Skip to comments.Manzullo: Cantor should step down for interfering in primary
Posted on 03/20/2012 10:30:49 AM PDT by Windy City Conservative
Rep. Don Manzullo (R-Ill.) said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor should step down from his leadership position for interfering in Tuesdays primary.
The 10-term congressman said he was outraged that Cantor (R-Va.) endorsed freshman Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) in the battle between the two lawmakers, which is growing nastier by the day.
He needs to step down as majority leader, Manzullo told The Hill on Monday afternoon, referring to Cantor. Members of our conference dont trust him, and when you dont trust someone, you need to replace him.

Does that mean we can look forward to Boner being replaced soon?
Cantor is yet one more douche who (too) many FReepers wanted to run for president.
What????? First time I’ve heard ‘president’ mentioned & he’s ‘my’ congressional rep (that I did NOT vote for last time!). Oh boy, ‘president’ is a really bad idea ...
It appears the GOP-E Rombots are trying to purge Conservatives from the party using the same tactics in Congressional primaries they are using in the Presidential primary. Next e-mail I get from Cantor I’m going to unsubscribe.
Two-State Newt did something similar to this in 1996 — he intervened unsuccessfully in the TX primary against none other than Ron Paul. But Paul hates Santorum more than he does Newt.
Here is what this endorsement of Adam Kinzinger by Cantor is all about. Manzullo is a very fine man and one terrific Congressman who has held this seat for twenty years. It is the old John Anderson district and was held by a Democrat when Manzullo defeated the Democrat even while Clinton was being elected to his first term. Manzullo has made the 16th a very Republican District by compiling a twenty year track record of social conservatism, foreign policy conservatism and fiscal conservatism and by resisting the free trade schemes that have elsewhere done such damage to manufacturing and to factory workers. Nationally, manufacturing is apparently 12% of the economy. Here, in a relatively rural and agricultural district centered on Rockford, manufacturing is 23% of the economy. Thanks, Don.
Whores like Cantor and Boehner live for lobbyist and special issue cash above all. They are willing to demand that caucus members vote for every increase in the debt limit that Obozo's corrupt regime requests. Lots of the money goes to Republican as well as Demonrat special interests, after all, and we must not jeopardize the special interests that hand out the money and run the really neat cocktail parties to protect such boring losers as actual taxpayers, right???. Just ask Eric Cantor and John Boehner.
Kinzinger was elected to Congress by Tea Party folks just two years ago based upon his grand promises to them. When he arrived in Congress, he proceeded to do nothing but suck up to the corruption-defined GOP House leaders and pissed on (and also pissed off) his Tea Party constituents back home. He is being rewarded by the "leaders" for betraying the Tea Party and his constituents.
Not unlike the disgraceful Romney campaign, Kinzinger expends massive amounts of special interest money collected for him by Cantor and spends it on nothing but lies and distortions of Don Manzullo's fine and exemplary record.
Don Manzullo is a movement conservative who was quite active in Young Americans for Freedom in his law school days at Marquette Law School when the disciples of William Ayres and Bernardine Doehrn Ayres were running wild. Don was at Rick Santorum's appearance in Rockford yesterday. Kinzinger was not there and was not represented. Kinzinger no longer does movement conservative appearances because he is a junior stooge for "leadership."
Finally, Don Manzullo sent an open letter to Boehner, asking that Congress cut short a recess, come back into session and pass a resolution vowing that there would be no more debt limit increases to accommodate Obozo. That essentially was demanding that the whores like Boehner and Cantor behave as though they were actual Republicans. Of course, neither Boehner nor Cantor are interested in anything so unseemly as actually fighting Obozo and cutting off his allowance.
I am proud that Don Manzullo is my Congressman and I expect that the new 16th district GOP of Illinois will agree this evening. If Aaron Schock, one southern Illinois "GOP" Congresscritter John Shimkus, Eric Cantor and John Boehner think that Kinzinger ought to represent Illinois 16, those of us who live here say to each of them: mind your own business. As to Adam Kinzinger, after his despicable campaign, I am glad to see him go.
You like Reagan, but you’d rather have the less conservative incumbent beat the conservative incumbent because the more conservative guy has been in Congress longer?
“You like Reagan, but youd rather have the less conservative incumbent beat the conservative incumbent because the more conservative guy has been in Congress longer?”
Yes, and at the next election, you can vote the RINO out. If a politician has been in Congress 20 years, it’s way passed time for him/her to find a real job. Voting him out will send a message to the other career politicians...
