I might have called him a “two-faced lying son-of-a-*****” but that doesn’t mean I don’t have the highest possible degree of respect for him.
NO apologizing. Sign of weakness.
Remember what THEY called Mr. Bush - and never apologized for any of it?
Com’on, Eric, we’re expecting you to act like a mensch, not a mouse.
How much respect is due anyone who is actively trying to destroy the country?

Posted comment of the day!! Thanks!
Oh quit apologizing to the communist country disorganizer. Someone of his ilk doesn’t deserve any respect.
Can't help it...it's what I've come to expect.
Obama hasn’t EARNED any respect.
Don’t need Reid’s lectures on how to show respect, either.
Uh-oh, here comes the cave. Obama rudely walks out because HE won't change what he's doing, and Cantor apologizes?
and you would be factually correct.
No need to apologize. The executive branch is co-equal with the legislative—not above it. The judicial branch, often treated like a Mount Olympus, is also co-equal.
Hussein has not been treating the legislative branch with respect. So he needs to apologize to you.
Cantor is just trying to make things clear. I don’t believe for a moment that he was anything but prim and proper. The problem is that he simply isn’t rolling over for the Great “O”, that’s his act of lese majeste.
When Obama doesn’t get what he wants he throws a hissy. It’s as simple as that.
I’m betting Obama will try hard not to repeat the performance, he knows he’s not coming off well. Then again, maybe he simply can’t control it. The man has been “strok’d and made much of” his entire life. Certainly no one has ever said no to him his entire time in politics.
One word,Pansy,both of them!
ANYONE that has ANY respect for Obama is either a traitor to our country, a coward, or a fool.
That sounds more like an admission that he can't respect Bama more than it sounds like an apology. (IMHO)
No disrespect to the office, none to the current holder of the position.
"OK. Obama, I'm sorry you're an asshole!"
Sorry, but why show respect to a commie leaning socialist whose intent is turning this once great nation into third world status?
He’s trying to appear rational, but he’s focused on the wrong message.
Carney, just this AM, says Americans don’t understand what a debt ceiling is.
I wonder how many American’s found out their credit limit had been cut, but only after they tried putting something on their card?
I wonder how many had cards like that issued from banks, THEY JUST GOT THROUGH BAILING OUT WITH THEIR TAXPAYER DOLLAR???
I’m telling you, we hire amateurs for communication staff.
Judge to lawyer: “Are you trying to show disrespect for this court?”
Lawyer to judge: “No your honor, I’m try to hide disrespect for this court.”
I’m sorry Mr. President...that you’re a D-bag.
The moment I saw this headline I knew it was AP word twisting.
I can just imagine it.
“I didnt’ mean any disrespect to the president but he’s a horse’s rear end and he needs to get his priorities in order!”
AP translation - “Cantor says he didn’t mean to disrespect the ONE”
On the contrary.
Disrespect is the only thing the Cretin-in-Chief has actually earned during his whole sorry, faked, life.
Isn’t Eric Cantor A JEW? Sounds like Mr. Obama is showing his anti-semetism again...
Liberals forfeited all claim to ‘respect’ after kicking s&^% in W’s face for 8 years.
This news from the White House this afternoon about both sides agreeing on 1.5 trillion dollars in cuts is very likely bull durham.
Got get’em, Eric, give’em Hell!
Is it ok that every time these guys breath there is not 1000 posts of people shouting “CAVE”?
Almost like some people here are hoping for it.
“Then again, maybe he simply cant control it.”
That seems likely. He comes off as mentally unbalanced, living in a self-created parallel universe.
STFU Eric....you DID win, and now you apologize???
Obama threatened Cantor to not call his bluff and now Cantor is respecting the seat of the office of the Presidency NOT OBAMA.
ALL of this crap covers up what Obama said....”Don’t call my BLUFF”!!!! He’s BLUFFING and he just admitted it!!
Never apologize; never explain.
GOP Addendum: no matter how difficult it may be, never roll over on your back and offer your soft, white underbelly and throat to the leftists. Resist the frequently overwhelming temptation to retract, appease, simper, fawn, genuflect and/or grovel.
Eric ,NO apology needed to that Pinko Bastard,This is disrespecting US, if you do,when did those animals ever apologize to Bush??
Our system has three equal branches of government. I do not thing I showed any disrespect towards the office of the president. I have great respect for the office.
never apologize to the enemy when you’re fighting to save your country
double down and call him a slack-ass, chickensh*t coward for not staying until the job was done
You know they’re getting desperate when they start announcing agreements in the hope that will bulldog the repubs into going along.
The pubbies are gaining resolve and the dems are losing their ability to intimidate every day this goes on. It could be the republican reps are starting to pay more attention to their constituents and tuning out the MSM. If they get a chance to recess and go home for a few weeks, it’s all over.
A few townhalls will set them straight.
You didn’t hurt this guy’s feelings
He got pizzed off and had a tantrum when he ran out of adult coping skills
then Harry Reid and the media played you
How about the phrase “We give the president’s presence and his statements all due respect”
And if Sarah was in charge, she’d add “Bless his heart”
Sport to obama voters:KMA
Maybe what set Zero off was Cantor using his middle finger to scratch his chin as Zero frequently does?
AP set him up.
STOP with the apologies, Eric!!!!
“Carry the battle to them. Don’t let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive and don’t ever apologize for anything.” Harry S. Truman
I mean disrespect to Obama every time I say his name. The man deserves no respect from anyone.
Just read my tagline to learn how I feel. I wish others would jump on this bandwagon.
Wow! I feel so much more confident in our country’s future, now that I know Cantor respects Obama. Had me worried there for a minute.
Well, the GOP "leaders" are innately conditioned to cave (keep in mind McConnell's attempt to undercut Boehner's negotiating position). Thus, we are conditioned to expect it, so they bear close watching. If the GOP "leadership" finally, at long last, proves otherwise... great.
I read once that was an actual exchange in an English court of law but I can’t remember who said it.
