King: 30 to 40 GOP lawmakers refuse to admit legitimacy of Obama’s presidency

October 2, 2013

People are willing to demonize Obama because he’s from a different party, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said Tuesday that there are about 30 to 40 Republicans in Congress who refuse to recognize the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency and are seeking to erase everything that’s happened during his administration.

King made the remarks in a discussion with Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball, after the host asked how many Republicans would like to “erase [Obama’s] record as if he was never here.”

“I’ve had members, they know who they are, they say – ‘I really can’t say with these lips that this man, Barack Obama, was elected president’,” Matthews said. “They choke on that. How many are there in Congress on your side that represent that rejectionist front?”

“I would say there are probably 30 or 40 who are like that,” King responded. “As there were a number of Democrats who felt that way about George W. Bush, and going back to when you and I first met, Republicans who felt that way about Bill Clinton.”

King has been one of the most vocal opponents in his party to the GOP strategy of tying ObamaCare to the resolution to fund the government. He’s openly criticized Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), who has led the defunding campaign, as a “fraud,” and on Monday sought to orchestrate a “moderate rebellion” in the House to continue funding the government.

    While we are “erasing” Odumbo, let’s erase RINO King also.

    What do you
    expect from a Blue State Republican (He is like a Muslim; it is ok to lie if it
    advances their agenda.) Moderate Republicans are as bad as Democrats that are afraid to support their country and protect the Constitution.

    If this is true then why is it that the Dumocraps and Obozzos lawyers have submitted three DIFFERENT Birth Certificates to the Alabama Supreme Court as defense of his legitimacy ???????????????????????????? The man is a fruad and should never have been on the Presidential Ballot in 2008 but no one cared and as a result the Dumocraps have comited one of the greatest frauds EVER. Wake up America

      1 thing for sure. Obama went to colleges as a foreign student. That is why he won’t release his colleges records. So he is either an American committing Fraud as a foreign student. Or he is a foreign born committing fraud as a legal president. Logical. Can it be anything else?
