Armstrong Williams’ take on Eric Cantor’s loss

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.
