It's not "EXREMISM" to them, though. They think they are big, brave "Patriots"

5. Seems like he said the least possible
Hoyer asked that a joint statement be made by the leadership of both Parties. So Cantor, the little fart, comes out and does as little as possible.

19. Not very, imo. I'm sure there will be a video soon so you can see exactly what he said
It wasn't a written statement - he did go before the cameras. Hope this helps.

18. I don't know, this seems to be Cantor's shtick lately.
He called out those protesters waving anti-semitic signs at the Capitol a few months back.

17. "Uncivil"? How about criminal trespass and vandalism? Uncivil behavior is shouting "baby killer!"
on the floor of the House. Breaking windows, cutting gas lines, and making threats against lawmakers and their families is CRIMINAL behavior, dickwad.

21. He's right
No one should yell "You lie!" at the President during the SOTU address.

No one should say "go fuck yourself" to a United States Senator on the floor of the Senate.

No member of the House or Representatives should yell, "Baby Killer!" at another member in public.

So what's it gonna be Eric? Do you speak out to condemn the crude members of your party who engage
in this kind of behavior, or have you submitted your intention to switch to the Democrats to Speaker
Pelosi yet?

Let me guess. Here's what you'll be telling your uncivil Republican colleagues: "I disagree with how
you say it, but I love what you said!"

By George, I believe I've got it.

25. He is pretty slimy.
When he can't control the message he gets irate. I got into it with him over Iran in 2008. He wanted to keep talking but when I tried to counter what he would say, he'd just say, "Can I finish? Can I finish?" I'm one of his constituents I might add.

28. Sorry. A severed propane line isn't "uncivil behavior". It's attempted murder.

30. Will teabaggers understand such big words?
A simple, "STOP" should suffice, if Cantor is serious about wanting them to stop.

31. You know, the GOP broke my irony detector so long ago by overloading it
that when it heard this one, the needle just waggled feebly.

Before, it used to just spin around the dial like a ceiling fan.

34. Isn't civility in the eye of the beholder.
What I might consider uncivil behavior, might not be considered such by Republican nut jobs.. For instance to me it is not very civil to bring a gun to a political meeting..It is not civil to yell "You LIE" to the President of the USA when he is addressing Congress and the country..It is not civil behavior to block any and all legislation just because....To me in a civilized society we all must work together for the betterment of our country and to do less takes away from that civility..
