(CNSNews.com) - If Congress passes legislation deferring a decision on the debt ceiling and stopgap government funding, Republicans should anticipate another crisis in six to eight weeks, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said on Monday.
"We have to anticipate Ted Cruz is going to try to do this again. Ted Cruz and 30 or 40 people in the House. And we have to start going after him by name. I've been doing it all along. I wish I had more company on it."
King said "we just can't have" Republicans or Ted Cruz second-guessing the final outcome of the current stalemate.
"What's going to happen, months from now, after this is resolved, he's going to say, 'Republicans were on the edge of winning. But they lost their nerve in the end, and they caved in. This time it's going to work.' I think he's going to rewrite history. And we have to make sure he doesn't do it. And it's really time to speak out against him. And also again, there's about 30 or 40 (conservatives) in the House who are going to go with him. We can't let John Boehner and Eric Cantor be put into this position again. They told us in mid-September this would be a disaster."
King said Republicans all over the country are going to suffer because of what Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has done: "I don't care where you're from, what Ted Cruz is doing is affecting the entire country."
King said "there's no doubt that Democrats are winning" right now, but he also said that President Obama needs to "play a more aggressive role" in bringing the two sides together. - See more at: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/rep-peter-king-we-have-start-going-after-ted-cruz-name#sthash.GiHprG4W.dpuf
I guess if youre too cowardly to go after the commie RAT thugs, you might as well go after Republicans.
I don’t know what Kingrat is talking about, he and all the other demonrats have been going after Cruz by name from day one. And what do mean cowardly? By God this man has the balls of a amoeba!
They got somethin’ big on that Boy....plus I think he quit his Meds due to Ozombie Care!
LOL...!! I love my own jokes!
(sad that.. but whatever!)
Can’t P. King be holed below the water line?
Peter King is not being blackmailed. The NSA doesn't have a file on him.
He's just a plain ole ordinary POS traitor. He wants to keep his freebies. He sees the Cruz faction closing in and so he's running to what he thinks is safety -- the MSM and the socialist Demoncrats. Nothing more complicated than that.
Love your interpretation of the bubble boy!! PULL THE PLUG
King will likely lose his seat to a Democrat.
If Ted Cruz is the leader of the tea party, Peter King is the leader of the RINOs... and we definitely should go after the leader of the herd by name!
F U P K !
I’ve said over 90 percent of the GOP elected officials are fake and phony conservatives and King confirms that with his estimate of who the “troublemakers” are.....
King comes across as a shriveled, angry, bitter man.
The fresh, ‘we’re here for the American people by way of the Constitution’ approach that Senator Cruz presents, might sell a whole lot better.
That’s what my people are counting on.
Sounds to me like Pete is putting out a contract on Cruz.
Mr. King, you can’t hold Senator Cruz’ coat. You’re an embarrassment, he’s a source of pride for this Texan.
Saying what I really think about you would get me suspended from this site by new power-hungry censors who had fun deleting old threads while the owner was in the hospital.
He’s a homo.
Go to hell King, you have lost all of my respect!!
Nope. Just bought and paid for.
Exactly. Do these RINOs ever go after any Dems?
“I think he’s going to rewrite history. And we have to make sure he doesn’t do it.”
No, he’s trying to STOP those of you who are attempting to rewrite the history that’s important to the survival of this country — namely the Constitution. And the fact that you want to stop him tells us all we need to know.
Cruz needs to put a restraining order on this psycho.
