ARMSTRONG WILLIAMS’ ASSESSMENT OF ERIC CANTOR’S LOSS
“House Majority Whip Eric Cantor had always been the compromise candidate, the one who didn’t fit any particular profile or stereotype. He was Southern, spoke with a twang, but he was a practicing Jew. He was principled, conservative, but determined to sell the Republican brand to those who were neither. He could speak the language of the talk radio conservative base, and, as a second language, could speak the language of the bleeding hearts, the hypersympathetic caucus on the other side of the aisle. This last ability, this second language of his, proved his undoing. Cantor’s willingness to support even the most abstract immigration reform principles won him no good will from Democrats, and outright hostility from his own base.”
Williams is a Republican it is interesting to read his analysis. Let him tell it Cantor was never a fit for the party. it is almost as if he describing someone from another party. What is the GOP brand? Share your thoughts.
Rumors of the Tea Party’s death have been greatly exaggerated. Last night they showed they are alive and well and devouring their own. Eric Cantor never thought this morning he would wake up a loser. Last night I was watching the NBA finals and my uncle called me and asked me if I had heard about Cantor. I immediately turned to CNN to be greeted with the news that Cantor had been defeated. All the pundits are stunned and asking how could this happen? Did Cantor take his eye off the ball? Was he a victim of pride? The Bible says “pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall”. Last night Cantor fell.
Yesterday in Las Vegas, NV a husband and a wife killed two cops while the cops ate their lunch. The cowardly couple then ran into Walmart’s and killed another person before killing theirselves. Today the news oulets have been interviewing their neighbors. One of them said that they talked about killing cops and if he had thought they were serious he would have called the authorities. When are we going to start believing people when they verbalize their plans? We don’t want to believe that people we know could do something so horrific, but we have got to start listening to the people in our orbit. Maybe if someone had told the authorities this couple might have been scared straight. We resist telling on our neigbors but we are living in the days of if you see something say something, and now we need to add if you hear something tell somebody… like the police.

Steve Coburn’s California Chrome story was made for television. Coburn and his co-owner had bought the horse for next to nothing and the offspring was a winner. California Chrome was one race shy of winning the coveted Triple Crown, but when he didn’t Coburn who had been an “aw shucks” kind of every man turned into an angry man. His rant became the story of the race and most people will remember the rant more than the race. Today Coburn apologized for his outburst but is this enough.

It is fine to disagree with the administration about the handling of Bowe Bergdahl but taking potshots at his father is seemingly a bridge too far. Yesterday Joe Scarborough crossed that bridge and said what he would have done if his son was in a similar situation. Churck Todd who is no fan of the administration challenged him. It is so easy for the media to sit in their comfy chairs and ponder all the “what ifs”, but it is truly another thing to be the parents of a son that has been missing for 5 years. At this point we don’t know all the facts of Bergdahl’s disappearance, and we also know it is impossible to say what we would do for our own child. Joe needs to take a step back from the plank.
