House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia has really been, symbolically, shooting himself in the foot lately!
Calling for spending cuts, if there was a desire to provide relief to flood and tornado victims in the South and Midwest, made him look totally hardhearted and uncaring!
Calling upon New York Congressman Anthony Weiner to resign because of his sex scandal was hypocritical, since Cantor did not say the same thing about Senator David Vitter of Louisiana, Senator John Ensign of Nevada, Senator Larry Craig of Idaho, or Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina, among others.
His lack of consistency and compassion is a major negative, plus the image created that he is an overly ambitious man who wishes to undermine House Speaker John Boehner due to his own ambitions to take over that position!
Eric Cantor does not exactly come across in a positive way for someone who wishes to become a national leader with consistent views and principles! Instead, he gives the impression of willingness to do or say anything to advance himself!
He not only looks like a goofball but I can’t even stand to hear him speak. He is exptremely hypocritical especially on the issue of Anthony Weiner. Rachel Maddow of MSNBC spent 20 minutes going off on him on a segmet of her show earlier this week!
