    In response to A_Concerned_Citizen's comment:

     

    Rep. Peter King (R-NY) tells Sen Ted Cruz (R-TX) to shut the heck up and mind his own business.

     

    Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) railed against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and House Republicans on Thursday for pushing a continuing budget resolution aimed at defunding Obamacare, saying a government shutdown is not an option.

    King argued on CNN that if the Republican budget resolution passes the House and fails in the Democrat-controlled Senate, it may actually help ease the partisan divide.

    “I would just say if anything good comes from all of this, when Ted Cruz and Rand Paul or Mike Lee fail in the Senate next week, maybe finally we Republicans will have ended their influence,” King said.

    “We as House Republicans should stop letting Ted Cruz set our agenda for us,” King continued. “He should stay in the Senate, keep quiet. If he can deliver on this, fine. If he can’t, he should keep quiet from now on and we shouldn’t listen to him.”



    ACC,

    I had to read this THREE times to be sure I got it.

    Basically King is the hypocite of the week. He rallies against Cruz earlier this week then later says all of the above the above.

    But he also says if Cruz can deliver on this, fine. Hypocrite.

    King also gives the term "mixed messages" new meaning.

    Pols like King are why Advil was invented.

    Meanwhile, the braindead lemming Democrats like pathetic Sen Markey never ever dissent, but vote exactly how they are instructed ...they dont represent their voters, but are Pelosi poodles...and Dingy Harry's soldiers... 

    Tax, spend and grow their Nanny State God of Government, putting unsustainable debt on our children and grandchildren...

    Democrats...Party of Government, no dissent allowed..

    The dynamic is changing. It's no longer Republican vs Democrat, the true battle is between statist and classical liberal. You either believe in investing power in the government or in each individual citizen. You can't be both.

    No, and I don't have time to try to explain it to you. These concepts are much bigger than a simple budget fight, they're about how to run a society. These are the things that the founders cared passionately about but, since then, have gotten lost in petty politics.

    CLC,

    Due respect, but how is your post really related to the thread? The thread is not about no dissent allowed but about King trying to have it both ways. That is why I called him a hypocrite in this situation.

    King appears to be trying to muffle a fellow party member (Cruz) yet also states if Cruz's tactics work out then his dissent was okay. 

    This is completely idiotic IMO....or as the thread is titled, "The circular firing squad is now complete.".
