10. He's one of the most mealy-mouth individuals I've ever had the displeasure of hearing.

Christ!...the guy can talk for an hour and say absolutely nothing.

I heard him this morning and he might as well of said "Concrete crocodile in a shoe-box leaving on a slow boat to China"

That's actually more intelligible than his interview.

16. "Why do we do what we do?"

"It is quite simple ... Government control of their body, corporate control of their mind. Do you honestly think there is an easier way to rid them of their wallet? Shhh!! ...here comes a donor...don't blow it. Just use the words Frank Luntz taught you and say the word freedom in every third sentence. That's when you ask for his donation. Got it?"

Everyone smells it. No amount of repackaging will disguise the intentions.

21. Jason Easley writes about Rev Al catching Cantor's plagiarism of PBO's 2011 Speech..

Eric Cantor Rebrands the Republican Party by Plagiarizing a 2011 Obama Speech

There are 3 instances..

This is the First..
Obama called for every American to have a fair shot at success, “Well, it starts by making sure that everyone in America gets a fair shot at success. The truth is we’ll never be able to compete with other countries when it comes to who’s best at letting their businesses pay the lowest wages, who’s best at busting unions, who’s best at letting companies pollute as much as they want.”


It is clear that Eric Cantor plagiarized the president’s thoughts and language, but it goes much deeper than that.

Cantor plagiarized Obama’s speech with the intention of co-opting the president’s language. Eric Cantor wanted to attach the same stale Republican ideas to the language of Obama. A side by side comparison of the two speeches reveals the hollowness of this technique. Obama’s speech in Topeka followed the language with examples and policy proposals. Eric Cantor’s speech was full of attempts to relate to the common man and families, but specific ideas were mostly missing. This omission was intentional. Cantor is only interested in changing the tone of the Republican Party, not the policies.

Much morehttp://www.politicususa.com/eric-cantor-rebrands-republican-party-plagiarizing-2011-obama-speech.html

Cantor doesn't have an original bone in his body. he thinks his subjects are so dumb they'll follow him because he co-opts our popular President.

22. Sorry Eric, but we've figured out

that trickle-down economics means "Piss on You". It took us about thirty years, though, so there is some hope that you can think up a new lie to get a lot of mileage out of.

24. But, Eric, there was never any doubt about that.

In the past few years, it has simply become much more obvious what they really stand for, all the "kinder, gentler, compassionate conservatism" horse shit worn away like last week's lipstick. Even these experts at re-branding and reparative cosmetics cannot cover it up forever. Lying is a fundamental campaign tactic with these guys.

25. "You know. Whatever Obama is for, we're against."

"For instance, puppies. If Obama likes puppies, we hate puppies."
