    Cantor was between the sheets with Corporate America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    It's a start, when will the Democrat voters start doing the same ?
    I agree... its a start.. Cantor was a good decent man.. but he failed on stopping Obama on anything... The Dems own it now..

    Nonsense. Tea Partiers disagree with Obama's policies and for that, have been judged as " extreme " by the left wing apologist who put ideology before Truth.

    And your'e ignoring the last 6 years of incompetence and failure and lies from the Democrat party for what reason ? Because your " objective ??

    No, because you're no different than the supposed partisan hacks you criticize.

    Sorry, but plenty of Democrats knew Saddam had WMD's..

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."
    -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

    Clinton's " affordable lending '' initiative set off a huge time bomb in the form a Sub-prime bubble that was so systemic it's collapse caused Capital Markets all around the world to tank in 2008.

    He co-opted the GSE's into buying a increasing amount of low quality and risky loans and then appointed his own Democrat criminal buddies to run them into the ground.

    Hey, you can be proud the Democrats bankrupted to iconic American institutions. And Fannie Mae was 70 years old.

    " Trickle Down ' ( a leftist mis-characterization of Conservative economic principles ) actually WORKS. Texas is a great example, and the GDP explosion that happened under Reagan.

    But I suppose you think stimulus and 6 Trillion in new debt with a GDP contraction 6 years into a Progressive presidents tenure is better than a REAL RECOVERY.

    And if your'e so concerned about the " exodus of corporate capital ''how about you support tax incentives that would bring that capital back.

Both Democrat Presidents were coming off the heels of a completely mismanaged domestic scene and both Democratic Presidents found a way to right the ship. The economy was stagnant at best when Clinton took office and eventually saw the largest economic improvement in world history - not just American history - which included a projected multi-hundred billion dollar surplus that was immediately spend down the toilet with the election of Bush 43..
    No, your'e just perpetuating tired and warmed over talking points, nothing else. And you can thank Clinton's Republican Congress for that " surplus ''. The House writes the budget and Clinton threw a hissy fit 5 times before signing it.

    Oh, and the Debt grew anyway and there IS NO current recovery, and NO it's not Bush's fault or the GOP's fault.

    It's actually people like you who are at fault. You voted and now your'e too proud to eat crow.

    People like you are the reason we got landed with Obama.

I remember seeing empty office space, offices and floor space just waiting for employees to be hired but not enough candidates to fill all the positions. I was in some of those offices at the time and saw how bizarre it looked and how hopeful the leaders of companies were about filling its empty floor space.

    AND Obama made it ALL worse. Poverty rates are way up, labor participation rate is at a record low, 20 million more people are dependent on food stamps and disability has doubled.

    There are 40 Jobs bills sitting in the Senate from the House waiting for a vote that will never come. What's Obama done ? Proven every right wing American right on the money as he sets his legacy AND the Legacy of the Democrat party in stone for the next 20 years as the party of corruption, lies and incompetence.

    Because the GOP always has a mantra ready regardless of what Obama does. Remember that Obama was being called "Deporter In Chief" and "breaking up illegal immigrant families" at the same time. Apparently he deports too much and not enough at the same time.

    Cantor was a Wall Street whore who sold out average Americans for a few million in campaign contributions.

    If you think Cantor was a "good decent man" then you think the screwing of average Americans by Wall Street is "good and decent."

    rational people understand Obams is driving us over a cliff.. and Cantor was not stopping it..

    The Dems should be shaking... the mood has shifted..

    but Obama is importing voters... same ole Lib canard..

    George Soros! Everybody drink!

    Part of me also wonders if Boehner wasn't helping behind the scenes to get rid of Cantor, who was not exactly subtle about aiming for Boehner's job.
