[Peter] King [(R-N.Y.)] blasts 'morons' in Republican Party
The Hill ^ | 02-12-2014 | Mario Trujillo

Posted on 02/12/2014 11:05:35 AM PST by PaulCruz2016

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) defended Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday after the House passed a clean debt-limit bill that raised the ire of conservatives.

King branded as “morons” many conservatives in the GOP caucus who consistently oppose any effort to pass the debt limit, asserting they are the same faction that led to the government shutdown last year.

“This is the same group that back in September and October went into a government shutdown that everybody knew was a disaster,” King said on MSNBC. “They ended up looking like morons following Ted Cruz over the cliff.”

King had been one of the most vocal critics of the strategy that led to the government shutdown last year. He said the Speaker tried everything to get appease his members Tuesday.

However, many of them didn’t have the "guts" to vote on any proposal to raise the borrowing limit, King said.

“John tried everything,” he said. "I was so disgusted with people in the Republican conference. So many got up and said they knew they had to pass the debt ceiling, but they didn’t have the guts to vote for it. And they wouldn’t vote for anything. And that’s why he had to do what he did.”

To: Paine in the Neck

The 5 year long, lopsided power struggle continues on the now shredded Congressional Field of Battle in the District of Corruption, along the muddy banks of De Nile River.

The simple goal of the much-praised Left Team, also called “Democrats,” as stated by their team captain B. Hussein Soetoro-Obama is to “Fundamentally change the United States of America.”

The multiple, and very complex goals of the Right Team, as yet unstated but consistently acted out by Special Wrongway RINO Defense Squad Co- Captains John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy and Pete Roskam is to DO NOTHING that will irritate the Left Team.

The Right Team is also known by the name “Republicans,” a nostalgic name from a long-past time when there was “Liberty and Justice for all.”

The Left Team has a single Offense Squad with All Democrat Stars from many Schools of Higher Government Learning, to name just a few:
* Department of Gestapo Justice, (DOGJ);
* National Spy On U., (NSOU);
* Interrogate Ream Sue U., (IRSU)
* Reid Barrycade Senate Universal, (RBSU).

The Left Team always runs down the Congressional Field of Battle together, and has been admiringly nicknamed “ District of Corruption, United.”

The Right Team has never allowed the many Constitutional Offense Squads onto the Congressional Field of Battle, due to well-timed and strongly worded objections from many RINO luminaries such as Loser Emeritus, “Wacko Birds” McCain.

After a recent weekend, group-hug, bonding session, many caucus meetings, and private deal-making, Lead Co-Captain John Boehner picked up the ball yesterday and ran down the Congressional Field of Battle to score a goal for the Left Team.

Thanks to the RINO Defensive actions of “Wrongway” Boehner and his ‘gang of 27,’ an additional 1 to 4, (nobody is really sure), TRILLION dollars will be added to the National Poverty Debt Game Clock.

Co-Captain “Wrongway” Boehner was assisted by 27 Members of the Special Wrongway RINO Defense Squad.

Needless to say, “Wrongway” Boehner and his ‘gang of 27’ made no contact with any of the Left Team Members.

Time will tell if donations to the Special Wrongway RINO Defense Squad, (SWRDS), will increase or decrease before the Championship Game in November, 2014.

The Republican party is a joke. I respect the communists Democratic Party more than the Republican Party only because they do something and always win. What a joke America has become. Maybe we need a new party after all. If the Republican party gets nothing done what have we lost.

I think that it is time to come to terms with the fact that conservatives and Republicans have vastly different visions for the future of America.

The only question is what to do about that difference.

Both Conservatives and Liberals want to change the world.

Conservatives understand that real change comes by example, not by telling people what to think or do. We tend to trust people, by a leap of faith, that they will act in accordance with their self interest which in turn benefits society as a whole. So long as there is transparency and a known set of rules.

Liberals, on the other hand, have no faith in mankind. They don’t trust people and as a result they find it necessary to tell people what they should think and do.

Liberals have taken the reigns in this effort to “make the world better”. They have figured out that there are now enough people that actually do want to be told what to think.

Meanwhile, conservatives hope and pray that we can just slow down this liberal Juggernaut. Slow it down long enough for reality to set in. Long enough for a critical mass of thinking and thoughtful people to have a positive affect on our culture.

It reminds me of this song;

Everywhere is freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity
Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till there are no rich no more

I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you

A Media poll is viewed by most respondents as a memory test on current events.

The respondents are given questions with fixed answers, (yes, no, uncertain, for, against, important, less important, etc).

The Media pollsters know that Americans want to please, and thus phrase the question in such a way as to draw out that American desire.

For example:
1.) “Do you agree that Most Americans want to invest more in their children’s quality of learning?”

2.) “Do you agree with most Americans that the Trillions of tax payer dollars have ruined our Nation’s Public Schools and Universities?”

are two questions designed to encourage the respondent to agree with “most Americans” and elicit the desired “Yes” response, with opposing conclusions.

Reid refused to Compromise. Obama refused to compromise.

Boehner compromised so often that his tan turned the same color as his eyes.

The low information voter has only heard that the Left Stream Media blames Boehner,.

Ergo, another slam dunk for the Left.

We’ve known for awhile there was a leak in the House who was telling Pelosi exactly what the GOP had in mind.
I suspect Peter King is that leak.
