House GOP Leader Eric Cantor decried the protests that started several weeks ago in New York, and have spread to major cities across the country. Cantor said in a speech at the Values Voters Summit in Washington that he is "increasingly concerned" about the "growing mobs" represented at the protests.

While I STILL have no idea what the "Occupy Wallstreet" folks want, I cannot see how they are any different than any of the Tea Party events that Cantor and his fellow Republicans loved. Do they even care how hypocritical they sound anymore?

I'm concerned that Cantor isn't doing his job. He'd rather see us go through another year of stagnation than lift a finger to help America for fear that it would also help Obama.

Kinda, they are biting the masters hand because the masters hands are on the chains holding the people back.

True..

Although there is a growing concern here in NY by the anti semetic sentiment...not a "muffled" word on a recording that may be the "N" word as was heard at a tea party ralley.

Furthermore, I dont think the tea party ralleys over the 2 years had a total of over 800 arrests....meaning that these ralleys are in less control of themselves.

But they have a right to be heard...and I support their efforts.

But I am curious....Pelosi knocked the tea party ralleys when they started....yet applauds the wall street protests.

DO you not agree that that, too, is hypocrisy?

That's because you are as dumb as dirt. But we can't help that now can we?

Of course...you are talking Nancy Pelosi. Isn't she the one who muttered those most famous words "We must pass this bill in order to find out what is in it"? Paraphrasing, of course...

Cantor didn't even attend the teaparty events, he made Bachmann and Palin get out there in the trenches. He's a coward and an asshole.

I'm concerned about the mob running the House.

I have a feeling the Wall Street events will become the death knell for the teaparty. That and Obama's daily reminders regarding the do nothing House.

How many Tea Partiers were arrested at their events?

A cursory Google search turns up nothing definitive, sorry.

well, that being said.....

Cantor is another hypocrite in washington and one day the people will stop defending their party of choice and start working together to ensure that our employees, (our government) do what is in the best interest of the country...

But, alas, here we are...day in and day out...rationalizing the actions of our party of choice while blasting the same actions of the opposing party.

If you're paraphrasing, then NO SHE DIDN'T. You're asking us to make a judgement on what was said, which requires an EXACT quote, NOT your interpretation, which is what a paraphrase essentially is.

OK. My bad. Here is her quote

But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.

Feel better?

TM...when you know what you are talking about, I will gladly respond to you.

In the meantime, I am here in NYC......our local news have been accurately reporting on the protests and they do not have an agenda like your national "news" does.

The "white shirts" as you inaccurately referred to them as did not do anything out of normal procedure.

The macing was warranted.
