“Rep. Eric Cantor is out with a tough ad against his primary opponent Dr. Dave Brat for Congress. It is rare for the powerful politician to go on the attack during his bids for re-election.” ~Ryan Nobles, NBC 12, Richmond

Via Norm Leahy at Bearing Drift:

Just a couple of weeks after brushing off his primary opponent, David Brat, Rep. Eric Cantor has coming out swinging against the economic professor, with both a television ad and a website.

….it shows that Mr. Cantor has decided it’s time to play in the 7th CD, and do so with elbows flying. He has to, because, as I wrote on Monday, Mr. Cantor needs not only to put Prof. Brat away, but he has to do it convincingly.

Supposedly, (according to those who make a living off spin) Mr. Cantor has no fear of losing to Dave Brat. It’s just that our public servant is awash in so much moulah he might as well spend it.

Well, that’s kind of an issue of its own, but for another day.

Cantor could be trying to show he’s not ready for the Cialis tub, proving his virility to fellow members who might be thinking of challenging him for Speaker.

It doesn’t matter. The fact that Cantor feels he needs to punch so hard, whether it’s down or sideways, should be very encouraging to Brat right now.

Political reporter Ryan Nobles writes on his blog:

Could he be getting nervous that people have had enough?

” - - - Cantor recently enraged many Republicans by sneaking a Medicare bill through the House by voice vote. - - - “

Hmmmmm - - - ?

Will Doormat Republican Cantor keep his new nickname of “Sneaky?”

Lemme see - - - :
* Eric “Sneaky” Cantor;
* Eric “The House Sneak” Cantor;
* “Sneaky” Eric C.

Sure looks like Boehner is grooming the right replacement to replace him as another Obama-friendly Speaker of the US House of Representatives!

MOVE ON!
FORWARD!

Guess all the Democrat-Lite GOP candidates will have to appeal to the Democrats to help them keep their seats this year. However,having won because of Democrat and “Independent” votes, NONE of them should keep their leadership positions after the election.

Wouldn’t it be nice to see Cancer dumped in a primary? Never happened but fun to think about. The Democrats are probably getting ready to help him with voter fraud if necessary. They know he’ll pay them back with amnesty.

I had high hopes for this one, who quickly turned into a D with an R next to his name.

He needs to be flushed...

Cantor is a Harry Reid wannabe.

The patriotic Democrats whose party was taken over by the communists years ago were far less whiny than the RINOs are now, vis-à-vis the Tea Party.

Is Desperation a cologne? Or an aftershave?
