Skip to comments.Eric Cantor: The G.O.P., After John Boehner
Posted on 09/25/2015 9:06:28 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal
LIKE so many others, I was stunned by Speaker John A. Boehners announcement on Friday that he would step down at the end of October. For nearly six years first as Republican whip and then as majority leader I met with John on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis as we worked to lead the House Republican Conference. (SNIP) We are in the midst of a campaign to elect the next president. After two terms of President Obama, an economy that is growing too slowly and a retrenchment of American power abroad, the conservative to-do list for the next Republican president is quite long. That presidents success will require steady, capable hands in Congress to move a conservative vision forward. Now is not the time for more infighting. Now is the time to come together and lay out a positive, honest governing platform to take the country forward. This is what my friend John Boehner fought for, and this is what we must continue to fight for to honor his dedication to Congress and the American people.

Who is Eric Cantor? Stop with the irrelevant male cow pooh articles! Irrelevant! Totally irrelevant article. Don’t waste my time!
I’ll have what he’s having.
Oh another lib paper: New York Slime....another paper for bird cage lining, or to clean up the crap floating down the gutters in any city of any state in America....

| Sour Grapes!! Sour Grapes!! Since When Did Boehner Do Anything Other Than Give 0bozo everthing he wants!!?
Honor? Don't make me laugh! Bonehead Has NO Idea what the word means.
Had Boenher actually fought for something (good), he wouldn't have had to step down. More lectures from the GOPe.
Cantor is completely delusional.
Can’t stop lying....these GOPe psychotics. He thinks we don’r see what they are doing to us.
What a hoot!
If Eric Cantor and John Boehner had only delivered what they promised, they’d still have their jobs today.
And this tear-jerking letter from a guy who lost his own party primary?
Cry me a river!
What pure unadulterated crap. Here was the second in line to a pure RHINO, Bonehead Orange Man, who lost his seat because he was a phony “conservative republican,” and now he has the pure temerity, pure impudence, pure insolence, and pure stupidity to post an opinion in of all places, the New York Slime. That says it all. This proud buffoon has no shame and not an iota of common sense. He was what we thought he was, a proud rabid liberal. STFU Cantor, you have no shame and no scruples.
If we replace Boehner with someone like Cantor, or McCarthy, it was a waste of time.
Why let him stay through October? He needs to go now.
With all the power possessed of the man in charge of the House of Representatives, the man who stands but two heartbeats away from the presidency, to array a paltry list of achievements as has been served up now by Eric Cantor on behalf of John Boehner is-there is no other word for it- pathetic.
As Churchill quoted Cromwell dismissing the rump Parliament: "you have been sitting here too long for the good you have done, begone I say and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!"
agree with you all the way. big loser sticks up for big loser and we don’t give a damn. wasted screen room
do either of these idiots have a clue to why this happened??? evidently not. McConnell over at the Senate is next.
That is a great observation.
Cantor looked like a good rep and he blew it.
Boner had a great chance to go down as a very significant positive speaker ... and he blew it Enabling and Protecting the Illegal-immigrant-in-Chief
two men who made the wrong political decisions ... for themselves and for America
Eric Cantor the one guy that should get near the Speakers Desk... there are others but he is diseased..
Teary eyed Boehner agrees, " Im Too Old For This S#%it".
