The establishment knows Boehner is done and, to avoid a real conservative from taking over as speaker, Cantor is being given the green light to oppose the bill in order to win conservative support. Cantor will be the next (establishment) speaker of thew house and conservatives will cheer thinking they are actually getting change.

Likely scenario. Note all the up and coming guys like Rubio and Ryan are hiding under their desks. Nobody has a stomach for this fight in the beltway GOP.
I called Cantor’s office during the 0baminationCare debate. Eventually, I realized that the young person I was talking to was actually listening, so I laid out a trial sentence about the corruption in DC. The response I got back specifically said, in a very depressed tone, “Tell me about it.”
Those poor kids—interns learning about the level of effete, Byzantine corruption, up close and personal. I’d be angry, were I in their shoes.
So, Cantor? No. I vote West. Give me JUSTICE.
