    MATTHEWS: Who are the people you’re dealing with? [...]
    KING: The American citizens. [...]
    MATTHEWS: So you’re polling in your district to find out whether the United States goes into default or not at the end of this month. … They know what’s going to happen…
    KING: I have an independent judgment as well.
    MATTHEWS: Ok tell me where it comes from.
    KING: It comes from a long experience of dealing politically, and in business, and raising a family, and being an American citizen…
    MATTHEWS: What does raising a family teach you about international finance? [...]
    KING: That’s not my only source of information — is raising my children. [...]
    MATTHEWS: Do you trust the Wall Street Journal, do you trust the New York Times?
    KING: I read the Wall Street Journal. I sometimes read the New York Times. I don’t really trust it. I don’t trust the words of any source.

    Matthews then asked if King could cite one — just one — international or domestic expert who he trusts on these issues and agrees with his view. King, of course, could not name one.

    I love it when right wingers say they had a "gut feeling". Gas, or a bit of undigested beef, or constipation can give you a "gut feeling".

    If only they had "reason".

    Steve King Represents Republicans "perfectly".

    This is a textbook example of the 'proverb'

    Reason and the right wing. Mutually exclusive.

    I love to ask that someone describe a "reasonable" right wing policy. No one can. Hilarious.

    As though you would know a reasoned line of thinking when you heard it...Which you clearly don't.

    Both parties play this trick.

    That being said, Steve King is a boob.
