It is not enough for either us or our Republican congressmen to sit on the sidelines with Obamacare’s mandates ever approaching. It is time to take action. As I explained last week, Rep. Steve King has filed a discharge petition on legislation to repeal Obamacare. If he gets 218 signatures on his petition, Nancy Pelosi is forced to have a vote on the legislation whether | Read More »
Does Josh Marshall Owe Eric Cantor An Apology For Inciting Violence Against Cantor’s Family?
Josh Marshall leveled a ridiculous attack on Eric Cantor the other day saying that, “Cantor’s behavior is shameful beyond imagining” in trying to say the violence and threats of violence against Congressmen is bipartisan. Numerous others on the left took up Josh Marshall’s attacks on Cantor urging Cantor be condemned. Some members of the House, including Alan Grayson, urged Eric Cantor to resign for his | Read More »
Eric Cantor’s Health Care Memo
Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) has prepared this memo (PDF) on the impact of the Obamacare legislation. The memo specifically targets vulnerable Democrats and highlights how people in their districts will be negatively impacted. Cantor writes If we can convince enough of these 37 Members (along with the 39 Democrats who already voted no) to reconsider and switch their position on the bill, I know that | Read More »
Who is Ed Schultz?
I’ve never heard of the guy, but apparently Ed Schultz is an MSNBC host. It should come as no surprise that he is engaging in a level of hyperbole that MSNBC, CNN, and the rest of the MSM gang would be blowing up as the lead story had a Republican done it. Look, if you will, at what they do every time Sean Hannity, Rush | Read More »
Clarifying Cantor’s Position
Apparently some folks have encountered an intern in Eric Cantor’s office who is doing the man no favors articulating his position on Joe Wilson. Eric Cantor was the first member of Leadership to stand with Rep. Wilson. On Sunday, he said that Rep. Wilson has already apologized, that the President accepted, and it was time to move on. Second, earlier today, at the House GOP | Read More »
Democratic National Committee Accuses Eric Cantor of Stoking Nazism
The Democrats just can’t get their talking points right on Eric Cantor (R-VA). It was only last year when Cantor’s name was mentioned as a possible Vice Presidential pick that the Democrats wanted everyone to know he’s a Jew. They didn’t mention the religion of any of the other potential candidates. Now, however, they are accusing Eric Cantor, who is Jewish, of fostering Nazism in | Read More »
Is Eric Cantor About to Fail? Better Hope Not
GET ON THE PHONE NOW According to the online left, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is whipping Republican votes for H.R. 2346, the 2009 Supplemental Appropriations Act. You need to get your members of Congress to toe the line on this. We need to defeat this bill. The GOP had been signaling it would vote en masse against the legislation. That Hoyer is getting Republican | Read More »
The Return of the Politics of Personal Destruction
During the Clinton years, Newt Gingrich and Ken Starr were household names vilified as Republican Torquemadas. During the Bush years, the Democrats turned the Republicans into the party of Trent Lott, Tom DeLay, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, and Mark Foley. It was this type of politics that candidate Barack Obama campaigned to end. In fact, Obama was often quoted saying we need to get away | Read More »
The Orchestrated Effort to Start Limbaugh vs. Cantor
I told you yesterday that the ABC News story saying Cantor rebuked Limbaugh was an organized effort on the left. Today we find out why. The Politico publishes a list of the people Nancy Pelosi hates. Rush Limbaugh and Eric Cantor are the top two guys on the right that she hates. It’s kind of sad Boehner and McConnell aren’t up there. But Cantor and | Read More »
How is this a rounding error?
I mentioned earlier that the Democrats’ math does not add up when it came to jobs numbers. Congressman Eric Cantor has prepared a chart that shows just how screwed up the White House’s numbers are. The White House attributes the error to a rounding error. That doesn’t quite add up though. Small states have significant deviations from totals by the state versus total by the | Read More »
Cantor to Run for Whip
I have just heard from Eric Cantor’s office that Eric will announce at 12:30 p.m. his intention to run for House Republican Whip. Cantor, elected in 2000, won his Richmond-area Congressional seat last night with 64% of the vote and received the highest total vote of any Virginia Congressman—including Democrats. (221,467 votes) Back in August 27, 2008, we endorsed Eric Cantor for Vice President because | Read More »
The McCain Veep Pick
I’ve said for months it was going to be Tim Pawlenty. It is the most obvious choice, though I think Eric Cantor would be the more exciting pick. I am confident, based on conversations, that the top three picks are Cantor, Pawlenty, and Romney. Who do you think it is? Who Will It Be?
