    Washington (CNN) - The government shutdown showdown is getting ugly.

    Republican Rep. Peter King said Friday that his Republican colleague in the Senate, Ted Cruz, "is a fraud" who will "no longer have any influence in the Republican Party" after the House votes on a measure that could potentially lead to a government shutdown.

    King made his comments while on his way to a Republican meeting, shortly before the House was set to begin debating, then voting on the bill. The legislation provides funds for the government to stay afloat past the end of the fiscal year on September 30, but only if money for Obamacare is cut out.

    I don't know about fraud, but the "impractical" and "cheap headline-hunting schemes" labels seem to fit.

    Cruz is doing this to make himself a viable candidate for the 2016 presidential nomination in the GOP.

    Even after all of this stupid mudslinging he trails Christie (favorite) and Paul (not nominatable)

    [is that that a word? :laugh: ]


    He's got to do something to stay in the Top 3...he chose to be the teaparty firebrand

    As a Republican I prefer Cruz first, Paul second and Christie third out of those. Christie is too much RINO for me taste.

    Peter King wants to run for prez. Game plan, start early to attack your opponent.

    So, is all of this just positioning for fundraising?

    And does that "strategy" apply to Cruz making the shutdown a public stunt?

    He's attacking Christie and maybe Paul too...

    :whoa:

    Peter 'the RINO' King needs to STFU. He's playing right into the commies' divide and conquer strategy.

    This is good... I like two out the three. But Paul is my first choice at this point in time. He can make a great point without looking like an angry man.

    He's right, he is a fraud. Then again if I had a nickel for every fraud in Congress than I'd have about $25. And that's being generous (I'm assuming they aren't ALL frauds, although I'd be hard pressed to come up with a list that would keep me below $26.50.)

    Obama and his ilk (Pravda-west) are the commies.

    No, it makes us Constitutionalists. You're the one for the nanny state, complete with a dictator spreading other people's wealth and "fundamentally changing America" into a slave state.

    .....please. He's talking about the war on drugs, not Obama's supposed greatness. If Rand continues with his love to legalize drugs then I'll have to re-think my support for him.

    Paul says "And I think what a tragedy if he had gone to prison. What a tragedy if America hadn't seen Barack Obama as a leader."

    And that isn't worse than Christie & Christ giving him a hug?
    :roll:


    If you didn't know about Rand & his Daddy's position on legalizing drugs then I would say you don't know squat about those who you think you support.

    If you think these politicians discrediting the POTUS will get the independent voters to vote for him you're mistaken.

    It's all political speak. There are numerous times when he and the Pubs have berated the POTUS. I think MSNBC wants him to be the Pubs' candidate, but I don't know why.
