    You do remember John Sununu and Pat Buchanon and their feelings about Jews don't you?

    you continue your deflections tonite and go all TEA.

    Though you accuse others of making sweeping reviews, it has been you who are the one .
    Ok, I'll play your game. Yes, Cantor lost because he's Jewish. The GOP knew that they'd never get any crossover votes from the Dems if they nominated a Jewish person.

    Re: Eric Cantor is Gone

    I was definitely caught off guard by this one.
    I am so happy and excited.
    I hate Eric Cantor so much.

    Eric Cantor was nothing but a winy scumbag obstructionist who did damage to our Nation whenever possible.
    It is true that the guy who beat him is ever worse. But he will not have anywhere near the influence as Cantor.

    The net effect is that the both men will vote the same way in the House on 99% of the issues. But the Republicans lose a power figure and lose a little bit of their overall voice.
    This might be a win for the Tea Party, but it is a bigger win for Democrats.

    How do you think turn-out was tonite Xy, with 65,000 voting in an open primary out of a potential 700,000?
    Should Cantor get to run as a 3rd-party, as current Sen. Murkowski did in Alaska?

    Since the Virginia 7th is only 57% gerry-mandered, and Cantor has won general elections by huge margins,
    he has obviously received serious cross-over Dem Jewish support that did not come out and/or cross over tonite.

    Now, what will be the optics around Boehner tomorrow with Cantor questions ?

    More infighting between Republicans sounds great. Keep it up, guys. Maybe we'll get a congress next year that can actually do things.

    It's complicated because of the fifty different sets of state's rights.
    You will now see a move by GOP states and Reince Priebus to stop open primaries .

    Sounds exactly like here. Run offs have very low voter turnout.

    Again, where have I ever given you the impression that I feel that we're screwed because Cantor lost?

    I do find it amusing how often you all crticize us for not all thinking exactly alike (as, apparently, you all do). Lol.

    If Dems voted in the Dem primary they couldn't cross-over vote in the Republican run-off. Besides, you shouldn't take that post seriously. I wasn't being serious.

    Never once said a vast majority of conservatives are anti-Semitic, either straight-out or implied.
    Why would you ever say such a thing?

    Tell me which demographics I can use to analyze an election, along with other clientele "cards" you find offensive/faux ?

    If it's a simple question would you entertain a "no" answer? Didn't think so.
    Since you didn't ask it, how could I?
    That was like you calling heads with a two-headed coin.

    Once again, a conservative is in denial of who he is .
