Skip to comments.Republican congressman goes ballistic on Ted Cruz - "We have to cut this guy off now"
Posted on 10/12/2013 2:49:31 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Appearing on MSNBC on Friday, Congressman Peter King continued his epic verbal assault on Ted Cruz and, to a lesser extent, Rand Paul by describing the Texas Senator as a RINO (Republican in name only) and a fraud.
Speaking with MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell, King called the ongoing government shutdown the strategy of Ted Cruz and wondered aloud why more Republicans around the country didnt join me in denouncing Ted Cruz before the shutdown began. We cannot allow our party to be taken over by the likes of Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, King continued, describing Cruz and Paul as isolationists and RINOs who dont represent traditional Republican principles.

.....The [White House] meeting also showed that Senate Republicans are not in the loop on what the House is negotiating, as they spent much of the time pressing Obama for details about the Houses plan.
House Republicans have put forward a plan to boost the debt limit, but are demanding fiscal negotiations with the president on ending the shutdown. The precise details of the plan are under wraps.
The uncertainty of the talks is frustrating Senate Republicans, who want the crisis resolved as soon as possible......"
This guy is nuts. Please NY Republicans who live in his district do the right thing and take him out in the next primary.
We cannot allow our party to be taken over by the likes of Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, King continued.
WE NEED THE PARTY RETAKEN BY CONSERVATIVES LIKE CRUZ. King is a pansy.
Fu and shove it.
We get a chance to primary you, then it’s off with you.
What you wish for will come to you.
Term limits now!
“Appearing on MSNBC on Friday, Congressman Peter King continued his epic verbal assault on Ted Cruz...”
Sounded like King was on the campaign trail.
Let him say what he wants.
The GOP is dead. Committed suicide.
You Freepers better back off if you know what's good for you!
Hey Peatah, ESAD.
Sad but true. However it was assisted suicide, from the LSM.
Peter King is a MEAN MEAN GUY.
From your lips to God’s ears.
Cruz must be over the target cause he sure is taking a lot of flak
“.....The [White House] meeting also showed that Senate Republicans are not in the loop on what the House is negotiating, as they spent much of the time pressing Obama for details about the Houses plan.”
If this is true (not saying it isn’t and wouldn’t surprise me if it is, but I take a lot of what I read from the LSM with a grain of salt), then heads should roll in the leadership in the Senate (are you listening McConnell???).
After the Pubbies in the House have been holding fairly firm (except for a few Dem/RINOS like King of NY) and Cruz, Lee and Paul have been fighting - why the heck isn’t the Pubbie leadership of both houses getting together to discuss a plan??? What kind of strategery is that?
“The uncertainty of the talks is frustrating Senate Republicans, who want the crisis resolved as soon as possible......”
I think they are generalizing on Republicans want this resolved - they should change that to RINOs want it resolved: McCain, Graham, Ayotte, Johnson, Corker, Cornyn, Flake, Collins - probably missing a few more.
I suspect that Cruz, Lee, Sessions (AL), and to a lesser extent Rubio and Paul wouldn’t mind continuing the fight. IIRC there were 14 Senate Republican patriots that voted No on cloture.
How many times has NY voted for the Republican presidential nominee, you dope? Those who haven’t seen their state in the GOP column in decades should have very little influence in the party.
One meeting with 0bama, and some players are running around like chickens with their head cut off.
GO BACK to NORMAL order, defund & Delay 0care, or at least compel 0bama and the WH staff to register in 0bama care.
Then go home and relax. If the US Defaults, better now than next year
Heh....too bad that the House controls the national purse and not the Senate.
Establishment Republicans sound more and more like Democrats, especially with his name calling and hysterical claims. I think that King is talking about himself when he says RINO.
