Posted on 10/15/2013 10:37:37 AM PDT by SoConPubbie
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., is no fan of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
The New York congressman made it clear on Mondays "Morning Joe" that he will work to stop Cruz and his allies in their tracks.
Ive 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 theres 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 theres going to be another one of these in six weeks or eight weeks or three months whatever it is, King said. And we just cant have national Republicans criticizing the system.

Isnt 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, hes going to say, Republicans were on the verge of winning, but they lost their nerve at the end and they caved in this time its going to work. King said.
And [Cruz] is going to rewrite history and we have to make sure he doesnt do it, King said. Its really time to speak out against him.
Hey little Peter, you’re going to lose.
Would be quite hilarious to see what King owuld have to say id Ted Cruz was elected President.
Hopefully King would get swept out in the Cruz tidal wave.
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.
I agree. Take him down. If not for McCain, this guy would be my number 1 target!
King is such an assclown. I wish he would go ahead and officially join the democrat party.
Primary this SOB!
Petey needs to be primaried.
Born in Buffalo. Left 20 years ago. This is why.
the funny thing is, the first half a dozen times I saw king on tv, I actually thought he was a democrat.
Time for you to change parties, Mr. King. You’re no more than NE liberal/progressive. FUPK! Quisling!
Mr. King is a pauper in spirit and very possessed by evil envy.
If these RINOs spent 1/100th of the energy they spend fighting conservatives on Democrats, this country would be in much better shape.
And we just cant have national Republicans criticizing the system.
Says it all right there
It's working. Cruz will be there for at least 5 more years. Get used to it.
King takes slow and deliberate aim at his foot.
Just switch parties vichy Republican.
