    Could Cantor be a bigger ass? At the same time that he and the GOP were calling for offsets to disaster relief, Cantor was calling FEMA and lobbying them for disaster relief for earthquake victims in his Virginia district. I guess the old saying, 'all politics is local', even applies to sniveling Virginia tight-ass, Eric Cantor.

    delays probably have more to do with the virginia department of emergency management than anything else. Staffing cuts to state emergency management departments have crippled any progress for aid. However, it sure is ironic as fuck to see this bastard talk out of the other side of his mouth when it's HIS back yard in shambles.

    Until the rules change for everyone it would be polticially stupid for him to refuse money that would help his constituency.

    I agree - delays happen, and they certainly aren't the fault of Cantor's. But, like you said, it sure is ironic. The fact of the matter is that this would not be news (not that the so-called "liberal mainstream media" is paying attention) if Cantor hadn't opened his cake-hole about offsetting disaster relief. He looks like an ass.

    I see nothing requiring defending. I see that the left still don't understand the whole concept though.

    Is Dilloduck not a righty?

    I don't want to assume. Perhaps Dilloduck is simply being intellectually honest about the matter.
