Peter King's new goal: Take down Ted Cruz
WashingtonExaminer.com ^ | OCTOBER 14, 2013 AT 12:15 PM | ASHE SCHOW

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., is no fan of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

The New York congressman made it clear on Monday’s "Morning Joe" that he will work to stop Cruz and his allies in their tracks.

“I’ve been speaking out against Ted Cruz and this whole crazy movement since it started,” King told MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski.

King also said he thought that “there’s no doubt that the Democrats are winning,” and that President Obama needed to play “a more aggressive role” in the negotiations to reopen the government and lift the debt ceiling.

King also warned that Cruz and his allies would pick another fight soon.

“We as Republicans have to anticipate there’s going to be another one of these in six weeks or eight weeks or three months — whatever it is,” King said. “And we just can’t have national Republicans criticizing the system.”

Isn’t it the Republican position to question the government?

“We have to anticipate Ted Cruz is going to try to do this again,” King said. “Ted Cruz, and 30 or 40 people in the House — and we have to start going after him by name.”

King claimed that Cruz will try to “rewrite history” when his movement loses.

“What will happen is months from now, after this is resolved, he’s going to say, ‘Republicans were on the verge of winning, but they lost their nerve at the end and they caved in — this time it’s going to work.’” King said.

“And [Cruz] is going to rewrite history and we have to make sure he doesn’t do it,” King said. “It’s really time to speak out against him.”

"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

 

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

 

"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792

 

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

 

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

OK, Peter King has just put a real NICE and BIG Bullet’s Eye on his back!

I say let’s TAKE DOWN Peter King in the next election. I would VOTE for the Democrat. We don’t need TRAITORS in our side of the fence. If I have an ENEMY, I want to see that ENEMY for what he is. Give me the RAT instead!

Peter King couldn’t take Obama’s daughters. He’s no match for a statesman like Ted Cruz.

Run, Pete, run! I want you to get crushed in a debate with Cruz

>> OK, Peter King has just put a real NICE and BIG Bullet’s Eye on his back! I say let’s TAKE DOWN Peter King in the next election. <<

Freepers have been saying that since Peter King demonized any conservative who went after Clinton in 1998. Then King works the talk shows when the primary election rolls around, and beats his chest about how pro-life and anti-illegal alien he is, and promises that he alone will investigate Sharia law and locate radical Muslims in the U.S.

The result is a bunch of gullible conservatives decide all is forgiven and that we "need" King in Congress.

Call me cynical if I don't believe King's 326,764,325th example of his backstabbing treason will FINALLY convince conservatives to dump him..

“What will happen is months from now, after this is resolved, he’s going to say, ‘Republicans were on the verge of winning, but they lost their nerve at the end and they caved in — this time it’s going to work.’” King said.

“And [Cruz] is going to rewrite history and we have to make sure he doesn’t do it,” King said. “It’s really time to speak out against him.”

King: Any suggestion that Republicans could possibly win in a fight with Democrats must be squashed immediately!

Here’s the thing little peter, you’re a Rino without a horn, just an empty blow hard...

Cruz takes little peter king to leadership school but little peter won’t lead, can’t follow, and thrives on getting in the way.

Cruz is setting the standard, raising the bar far above self service, making integrity, honesty, boldness, character and sacrifice, once again the principles of leadership, he is quickly gaining the respect, confidence and loyalty from all those who wish to once again see a free republic.

That is what goads the inside-the-beltway Republicans. They like the system because it works for them, win or lose. They still get their turns at the money troughs. They still get the under-the-table lobbyist 'donations'. They still can play like they are opposition. And they can still have drinks with their friends from across the aisle after a hard day of partisanship.

Translation: Don't rock the boat! Cruz and the Tea Party are trying to rock the boat.

I have sent "missives" to Boehner and Cornyn. Just sent this to King:

Dear Mr. King, The stories that you think Ted Cruz is the enemy are troubling to say the least. It is that kind of circular firing squad mentality that has the Republican base in such disarray. Republicans are generally elected to champion conservative, Constitutional values and philosophies. You and many of your cohorts seem to think that your job is to kiss the rings of Harry Reid and Barrack Obama and to betray the faith and trust of the People at every turn. Your base is diminishing because you are so complicit in the Left's attempt to burn the Constitution and to subjugate the People. You make inane statements like, "ObamaCare is the law of the land" and exhort us to roll over for this monstrosity because you are too weak to oppose tyranny - who knows, maybe you consider yourself a moinor tyrant and feel superior to those who you swore to represent along with the Constitution. If something is "the law of the land" one can only trust those charged with enforcing it if they enforce ALL THE LAWS of the LAND. Why do you not care so much when Mr. Obama and Mr. Holder decide to enforce such laws selectively? The "Law of the Land" that is ObamaCare no longer resembles the law that was passed by trickery and obfuscation - the President has unilaterally modified it about 15 times and it is not the law that was passed. The "additions" to this "law", drafted by unelected "officials" dwarf the original monstrosity. Where is your sense of outrage about this? Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are what the Party and the People need - leaders who will stand tall against petty tyrants and work to the benefit of the People. When you get done sneering at a citizen's opinion, please reconsider your weaknesses and take the time to consider how you and other RINOs are betraying the People. I know it is a lot to ask, but, hey, that's what you are supposedly up "on high" to do. Sincerely, A Conservative citizen who wonders where the heck his country has gone.

Sorry King, you can't take Cruz out. We here in Texas sent him to disrupt business as usual, and to be a pain in the ass for liberals of both parties.

It's working. Cruz will be there for at least 5 more years. Get used to it.

The only reason King is attacking Cruz is to get the leftist/government-controlled media to love him.

Cruz is in the Senate. King is in the House. King's argument and vitriol should be directed at his colleagues in the House where Cruz may have influence, but no control.

Why isn't King attacking conservatives in the House who are standing against ObamaCare? Because he's too chicken to face them on the House floor every day, so he runs to the media. What a disgrace.

We should make the little king feel the heat.
