Cantor Chuckles, Grins at “Domestic Enemy” Question

My feelings about this exchange are well summarized by these comments at The Plum Line.

P.S. I’ll just add that if Eric Cantor had been a sane and reasonable Republican, he would have scowled angrily at this heinous remark, at the minimum remained stony faced, then forcefully denounced it. Instead, we got Cantor smiling at a deranged question, briefly stating that “noone thinks that the President is a domestic enemy” (is that the denunciation part right there?), then going on to slam Obama for, essentially, being a “domestic enemy.”  Disgusting, as always. In Eric Cantor’s slimy, slippery, oily way of course.

UPDATE: Jake Tapper tweets, “so @EricCantor responds “no one thinks the President is a domestic enemy” and the @Heritage audience boos him! lunacy.”
