Peter King: ‘Vile’ phone calls by Ted Cruz allies
Politico, by Tal Kopan

Original Article

Posted By:janjan, 9/26/2013 10:23:59 AM

Rep. Peter King, who has pulled no punches in criticizing Ted Cruz, said Thursday that supporters of the Texas senator have been bombarding his office with “vile” phone calls. The New York Republican has called Cruz a fraud for his calls to defund Obamacare, and said the senator’s campaign this summer to get the House to pass a government funding bill that defunds the health care law led to some offensive phone calls to King’s office.

Comments:
Peter King calls Ted Cruz a ´false leader´. Who, Mr. King, do you consider a ´true leader? It certainly is not you, Boehner, McConnell or McCain. We are not interested in your opinions or your lectures. We are busy taking back control of the GOP so choose. Get on the bus or go lay under it.

Sen King, You were once admired. Now that you´ve been outed and show your true self, much to my dismay, you now gain nothing but my distaste.

Oh poor thing...vile phone calls. As if ALL of us, on BOTH sides of political debates don´t have to deal with "vile" calls and posts every day.

If that is the only way one can defend their positions, then they´re out of ammunition.

Even if Obamacare were idealogically sound, it should still be postponed due to the technical problems it presents.

Everyone should be able to recognize this.

The comments to this article were vile. I would just remind some of the adage that one attracts more with honey than vinegar. The TEA Party proved that, even though the MSM still lied about us. Fight fire with fire in passion, but stick to civility. One thing Liberals corner the market on is ugliness, let´s not stoop to that level. I wouldn´t put it pat the lib bloggers to be the ones calling and getting us blamed.

Republican Senator Boozman of Arkansas said his staff experienced the same thing.
The nasty calls were mostly from non Arkansas
residents , astro turf tactics
from " out of state activists " .
Sounds just like the gutter tactics of Obama´s OFA.
There´s no reason to curse and berate the people answering the phones .
The Heritage Foundation used to be a respected conservative think tank.
Until DeMint took it over and turned it into a Thug Tank.

Authentic Tea Party citizens are the unlikeliest of Americans to resort to profanity or threatening words, which are just not in these peoples´ natures. These "vile" calls appear to be Alinskyite misdirection, probably at the behest of the Left, who have been known to run false flag operations in an attempt to drive a wedge between Republican factions, particularly for the "benefit" of excitable, temperamental, middle-of-the-road Republicans like the credulous Peter King, whose normal face color is angry crimson.

Excuse me, but like it or not, we´re in a war here. No, not the kind with bullets and bombs, I doubt that anyone truly wants that.
But consider this, those of you that cannot stomach a few crass or "vile" remarks, then I ask what side you´d have taken when the treatment in the 1770s was tar and feathers? Or worse.
I don´t care what Peter King thinks at this point. If he´s too effete to handle some harsh and ´vile´ criticism, then perhaps he should quit. These are trying times that require real leadership. The status quo is not going to cut it anymore. To hell with the manicured elitists that decide how we, the people should behave. I will not stand by with the sort of tyranny that exists today.

I agree with #20, I suspected right off the bat that it was not real Tea Party callers. Additionally, if we are going to discuss disappointment, the lion share goes to the RNC and the Establishment Republicans. They have continually lied to their base using all types of excuses to cover up their misdeeds. Then they sabotage any true conservative candidates and then blame the Tea Party for the loss. Worst of all they the gall to come back begging for money saying they need to ´win to govern´. Well it´s not working this time, we are on to them and their stooges in the media. If any of these inside the belt-way pundits had gone (or would go)after 0bama the way they go after Cruz or Palin he would not have won re-election. I for one reuse to be patronized by these people any longer, it´s put up or shut up time.

The problem with Peter King, and many others in Congress, is they have been there so long they become `institutionalized`. It`s similar to being incarcerated in prison for 20 years or so. You get used to being told what to do every waking minute you can`t think for yourself. Same thing with long term congressional members. They get used to `the process` of every day life around the bubble of DC and they can`t think beyond it. DC becomes their life, kind of like one of their children and when criticized they go ballistic.

That`s my professional opinion. That`ll be $75.00 please.

A few years ago King held important hearings on "home-grown terrorism". At that time he received more than vile language from the Left.

He´s tired, it seems. Wisdom is knowing when to zip one´s lips --take your complaints to the Senator behind closed doors or call his office, for cryin´ out loud; and, when to quit, pack up and go home.

Too much, way too much flapping jaws while our country is flushed down the sewer pipes.

Senator Cruz said that the Repubs don´t have regular strategy meetings. How stupid! Imagine how a war would go without the generals holding strategy and tactics meetings.

Imagine if Patton had blabbed to the press or took calls from Berlin and complained about the brash General Eisenhower who was planning a radical invasion of Europe.
(And Patton had an ego!)

Yes. Here and now, too many gigantic, flaming egos clogging up the air while our political enemies plot and scheme.

WASHINGTON — Organizing for Action, President Obama’s nonprofit advocacy organization, has sought to be nimble as it ramps up a national effort to back his agenda on gun control measures and immigration reform. But it appears the group didn’t move swiftly enough to protect its presence online. An arbitrator has denied the organization’s effort to obtain the domain name organizingforaction.net, registered by a quick-moving computer technician in Castle Rock, Colo., on Jan. 18, when the news broke that Obama’s former advisors were launching the group.

The nanny state is in the news.

If you share the outrage, you should recognize that various forms of paternalism are all around you, and at least some of them aren’t so bad.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
