Cantor? He sure is, totally worthless.
And for being totally worthless he gets $174,000 per year.

Multiply that by 285 and we get close to $60 million per year
for the Republicans in the Congress to be totally worthless.

American cannot afford this bunch of parasites and blood suckers,.

As appreciation for his contributions to Iraq, on Bush's last trip outside of America, which was to Iraq the Iraqis threw shoes at George Bush during a press conference.

So much for democracy in Iraq, compliments of George Bush.

That grinning little bastard, Cantor, has nothing to say.....he and his boss, George Tush allowed 9-11 to happen, invaded the wrong country, then lied to us.....and profited off the war effort, thanks to fascists like Cheney.

Thousands died in vain.

President Obama got Bin Laden, and strengthened our diplomacy.

Americans deserve to lose their freedoms. They deserve the tyranny that is expanding even though many deny the existence of laws and federal departments passed that is doing just that. Both sides are involved in this. And now they must follow the direction they themselves sold to the American people so many decades ago. It makes no difference as every way of countering the evil enveloping us is blocked or an individual show of courage, a spine or a the threat of personal destruction that just does that must be accepted by people who want freedoms. We don't have that. We will collect anything from government to survive now and bend to the direction they give us in return. No progressive will give us freedom. No RINO will give us freedom. No NEO CON will give us freedom. The rise of the TEA PARTY scared the heck out of the elitists and long time power mongers of world history for a few months. But as of now I don't se the TEA PARTY doing what is started out as. And that was......more freedom, end the wars, less taxes, bring American owned factories back home and issues in that direction. Come November, even if the Repubs win the election big time, it will still not end the direction of the elitists if the men and women in office or appointed by others are the same as we have now. We have funded are own demise. Every close issue always goes to the left. No matter who is in office and no matter who is appointed. The supreme court justice who made Obamacare law is just another example. No matter how it is sold to the people by the elitists and their puppets who broadcast it to us on any side. People have died because of that idiot and with a corrupted and evil government not of the people, he probably was threatened in some way for personal safety or a personal issue in his life. Meanwhile trillions of dollars passes hands and the middle class becomes poorer. Yeah, one side is innocent and the other guilty. Keep not paying attention the totalitarian laws and you will whine when it is your hide that the chambers of weapons are pointed at.

The problem with freedoms is keeping them. A supreme court justice even warned of internment camps just a few days ago of the laws passed that we don't pay attention to. Freedom is a joke until it is lost to the jaded. The tyranny agenda is running concurrently with the diversity agenda but not a word about human rights abuses by our own system unless it has something to do with agenda politics.

All Obama did was remove the troop, eh?. Clearly, he should have done something else besides hoping all will turn out for the best, unless Obama's intention all along was to eradicate that democracy and create a safe haven for terrorists.

Same thing is happening in Afghanistan. Now that Obama is removing the troops, the Taliban is moving back in.

Iraq refused to agree to terms in the status agreement, just as Afghanstan refused.

neither wants troops in their country any longer

It's not about troops. It's about foreign policy.
There are ways to keep terrorists at bY that don't involve American troops on foreign soil.
Simply hoping for the best is not a policy. It's a pity that Obama never realized this.
