7. Cantor is an imbecile and the GOP deserves all the shit he brings down on them.

8. He probably has a keen sense of timing

And this bill is the best way to separate himself from Boner, just two days before a new Congress is about to be installed.

That's why I fear Cantor, he's a much shrewer card player than Boner could ever hope to be. The President will have his hands full for the next two years if Cantor becomes Speaker. Boner will look like the good old days in comparison.
