Peter King the latest to bash Rand Paul, then later praises Michael Bloomberg

Jennifer Rubin, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Bill Kristol, Chris Christie, Charles Krauthammer and now…

New York Congressman Peter King is the latest in a line of neocons and progressives coming out to take jabs at Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).

He said the following things on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley today:

First King told Crowley that it was “absolutely disgraceful” that so many Republicans voted to defund the NSA program which has done so much to protect out country.

“This is an isolation streak that’s in our party. It goes totally against the party of Eisenhower and Reagan, Bush. I mean we are a party of national defense. We’re a party who did so much to protect the country over the last 12 years”, King said as he ponders a 2016 run.

“When you have Rand Paul comparing Snowden to Martin Luther King or Henry David Thoreau–this is madness.”

Peter King thinks the Eisenhower and Reagan administrations were all hopped-up war crazy like recent administrations and willing to destroy civil liberties and the drop of a hat in the name of “national security”? I say not so much.

Sen. Paul responded with a post on his official Facebook page–“Peter King, from the Democrat Wing of the Republican Party, wants to send your tax dollars to foreign despots and to countries that burn our flag. I don’t.”

After bashing the preeminent defender of civil liberties and The Constitution in the entire Congress, King in his infinite wisdom praises absolute authoritarians like Rudy Guiliani and Michael Bloomberg, calling them, “outstanding giants of men who really did so much to bring NYC back…”

Really Rep King, praising Michael Bloomberg? Haven’t you been paying attention to what Mr. Bloomberg has been doing to the citizens of NYC?

Now that is madness!!
