Question: The Haley Barbour question, is she qualified to be president, yes or no?
Cantors answer: Haley Barbour is um, he, he is an expert, that guy is one of the smartest people that I know, and he is a real leader.
Questioner: And he didnt answer the question (laughing).
Cantors answer: Smiling (in affirmative), silence.
Questioner’s conclusion: Like I said to our friend Mike Huckabee last night, I think that Sarah Palin scares main stream republicans like Eric Cantor and Haley Barbour as much as she scares the democrats.
Unfortunately, their fear is not of Sarah Palin herself, but of her being on the ticket in 2012 and being soundly defeated ...they have no confidence in her ability to win...magritte
