    Cantor defeated in primary by Tea Party



    A stunning defeat of the Republican hierarchy sent waves of shock and fear through Congress on both sides of the aisle as the Tea Party is back. Eric Cantor the House Majority Whip was expected to rise to Speaker of the House if re-elected.

    Tea Partiers accused him of renegging on spending, debt and immigration - all conservative ideals. Speaking of spending, he was connected to the financial industry and spent $5M on the campaign while David Brat, a college professor spent around $122,000 to defeat him and it wasn't even close with Brat getting 56% of the vote to 44% for Cantor.

    The immigration bill was co-authored by Rubio and supported by many republicans, some whom are up for re-election.

    This could halt construction of a house immigration bill and could cause replublicans not to cooperate with Obummer.


    He was on 60 MINs couple of years ago and was grilled on Reagan when it was pointed out he raised taxes. He said no he didn't and his PR man yelled out no from off the camera.

    Leslie showed tape of Reagan saying he had to raise taxes. He didn't want to but everyone in his white house pressed him on it. He gave us the biggest tax cuts in history then took a third back by raising taxes 4 times in his first term and about 7 or 8 more times in his 2d term, something Cantor did not know.

    That's why H. Bush said read my lips, no new taxes but he renegged too and it cost him re-election.

    But the point is the Tea Party is back and speaking of spending, you should have seen his $1.5M office 60 Mins showed.

    Big upset for sure, repubs have to be wondering what is going to happen next. Maybe shutting down the government wasn't so smart after all. Cantor was looking to far ahead and not taking care of those that voted him in office. Papers said it was a low turn out of voters, people are pissed at him. Personally I love it, hoping Kipke gets the same treatment in AA county. He looking for that executive job and spends money like it isn't his. A mini. newt gringrich.

    I don't think the dems shutting down the gov't had anythng to do with it. As mentioned in the link it was mostly spending and caving in on immigration and other hot issues.

    Don't forget the 2010 mid terms when they took back congress but then everyone disappeared for OBYs second win. Dick Morris said that's what got him mixed up when he predicted a big win for Mitt. He was going by the numbers of the 08 mid terms and thought those people would show up again.

    OBY won because they didnt, especially 40M Christians.

    The GOP is all over the place.

    Poor leadership and too much inter-group squabbling. That's why Hillary will probably be President come 2016.

    YOU'RE PROBABLY RIGHT - IN CAPS AND IN BOLD-LOL.

    There's not a candidate that can beat her at the moment. Christie? Hell no.
    He's pro abortion so the Christians won't show up again.

    Rubio? Hell no again. He co-authored the immigration bill.

    Cruz? Doubt he has the money or the clout.

    Ryan? Forget it.

    Turn out was up nearly 40% form 2012. Turnout had nothing to do with it. People are pissed though and tired of self-serving politicians.

    Low turnout is always the media spin when a guy is doing business as usual in Dc goes down.

    The poor leadership gets worse in 2016. Al Q will be dropping planes all over the place.

    Did anyone see where Hillary claimed they were broke when they left the Clinton White House due to Chelsea's education and this and that?

    We should all be this broke but think how worse the country's spending gets with her as the leader.

    Not mentioned in the link is the over $1M in profits she made when she invested $1G in the white water land deal when she was with the law firm.



    FROM HUFFINGTON:


    According to Mother Jones, just before she left the White House as first lady, Hillary was given an $8 million advance for her memoir Living History. The couple had also purchased two homes, one in Washington, D.C., and another in Chappaqua, New York, Time reports.

    Speaking engagements and books deals quickly began bringing in money. From from 2000 to 2007, the couple earned more than $109 million, according to an NPR report. A large portion of that income came from Bill's speaking engagements. Since leaving the White House, the former president reportedly has earned $106 million from speaking fees, a 2013 CNN report notes.

    In the last 15 months since Hilary left her post as secretary of state, she has made $5 million from a pricey speaking circuit.

    When asked how the American public might view her hefty price tag for speaking appearances (reportedly $200,000 apiece), Hillary told Sawyer, “I thought making speeches for money was a much better thing than getting connected with any one group or company as so many people who leave public life do.”
