House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) desperately wants John Boehner’s job as Speaker of the House. He is pure ambition, with no concern for truth, fairness, or decency. To further his ambition, he’s all too happy to coddle the many crazy members of his caucus, like Michele Bachmann.
Boehner criticized Bachmann’s absurd accusations that Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin is secretly working for the Muslim Brotherhood, calling those accusations “pretty dangerous” and saying that Abedin “has a sterling character.”
But Cantor? Asked by Charlie Rose what he thought about the Bachmann/Abedin shamefulness, Cantor took the coward’s way out, choosing popularity over patriotism, saying, “I think that her concern was about the security of the country.”
Cantor is unfit ever to be Speaker of the House, he shouldn’t be Majority Leader, and he shouldn’t even be a congressman.
