What Is Wrong With Eric Cantor?

by: lowkell

Tue Mar 15, 2011 at 15:22:42 PM EDT

First, read this:
"All of us need to be tempered by the fact that we've got to stop spending money we don't have," Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told reporters at his weekly press briefing. "Essentially, what you are saying is to go borrow money from the Japanese so we can spend it there to help the Japanese."

President Barack Obama said Monday that the United States "will continue offer any assistance we can" to Japan as it deals with aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami. But the majority leader did not back down from the House GOP's proposed budget cuts for programs that respond to natural disasters both at home and abroad. H.R. 1, which the House passed in February, would cut the U.S. Agency for International Development budget by about $121 million, or roughly 8.7 percent.

Now, can someone please explain to me what's wrong with Eric Cantor exactly? No brain? No heart? Neither? It's so embarrassing that this clown is from Virginia, what did our great state to deserve him?!?

Are you teasing, this is easy to explain.. (0.00 / 0)
The tea party has been bitterly complaining about cantor not cutting spending enough.  This is an obvious attempt to get back on their good side because he needs their votes.

So he bashes Japan? (0.00 / 0)
That's the path to the teahadists' hearts?

Come on now... (0.00 / 0)
I know you are teasing.  He isn't actually bashing the Japanese, he is bashing those "foreigners" that the tea folk hate.  I can see the next election now with cantor talking about how he stopped President Obama from giving away America.

So... (4.00 / 1)
Lowell says no heart and no brain.

Now you say no courage.

Sounds like someone could use a road trip to the Emerald City.

vulgar language, but a trip to the Emerald City won't do because there's no way the Wizard would feel compelled to do anything for a chickenshit. He's a cold, unfeeling, politically motivated pile of poo.  His utter lack of humanity makes it impossible for him to empathize; thus, he is incapable of sensing what he lacks; namely heart, brains, and courage.

Opps I forgot the topic... (0.00 / 0)
I thought for a moment you were speaking of dick cheney.

Do you really have to ask? (0.00 / 0)
Not sure that this was a reach out to the tea party, as much as it was a reflexive statement about their determination to do nothing.

Really liked his line about "We've all got to do more with less."

Was he speaking to his millionaire (0.00 / 0)
donors when he said, "We've all got to do more with less?"  Suuurrrre he was.

[ Parent ]
With all the talk about Chinese holdings of American debt... (0.00 / 0) sounds like he confused Chinese with Japanese, since "all them Oriental peoples look alike!"

I'm reallly ashamed to have this guy as a fellow Jew. Any way to excommunicate him?

For a Sustainable Virginia. Now on Twitter.

What's wrong with him? (0.00 / 0)
Everything.  And he gets worse all the time.  It's a sure sign that the GOP is out of talent that. He rose to his position.

There's nothing in the middle of the road except yellow stripes and dead armadillos (Jim Hightower). PS I'm on Twitter here.
