Chuck Todd (NBC): Children Flooding the Border Ousted Cantor
Breitbart TV ^ | June 10, 2014 | Breitbart

Posted on 06/10/2014 8:51:56 PM PDT by I still care

NBC's chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd pointed to a story originally broken Breitbart Texas abut the U.S.-Mexican border being flooded with illegal immigrant children as the main reason behind the "perfect storm" that caused House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) to loss the GOP primary to Tea Party challenger Dave Brat.

Todd credited the grassroots anti immigration movement reaction to the story.

I think the Republican Party is getting spanked tonight.

We elect these people, and then they pointedly ignore everything we say. And we say, stop letting thousands of illegals cross the border and giving them our hard earned tax dollars.

For the past few days, even the MSM has had pictures of the thousands of kids from Mexico and other countries that Obama has been flooding the US with. Well, the GOP is hearing us tonight. The sad thing is, it won't change them. They'll just pout a little, and try to figure out another way to manipulate us. An elitist is an elitist. They have no respect for us. And they certainly hate the TEA party.

I do get some pleasure out of "rising from the dead".

The GOP-E Leadership in the US House, (Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan), is always gullible to Obama’s tricks.

Consequently, Boehner, Cantor and Ryan, have all pledged to ram through this unpopular Obama Amnesty Bill due to Obama’s illegal decision to flood the USA with children from Mexico and Central America.

It is time to kick the GOP-E out of Congressional Leadership!

Spanked, huh..?

I’m bellowing “NO MORE WIRE COAT-HANGERS” and am setting up the water boarding gear.

A week ago Brat was down 13 points in the polling, now he wins by 12.

That’s a 25 percent swing and I suspect the illegal children crossing the border made a big difference in this election.

The GOP someday will have to decide who they serve. The corporatists or the middle class constituents who vote for them.

Is there any possibility that Democrats voted in this primary?

Chuck Todd is right, but why didn’t it work in South Carolina? Shocking, really, that Graham dodged another bullet. Graham and Cantor carry the water for 60 thousand illegals, Mexican kids no less.

The United States can’t stop kiddies from breaching our border! Treason.

Since it is the Obama Administration that is 100% responsible for children flooding our borders, it is safe to say that Chuck Todd credits the Obama Administration for ousting Cantor.

The worst part is they openly disrespect American workers and unemployed. Where within these immigration reform bills are there any incentives to the hiring of citizens first or making sure that the borders are secured and enforced? Congress could give states the right to police their own borders. All we have heard this year from the GOP is talk of compromise and surrender in some form or another. We finally force the hand of the President with sequestration and have Obamacare’s failure front and center and our feckless leadership manage to continue to piss away the advantage talking a potential compromise(aka surrender) on an amenesty bill crafted by Chuck Schumer while the President just ignores the law entirely.

I don’t know what in the hell those guys on capital hill are smoking but they need to come down from that high. Tonight hopefully jolted them. We are not serfs to be ordered and shamed into submission to serve corporate or political interests of a narrow elite. WE DO NOT ELECT THEM TO GO TO WASHINGTON TO COMPROMISE WITH LEFTISTS!

As per Ballotpedia: Primary: Virginia is one of 14 states that uses an open primary process, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party’s primary.

Voter registration: Voters had to register to vote in the primary by February 10, 2014.

Don’t know why the question of Dems voting in this primary matters. There is no dem or any other candidate on the ballot in November. David Bratt will be the next Representative of the 8th Congressional Distrct of Virginia.

Yes, it is an open primary. I am sure there were a lot of cross over votes. But the victory is so big that just can’t be all of it.

I totally believe crossover voters helped Brat, not that I don’t think that he is one smart dude, because he is.

It is kind of a double “sweet”… they just hosed themselves by elevating this Smart feller.

Everybody in the country is now about to realize just how smart he is.

It’s a BINGO!

Brat does have a Dem opponent in November. He’s another professor at Brat’s college. He was selected by the Dems when Cantor looked to be a shoe-in, so probably not a very strong or serious candidate.

Senator Cornyns info—he’s all into taking care of the “children”. He fell right into the Obama/Jarrett trap. I told him that I don’t see how he could get much support by supporting law breakers and not looking out for American taxpayer citizens that elect him. It’s time to flood the offices. I don’t want staph infections everywhere.

I think the kids flooding in mattered. But the big question now is what is the federal government going to do with them now? anything short of sending them back will simply fire up the citizens more.

So, if you were a democrat, why would you vote for the anti-immigration guy?

On Hannity, which he was great, he said the way to curb illegal immigration was to show people who live with dictators how free markets make for a healthy economy, so people do not have to leave their countries. He pointed out that China and India are feeding their billions of people because of free market principles. After the war, we showed the way to Japan and Germany and they became our friends.

It matters if the crossovers were an organized Dem effort to help kill Cantor to perpetuate the “Tea Party Extremists” narrative across other races.

The Dems believe that narrative works for them in a lot of places. They also think that the GOP standing firm against immigration reform works for them in a lot of places. I think they’re wrong on those presumptions in many ways, at least in the sense that the issues convey some sort of extra benefit or advantage they didn’t already have.

“Todd credited the grassroots anti immigration movement reaction to the story.”

Thus feeding the “Republicans are RACISTS!!” meme.

You’re not even allowed to register as a Democrat or Republican in Virginia. Everyone is a registered independent. Central Virginia is very conservative on immigration.

Maybe Graham cornered the market on Diebold hackers today. Cantor didn’t think he needed any and spent all his money on steak dinners instead.

I keep thinking of the Gandhi quote:

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

Conservatives have been ignored, mocked and now fought by the GOProgressives.

Slowly but surely, one election at a time, we WILL win.

Yeah, some like Cornyn, McConnell and Graham won their primary races. It’s disappointing, but they weren’t ringing endorsements, especially in Cornyn’s and Graham’s cases where over 40% of the primary voters rejected them.

We’ll keep watching but I think Cornyn and Graham will need to move to the right in order to retain their seats in 6 years as more and more people wake up and pay attention to their tricks of the trade.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS WHAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS INVOLVED IN. THEY ARE USING THESE CHILDREN TO MEET THEIR NEEDS! THEY ARE CORRUPT!

When will Americans wake up as to what this misadministration is doing to our country?

This is when a voluntary Tea Party state convention would help. Voluntary unity around one candidate is not too much to ask in these times.

Embarrassingly, it’s going to happen to us again in the 2016 Republican nomination fight. The Establishment must be licking their chops, already. Rita

This is anecdotal for sure, but as someone who is married to a Latina, and who lived in South America for a number of years, it is my feeling that the recent flood of immigrants will be seen by most Hispanics as a tragedy that can only be avoided by closing the borders.

Many Latinos that I know feel this way. Admittedly these are firmly entrenched people, legal citizens, and they see the threat to their jobs too, and want something done about it.

What percentage of all Hispanics in this country? Hard to say. But more than you might think.

Even if you limit to three or four legitimate, qualified primary candidates like Cruz, Scott Walker, Rand Paul, etc., etc., you still have to PICK one to be able to beat out Jeb Bush.

This is the one time the grassroots Tea Party’s lack of machine leadership realy hurts. No one to scream, “SNAP OUT OF IT!”, “UNIFY, or LOSE!”
