Eric Cantor is too DAM Liberal????? Post Rating (8 votes)


How does one of the most conservative Repubs lose in the primary because he is too liberal?  This has gotten insane.  How can a Republican stand with the party any longer?  If he is too liberal then what makes a person a "conservative"?

How can there be ANY common ground when you think the most conservative Republican and #2 leader is too liberal?

Ronald Reagan would not recognize the Republican party of today.  Reagan wouldn't have left the Republican Party...The Republican Party would have left him.....

I don't think it had anything to do with him being too liberal.  It was a mix of problems he had.  This article sums it up nicely.  That being said... good on you, you got your shots in a the Republican party again.  My question is.... Why do you care about the winner of this race so much?  The people voted and they elected an underground.  Why do you have your panties in a bunch?

Fun fact about fund raising numbers in this race.  Cantor:  $5,710,000     Brat:  $231,000

Because the Republican Party is rapidly becoming the American equivalent of the Taliban, maybe?  Intolerance, ignorance and conformism to the extreme?

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) — In a development that few had thought possible, Republicans in the Seventh District of Virginia on Tuesday night found an even bigger tool than Rep. Eric Cantor to represent them in the United States Congress.

Apparently deciding that Cantor was insufficiently heartless to represent their district, Republicans turned out to the polls to elect David Brat, a man whose political views “border on sociopathy,” according to exit-poll responses from voters who supported him.

During his concession speech, Rep. Cantor reflected on the mistakes that might have led to his defeat: “Should I have cut more school-lunch programs for poor children? Perhaps. Should I have cast more votes to screw over disaster victims? Definitely. Should I have not said the thing about treating children of immigrants like human beings? Man, do I wish I could take that one back. Hindsight is twenty-twenty, but at the end of the day I was just too damn empathic for this district.”

But Rep. Cantor was gracious in defeat, offering words of congratulation to the victorious Mr. Brat. “The people of the Seventh District have spoken,” he said. “The time has come to pass the torch to a new generation of asshats.”

When asked about the defeat of his longtime colleague in the House, Speaker John Boehner said, “I will give a formal statement as soon as I can stop laughing.”

Cantor's opponent's nickname is "Cooter", lol.

Go Republicans, go, you modern mother f---rs!!

LOL, it may take a couple more election cycles before reality starts "sinking in". But watching them fail to this stunning degree - even if it contaminates us all - is some pretty lively regressive theater. Once again, being on the wrong side of God never works well in one's favor. Especially when you scream about Him being such a hot ally, lol.

Because this race is a perfect description of the Republican Party and the people it represents.  Eric Cantor was not some moderate Republican.  Eric Cantor was not some Republican who trotted out with Obama and signed deals pushing a moderate/liberal agenda.  Eric Cantor was conservative.  Eric Cantor ran against Obama on every issue but wanted to actually look at immigration reform (THIS HAS TO BE DONE) and not bury his head in the sand.

Eric Cantor is not a liberal.  He is VERY far from it.  The Republican Party has been hijacked by the farthest right wing sect out there.  I am not standing against the voters.  I am just pointing out that the Republican Party has attracted the most right wing religious zealots and this is what the Republican Party has become a beacon for.

Spin this however you want but if Laura Ingram is the Republican Party then Ronald Reagan would not be allowed in.

Reagan didn't leave the Republican Party...the Republican Party left Ronald Reagain

Actually, it's the House.


But the key issue is how will this affect Cantor for the rest of the year?  He's a lame duck...

Will the Republicans vote him out of his leadership position?  Who takes over?

I saw Rand in an interview yesterday.  He was talking about working with Harry Reid on getting the close to $2 trillion in corporate profits back into the country.  Having them taxed at 5 to 10% for the next 3 years.  Using the one time windfall for road projects.  It's what Goldwater said - in order to govern you have to compromise.

During the primary campaign, Brat repeatedly accused Cantor of supporting some immigration reform principles, including "amnesty" for undocumented workers. In response, Cantor had sent voters a mailer boasting of his role in trying to kill a House immigration bill that included that provision.

Without passage of immigration reform, most Hispanic voters won't consider voting for a Republican candidate, as Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) have argued. That suggests the party is in deep trouble in the next presidential election where Latinos will play a major role.

The tea party scored a grand prize just when it was on the ropes and desperately needed a victory. Ousting Cantor emboldens them with a bully pulpit to taunt the establishment wing. How long it will last remains to be seen. Right-wing radio host Mark Levin, a Brat supporter, said Tuesday night on Fox News that Cantor's defeat means Republicans should "stop chasing ethnic groups, stop chasing genitalia" and instead listen to conservatives.

LOL............change is good. I mean, isn;t that a Republican mantra?

The flood of illegal immigrants -- particularly children -- crossing into the U.S. along the southern border is at a "crisis" level, creating a humanitarian emergency that both immigration officials and lawmakers are putting at the feet of the Obama administration. 

