Staten Island's and West Brooklyn's Michael Grimm and Nassau's Peter King went out of their way on an ultra-liberal program to attack a conservative Republican, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, in his heroic effort to defund Obamacare
Is Mike Long okay with all that ? --- If not, what's he going to do about it ?
On the "Hardball With Chris Matthews" show earlier tonight, RINO Congressman Peter King called Republican Senator Ted Cruz "a holier than thou fraud," a liar and "a carnival barker." After more really obnoxious slander against the Republican from Texas, RINO King said that Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry Reid was in a tough spot. Then, it was a so-called Republican from Long Island, Peter King, that exhorted, "we have to stand up and and say we have had enough of this guy [Cruz]." (See "Carnival Cruz" 9/26/13, Hardball with Chris Matthews [http://www.nbcnews.com/id/3036697/ns/msnbc-hardball_with_chris_matthews/vp/53116793#53116793]).
The most despicable thing that King did was to give silent assent to a Chris Matthews rant that Ted Cruz was a demagogue that was going to crash and burn like the staunch anti-Communist crusader, Joseph McCarthy.
A few days earlier, a haughty and self-serving Mike Grimm appeared on the 9/23/13 "Hardball with Chris Matthews" show to say that Ted Cruz was cowardly and dishonest with the American people and that Cruz' rhetoric about defunding Obamacare needed to stop ( See "Deconstructing Ted Cruz" 9/23/13, Hardball with Chris Matthews [http://www.nbcnews.com/id/3036697/ns/msnbc-hardball_with_chris_matthews/vp/53089095#53089095]). Later in the session with Chris Matthews, Grimm said that he had many conservative principles, but that the far right is not constructive, and at the end of the day he had to get things done for the people whom he represents. Interestingly, in 2010 when first running for office Grimm was full-throated in his praise of the TEA Party and its principles, now he's clearly distancing himself from that caucus in congress; if it's not yet a divorce in all respects, then it certainly involves Grimm's abandonment of key TEA Party principles and values.
In addition, by joining Grimm with a former GOP Presidential campaign consultant Steve Schmidt, who had the nerve to cite Ronald Reagan, Matthews was able to get two Republicans to viciously attack the one man above others who is now leading the fight for the GOP against Obamacare.
Other than appearing on Chris Matthews' show to attack Ted Cruz and being among the very few Republican-Conservatives elected to Congress in the NYC Metropolitan area, what do King and Grimm have in common ? They are both very close to and strongly supported by NYS Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long.
Well, what does Mike Long think of these RINO-sounding guys and their anti-conservative noises in their recent appearances with Matthews? Who knows, maybe, Mike agrees with what they had to say about Cruz, and his standing up to stop Obamacare. We won't know until he says.
