Peter Kings Goes Off on Conservatives

from Newsmax:

Republicans can’t allow the primary defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to open the door for the “Ted Cruzes and the Rand Pauls to take over” the GOP, Rep. Peter King said.

Cantor’s defeat in Virginia’s Republican primary Tuesday to economics professor Dave Brat sent shock waves through political circles. Brat walked away with the primary win with 55.5 percent of the vote to Cantor’s 45.5 percent. Polls leading into the election showed Cantor with a healthy lead over Brat.

King told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” the approach of fellow Republican Sen. Cruz of Texas tarnished the party’s brand when he led the shutdown of the government in October. King said the “overwhelming majority of the country” thought lawmakers were “crazy” and “irresponsible” to have allowed it to happen.

King warned that the politics of the more conservative GOP party members such as Cruz and Sen. Paul of Kentucky would be detrimental to the GOP because he claimed they did not represent conservative views.

  1. The rinos just don’t get it. Imagine saying that conservatives like cruz aren’t conservative. And King thinks he himself is? Ha!

  2. What authority does the Republicans have to use against the will of the people?
    It is clear that we need to clean not only House but the senate as well. The very words spoken ” Cant allow” is a warning sign that these politicians no longer serve the people. We must move to restore control or we will loose our republic.
    At this moment we have a choice but with the loss of this seat the republicans and Democrats will double down and try changing the rules so they will retain power. Clearly if changes do not start our options for peaceful solutions are gone. Time to ask if you want your children involved in the destruction of America for they will bring the war to the people. Even now they prepare by providing tools of war to the police and they buy millions of rounds of ammo and prepare camps to house and detain people. i see the paths taken that mirror those of Germany. One only need compare to see what is happening. We have a god given right to change our government in peace or not is your choice.
