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.

Why do I suddenly visualize the ancient craw of of John McCain open wide, and PETER KING emerge from it, leaner, meaner,more politically “viable” as a “fresher” face, and even more craven and clueless?

“Time for you to change parties, Mr. King. You’re no more than NE liberal/progressive. FUPK! Quisling!”

I have to admit, I read your line wrong the first time. At first glance I read it as “time for you to change PANTIES, Mr King”

Then once I remembered what kind of squish he is, it really did seem fitting that he change panties.

““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.”

I wonder what principles King thinks Cruz is standing for..? Does King ever stand for anything or is he just a big-mouthed hired gun assassin for the Democrats.

Ted Cruz Isn’t The Problem With The Republican Party, He’s The Solution
RightWing News ^ | October 14, 2013 | John Hawkins

Posted on Monday, October 14, 2013 6:18:15 AM by SoConPubbie

Liberals have the Democrat Party, Establishment Republicans have the GOP and conservatives have no party that represents them in Washington.

Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of Republicans who say they’re conservative. There are even plenty of Republicans who will vote like conservatives when it doesn’t matter. But, how many conservatives are actually willing to fight for conservative principles the way Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi fight for liberal principles? In the House and Senate combined, there are a few dozen, tops and the establishment Republicans are incessantly bemoaning the fact that anyone stands up for conservatism.

So when Ted Cruz and Mike Lee pushed to defund Obamacare, grassroots conservatives embraced the idea. Most of them did so knowing full well that getting Obama to defund the Affordable Care Act was the longest of longshots. However, they also knew that there were and are plenty of other opportunities to be grasped.

That has certainly turned out to be so.

Obama has been telling the world he won’t negotiate while he punitively shuts down national parks, kicks old people out of their homes and blocks off veterans from memorials. Conservatives are energized by the fight. Every Democrat in the Senate has now gone on record as being in favor of Obamacare, saying it doesn’t need to be delayed and saying that they deserve an exemption from Obamacare that the rest of the public doesn’t get.

If this isn’t a winnable fight for the Republican Party, you have to wonder what a winnable fight would look like? If Obama publicly sacrificed a baby a Satan on Ted Kennedy’s birthday, would the public believe that the GOP was waging a war on children after listening to John Boehner and Mitch McConnell for 10 minutes?

Moreover, the one heavily skewed Wall Street poll that’s freaking squishy Republicans out isn’t telling the whole story. Barack Obama’s approval rating has dropped to 37% and his approval rate with independents is down to 16%. Barack Obama is the face of the Democrat Party and those are the kind of numbers that lead to political bloodbaths while dislike for Congress has sadly become the rule, not the exception. Moreover, there are still great opportunities to be had. How about funding the entire government, but insisting on removing the exemption for members of Congress and their staffs?

Let the Democrats tell the world that they’re willing to shut down the government to make sure that the American public supplements the cost of their Obamacare coverage. That’s a very winnable fight, but sadly, you have to suspect that a lot of Republicans would rather lose the political fight than lose the exemption they’re getting from the law. They might vote for it when they know the Democrats won’t agree, but actually winning on the issue? They’d prefer a half-hearted loss than a go for the throat win.

But instead, after some smart early maneuvers from the House, the GOP leadership team there has largely fallen silent. Meanwhile, Republicans in the Senate have been actively working with the Democrats to undermine the House. In addition, establishment mediocrities like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Haley Barbour, Devin Nunes, Grover Norquist, John Sununu, Bob Corker and the loathsome Peter King have been fighting tooth and nail against their real enemy: Grassroots champions like Ted Cruz who actually want to stand up for conservatives instead of corporations, fatcat donors and country club Republicans.

The problem with the Republican Party isn’t politicians like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee who actually believe in representing the people who sent them to DC, it’s the establishment Republicans who fight harder against conservatives than they’ll fight against the Democrats along with a GOP “leadership” that can’t talk, strategize or do much of anything except flounder around haplessly while they get their brains beaten in by the Democrats.

It’s all well and good to say, “The most important thing is to win more seats and then we’ll fight later.” The problem with that is we’ve already gone down that road during the Bush years and we found that the same people who don’t want to fight now, didn’t want to fight when we had the House, the Senate and the White House either. In fact, a big part of the reason why the GOP lost the House, the Senate and the White House was because Medicare Part D and more funding for the National Endowment for the Arts was their idea of what the GOP should be doing when it was in charge.

People hate the Republican Party right now — and they should. It doesn’t communicate well, it doesn’t do much outreach to groups that don’t vote for us, it doesn’t stand up for the values it supposedly believes in, it betrays its supporters on a regular basic and although it claims to be the adult party of small government, reduced spending and law and order, it doesn’t consistently stand up for those principles even in the minority. Liberals never have to question where the Democrats are on abortion, raising taxes or expanding government, so why should we never know if we can count on the GOP on gun control, illegal immigration and spending?

The road to recovery for the Republican Party starts with proving that it will fight aggressively for the principles it claims to believe in as opposed to being talking big and never backing it up. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee get that. If more Republicans in DC understood that, the GOP wouldn’t have lost the last presidential election because a few million members of its base stayed home.

King has been upset with Cruz since he didn’t vote on SANDY relief.
Cruz had reservations because of the PORK in the bill, not over the relief.
If King were a TRUE conservative, he could have actually written his own bill without the PORK, but, NO, he chose to slam CRUZ INSTEAD!

Go CRUZ, Go!

KING should be ASHAMED!

If it weren’t for the re-election of Tea Party governor Paul LePage in 2014 I wouldn’t have to even go and vote. I’m not voting for Susan Collins.

Instead of going DemocRAT Peter King decided to destroy the party before he leaves to ensure
a substantial power placement in the Party of current opposition.
