Cruzs fight against Obamacare, frequently calling him a fraud. On CNN Wednesday night, King continued hammering Cruz, telling Anderson Cooper that despite how much Cruz may view himself as a conservative folk hero the majority of the country is rallying behind, those Ive spoken to think hes crazy.
King likened this to the Charge of the Light Brigade and said Cruz is a kamikaze pilot, ultimately finding his tactics to be destructive to the Republican party. He continued to call Cruz a fraud and a medicine man selling goods he knows are phony goods.
Cooper asked why King is taking the unusual step of being so critical of a member of his own party. King said he has no loyalty to Cruz, adding that Cruz was trying to intimidate Republican members of Congress in the past few months to vote his way with explicit threats of primaries.

This thigh rash. This piece of crap who wanted to arm terrorists in Syria. This nobody from New York who is considered a defense expert for some reason. He has to go. For all of McJuan of La Mancha's disgusting treachery, he doesn't usually go into the Democrat lows of almost comical ad hominem. Peter King called Ted Cruz a "terrorist". This is the kind of BS we expect from Nazi Pelosi!
He whines about the "explicit threats of primaries". Let's give him one! I want to see Peter King gone forever. He's not a conservative. He's not intelligent in the least. He is a rat, and I despise him.
Now is the time to begin building a foundation to liquidate the RINO caucus in the House and Senate. We have recruited top tier candidates against Lamar Alexander, Linda Gayham, and Bit9h McConnell. Unfortunately we'll have to wait until 2016 to remove McCain and Boozman, but the House critters are up every single time.
I don't care if we replace King with some go-along get-along type who keeps his mouth shut. That would be better than this blatantly destructive bomb-throwing leftist whackjob. This is WAR, and there will be primaries. The Cruz Missile Wing is in ascendance. F U PETER!
Peter King is completely unhinged.
Ok King, what is your plan?
Wasn’t he floating a presidential bid, Cruz has knocked him on his ass, now it’s revenge time.
King’s plan is to let ObamaCare happen
Wasnt he floating a presidential bid, Cruz has knocked him on his ass, now its revenge time.
The more I see, the more I think this presidential stuff must be a joke. He can’t honestly think he’ll have any support.
I just had an epiphany. Based on King’s record, if Ted Cruz is indeed a ‘terrorist’, shouldn’t King be supporting him?
Called his office earlier today
Reminded him of Reagan s eleventh commandment
And to shut his d——m mouth
He's "needed to go" since at least dating back to 1998 (when he worked his butt off to save Clinton during impeachment and demonize anyone who told the truth about Clinton's treason). Of course, every time freepers say it's the "last straw" with King, he's back the next primary season working the airwaves and beating his chest about how strongly pro-life and anti-illegal alien he is, and announcing he's going to investigate some mosque to fight Sharia law. The result is a bunch of freepers decide all is forgiven and begin to kiss his RINO butt again.
Seriously, after 15 years of this game, I can't see King going anywhere.
Not unusual at all, people in NY, AZ, and SC do it all the time with voter approval.
What’s his district like? I’m not too familiar with NY’s political layout.
rats never do this....no matter what, they stick together.....
What on earth is wrong with threatening a pol with a primary.
Well OK then. If Cruz does indeed run in 2016 there better be huge conservative representation in the voting booths and also in Cruz campaign offices from coast to coast. If he falters I don’t want to hear any more excuses from our side that the establishment did him in. If conservatives really are numerically superior in the GOP then the results better be there this time.
It sickens me to my stomach when I contemplate the fact that this pile of excrement wants to be considered for the Republican ticket in 2016.
I would literally vote for a turd I found alongside the road before I’d ever cast a ballot for this RINO.
If we had a real conservative on the ballot, I’m convinced we could win against Rove’s machine.
I don’t like to bad mouth Mr. King or call him names but I believe he eats S**t and barks at the moon.
I’d say the AntiChrist and his fellow DimoRats are scared they are going to lose the next throne to the GOP and are firing everything they have at him to stop it from happening. They’re afraid even their own kind are beginnng to question their judgment and horrible track record. It just means Cruz is the man for the job...
Rep Peter King is a Neo-con. He is also a lying sack of excrement. He needs to be primaried and like yesterday.
Ted Cruz Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, it is a high-volume ping list!
Exactly. It is one thing to disagree with Cruz but to do so in such a vocal way and to call him names. To go on talk shows and do so, to take to the Senate floor and call him names, it is disheartening and infuriating! The Rats just have to sit back and let these traitors do their work for them.
Curiously, it now holds the record for having gone the longest in NY state without having elected a Democrat (the last being far-left Allard Lowenstein in 1968, who lost for a second term in 1970 to Norman Lent, who was King’s predecessor). King is a huge embarrassment who picks and chooses which terrorists to support and which to condemn. I don’t call him “Peter King, Sinn Fein-NY” for nothing.
And the Rove-rat and the rest of their traitorous ilk wonder why we’ve abandoned this trash.
Well, at least you didn’t call him names.
This has to be some kind of deliberate, hide-in-the-bush strategy by the Repubs right? They can’t be bashing one of their own, especially the one with the balls.
A “conservative” Democrat could easily displace King given the redistricting where he inherited Israel’s turf.
Like a typical tool, he’s selling out to keep his job.
