Congressman Peter King (R-NY) understands that should a man like Senator Ted Cruz gain leadership he will eventually support term limits and repealing the 17th Amendment – huge threat to Rep. Peter King’s career. In the most appalling attack from the GOP on the GOP, Peter King claims Cruz supporters have called his office and and said “vile,” “obscene” things.
“I’m not saying Ted Cruz is responsible for all his supporters, but he has tapped into a dark strain here in the American political psyche here, and again, the most obscene, profane stuff you can imagine all from people who say they support the Constitution,” King said. “I think what we have to do is reach out to his people and let them know that they’re following a false leader here.”
The “dark” stains “in the American psyche” are northeastern and northwestern politicians and every Democrat in power who have led us to this terrible place. It’s enough to ruin a beautiful vacation.
I believe King is lying. If he had such phone calls, they would be few, but I can believe that people were madder than hell and didn’t mind saying so. I’ll remind King that he has been in office since 1993 and ObamaCare has been law since December 2009. King has not done a single significant thing in four years to repeal or ObamaCare. Yes, he has voted, but he hasn’t been vocal, hasn’t stirred public passions. Cruz was sworn-in in January and shone a harsh light on ObamaCare. This law is too terrible for Congress to abide by. Isn’t that a clue. KING HAS DONE NOTHING PRODUCTIVE. I am so disgusted by the GOP.
