Eric Cantor says undocumented children should be offered citizenship

2. Well, his speech made him look like a conservative democrat.
as I doubt he wants to change party, it was probably an attempt to make his party look softer (a la Jindal or Scarborough). But he supported so many Tea Party people in the past that it is hard to believe it is more than window dressing.

13. Indeed. remember "veto the dream act" and "self deportation"?
Cantor, mccain, rubio, etc are all in damage control mode after the people rejected the "veto the DREAM Act" candidate.
