Cantor Stomps Obama’s Last Nerve

By Yul

It was a sweet moment when John Boehner put his arm around House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and reassured everyone he doesn’t think Cantor’s an asshole. But “Boner” is in a dwindling minority.

Cantor is MY Congressman, and if cats could vote, he wouldn’t be elected dog-catcher. His insatiable need to top his own douchebaggery knows no limits.

Cantor looks like the creepy kid everybody either ignored or bullied in school. He probably entered politics just for spite, and fell into a tub of butter when the Republicans regained Congress in the mid-terms and made him House Nerd Majority Leader, with endless opportunities to diss the president.

Who can forget the time Cantor met with Obama on healthcare and showed up lugging the 2,000+-page bill as a prop to piss Obama off?

Or during the initial debt ceiling meetings with Biden, when Cantor flounced out with his tail in a fluff?

Cantor misses no Obama-baiting opportunity to show his solidarity with Virginia’s 7th District closet bigots who have kept Cantor in Congress since 2001.

Just this week, when Obama headed the latest debt ceiling meetings, Cantor allegedly interrupted Obama 3 times, repeatedly suggesting a short-term fix. Obama finally smacked Cantor down, warning, “Don’t call my bluff.” Cantor later claimed Obama “stormed” out of the meeting in a hissy fit.

No, Eric. That’s what they have you for.

These talks themselves are ridiculous. A bunch of suits throwing around trillions as if they really know how much money that is. Making grand 10-year projections they won’t be around to carry out.

And it came as no surprise to learn that Cantor is betting AGAINST the government that furnishes his livelihood and healthcare. He invests in ProShares Trust Ultrashort 20+ Year Treasury EFT, which is projected to skyrocket if the U.S. financial situation tanks.

It’s maddening that gullible voters can be snowed by Republicans who scream, “No tax increases…!” without listening to the whole sentence, which is, “No tax increases for the WEALTHY and BIG CORPORATIONS!”

Meanwhile, Obama, the Great Compromiser, is prepared to throw 60-somethings under the bus AGAIN to appease those greedy SOBs. He’s offered to raise eligibility for Medicare to 67. Why not? Obama tossed near-retirees like bloody chum to insurance industry sharks, lettng them be ripped to shreds on premiums until 2014, before any meaningful healthcare reform kicks in.

The further into poverty with no safety net Cantor and other avaricious Republicans can shove the poor and middle class in any way, while claiming to be saviors, the bolder they become.

When are voters going to wake up and stop the madness?

    As Eric Cantor is (regrettably) my Congressman as well, I write to him and call him out on EVERY stupid thing he does (I barely have time left to clean the house) and I check the box saying I want a reply. At least this requires some assistant to spend a little time on me instead of time helping “Mr.” Cantor destroy the country. I would urge ALL catworking readers to do the same. A Congressman of Cantor’s “stature”** should hear from more than just Americans in his district. I would like his inbox and letterbox to be clogged with the moral outrage of a sickened Nation (and I mean that literally as well as figuratively).

    **Has anyone ever noticed how Mr. Cantor lurks in the background of every Republican photo op?

    I think I’m going to start calling him Eric Canker, since he’s a sore on the butt of Virginia that refuses to heal. There’s a lot not to like about Harry Reid, but he nailed it when he said Cantor’s behavior has been “childish.”

    Poking his smug mug into every photo op is just a taste of things to come. By 2016, he’ll probably think he’s ready for prime-time and run for president. But if he keeps going the way he’s been going, he won’t have a prayer of winning because he and his party will have starved, made homeless, or outright killed most of their constituency. Much as they’d love to stamp out all the little people, they need those massive herds who will believe anything and vote brainlessly to keep them in power.

    A couple of days ago, someone said on Twitter that we’ve never seen Eric “Chancre” and Ann Coulter together in a picture. I felt compelled to point out that Ann was the more masculine of the two — what a ferret!

    Since when did the “nd” end up on my name? I’m sure I did it,but I don’t know how I did it.

  5. catsworking says:

    The Adelend comment came through as a new reader and needed approval to post, so that’s why the delay. I agree with you that Ann Coulter is a bigger man than Cantor will ever be.

    The Republicans can’t vote to raise taxes on the rich because they will then be biting the hand that feeds them. I can’t tell you how many rich people I know who got that way by avoiding paying their taxes
    through loopholes and write offs. As for Cantor and his s-eatin’ grin, his actions and demeanor are deplorable. Where have all the great statesmen gone? This guy is completely unacceptable as a
    representative of the people of his State and as a member of the human race.
