Eric Ivan Cantor.
Tom Clancy fans will recall in his novel “The Hunt for Red October” where Russian subs made a maneuver that caused a rapid turn. It was dubbed the “Crazy Ivan” maneuver.
But SyFy fans will remember the “Crazy Ivan” maneuver that was done in the pilot episode of Firefly. That’s the move that Eric “Crazy Ivan” Cantor has perfected.
Here is the clip from Firefly:
Now what happens in this maneuver is that the Firefly class ship is moving along at a normal pace. They shut down one engine, rotate it 180 degrees so that they have the engine on one side at full throttle thrusting forward and the un-powered engine facing so that it will thrust in reverse. They put full power on the reverse engine and immediately spin 180 degrees and are traveling in the reverse direction. Then they engage the star drive in the atmosphere, something that should never be done (as all Science Fiction fans know). This spews plasma and in the atmosphere of a planet causes a nasty explosion wiping out everything in it’s wake.
And if you are still with me after our intergalactic romp, you should understand a bit more about how Eric “Crazy Ivan” Cantor works.
When he talks to his supporters which I refer to as Cantor Zombies because they support the 7th District Congressman blindly and without intelligent thought, writing checks and easily fooled at his many parties by his speeches promising to balance the budget, pay down the debt, get rid of Obamacare, end illegal immigration, protect the military and a whatever else his zombie apocalypse comatose supporters need to hear to keep writing the checks.
And then he goes back to Washington D.C. and pulls a Crazy Ivan 180 and actually supports, funds, and pushes everything he promised he wouldn’t do.
And the low information zombies he counts on to vote for him will ignore his betrayal, come back to his scripted “advisory Council” meetings to listen to Cantor advise the zombie herd on how he is going to pull a can of whup ass on Obama and get rid of Obamacare, secure the borders, balance the budget, pay down the debt and lower taxes. (Note – most advisory councils actually advise the representative. That’s kinda the point. But at Cantor’s meetings, it is the reverse.)
And then Cantor goes back to DC again and pulls another “Crazy Ivan”.
Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
And the low information blue hairs don’t think about politics until the Cantor birthday bash, the Roundup, Christmas Party (where Cantor’s menu usually includes lots of pork, literally and figuratively). And of course the “Advisory” meetings. All of these meetings and parties include free beer, wine, heavy hors d’oeuvre and great desserts as well as a cameo appearance by Crazy Ivan.
The latest of the many Crazy Ivan maneuvers is currently amnesty. While Virginians struggle to find jobs, put food on the table and a roof over their head, Eric Cantor is now supporting amnesty. So Virginia is about to be flooded by a massive influx of newly forgiven illegal aliens turned Virginians by Cantor. And the vast majority are not only undocumented aliens, they are undocumented Democrats, soon to swell the voter rolls of the Commonwealth with more blue voters.
Listen to Conservative Guru Mark Levin on what Cantor and Boehner plan to do to us:
And any veteran that casts a vote for Eric “Crazy Ivan” Cantor after he voted to cut the pensions of disabled veterans and even took money away from the surviving widows and children of those killed in the line of duty for their country needs to have their head examined.
And the same bill that cut military vets benefits also funds Obamacare. How are you going to end Obamacare, Eric, if you keep funding it?
And now that we will face job competition Cantor’s newly rewarded illegal aliens, Cantor proposes to end overtime pay for hourly workers:
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) proposed abolishing overtime pay for hourly employees, a federally-protected law established to provide fair compensation for work that goes beyond the standard 40-hour work week. The announcement was made during a speech earlier this month at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C.
Cantor’s announcement calls for an end to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA) signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The law mandates that hourly workers get paid “time and a half” for overtime work.
I’m not sure what else we can do wake up the blue haired zombies that think Eric Cantor is on their side. They continue to ignore the truth about their golden boy just like the Obama zombies do for their golden boy. The Cantor Coma crowd fails to see the parallel between their devotion and the Obamaites.
Cantor is sinking like a stone.
Every year more and more people wise up and do not vote for Eric “Crazy Ivan” Cantor.
As you can see from the chart below, Cantor is right to be concerned. He is still winning, but this is a year when the anti-incumbent fever is high and the out of touch career politicians like Cantor are ripe for defeat. As Cantor runs to the left, the voters of the 7th District are moving right.
Will Cantor be term limited in the primary in June? One can only hope.
