Eric Cantor Says Republicans Could Take Back The House In November – Four Reasons Why They Won’t

by Ben Hoffman

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) hopped on the GOP-could-take-control-of-the-House bandwagon on Monday — a prediction offered by none other than White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs over the weekend.

“I think we’re going to retake the House, as Mr. Gibbs suggested yesterday,” Cantor said on CNBC’s Squawk Box. “That’s going to change the dynamic for sure.”

“When we regain the House — because I do think that we’ll retake the majority — the president will have to deal with us,” Cantor said, speaking more optimistically about the GOP’s political fortunes than his colleagues have in the past.

Here are four reasons why they won’t take back the house:

  1. Republicans are pathological liars. Therefore, if Cantor says they’re going to take back the House, he doesn’t actually believe that will happen.
  2. Republicans are dumb-f*cks. We’ve all seen what happens when you have dumb-f*cks running the country. People need time to forget the damage done by the Republicans during the Bush administration.
  3. Republicans have no ideas. Most people are aware that taxes have never been lower, and lowering taxes are Republicans’ answer to every question.
  4. Democrats are trying to fix the problems created by the Republicans and all the Republicans are doing is obstructing them. That doesn’t help our country.

  1. People with money do not invest there money unless they are going to at the least get a return of the money spent. If there is no way to do that without tax cuts they are not going to spend anything. And therefore no jobs etc. When that happens the government has two choices one give the tax breaks or two try to gain all the money and distribute it the best they can. I would rather see the tax cuts. My vote will be republican eventhough I am progressive.

  2. Mr. Hoffman,

    You accused me of only using emotion and not logic in my arguments. Your four points are all emotion and nothing else. I won’t accuse you of talking like a woman with PMS. You are more like an upset child. You got everything you want, the Presidency and Congress, and you are unhappy. You guys run the country and everything is falling apart, yet nothing is your fault.

  3. Thanks for the comic relief on this beautiful Tuesday morning. Humor void of fact is not surprising here.

  4. They won’t retake the house because they are eating thier own. Tea party candidates winning primaries does not translate into winning the general. About 5% of voters show up at primaries and of htem, only the most motivated.

    Charlie Crist is running as an independent cuz the right wing took over the GOP in FL. Charlie will be our next Senator.

    Bill McCollum, a conservative republican, current atty general and candidate for the GOP nomination for Gov – he will be trunced in the primary by a crook with a lot of money who is applealing to the right wing. I don’t agree with McCollum on much, but he is an honorable public servant. The crook however will win. Which is very good for whoever the Dem candidate will be.

    • Scott McInnis (the Republican) is in big trouble in the Colorado governor’s race. He was caught plagiarizing and was paid 100s of thousands of dollars for what was supposed to be original work, so it’s also fraud. Hickenlooper is a bright guy and that should seal the election for him.

      It’s only the “independent” voters whose opinions change with the prevailing winds who might change the makeup of Congress.

      • You’re right Ben – it is the independants. Using FL as an example, there is no doubt in my mind that the same independants who elected Charlie Gov, will elect him Sen. In spite of the attacks, he remains very very popular here and he is about as centrist as they come.

      • And I mean in the general election.

  5. Mr. Hoffman,

    Is the present Colorado Governor GOP or Democrat ? I have not seen a number of how many Governships are up for grabs. In Pa. we are likely to switch to Republican from Democrat, if Corbett doesn’t self destruct.

  6. Mr. Hoffman,

    So if a Democrat wins in Colorado, nothing changes?

    We’ve had 8 years of Fast Eddie Spendel Rendel. The only thing that kept Pennsylvania from joining the ranks of dead beat States like New Jersey, New York and Caleefornia was a Republican State Senate. And that just barely.

    Gov. Ed was a master politician and a master excuser . Along with Ed, a lot of State Democrats are voluntarily retiring. Some who recently achieved a lot of power. There is great speculation, considering recent scandals involving both parties in the State Legislature, as to why . Some think the rats know something bad is coming and are jumping ship .

    The rats in Washington don’t seem to be as smart .

  7. Well, at least you had well reasoned, mature, and logical reasons…. <>
