If Rep. Pete King (R-NY) is trying to get a little love from Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi—the kind that is often reserved for John McCain—the above tweet might do the trick.
However, Rep. King’s comment did not earn him any love from many on Twitter:
@RepPeteKing @Kathy_Amidon @SenTedCruz No,definitely NOT a victory for America when you people raise debt ceiling and get 0 concessions!!!

@PragueArtist @SenTedCruz @RepPeteKing Petey wishes he was half the leader Senator Cruz is and will continue to be.

King later doubled down today by re-tweeting a story about his call for a “Republican war on Ted Cruz”:
RT @reidpillifant: Pete King calls for a Republican war on Ted Cruz http://t.co/ONBx8oUGbj

Such comments are playing right into the hands of the Democrats.
@RepPeteKing @reidpillifant You do realize the Dems are playing divide and conquer?

.@RepPeteKing yeah, let's step-up the civil war within the GOP… I don't know how you think this will help you become POTUS in 2016.

When Rep. King talks or tweets these days, the Dems probably just sit back and say “pass the popcorn.”
