Eric Cantor disses Trump for president [Cantor slams Donald's push on Obama's eligibility]
WND ^ | April 12, 2011 | Joe Kovacs

Posted on 04/13/2011 2:15:35 PM PDT by RobinMasters

When it comes to a possible run for the presidency by Donald Trump, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is apparently not among those in the real-estate tycoon's camp, citing Trump's push to make sure President Obama is constitutionally eligible for the job.

During an interview on CNN's "American Morning" today, Cantor was asked, "Would you support a Donald Trump candidacy, especially with all this birther talk?"

The Republican from Virginia said, "No, I don't think he is really serious when we launch a – see a campaign launched on the birther issue."

CNN host Kiran Chetry then asked, "But don't you get nervous? You want to defeat the president in 2012. And you want a Republican to take over the White House. Is Donald Trump your best hope right now?

"No, I don't think so," Cantor responded.

Trump has recently skyrocketed to the top of several polls regarding 2012 presidential challengers to Obama.

Mr Canter can explain to We the People at some point exactly why the Rinocrat Oligarchy has permitted the farce of the Obamantion to occur and continue. Was it because of the “opportunity “ an Obama presidency “presented” to the Oligarchy?....

...the “quid pro qou” was that he open the doors of the treasury to looting by the oligarchy, their friends and family.

Trump is a lefty fraud and a financial failure. Anyone who votes for that joker would probably also buy a used car from Bozo the Clown.

I have no faith in Cantor. He appears with the creep Joe Scarborough all the time - has dissed the Ground Zero Mosque controversy - and is a generally greasy pol with the ridiculous moniker of a “Young Turk.”

Rush has alluded to it, and I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.

Cantor and Priebus and even Coulter have tried to distance themselves from this.

If Trump turns out to be a stalking horse for Obama so that he can come out and show the BC after all, or somehow make use of this “crisis” then he will take us all down with him.

With all that is going on , the geek chorus address Trump and the BC . It's a head fake . They cannot defended their weaknesses so rather than attack the Dem's they turn on Trump. These people are pathetic . Heard a Cantor on radio , a slippery hack.

“Young Turk.”

Rhymes with Young Jerk, so the moniker isn’t far off, just focused on the wrong end of the alphabet.

Trump has spoke on other issues..China, Rezko, Iraq and in a very conservative manner. Doubt he will be the republicans choice to run for president but in the meantime..he is swaying people in a positive way. We have a military doctor doing time in Ft Leavenworth for questioning Obama’s bc...just watch the ride.

A geek, slippery hack: you summed it up perfectly. Months ago, during the Ground Zero Mosque (which is completely unresolved), the idiot Scarborough (go home, Joe, we don’t want you in NYC!) asked Cantor his opinion. Basically, like the great Chris Christie, he said it was an overblown contraversy - let’s not get excited about it. There and then, I knew he was a loser.

Whatever The Donald does - and I’m not sure of what he’s about - he was against the Ground Zero Mosque from Day 1. Like my idol, Sarah Palin.

The Republican from Virginia said, "No, I don't think he is really serious when we launch a – see a campaign launched on the birther issue."

He doesn't know much about campaigns, then.

Loser campaigns stress amorphous, non-falsifiable words like "competence" around.

Winning campaigns deal with issues that can be expressed clearly, and also give some insight into the mindset of the candidate.

1976: Reagan was losing when he was running on a $90 billion dollar budget cut (which shows you how paltry today's discussion is). He started winning, and big when he made the Panama Canal a central issue in the race. He wound up getting more votes in primaries than Ford. The Panama Canal and "Drill Baby Drill" are ideas that are succinct, and also give you an idea of where the candidate would stand on other issues. After Carter won, many Chuck Percy/Lowell Weicker style Republicans voted with Jimmy Carter to provide the 2/3rds majority needed to ratify a bad treaty.

It should be noted that Trump also is running on the aggressive use of U.S. air power whenever desired to serve putative U.S. interests and pushing back against Red China.

Personally, I think Trump is a phony, and I wouldn't want to choose between him and Obama. On the other hand, as long as he is not running as an independent, he can do the party a favor by providing a place at the table for those who are represented by his arguments.

Like Palin, he keeps opponents on the defensive.

This is a great political move from the right. To dismiss this issue fires up the base and now, thanks to Mr. Trump, independents. Trump is the lone man and doing a great job.

In the past, I’ve dumped on Trump for making BDS statements.

But . . . . if the establishment Republicans are going to start attacking Trump, I may have to change my mind.

The establishment Republicans have reached rock bottom in the well of irrelevancy . . . . . . . . and they’ve started to dig!!!

I’m proud to call myself a Tea Party Reagan Republican and will do whatever I can in 2012 to defeat Obama, the Democrats and the establishment Republicans (RINOS)!!!

When so many folks on our side want the birthers to sit down and shut up, it makes me think that there is something very sinister going on ‘neath the radar. Why would so many of ours sip the koolaid unless there is some hardball blackmailing going on? Nobody, and I mean nobody, judges,
representatives or senators, has the balls to stand up and say that something’s rotten in Denmark and let’s get to the bottom of it. Trump’s the only one, but he’s not an elected official. Something stinks to high heaven. sd

And the moon is made of green cheese.

Sure. But what about Richard Hoagland, famous "Facer."

The "Face on Mars" was a giant conspiracy as far as he was concerned, with NASA hiding proof of ancient civilization on mars.

So NASA spent millions of dollars, took some high-res pictures of Cydonia, and set the record "straight."

Except for Hoagland. And for that matter, NASA setting the record straight about a supposed NASA conspiracy just causes more conspiracy theories.

That will happen here, even if Trump is not a "stealth agent" of the left.

I'll hold judgement till Friday's interview.

You give Obama and his gang far more credit for strategic shrewdness than they have demonstrated. It is not conspiratorial for so many to ask to be revealed what someone is spending large sums to hide. The conspiracy was by those hiding the truth, the “astroturfers,” and now the real grass is growing up through the astroturf and they are not handling it particularly well.
