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?

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor should NEVER apologize to the pouting man-child currently occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Oh quit apologizing to the communist country disorganizer. Someone of his ilk doesn’t deserve any respect.

Cantor: "Oh, please Mr. Obama, your highness, sir...I'm sorry! So sorry, I'll CAVE for you."

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.

Cantor on Obama: No disrespect intended

Uh-oh, here comes the cave. Obama rudely walks out because HE won't change what he's doing, and Cantor apologizes?

Yeah, right.

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.

ANYONE that has ANY respect for Obama is either a traitor to our country, a coward, or a fool.

Cantor said that he tries to be as respectful as he can

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.

"Eric! You apologize right now for saying the President is an asshole!"

"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.
