In his new article, “Cantor has to go!”, I think it’s fair to say that F.T. Rea sums up succinctly and accurately – perfectly, in other words – how most of us feel about Eric Can’tor. Here’s an excerpt with the classic goat quote I’ve referenced in the headline (bolding added by me for emphasis). Enjoy!
Now everything [Eric Cantor] says bugs me. When he speaks on behalf of the Ryan Budget, which would radically alter Medicare, if passed as is, it makes my skin crawl. When he instructs the president that there can be absolutely no discussion of tax increases to reduce the deficit, it’s enough to make a goat puke.
Moreover, that he represents part of Richmond — my home town! — well, it is too much to bear. Cantor simply has to go.
The Democratic Party simply must pour whatever resources it can muster into an all-out effort to locate a strong candidate to run against Cantor in 2012. If Virginia’s Democrats cynically allow Cantor’s district to be safe for him, again, it will make the party look pathetically weak. Move somebody into the district, if necessary, but get it done.
Cantor has to go!
Or another goat will puke, and we don’t want that now do we? 🙂
