Skip to comments.Cantor faces tea party fury in his back yard

Just a few miles from his family home, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) felt the wrath of the tea party Saturday, when activists in his congressional district booed and heckled the second-most powerful House Republican.
They also elected one of their own to lead Virginias 7th Congressional District Republican Committee, turning their back on Cantors choice for a post viewed as crucial by both tea party and establishment wings in determining control of the fractured state GOP.

I hope Cantor loses soon or in November.
Cantor went over to the dark side rinos, allies of the communist democrats. I thought something was wrong with him when McCain and him were fondling each other all the time. Too bad, he might have been a contender as a conservative but the rinos and liberal live in a bubble.
When I sit here and I listen to Mr. Brat speak I hear the inaccuracies my familys here. Cantor said. As he was interrupted by the raucous crowd, Cantors anger was evident: Thats enough we are a country of free speech, so decencys also part of this.
Now where have I heard someone use their family in a primary?
“I would like to thank my family for giving me such support and strength through this most despicable (Indiana District 22 Representative) campaign. They have had to endure the barrage of spiteful and hateful letters to the editor. “
The “ivory tower” defense when Cantor has been in the real estate business almost all his life? So much for the “glass houses” principle.
And that’s not his own startup, but his daddy’s business. Someone should have yelled “You didn’t build that!”
Who do “We, the People” want to elect to rule over us for the next 2 years?
* The Democrat Party that condones their politicians lies, denials and refusals to comply with Federal Laws?
* The Doormat Republicans such as Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, and Ryan who cave-in every time just to get along with the Democrats?
* Or a politician that stands “ - - - for core conservative principles of limited government, low taxes and a free-market economy. - - - “ ?
You’re going down Eric...you and all your amnesty-loving RINOs.
Support his conservative challenger, folks:
Unfortunately, Dr. Dave Brat did have to address the inevitable consequences of the George Soros / Eric Cantor smear campaign that has been vomited through the media over the last two weeks. There were a couple questions concerning whether or not Dr. Brat was a liberal college professor. He pointed out that he is a professor of economics (a subject Eric Cantor seems to know absolutely nothing about), but that there is nothing liberal about him. He is a life long Republican, who like many of us, is extremely disappointed in the current Republican Leadership in Congress, led by Eric Cantor.
” - - - As a life long Republican and economist, I know how to get our economy back on track, get our citizens back to work, restore our credit rating, and secure a better future for our children and grandchildren. I am committed to being a servant-leader as our Founders intended, and I look forward to the opportunity to fight for you in Washington. - - - “
GO DAVE !!!!!
Make us proud!

Why the heck are Republicans still allowing open primaries?
Thats enough we are a country of free speech, so decencys also part of this.

Never did ‘like’ this Cantor guy...Notice how it is ‘free speech’ for HIM, but those that are opposing him are not allowed to express free speech.
I will grant that his family shouldn’t be attacked or ‘personal attacks’ on him while his family may be present BUT these guys choose to bring their family to the rallies but ‘we’ can’t say anything when the family is ‘fighting us’.
Kind of like the guy robbing a bank, using his wife as the getaway car driver, then claim that YOU made his children orphans cause he is going to jail and she got killed in the shootout.
Bolling said in a statement. While the voice of every Republican should be heard, our challenge is to figure out how to be a conservative party, without allowingFixed.
the most extreme voices of the daycore conservative principles of limited government, low taxes and a free-market economy to control our party and determine its future direction.
The elites are thin skinned and do not wish to be challenged. The Democrats are gearing up for a major assault on the first amendment. Unfortunately, when the time arrives to be counted, the GOPe will likely be on the side of “control”, not liberty. After all it was George W. Bush who gave us the Patriot Act.
America need beastiality NOW.
Vote the EXEMPT GOP, because gay marriage by Romney,
ObamaCARE by Romney, fiscal irresponsibility by all of them,
integrity abdication everywhere,
support of al Qaeda, and their deliberately open borders,
are JUST NOT ENUF.
“Why the heck are Republicans still allowing open primaries?”
I’ve been wondering that for year. I think the answer is that the Elite simply have more control that way. They have the money to pull-in non-Republicans to their candidate, which the outsiders usually are not able to do. I suspect that will be the case here.
If it were a closed Primary, Cantor would go down by a large margin. People are SICK OF HIM, particularly due to his ‘leadership’ on Amnesty.
