Peter King On GOP: 'This Party Is Going Nuts'



Peter King On GOP: 'This Party Is Going Nuts'

-snip-

-snip-

"This party is going nuts," King told HuffPost. "So many people I run into who are normal people -- and I hate to use that term -- they just can't understand what's going on."

"On this one they can't even see both sides," King said. "They just think Republicans are crazy. That's it. They see no justification for any of this."

He added that the compromise House leaders were pushing actually did little to affect Obamacare, except to force the federal government to stop contributing its share to congressional staffers' health insurance.

"Even if this bill passed tonight, what would it have done?" King said. "After shutting down the government for two and a half weeks, laying off 800,000 people, all the damage we caused, all we would end up doing was taking away health insurance from congressional employees. That's it? That's what you go to war for? That's what we shut down the United States government for?"

1. You tell em, Pete! And if anyone doubts you're a moderate, just check your voting record

Wait. Maybe scratch that.

4. He ain't a moderate

But his political instincts are generally good. And he is not batshit insane.

So he's got that going for him.

22. He wet his political finger and stuck it to the wind about two or three weeks ago...it

 

told him what the score was, and he's been running to distance himself from the rest of his pack since. By the simplest of comparisons, he currently is a moderate. Even though he's only about 1/2 step away from the tea party.

3. They've been nuts for a while.

GOP has been nuts, at least at a national level, since the 90's. I suppose they may be a bit more open about it today.

13. The New Right are radicals not Conservatvies, and the Party has left King.

I'm fine with that as long as he doesn't knock on my door and ask to sleep on my couch.

They've been nuts for over 15 years, and that's using a definition of 'nuts' you're likely to agree with.

21. Coming from one of the craziest bullies in the GOP. That's ripe!

Pete, you're an enabler. Don't try distancing yourself form these goons. You were one of the original Tea-hadists. Mark Meadows and Co. have just taken it to the next level and now your message doesn't carry the same sting as it once did.

32. Peter King is just a crazy as the rest of the gopers . .

as usual, and as a typical goper, he sees himself as sane and he far from it. The fucking damage the gopers will leave a scare.