King, Boehner, Cantor etc. - do these people really think they are winning voters to their side? The left loves to see them attack conservatives but would never ever vote for them. I can’t see “moderates” flocking to them because they are spineless and treacherous. Conservatives are defecting in droves. Is being a hot shot in an ever shrinking party that important to them? If it is, they are succeeding. That “R” after their name doesn’t mean a thing to me anymore. I renounced voting the lesser of two evils last year.
Ted Cruz has more intellect in one fold of skin on his pinky finger than Peter King will ever have.
Much respect to those who will call a spade a spade and a SCUMBAG RINO a SCUMBAG RINO openly and without the hesitation and pansyass fears that someone might be offended.
THE JOKER (To Republicans)——
“Let’s wind the clocks back a year. These Democrats and Obama wouldn’t dare cross any of you. I mean, what happened? Did... did your balls drop off? Hmm?”
Ive never seen the GOP unravel like this..they have become the Democrat-Lite..at least with Dems you know why they want Obamacare, because its been the dream of progressives for centuries to control people’s healthcare, to have socialized medicine, to be the ones in control in determining who lives and who dies..so I get why they want it..but to see Republicans, who should be the OPPOSITE of what the Dems are, wanting Obamacare, wanting this disaster of a bill to actually happen, I just don’t get it..Sarah Palin is right, its time to create a 3rd party because if this is the new GOP whats the point anymore
King said he has no loyalty to Cruz, adding that Cruz was trying to intimidate Republican members of Congress in the past few months to vote his way with explicit threats of primaries.Way to go Senator Cruz!
Kink, er that is King, yer on the top of the list now I hope.
those Ive spoken to think hes crazy.
Funny, those I’ve spoken to think you’re a fat, POS career politician who’s worried about losing his power base.
Various excuses I've heard over the last 15 years everytime someone tries to primary that loudmouth piece-of-cr@p King:
- Yeah, I was mad at him for doing [inserted latest treasonous action] too, but then he started to [insert token conservative position he took] and we should look at the big picture.
- Impeachment was over a decade ago. Get over it. King has been a rock solid conservative since then. So he did [insert treasonous action A, B and C], I'm surprised. King is usually one of the good guys and with us when it counts.
- Okay, Peter King is not the best conservative, but he is from a BLUE STATE like New York. King is the best we're gonna get in a district like that. We should only focus on our RINOs in RED STATES. John Thune 4 President!!!
- King has a couple flakey positions, sure, but he's a straight shooter. We need more Republicans with SPINE like him. He's one of the good guys leading the fight against terrorism.
- So you only support Republicans if they pass your 100% purity test?
- Yeah, the cozy relationship he has with the IRA is disturbing, but it's an Irish thing I guess. Oh, and Bill Clinton... same thing... their ancestors are both from the same county in Ireland so that's why their chummy. King is naive about Clinton and Gerry Adams but he's not a traitor.
- You may not like him, but the bottom line is that King is a pro-life Republican in New York, representing a very liberal Democrat district. Who do YOU have that could WIN a district like that?!
- King is only anti-gun and slams other Republicans in public because he HAS TO in order to please his constituents. He is just doing what he needs to get elected. In private, King has always been a very conservative pro-life Catholic.
- But King had a hearing on TV where he went after illegal aliens!! You have to give him credit for that!! King is soooo awesome!!
- You don't like Peter King, we get it. The Democrats control New York, he'll be gone next election cycle anyway, they're losing a congressional seat and he's the only Republican left in Long Island. No need to primary him, this is his last term.
- I am really shocked that King would [insert latest treasonous action]. I don't know what's gotten in to him. King has ALWAYS been reliable before, we shouldn't judge for this one action. He'll come to his senses.
I thought he showed promise awhile back when when he criticized Islamic terrorism explicitly, and even the WTC mosque - but for him to openly attack Cruz, when all he had to do was shut up - it really makes you wonder about which side he’s on.
Thanks also for the Sinn Fein reminder.
You’re right. No matter what, Rats stick together. RINO’s are disgusting backstabbers.
I bet he’s out of Congress in 2015. See #26 above.
Special deals for him, his family, and his staff
(which grows with payoffs and sex favors)
while he imposes ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE/DeathPanels
Anyone who listens to Peter King talk can easily realize that he is a blithering idiot who is very full of himself.
That’s quite a compilation. Yep, think I have seen all of those at some time or another.
We have to remember that a New York Republican is just a Democrat whose dues lapsed.
One more reason I’ll vote for a democrat or stay home before I’d vote for “republicans” like King. Send them to the trash bin of history even if it takes helping the democrats in the short term.
Funny, the same thing was said about Jesus.
Not at all comparing Cruz with Jesus, but the attitude of these darkened minds to true light.
If the establishment doesn’t support our nominee, no matter who it is, we won’t win. The numbers simply aren’t there. Same is ture I’m either party at any time.
I’m making a mental note. The next time anyone here defends this psycho-lib, I’m calling them on it.
I can understand some people can give examples of a situation where it would be better to keep he status quo because so-and-so votes with us 1% of the time, but King is such a net negative, he is indefensible. He is a Krispy Kreme. Another frozen yogurt trying to make a name for himself.
In calling Ted Cruz a terrorist, he is in effect, calling middle America the same thing. This east coaster needs to be rollercoasted to the unemployment line, stat!
Primary this RINO!!!! I can’t believe Fox has this cretin on fairly often and he is a NY liberal masquerading as a Republican.
Two words ---> Ronald Reagan!
Looks like a socio-psychopath as well. Good Riddance!
