Peter King: House needs
´adult supervision´ from Senate

The Hill [Washington DC], by Rebecca Shabad

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 10/16/2013 1:51:36 PM

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) says he hopes the House “will get some adult supervision from the Senate” to achieve a debt ceiling deal. (Snip)King said he would vote for that deal, and blames Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for this fiscal mess. “Ted Cruz has been a total fraud from the start,” King said. “It never could have succeeded. I can’t imagine going into battle knowing you can’t win and continue telling your people you are winning. It’s Never Never Land, parallel universes, whatever you want to call it.” Congress, King added, will be back in the same boat in three to four

Comments:
He never stops ragging on Cruz. So Bill Hemmer (Fox News) just asked him why. "Do you know him?" King had to admit he´d never met Cruz. Just blames him for being the "architect" of the shutdown.

King is so jealous of Cruz you can almost small it.

Switch sides like Arlen Specter did and see how long the "cool kids" give you the time of day.

Peter King makes me want to vomit.

When Obamacare irreparably damages the middle class to pay for the the fat, lazy slobs who won´t take care of themselves, I hope the voters remember who tried to save them.

Those of us fortunate enough to live in Texas where some sanity still resides are more fortunate we didn´t have Peter King R-New York leading the fight at the Alamo. The deaths of those brave souls facing insurmountable odds with no hope of winning the battle resulted in stirring the passions of others who gave the Mexicans a thrashing with the cry "remember the Alamo!

If left up to the likes of Peter King our illegal immigration problem would be at the Mississippi River. And we would likely be speaking German and Japanese in the rest of the country. But King seems very representative of the surrender monkeys of New England.

King is right , Cruz didn´t know what he was doing or he purposefully deceived the base.
If defunding had any chance of succeeding, Cruz and Heritage should have gone after the 21 Senate Democrats
required to join every Senate Republican
to override Obama´s eventual veto.
I never saw Cruz or Heritage target a single Democrat with a commercial .
They only targeted Republicans who never voted for or supported Obamacare.
Cruz and Heritage did not go into the home districts of Democrats and tell town halls that their representatives supported Obamacare.
They only did that in Republican districts.
Apparently the Cruz strategy was to run down fellow anti Obamacare Republicans, call them squishes and the Surrender Caucus ,
and demand that Republicans vote to defund Obamacare.
Which they did.
Once that happened and then the government shut down, according to DeMint and Cruz ,
Obama and the majority Democrats would cave and defund Obamacare.
The tsunami Cruz predicted never happened.
Not a single Democrat changed their vote.
Did anyone other than Cruz , DeMint and Limbaugh seriously think Chuck Schumer or
Barbara Boxer or Al Franken or
Dianne Feinstein or Dick Durbin, et al. would turn against Obama and come over to the Republican side ????
Cruz obviously did not understand the dynamics of the Democrat Party or Obama.
Cruz described fellow anti Obamacare Republicans
( who were in the minority ) as the enemy and
ignored the majority pro Obamacare Democrats.
That´s why his bizarre strategy never had a chance of working and instead has backfired.

A real Speaker of the House would take a nitwit such as Rep. King aside and read him he riot act. Funny how Congress members practice `decorum` while on the floor of the house/senate, then suddenly become potty mouths when they get in front of a camera. This type of behavior does nothing positive for anyone. Sounds to me like King has done more damage to the GOP the past couple of weeks than supposedly has Ted Cruz.

#16 is absolutely right on... Cruz misread Obama´s obstinacy and stupidly believed Obama would cave.

Instead, Obama stuck to his guns and forced an embarrassing shutdown on the Republicans.

Cruz was outsmarted by Obama.

Or was he...

Cruz started off demanding Obamacare be defunded, and quickly made the ever-so-slight shift to demand it be delayed by a year.

Obama said no way, those options, and others, were "non-negotiable."

So the gov´t shut down, and the People focused laser-like on the rollout of Obamacare.

Which was "horrible," "deeply embarrassing," "big failure," "disaster," ... and those were the GOOD reviews!

Now that Obama has painted a bright red line this side of delaying Obamacare, it looks for all the world that a system designed over three years and costing over $600M will be unable to keep the gov´t´s side of the critical bargain that holds Obamacare together: the individual mandate.

Come next November, as the people have Obamacare´s disaster still fresh in their minds, they might just remember who risked his political career (even if not his life, his fortune and his sacred honor) to stop it.

So, yeah, #16 is absolutely right, if Cruz is dumber than Obama.

You be the judge.

While many of us realize that the ruddy-faced Peter King lives in a purple--at best--district, and that we´d prefer a moderate Republican to a leftist Democrat, he needs to know that for the Republican Party his accomodationist political strategy is a one way ticket to Palookaville.

MEXICO CITY – Mexico´s government confirmed late Sunday that the leader of the Knights Templar Cartel was killed in an early-morning shootout with troops despite being declared dead by authorities in 2010. Tomas Zeron, head of the criminal investigation unit for the federal Attorney General´s Office, said the identity of Nazario Moreno Gonzalez had been confirmed 100 percent by fingerprints, but added that tests would continue. Moreno´s death was one of the more bizarre twists in Mexico´s assault on drug cartels, in which two others of the country´s most powerful capos have been captured in the last year without a shot fired.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket.

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Arriving in New Zealand on the first day of a three-week trip Down Under, the third in line to the throne took the windswept welcome in his stride, although he looked a little chilly in a cream jumper and shorts. Scroll down for video -With a lifetime of royal engagements ahead of him, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are understandably protective of their young son. Indeed, his appearance today was only the second time he has been

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to
