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.”

This is EXACTLY what a Represenative is supposed to do. They are hired to represent the voters who elected him or her, not defend the system or party. A Represenative is not hired as a marketing agent for the system.

Or as caretakers for the welfare state.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Peter King either doesn't understand this or he has just been in DC too long and has become too corrupted to see it.

They will be rewarded with emptying the drool pans.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
