Ugh, you know, Ronald Reagan hurt me by coming to the state all the time.  Barack Obama is personally a very popular guy.

AC360: Rep. King on Sochi's Olympic Games: "If my family were given tickets, I would not go."

 

New York Republican Congressman Peter King told Anderson Cooper on tonight’s Anderson Cooper 360° that the U.S. can't 100% guarantee safety at the Olympic games in Sochi, Russia. He told Anderson that if he was an athlete, he would "almost certainly go," but not as a spectator – no. "If my family were given tickets, I would not go."

“Too much of a risk...odds are there will not be an attack, but the odds are higher than they've been for any other Olympics, probably less than 50/50.  That's pretty high when you're talking about a terrorist attack.”
