    I think he's upset that we're not more upset or outraged at Cantor's loss.

    You said this, rewording to accuse me of asking if you're a sore loser.

    You've reached the level of honesty .
    Then what was the purpose of asking me such a stupid question?

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    Does your Texas have a sore losers law--yes or no?
    Does the Virginia 7th have one--yes or no?
    Both are legitimate questions in this day and age of politics.

    How can there be both obstruction and inaction? And what 'disruption' are you referring to?

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    As to the opening post of the thread, this is the kind of unforeseen side effects you get with heavily gerrymandered districts. When you make a district as conservative or for that matter as liberal as possible, you get more and more extreme candidates out of the primaries. The base might like it, but it hurts the party involved at a national level as it gets further and further from the political center. Now as a result of this House Republicans will move even further to the right for fear of losing in a primary. I am sure the hard core base will like that, but it hurts them even more at the national level.

    I would point out that I called this all on this forum way back in 2006. I pointed out that the Republican primary base would keep pulling the party further and further to the right and that as long as that went on, the party would be at a huge disadvantage at the national level. That is exactly what has happened since then.

    Again, who are these sore losers? Why do you expect me to be sore that more conservative candidate upended Cantor?

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    First, you're using my post to XY, so folks know Grant.
    Second, have you said anything about Cantor--help me out?

    How do you expect the Country to move forward tomorrow with new leadership?
    Think Cantor's religion may have played a part in the upset--think John Sununu?

    Why is the main body of GOP posters on this thread silent about the immigration LIES used by Brat against Cantor?
    Dems will straighten out Brat's lies starting tomorrow .

    Go soak your head. I get that you deem all conservatives racist but if you're going to cast the anti-Semitic stone as well then you really aren't paying any attention to your own vaunted side (which is entirely consistent with who I understand you to be).
