Cantor takes nothing for granted against conservative challenger

(CNN) - The No. 2 Republican in the House and potential speaker has been hitting back at a primary challenger who accuses him of abandoning GOP principles.

David Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College outside Richmond, isn't likely to come close to ousting Eric Cantor in Tuesday's vote in Virginia's 7th Congressional District.

    Big whoop. If he loses, he's got many avenues of income to buffer the effects of losing a job. And this is the real crime.

    The Elephant in the Room

    Conservatives were against the 1776 revolution, against freeing the slaves, against women having the right to vote, against the civil rights act, against the voting rights act, against marriage equality, against gun control [even background checks]. All of these are changes that have or WILL occur in America.
    Who in their proper, patriotic, American-principled mind, would embrace being a "CONSERVATIVE"? American
    Only those who are greedy and selfish enough to personify and embrace the worst sins of man.

    "I want to know how and to what extent Cantor was involved in the corruption involving the state GOP/Teatrolls and that Dem state senator Puckett. Now. I want to watch him squirm and lie his smug, smirky little face off as he denies any involvement. But of course, CNN and the MSM will only ask him softball questions out of fear of a boycott from AFP, Crossroads and other money conduits for our country's oligarchs to buy themselves the reporting they desire."

    I have no idea what you're talking about but .... ... ....
    Obviously you have no shame concerning what you frequently sound like. You still sound like someone just a few years out of college, just like most supporters of Paul. You would have been much better off keeping your mouth shut until you found out what Sniffit was talking about. What am I talking about? Sniffit is firing cannonballs, while you're returning fire with snowballs.
