    On Fox News Saturday, King took shots at GOP Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, two would-be opponents in a potential Republican primary.
    In an interview from Ames, Iowa, the real estate mogul questioned whether Cruz's Canadian birth would make him eligible for the White House.

    I'd love to have a national security/foreign policy candidate to inject that discussion into the primary. I just don't want it to be Peter King.

    I am no fan of King....I think he makes some solid points, and might be able to give Hillary heartburn on Benghazi, but not sure how he'd stack up as a well rounded candidate....Although this next election is not going to be a cakewalk for demo's, we conservatives really need to get a solid candidate to run.

    I will believe King is serious about running when he is still around campaigning in 2015. Until then he is just running his mouth to get money.

    How well Paul does depends on how serious people are about civil liberties, if he makes it the focus of his campaign, and how well he is able to sell it. She doesn't have a whole lot to use against him and focusing her attack on his opposition to public accommodations is not going to be nearly as successful as liberals might believe.

    Hopefully he can find a way to tone his fathers extremists down a bit, and find a way to get along...
