Rep. Peter King says he’ll jump off bridge if Ted Cruz is nominated
Obviously Rep. Peter King never heard Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment, “Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican.
King, R-N.Y., appeared on CNN’s “The Situation Room” Monday to give his opinion on Ted Cruz’s announcement that he would be seeking the Republican nomination for president in 2016 election.
He wasn’t flattering.
“We need intelligent debate in the country. Ted Cruz may be an intelligent person, but he doesn’t carry out an intelligent debate,” King told host Wolf Blitzer.
“He oversimplifies, he exaggerates and he basically led the Republican Party over the cliff in the fall of 2013. He has shown no qualifications, no legislation being passed, doesn’t provide leadership and he has no real experience. So, to me, he is just a guy with a big mouth and no results.” SOURCE
Jump you egotistical bastard… JUMP! Do a flip on the way down so there can be some added entertainment value.
As I said in yesterday’s post, Ted Cruz is in the race for President; “Ted Cruz may not be perfect and before this is over we’re going to have a lot of frogs in this race before we crown a prince, but Cruz deserves a chance to have his voice heard and his ideas given FAIR consideration, or we go with the GOP status quo and lose again.”
I am NOT a Republican and I have NO PROBLEM with speaking ill OF a Republican, I am an America 1st Conservative, I am not a Democrat, I am not a TEA Party person, I am that which the GOP, Dems and TEA Party fear; a reasonably well educated, gun owning Texas redneck that doesn’t need to be told what to do and I damned sure WILL NOT be talked down to by these Republicans that think they have the answer to all the problems facing this nation.
King criticized Cruz and Rand Paul, who will presumably announce his candidacy soon, as “counterfeit conservatives,” and said that Cruz would have to undergo a “complete transformation” in order to get his endorsement.
I’m pretty sure Ted Cruz isn’t going to completely revamp himself in order to gain an endorsement from one of the people in Washington that is a part of the problem.
RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) like Pete King are afraid of Ted Cruz, they are even more afraid of him than the Democrats are. People like Ted Cruz don’t *go along to get along* like so many of the long-serving of both parties but particularly those in the GOP.
I heard entrenched Congressional members speaking badly of Cruz while they talked DOWN to me and belittled anyone that even remotely spoke well of Cruz. Needless to say, I cut ties with that individual.
If the GOP establishment is attacking Ted Cruz this hard one day into his run for the Oval Office you have to KNOW, the GOP is quaking in their Gucci loafers because Cruz is a force to be reckoned with and will NOT be coopted into the mainstream GOP.
Is Ted Cruz perfect? Well, NO, he’s not but if he can get Pete King to jump off a bridge then that is a really good reason to support Ted Cruz.