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer called the overload a "crisis of the federal government's creation." 

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who for years has been warning that the administration's easing of immigration enforcement would create a crisis along the border, said: "President Obama is responsible for this calamity." 

Recriminations are flying as state and federal officials grapple with a surge in illegal immigrant children -- some accompanied, some not -- flowing into Texas. With resources there over-burdened, many of the children and others are being sent to Arizona, in turn overwhelming resources in that state. Arizona officials say they are now rushing federal supplies to a makeshift holding center in Nogales, as it runs low on the basics. 

But some are warning that the administration, rather than tightening enforcement in response, is continuing on the same path of steadily easing off immigration rules.    

"The rising crisis at the border is the direct and predictable result of actions taken by President Obama," Sessions said, adding that "only by declaring to the world that our border is no longer open -- and that the law will be restored -- can this emergency be stopped." 

Some of those warnings are coming from inside the administration. 

According to portions of a memo obtained by Fox News, an official with Customs and Border Protection wrote late last month that current policies are serving as an incentive for more to cross. 

"If the U.S. government fails to deliver adequate consequences to deter aliens from attempting to illegally enter the U.S., the result will be an even greater increase in the rate of recidivism and first-time illicit entries," Border Patrol Deputy Chief Ronald D. Vitiello wrote in the May 30 memo. 

Among the policies that allegedly are creating a magnet for illegal immigrants is what's known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The unilateral policy in 2012 allowed some illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children to defer deportation -- among other criteria, they must have come to the U.S. before they were 16 years old, be younger than 31 on June 15, 2012, and have been in the country since at least June 15, 2007, and have no criminal history. 

The administration extended that program earlier this month, allowing the immigrants to apply for protection from deportation for another two years.  

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said in a statement that the extension and changes would "proactively invite fraud and abuse." 

In December, a U.S. District Court judge in Texas also claimed that federal agents were intercepting human smugglers transporting children at the U.S.-Mexico border -- and then delivering those children to illegal immigrant parents in the U.S. 

The situation is likely more complicated and involves more agencies than the order made it sound. It is a matter of public record that thousands of illegal immigrant children and teens are caught trying to enter the United States, and often sent to federally run care centers while their status is determined. 

Judge Andrew Hanen's order, though, claimed the Obama administration was engaging in a risky practice by delivering some children to their parents. He argued that the practice would only encourage more parents to have their children smuggled over the border, through operations often connected to the drug cartels. 

"These actions are both dangerous and unconscionable," he wrote. 

Further, the administration for years has prioritized deportations to focus on those who commit crimes or pose other threats. Immigration officials have argued that they're simply making the best use of limited resources. But some lawmakers warn that the policies further incentivize people to cross the border illegally. 

Of the nearly 370,000 removals carried out in fiscal 2013 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, 94 percent of them fell into one of two categories -- illegal immigrants caught crossing the border, and illegal immigrants convicted of a crime in the U.S. 

A report by Sessions' office drilled deeper into the data, finding that just 23,000 people were removed from the country last year who did not fall into those categories. 

In the latest policy announcement, the administration is now seeking young lawyers to help provide legal assistance to children in immigration proceedings. Officials say about 100 lawyers and paralegals will be enrolled as members of AmeriCorps in a new division called "justice AmeriCorps." It's a partnership between the Justice Department and the agency that administers AmeriCorps, the Corporation for National and Community Service. 

Further, the White House is seeking an additional $1.4 billion to handle the wave of unaccompanied children making the trek to the U.S., largely from Central America. 

The administration reports that it is catching and removing more people caught illegally crossing the border than at the end of the George W. Bush administration. Further, the administration touts that the percentage of convicted criminals being removed is now at the highest level in five years. 

The Obama administration is hardly the first to face complaints about its immigration enforcement policies. Up until 2006, the George W. Bush and prior administrations allowed a so-called "catch-and-release" practice where non-Mexican migrants were simply released -- many never showed up for their hearings and stayed in the U.S. In 2006, the Bush administration changed the policy so that non-Mexican illegal immigrants caught sneaking into the country would be held until they could be returned. 

But illegal immigrant traffic from Central America is rising once again. 

According to one estimate, the number of unaccompanied children caught on the southern border has exploded -- from 6,500 in 2011 to an estimated 90,000 this year, and nearly 150,000 projected for next year. 

White House spokesman Josh Earnest noted Monday that FEMA has been tapped to lead a "government-wide effort" to address the influx of children, many of whom he said are "escaping abuse or persecution." 

He clarified that facilities in Texas, Oklahoma and elsewhere are largely receiving the unaccompanied minors, while illegal immigrant families are being sent to Nogales, Ariz. He disputed criticism of the administration's enforcement record, saying that process is "as robust as ever." 

"There's no doubt that the president understands that protecting our border security is a key component of our national security," Earnest said. 

