The Republicans? They are all simply in shock. House Speaker John Boehner reportedly cried upon hearing the news of Cantor's defeat in the primary. (Just one more example of why Boehner needs to be shown the door and replaced).Personally? I am long since tired of Boehner's tear jerking. The jack ass cry baby need to go.
As for the republicans in Washington and their observations? The republican leadership can't seem to get through their heads that America is tired of their quibbling and equivocating on important issues. Americans are tired of the democrats and they are tired of liberalism and they are tired of RINO's sucking up to liberals and talking compromise, instead of putting forth and supporting true conservative principles.
Conservative Americans are tired of seeing their country destroyed by Obama and Pelosi and Reid and Holder and they want something done about it. Obviously the GOP and their leaders weren't listening in Virginia, as the unknown college professor Brat, came from nowhere with nothing for a budget and not only beat the incumbent but he also embarrassed the GOP's house majority leader by soundly defeating him.
So far? I have seen no one in the GOP stepping off to embrace or accept Brat or his stated core republican principles. Not one GOP leader has called to congratulate him. Brat's polices of simple conservatism are apparently far too radical and far too offensive for the likes of Boehner and the rest of the GOP to proffer any support. To John Boehner and the rest of the RINO leadership of the GOP in Washington I say this. Hold that thought. Keep doing what you are doing. Keep turning your back on America and the conservative base who have been telling you for the last ten years what they want. Keep it up mr. speaker and hopefully by the end of the midterms, your sorry ass will be replaced in a landslide call for your removal by republican voters.
House Majority Leader Cantor defeated in primary
In an upset for the ages, Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia, the second-most powerful man in the House, was dethroned Tuesday by a little-known, tea party-backed Republican primary challenger carried to victory on a wave of public anger over calls for looser immigration laws."This is a miracle from God that just happened," exulted David Brat, an economics professor, as his victory became clear in the congressional district around Virginia's capital city.Speaking to downcast supporters, Cantor conceded, "Obviously we came up short" in a bid for renomination to an eighth term.
