The GOP elites in Washington had better learn a lesson from the surprise defeat of one of their own last night. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R, VA) was defeated in the primary last night sending a loud message to his other fellow RINOs. Voters are sick and tired of the same-old-same-old. Voters are fed-up with candidates who say what voters want to hear and then do just the opposite after being elected. Good riddance to this RINO!
Eric Cantor lost in part to his flip flop stance on IMMIGRATION. He would tell voters that he was against AMNESTY for ILLEGALS and then he would work with Democrats to "provide a path to citizenship for ILLEGALS." That's another way of saying "Amnesty."
Another RINO who actually one re-election was Linsey Graham of South Carolina. He saw the threat from the Tea Party and softened his message and tried to form a coalition with them. Cantor on the other hand, tried to destroy the Tea Party and directed heavy attacks against them.
Three Things to Note
The national affiliates of the Tea Party did NOT help overthrow Cantor. They need to learn their lesson from that. Next time, they need to support candidates running against GOP elites (RINOs) in order to give them a fighting chance. They need to "Smarten-up."
The second thing to note is that the remaining RINOs (like Graham) had better start listening to the Tea Party wing or they too will be ousted. Voters will no longer tolerate the GUTLESS Congress and they WILL take action against them in November. We'll see if Graham really changed or lied to get re-elected.
Finally, the Democrats are giving their political spin to all of this as a victory for the Democratic Party. Not so. They will find-out in less than 6 months that they TOO will be unemployed and out of work in the Obama economy!
DUMP ALL CHUMPS IN NOVEMBER! Power to the Tea Party!
