Rep. Peter King, who called fellow Republican Ted Cruz a 'fraud,' said his office is now receiving threatening phone calls from people who say they're supporters of the Texas senator.

"You can't always blame a person if his followers act in a terrible way," King said on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer." However, he expressed concern about the "vile, obscene" nature of the phone calls.

King is a loudmouth moron who only cares about the safety of New Yorkers. Everyone else can go hang. What a jerk.

The state of having sand in it? I think getting the sand out would be good.

he'll no longer have any influence in the Republican Party

Rep. King needs to get used to Cruz, because I may just send him back to Washington if he keeps getting up the noses of the GOP-E.

The guy is a regular on Don Imus. Imus is always talking about his (Imus')and others' wieners and political erections. Imus gets in occasional un-beeped curse words. Imus descriptions of some politicians (mostly conservatives) are in the four-letter category.

Golly gee I didn't know how much King suffered.

If the people calling him are vile, it must be a regional thing, kind of like his own style of vitriol. I frankly question the validity of his declaration. Unless these elites think anyone daring to question their decision making are vile and mean.

Gosh. I’ve been called a terrorist, anarchist, dark stain, hostage taker and rapist (among other things) by various democrats due to my Tea Party sympathies. I consider that vile, Mr. King. I am a law abiding, self supporting, tax paying US citizen. Why have you never attacked those that called me names?

My long experience with the libtards tells me that this is classic dirty tricks by them. Problem is that most or all of the 47% morons who get one or hear about it will happily believe yet another libtard LIE!

From article — “”The congressman reiterated on Thursday that he doesn't think the phone calls are Cruz's fault, but argued that “he's tapping into something out there which is mean and ugly.””

What's mean and ugly is the frustration and anger that people feel while these a$$holes play politics instead of representing the people.

There is an undercurrent building that may lead to a revolution — that may be “unpeaceful” — and these crack whores will be the target — democrats AND republicans.

Calling Cruz a fraud is vile and obscene.

So why is King so surprised when people respond in kind?

Is King that stupid or is King a fraud.

King calls Cruz a "terrorist"

But King LOVES terrorists. The more people the IRA kills the more he runs to defend and protect them.

King does not do the same for Cruz.

It thus follows that King does NOT regard Cruz as a terrorist but is just displaying the fact that he dislikes people who actually do something to advance civilization.

So do terrorists.

____________fill in logical conclusion here___________

He may be partially right when you consider that his definition of obscene no doubt is easily expanded to include “any and all disagreement with him and his fellow statist Democrats over any political, social or religious issue” under his personal umbrella of what constitutes it.

Several problems here.

Why is Pete King on CNN of all places and why that noted on Freerepublic? CNN doesn’t deserve the publicity as it gets such poor ratings. Nobody would notice otherwise.

Pete King calling fellow Republican Ted Cruz a “fraud”. What the heck is wrong with you Congressman? Senator Cruz is doing his best to raise awareness to how bad 0bamacare is and could be to everyone. If you don’t support this position, you don’t belong in the Republican party. You have no business complaining about the complaints.

Nope, Pete, you aren't royalty, merely because you had the good fortune to get elected. If you represented MY district, you'd be unelected very soon.

He’s a “fraudulent Republican”. That’s a much been phrase than RHINO. Folks should start repeating the phrase more and more. It carries more weight. It is the platform phrase for vetting these seats and TEA PARTYIZING them.
