Virginia’s Congressman Eric Cantor has come a long way, and most believe he has a long way yet to go. As Minority Whip for House Republicans, Cantor has proven time and again he has what it takes to demand responsible government, and the ability to get the Republican votes in line when it comes time to just say no the the reckless spending and social programs that the Democrats are thrusting on an unwilling public. It stands to reason that this same talent will become useful in correcting the horrendous mistakes of the Obama Administration and the Democrats.
This has not come without a personal price for Cantor. The left has elevated him to most hated status, and the attacks seem to be never ending. But this is merely a badge of honor to those that support Virginia’s rising star. Most would not want it any other way.
While some have taken issue with Cantor in the past, to those that pay attention, the Congressman is the wall that stands between a path to ruin the Democrats have us on, and the path to restore America to prosperity.
Cantor is logical and methodical in addition to being one of the brightest leaders in the country. It is this logic that utterly confounds the liberals and elevates him to chief thorn in their side. Cantor is the master at the calm reasoning that drives the liberals mad.
It will take a special person to bring this country back from the abyss that Obama has led us into. What a refreshing change Eric Cantor would be from the illogical and out of touch Nancy Pelosi.
Eric Cantor is the right man at the right time to lead America.
Here is a pretty good piece on Congressman Cantor from NBC 29 in Charlottesville. Please do not miss the link to the video at the bottom of this post.
From NBC 29 in Charlottesville, Va:
Eric Cantor’s political savvy and ambition have political analysts speculating about his next position in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Virginia has long been a launching pad for politicians with national ambitions. After all, the state has produced more U.S. presidents than any other, and it could be on track to produce the next speaker of the House.
Throughout the marble hallways of Virginia’s State Capitol are photos of each new group of legislators. If you look closely at the class of 1992, you will find the eager young face of a new delegate: Eric Cantor.
“When I was a delegate and had the privilege of representing the 73rd district in the House of Delegates, you know, I learned a great deal,” said the Republican representative.
Now, nearly 20 years later, Cantor is among the most powerful people in Washington. But he says he still takes lessons from the Virginia General Assembly.
“Washington really, really could use a dose of wisdom from the way that body works,” Cantor said.
Cantor is the GOP whip, the second-most powerful Republican in the House behind Minority Leader John Boehner. The 7th District congressman took his leadership role in 2008, and since then has been one of his party’s most visible figures, particularly in criticizing President Obama and his policies.
“We have to be able to stand up for our principles and the people that elect us,” said Cantor.
As talk increases that Republicans could take back control of the House in November, there is also chatter about Cantor’s ambition and whether he could become the first Jewish speaker of the House.
“There’s no doubt he’s got a lot of ambition,” said NBC News Political Director Chuck Todd. “The question is, how quickly can he get to the speakership.”
