3. Just on the Sharpton show

Cantor re-branded the GOP using Obama's speech in Kansas about a year ago or so.
damn near the same speech.

2. Word for word.

And point by point it's identical to the Obama speech. Rev. Al played clips from both speeches.

Laughing my freakin' ass off !!

5. At least Cantor can spot a good speech to steal

Big difference is that Obama meant it.

7. Cantor does not provide good optics.

He looks smarmy. A man who can't be trusted. Judging on appearances is not always warranted but his appearance, his mannerisms, etc., just scream, 'No way!'

Which is further evidence that no one is in charge of the GOP.

17. Nice way of saying he's a slime-ball.

Too slick, too calculated but he has the stench
of the sewer.

11. As I heard Cantor reading it on the news, I thought

"That's weird... His voice sounds like he's reading somebody else's speech".

Ta-Dah!

20. Loved this part

Majority Leader Cantor thinks that America will support the same Republican policies that have been rejected for years if he adopts Barack Obama’s uplifting language.

Despite crediting the original author in his other speeches and remarks, Joe Biden was accused of plagiarism in 1988. These allegations forced Biden from the presidential race that year, and haunted him for years to come. If Biden committed plagiarism in 1988, Eric Cantor engaged in flat out theft.

Eric Cantor is the perfect example of the idiom, “If you can’t beat them, steal their language, attach your lousy ideas to it, and hope nobody notices.”

Did anyone else expose Cantor?
