Rep. Peter King: Ted Cruz And Rand Paul Are RINOs

REP. PETER KING (R-NY): Andrea, this is the strategy of Ted Cruz and going back to mid-September, I said that Ted Cruz was a fraud, that there was a dead-end to this policy and it made no sense to follow it. John Boehner also told us in early September that it would be the wrong thing to do to shut down the government in an attempt to defund Obamacare. Unfortunately, we have three or four dozen Republicans in the House, Cruz Republicans, who basically threatened to bring the House down if John Boehner did not pursue this policy. John knew it was not doing to work, but he felt he had no choice. I understand his position.

Maybe you’re right, Peter. The conservatives perhaps should be called RINOs... that, of course, until they found their OWN party.

I suppose he’s right in the narrow sense that conservatives aren’t “real Republicans” so the logic would then suggest that real conservatives should run under their own banner and let the Republican Party die a natural death as a sort of halfway house for socialist-Democrats.

Why bother having a “sort of Democrat” party when there’s already a Democratic Party with all the bells and whistles of big government socialism?

Might as well pull the plug on that and run candidates under a Conservative Party banner, and make sure it really is conservative and not CINO (the Canadian or UK version of RINO).

King is being dishonest. He harbors the desire to run for president in 2016, even though his chances as a Congressman are nil. It’s his ego that’s getting in the way as he stakes out the “moderate” ground and paints Cruz & Paul as “extremists.” All this mock outrage is just political theater. Traitor.

“We cannot allow our party to be taken over by the likes of Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.”

I wholeheartedly agree! They should both leave the gop wing of the uniparty and start or join a different political party. I think they’d be happier to leave Rep. King with the stinking corpse of the gop.

He had a plan you moron, but you were too freaking stupid to figure it out.

It is what every good prosecutor does when he has a number of witnesses who refuse to budge. They turn the heat up. And they keep turning it up until they turn on each other.

Please Pete. Go away. Just STHU and go away.

And we have to cut this guy off now.

There is the money quote. Destroy Ted Cruz before he destroys us.

Peter King becomes John McCain minus the purported military "credentials." Wonderful, innit?

Peter King, please get back on your meds, one more ass-hat in congress is exactly what the American people do not need.

You may only speak when the American tax payers jerks your chain, until then, sit down, shut your pie hole, and remain silent while the adults (Cruz, Lee, and Paul) stand up for the American people and put an end to this out of control government!

King was also out front defending the NSA spy-on-everyone-all-the-time programs.

If he likes 0bamacare and the surveillance state so much, and the Constitution so little, then I know a party that would welcome him with open arms.

Amazing what happens to a person who has delusions of being President. Pete, how do you expect to win even your next primary when you throw away half your voters?

Sadly, I agree with King.
I'd hazard a guess that 80% of the Republican Congressmen/women are members of the same 'Big Government' party as the Democrats. They run as Republicans to get elected in conservative districts.
Americans that favor limited Government and seek the follow the Constitution and Bill of Rights are a rarity. So, by that definition Cruz is a 'RINO'.

I think somebody in the GOP majority in the house should call him a democrat to his face with the camera’s rolling. King will turn red faced and go into hysterics and have a nervous fit... Right on cue.

RNC,Please advise Peter King to join a party more to his liking.Just make sure its the Democrat(Communist)Party.

He’ll be very happy there and he’ll still keep his title.

Why did Obama refuse to sign the bill funding the government without Obamacare ? Because he knew it is a disaster for the American people and the Congress would never fund it.

Rep. Peter King: Ted Cruz And Rand Paul Are The Real RINOs (video)

This guy is as insane as the treasonous Democrats.

King just doesn't get it. What alternate dimension is he in?

"RINO" until recently, defined politicians with an (R) after their name, who behaved identically to the no-limit spend Democrats, and no longer the conservative republican (with a small "r") constitutional, fiscally prudent party.

THAT IS NO LONGER TRUE.

"RINO" has been redefined now, for those who are finally, and seriously fighting for traditional, fiscally responsible Republican governance.

If that redefinition is true, RINO is suddenly a good label.

For once, Peter King is right.

Ron Paul and Ted Cruz are libertarians, which is exactly what is needed in this environment and why they are enjoying so much success and fear from their opponents.
