Here’s what I don’t get.
House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said Sunday that Democrats “just didn’t get the message from the voters this election” if they make Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) their next majority leader.
“I mean, the voters outright rejected the agenda that she’s been about. And here they’re going to put her back in charge,” Cantor, in line to become the House majority leader in the next Congress, said on “Fox News Sunday.”
“I mean this is the woman who really, I think, puts ideology first, and there have been no results for the American people,” he said. “And that seems the direction they want to take again. It just doesn’t make sense.”
How can Eric Cantor say that Democrats didn’t get the message when the Republicans didn’t change their leadership after the 2008 elections? And that was the second straight election that they lost in a big way. On top of that, I can’t think of anything they plan on doing differently this time around from what they did last time.
