did cantor set-up boehner?

cantor was actually on msnbc today saying "we have the votes"

did boehner rely on cantor to deliver the votes?

i can't imagine anything more embarrassing for a senator, let alone the speaker of the house,

than to have to pull your own bill for lack of votes.

1. The Majority Leader is in charge of the Whips and if the Whips can't get their

assigned members to vote the way that the Speaker wants, well, then it's time to change the Majority Leader and the Whips or, that all stays the same and the Boner is flacid...

9. That's EXACTLY what I have been thinking since I saw the news.

Cantor was just too smiley as he vacated the Chambers in the underground tunnel tonight... reminded me of that self-serving slimy smile on mittens' face after his pseudo press conference on Benghazi on 9/11... that "I just took a dump in the top drawer of your desk and I'm soooo proud of myself" look. And he always looked like a bad ventriloquist standing behind the Speaker whenever they were on camera, mouthing the talking point lies and making sure, shiv in hand, that he said all the words.

Here we go.

4. I wonder, too ...

Did you see Cantor's shit-eating grin as they walked back to their offices after the vote was cancelled tonight?

Cantor looked like he was truly enjoying it all.

It's time for the Republicans to take back their party, and give the teabaggers the what-for. Won't happen, though.

21. Yeah, we hoped mittLies was DONE at

that point but I didn't pass it around back then when I bookmarked it from LunaSea.. didn't want to jinx it. But, after it was OVER.. it's the most fitting Forked Graphic Ever!

5. If he were innocent he would not have looked so jubilant

He must have set him up. How badly he must want to be Speaker to stab his fellow rep in the back...

8. Cantor is a bigger threat than Boehner.

Boehner is a laughing stock while Cantor is a true-believer and a teabagger.

13. Thanks for asking.. I saw that today ..about

Cantor saying he had the votes and then.. guess what, Plan B-oner didn't have the votes. They're so serious about their fiscal foolery they went home for Christmas.

17. It seems to be their MO as of late

Mcsquirrelly had to filibuster his own bill a week or so ago and now boehner has to do the same. If all of this wasn't so serious it would be fall down funny

18. they trapped themselves by purging moderates & giving Teahadists so much power

it was all very predictable once Newt, Nixon and Atwater cooked up the caldron of Southern Strategy poison decades ago. The Dark Magic of curses and evildoing has been successful so far--they have half the country hypnotized into thinking Iran is going to nuke us, just like Iraq, and Obama is a Kenyan spy.

Their demise is nearby indeed--the only ones left are the most Macchiavellian (Cantor) and the most insane (even DeMint left--can you imagine what's left? let's just call them the Confederate Officer Class.)

And we Northern Urban Weak Sisters are the enemy. Rape and pillage is rampant and the drunken barkeep (Boehner) is way out of his depth.

it's like surfing on top of a landslide. You can't really make plans.

19. Maybe not 'set up' but Cantor is a slimy opportunist of the 1st Order.
