Peter King's new goal: Take down Ted Cruz

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.”

In the run up to 2016 after the electorate has had an opportunity to see what a freaking disaster Obiecare is they will look around and see who stood to fight the good fight and who didn’t. You, Mr King will be found wanting.

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.

I wish people would really go after him. Donate to the democrat if we have to. People like him are more of an enemy than Pelosi.

I can’t say what I think of this piece of garbage, because I like posting on FR.

Peter King had better be prepared to live in the world he leaves us.

Looks to me that King is a very demented and dangerous politician for some reason. I suspect his reasons are as much pseudo conservative as jealousy over a younger persons showing or daring to make a difference in USA politics.

Hopefully, someone will get copies of King’s NSA/IRS/FBI files and post them on a protected site for a full review of this vile man.

Excellent! I believe that says it all...

Rethink the strategy of a primary challenger... Save the cash and vote for the rat... Let it be KNOWN that if you act like a rat and attack a conservative, you’ll be replaced with a rat...

Even though PK may vote like a Repub, you know he’s working his a$$ off behind the scenes to undermine guys like Cruz...

Peter King had better be hoping that Cruz is not God’s man for these times.

Gee...

Wouldn’t it be nice to see this Reprobate piece of sh*t work so hard to take down the Democrats... instead of one of OURS...

I hope the folks in New York make it their life’s MISSION to remove this assclown from office at the earliest opportunity.

At the very least, they should be melting his telephone lines.

“And we just can’t have national Republicans criticizing the system.”

What an idiot. Can you say establishment Republican?

Peter King is a perfect example of what is wrong with the Republican party today.

>> I say let’s TAKE DOWN Peter King in the next election. I would VOTE for the Democrat.

After redistricting, King inherited a good portion of Steve Israel’s (D) turf. King is positioning himself politically as a Democrat while thumbing his nose at the Republican constituents I gather to keep his seat. His behavior is despicable.

Peter King also tried to get Mark Levin off the air.
