He's just in it for the money.



Aren't they all?
Well, most of them anyway

God I wish we could get rid of Pelosi this fall, along with a few others
Reid's not up for re-election until 2016....he needs to go too

conservative party tea party none of it will matter if we don't get balanced trade. as long as we have a hugely disproportionate trade against us, the industry will stay gone, the technology will stay gone and our quality of life will continue to plummet.

Just heard that Cantor outspent the new guy 25-1 (edit:Maddow just said it was 5-1). Big "L" on the poor guy's forehead. Maddow just said that some people are saying it's the biggest U.S. political upset in their lifetimes.


You shouldn't admit you watch Maddow. It only makes you look foolish.

I don't think anyone was more shocked than Cantor as he made his not quite concession speech. The talking heads are saying Cantor's defeat was based on his stand on amnesty. This is a GOP game changer. Long over due in my book.

About time...Brat, the tea party winner won by a large margin too.

I'm ready for change. One down...a boat load to go...

2016 can't get here soon enough. I'm conserving my pins for my Harry Reid voodoo doll...

I was getting tired of the same old same old from Cantor too. I loved seeing his deer in the headlight look as he conceded. These career politicians all need to be knocked off their soap boxes. He was convinced money would buy his seat again.

That was probably a big part of this, especially with our borders under assault by "the children." I hope this kills off any further discussion of immigration reform from the republicans.



Brat attacked him for supporting "amnesty" as part of his support for comprehensive immigration reform, which forced Cantor to reiterate that he opposed legislation that provided for "blanket amnesty Link

I'm still curing that chicken foot, the owl feathers are also
not going to be optional... no matter how traumatized my
roommate by the visitor. It'll be worth it. Sen. Harry's
overdue for some nasty juju after the Bundy blow farm affair.
And we can remember what we had for dinner yesterday Harry.
It wasn't beef or Robert Mitchum. (How old am I NOW?)

Besdes, Des: Eric could probably just dust off his shingle and
do some real damage INSIDE the SPLC instead of with them.
The guy's too young and ambitious to let this faze him much.

Wow I almost don't believe this, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor just lost the primary to a member of the Tea Party. This is great news as far as I'm concerned.



Cockstrong, this one is. I'd hold on to that bravado fella...a huge portion of those that didn't want a Tee-party candidate have now decided to vote Democrat on election day...enjoy while you can; the pleasure will be very shot lived.

That political movement has sold out, gone into extremism and has lost all credibility with all but a small fraction of America.

Guys, this wasn't luck or some grand democratic scheme to hijack the primary. I know some people that worked against Cantor on the winning team. They have some top notch help and know what they're doing. Not only that but they're one of the good guys (yes even though the candidate is said to be tea party), think someone similar to Justin Amash/Rand Paul.

This is the result of disciplined and innovative campaigning on a budget as well as a mildly predictable low voter turnout. Brat was outspent 25-1 against Cantor.

Get active in tried and true trainings by (hint) organizations like Leadership Institute, who go out there and turn regular angry joe-the-plumbers into campaigning machines. How else are you going to remove tyrannical asses like Eric Cantor? by posting on ATS?

I talk to about 2,000 people every single weekend at the farmer's market. A lot of disillusioned Dems are telling me they are not going to vote with their party this year. They feel like their party is not representing them anymore.

I think you may be in for bit of a shock as the backlash of the Gitmo 5 sinks in. People are not happy campers. Unhappy campers tend to change campgrounds.

Which city do you live in? Are you talking about extreme party loyal democrats or just average joe democrats?

Haha, so you say. Obviously not in Virginia.

Anyway what's wrong with wanting smaller federal government, securing our borders and going by the Constitution? Sounds like a win to me.

Obama got reelected.

I hope Americans join the tea party, but a bad economy means more socialists.

That is the reason the economy is so bad in the first place.

When the Tea Party is really going to win, you will hear people talking about it where ever you go.

I haven't heard anything like that.

But I'm not in Virginia.

I would do better than boo at Cantor. He's one of the few I've actually sent letters to scold him with.
I'm ashamed he's from my state. Total tool, thought he could just meld in with the old-boy crowd and weasel his way through everything.
Seeing the shock on his face is SOO priceless.
Ignore the Constitution and see what happens?
The people want the LAW restored. The LAW OF THE LAND.
Our Constitution.

Second that one, neo, people jump with joy right now, but taking into consideration how our political system and their politic-rats are failing America I don't see any changes anytime soon no matter which politic-crap party is in power.

I still don't see the Demo craps winning the white house but that doesn't mean the Republic rats will be any different.

I thought this was a spoof headline. Seriously.

Holy crap.

Well, I can only wish that this trend will continue...

To see that trend change with the number 2 guy? Absolutely awesome. Hopefully Pelosi and Boehner next.


They forgot to rig the voting machines...

They were lax because they were sure this one was a slam dunk

I'm in a rural mountain area with die hard, my pappy was a democrat so I'm a democrat, people. They don't change their minds easily.

Now after saying that, they are also very patriotic down to earth people. They feel betrayed by Obama, and it's his party, so they are switching sides to vote he and his kin out. The damage done to the Dem party by Obama releasing the 5 hard core America hating terrorists, was like a huge slap in the face to a lot of people up here.

I agree, throw all the bums out! It would send a strong message if all incumbents lost their seats.

LOL

I wouldn't believe that malarkey and I doubt Republicans will either !!

Democrats are knee-shaking right about now and I bet many Democrats will vote Republican in November.

The air is spurting out of the balloons.

The tactics are falling apart.
