Skip to comments.Rep. Peter King Threatens to Jump Off a Bridge if Cruz Gets GOP Nomination
Posted on 03/23/2015 4:15:33 PM PDT by don-o
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) appeared on CNNs The Situation Room Monday afternoon and when Wolf Blitzer asked him to explain his statement that compared Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to a carnival barker, the Republican congressman opted not to walk back his comments but instead take about a dozen steps forward.
We need intelligent debate in the country. Ted Cruz may be an intelligent person, but he doesnt carry out an intelligent debate, King said. He oversimplifies, he exaggerates and he basically led the Republican Party over the cliff in the fall of 2013. He has shown no qualifications, no legislation being passed, doesnt provide leadership and he has no real experience. So, to me, he is just a guy with a big mouth and no results.
But would King support Cruz if he ended up becoming the Republican Party nominee for 2016?
I hope that day never comes, King told Blitzer. I will jump off that bridge when we come to iy"

So where do we buy tickets?
There is no downside.
That was easy.
Has any DemocRAT ever carried-on like this about any DemocRAT candidate or nominee?
Threatening to jump off a bridge is about as immature and silly as it gets.
Isn’t that like a verbal contract? I mean, would anyone be mad at us if we helped him pay off?
Ordinary light bulbs will return if this clown jumps.
You’re all talk Peter King and a small mind and suffering a serious spinectomy. The only bridge you’ll jump off is a dental bridge.
Just bought extra popcorn. . It's Really going to get a Lot Better if he announces Sarah as his VP pick. Can you imagine?
As opposed to King who has an even bigger mouth and fewer accomplishments?
What about Cruz makes King so spastic?
Is King a racist?
Peter King NEEDS a conservative third-party opponent in his general election.
Or he could jump off a bridge too.
I’ll give him taxi fare.
>>He oversimplifies, he exaggerates
This is EXACTLY what works in the modern, poorly-educated, short attention span people that make up the electorate in America today. Romney was a boring detail guy who just couldn’t fight the Progressive rhetoric. If we are going to win, we need an oversimplifier and exaggerator, a person who can fight over-the-top rhetoric with over-the-top rhetoric.
I wonder if he could get his good buddy Obama to jump with him
A bridge? I hope it is at least a few hundred feet high.
I would drive him to the bridge myself.
King is a simpleton.
Oh well.......Step up....Next RINO
