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.

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)

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.

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.

That seems likely. He comes off as mentally unbalanced, living in a self-created parallel universe.

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.

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.

C’mon Eric
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”

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.
