I am increasingly concerned about the growing mobs occupying Wall Street and other cities across our country.House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, talking about Occupy Wall Street. “Believe it or not, some in this town have actually condoned the pitting of Americans against Americans,” he continued. “But you sent us here to fight for you and for all Americans. You sent us here to bring about real change in Washington, real change to your federal government. And we’re committed to do that.” Pitting of Americans against Americans? Isn’t that what you do, Eric? Let’s be honest with ourselves before we criticize others.
On “Meet the Press,” our boy David Gregory was chattin’ up our good friend Eric Cantor, basically trying to get him to say something bad about birthers. Cantor, eventually realizing that he couldn’t weasel out of Gregory’s line of questioning, gave him a half-answer on the question. Honestly, Cantor was right the first time.

You cannot wipe the grin off my face with a stick of dynamite. I think it’s important that he has to face the consequences of his actions.Blogger Susan DuQuesnay Bankston of Richmond, Texas • Exclaiming her utter joy about Tom DeLay’s conviction for money laundering yesterday. DeLay, who left Congress under a firestorm of controversy in 2005, was convicted of illegally channeling $190,000 to GOP candidates in Texas with a money swap. The money helped lead to a Texas legislature that was strongly GOP, which helped the former House Majority Leader push through a redistricting plan that was advantageous to DeLay politically.

This is a woman who puts ideology first. This says to voters, ‘we’re not listening to you.’Likely House Majority Leader Eric Cantor • Dropping his two cents into the whole Nancy-still-wants-to-lead thing. Is this the guy who should be trashing people for putting ideology first? We remember what Eric did during the the Health Care Summit at the White House, and when you have to use attention-grabbing props to get your point across, you’re in it for the ideology, not getting things done. None of this is to say that Nancy should try to keep her leadership position. But Eric Cantor is the wrong guy to make this argument. source (via • follow)
