Establishment Campaign Strategy: Shameless, Cowardly, and Perfidious
redstate.com ^ | 5/27/14 | Daniel Horowitz

I’m hearing some breaking news down in Virginia’s Seventh District. Eric Cantor is planning to resign his seat and take over the helm at the hawkish immigration group, Numbers USA. Take a look at this mailer from the Cantor campaign, which was distributed to Republican voters in his district, and that is the only conclusion one can draw from its content.

Looking at this mailer, the only observation the reader can make is that Cantor is joining the immigration hawks. After all, he would never lie to us, would he?

First, when was the last time Cantor or anyone else in leadership ever used the term “illegal alien?”

Second, is there any limit to the degree of lying that may be deemed off limits during the campaign?

This is a man who has spent the entire year pushing for the Dream Act amnesty, even while Obama suspends our enforcement laws, yet he has the impertinence to tell his constituents that he is standing up to Obama. Will he be man enough to send out another mailer touting his support for citizenship and benefits for two million illegals and chain migration for all their families? After all, he is voicing support for this proposal even as he is sending out campaign literature to the contrary.

In the event that Cantor decides to stay in Congress, the only way to ensure that this mailer remains truthful is for him to commit to block any amnesty bill from the floor as Speaker or Majority Leader.

Ironically, we are likely to see amnesty pass because so many incumbents are winning reelection. Yet, the reason they are winning is precisely because they are campaigning against amnesty (and on other conservative positions).

If America “had a dream” to live prosperous and free,
Then the dream must killed, and consumed you see.
The Obamavultures continue feasting, while Boehner sits still,
“Both” parties know our pain as required collateral damage to fulfill.

What word did our Doormat Republicans not understand,
When Obama was first crowned The Tyrant of the Land?
Was it “Fundamentally” or “Transform” or “The United States of America?”

Why are these confused Leader Doormat Republicans still kept in power?
Why haven’t our TEA Party House Members sent Boehner to the back bench?
What does it take be it Benghazi, NSA, IRS, DOJ, or Delay to Death of our Vets?
Who are the Patriot House Members of “both” Parties to vote out Boehner?

When do We, the People rise up and declare that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!?
When do our elected House Members stand and deliver?
When does the well-deserved Impeachment of Obama begin?
When do our House Constitutional Checks and Balances kick in?

Back in DC, things are as calm as can be,
Obama lies, frames, blames, denies and delays,
Allowing the Obamavultures to feast as before,
While Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, Ryan, and Issa,
Hold open the race to the bottom door - - - -.

It is time, - - - - time a change in 2014.
