Eric Cantor doing the Rino walk.....

Posted on 10/17/2011 7:12:42 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

Way to go Cantor! That didn't take long! You big Weenie!

...A top Republican in Washington dramatically altered his stance on protesters involved in Occupy Wall Street just one week after comparing the movement to “angry mobs”. Eric Cantor, the Republican majority leader in the House of Representatives, told Fox News on Sunday that Republicans agreed there was “too much” income disparity in the country. “More important than my use of the word [‘mobs’] is that there is a growing frustration out there across the country and it is warranted. Too many people are out of work,” he said.

The man that whipped the TARP vote and now lies about his support.

The GOP is the stupidest party I’ve ever seen.

The only thing they are capable of engineering is their own defeat.

The income disparity that Cantor speaks to is caused by too many people on the public dole. Until this nation brings accountablility for individual well being back tpo the individual, the rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer!!! Now, I am not against helping people in real need, but the greatness of this nation comes from individual efforts, not federal government cradle to grave induced poverty. The GOP would be wise to stifle Cantor and put someone like Jeb Hensarling or Marco Rubio upfront!!! Cantor is not the man!!!

Only one thing to conclude.

GOP has internal polling that confirms the BS media polling about huge numbers of people agreeing with OWS is for real.

Time to head for the mountaintop in Idaho yet?

Do the Democrats ever walk back any statement or indicate any slight agreement with the right? Do they apologize for calling Tea Party people Nazis, teabaggers etc.? You don’t lead by bowing to majority opinion, you lead by CHANGING the opinion to your views. I never see GOP doing that. They just say what sounds nice so they won’t be made fun of on SNL. They seem, more than anything, to want to be popular.

I caught a little of Chris Wallace interviewing Sunday. He was aggressive and seemed especially pushy with questioning. Cantor should have pushed back. Wallace did more talking than his guests as if trying to make HIS point. Don’t like him much, especially now. Kind of a smug liberal like the others. But Cain wouldn’t have let him get away with it.

Acknowledging a complaint and concern doesn’t make him a RINO.

It doesn’t mean we agree to their socialist demands simply to acknowledge that a lot of people are concerned about it.

You are right on the money!!! Yep, the establishment GOP wants Mitt Romney for POTUS. That ain’t gonna happen. Herman Cain is on fire. The GOP rank & file want Cain. Cain, my friends will capture up to thirty percent of the American Black vote and a respectable 40% of Hispanic votes. Combine that with the rest of the voting groups and Cain wins in a landslide. This guy Cain has both smarts, charisma & oodles of charming personality. He is the “man” who tells it like it is. He is the man with bold, fresh new ideas. IMHO, Romney & Perry are just your run-of-the-mill politicians. In fact, the only other GOPer worth anything is Newt Gingrich. However, the dream ticket would be Cain/Rubio. Folks, get on it!!!

A salient point, and you’re suspicion is most likely quite correct.

Though I’m always suspicious of polling, no matter where it comes from, there’s a possibility that the Occupiers crowd is getting their message across effectively, which would reflect in internal GOP polling, as you suggest. If that’s the case, then naturally the GOP is going to have a tip of the hat to public opinion, because they’re campaigning for their re-elections as well.

I really wish I had access to some of those numbers; it would prove enlightening to see in which direction the GOP will go. If the numbers are significantly in favor of the Occupiers, then I would postulate that, politically speaking, the GOP has nowhere to go but left in order to avoid alienating the general public. If a majority of Americans have indeed come to agree with the Occupiers, then Obama will (effectively) campaign on a left-populist platform.

Mind you, it’s hypothetical, but this nod in the direction of the Occupiers from Cantor is of some significance.