Asked about the influx from Central America, Santa Cruz County Sheriff Tony Estrada, in Arizona, said it has been fueled in large part by conditions in those countries -- "corruption, poverty and violence." 

"I think they're trying to escape from all that," he said. 

Estrada acknowledged the strong possibility that many of the migrants dropped off at bus stations will simply disappear. But some, he said, will probably stay in touch with immigration authorities, because they "feel that door is opening a little bit for them." He said "humanity usually calls for" more compassion toward women and children. 

Regarding the busing of illegal immigrants in Arizona, ICE has said it does not want to lock up minors in detention centers or split up families. 

According to ICE, the family units "will be released under supervision and required to report in to a local ICE office near their destination address within 15 days, where their cases will be managed in accordance with current ICE enforcement priorities." 

Fox News' William LaJeunesse and Aalia Shaheed and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

I kept wondering why you didn't link this article.  Then, I found out.  I think we can all figure out why.  Satire indeed.  So much hate for a man that nobody really knows anything about.  I can't say it surprises me... you guys are all about tolerance.  Unless of course, someone believes in God and/or they are a Republican.

Sounds like Rand might the kind of man that can work with the "other side" to get things done - We need a executive like that in the worst way.

62% of Americans support Immigration Reform.

It grows, not decreases, as time goes by. It is not about votes, my challenged FOX aficianado, it's about doing the right thing.

By the way, the link, Grimm, lol, was in the post. You wondered if it was satire or not?

Don't you hate Mexicans? What the hell are they worth? What did they ever do but flood our borders and make life in America a living hell?

Yeah? He does? Are you sure?

Since you've discovered the man at the same time I did - today - maybe we can arrive at a sensible read on who he is.

I see you;re still sporting your bizarre economic - and even more amazing, Constitutional - assumptions about other people. That must rock, being wrong all the time. But then, you seem to be a Republican, so I guess any more, it just goes with the territory.

I don;t hate the man, stud. I am delighted he beat that troglodyte who was the next Leader of the Opposition. Watching your weird party punt is always great.

Immigration Reform is a broad term is it not - Securing the border is a form a Immigration reform.

I support  Immigration reform too , 

Ask the question like this - Do you support making people who enter the country Illegally  US citizens?

See the response then

OK, but let's ask the question in a somewhat saner way - or is it your opinion that the Immigration Reform Plan should not include any form of even conditional amnesty?

That would bring it around to "abortion"-quality intransigence, where no comp[romise is possible. That is actually where it stands now - a situation where the Right literally will not countenance any amnesty provisions whatsoever.

It's as if 200 years of history and precedence mean diddly squat, because there have been blanket amnesties in the past - total and unequivocal. We must have really suffered when we offered those.

Can you detail how bad it became for us all?

Immigration reform is also about allowing foreigners that graduate with advanced degrees to stay in the US and use the education they got here in jobs that produce economic gain.  Why force them to leave?

So who have we become? Remember when we bragged about taking in the refuse, abandoned and abused members of the world?

This is why we had 60,000 kids cross our borders last year -

"Just last year alone, minors accounted for one in 13 people caught by Border Patrol and 17 percent of them were under the age of 13. According to the LA Times, up to 120 unaccompanied children cross the border each day. And a 2012 study by the Vera Institute of Justice found that 40 percent of unaccompanied children may be eligible for “statuses that exempt them from deportation. Among the most likely possibilities: asylum, because they fear persecution in their home country, or a special immigrant juvenile status for children abused or abandoned by a parent.” Children who are fortunate enough to have representation are nine times more likely to win their cases, but only seven percent of those placed in federal custody between 2007 and 2009 won their cases.

The study, “A Treacherous Journey: Child Migrants Navigating the U.S. Immigration System,” found that migrant children, 90 percent of whom come from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, often flee to avoid increasing drug cartel violence in their home communities, including escaping “severe intrafamilial abuse, abandonment, exploitation, deep deprivation, forced marriage, or female genital cutting. Others are trafficked to the United States for sexual or labor exploitation.” And once they’re in the United States and caught by immigration agents, migrant children have to defend themselves in immigration court just as adults would. Courts have no obligation to fund lawyers for the kids so they have to find representation through advocacy organizations and pro bono law programs."

Go Republicans, go, you modern mother f---rs!!

LOL, it may take a couple more election cycles before reality starts "sinking in". But watching them fail to this stunning degree - even if it contaminates us all - is some pretty lively regressive theater. Once again, being on the wrong side of God never works well in one's favor. Especially when you scream about Him being such a hot ally, lol.
So how did Cooter do it?  The Tea Party didn't come in and throw a bunch of money around.  The right wing radio world didn't embrace him - although I heard Laura Ingram did.  So how did this happen?

Virginia has an open primary system.  Since there wasn't a Democratic primary for Cantor's seat - do you think a bunch of Dem's helped to vote Cantor out?  Hmmm....
