Republican Rep. Peter King of New York has called Ted Cruz's tactics " governmental terrorism." Those are pretty harsh words coming from one of Cruz's fellow Republicans.
Upon learning recently that King was considering running for president in 2016, my first reaction was to...yawn.
However, as time passes, it is becoming increasingly clear that should King and Cruz both run for the Republican nomination in 2016, there could be a lot of fireworks.
It could end up being one of the nastiest Republican presidential primaries in modern times. The temperaments of these two guys...and their history...practically guarantee it.
Calling a member of one's own political party a “governmental terrorist” is strong language. But, as strong as that language is, it may be nothing compared to the actual schism that seems to be growing exponentially in the Republican Party day by day.
As far as Cruz being engaged in "governmental terrorism," King is right, except that it's not just Cruz who is engaged in it, it's virtually the entire modern day Republican Party. Cruz is merely trying to "out-terrorize" his fellow Republicans.
