Cantor on Meet the Press

House minority whip Eric Cantor visited Meet the Press today, and I thought the appearance merited a look. Notice Cantor stumble badly when he criticizes earmarks, and then agrees that he has voted for thousands of them. Look how difficult it was for him to reconcile his current criticism of the Obama budget and stimulus with his unbridled support for deficit spending during the Bush presidency. Of course he explains that his support for deficits was “for the troops”. He must have forgotten Republican support for tax cuts that helped to drive the budget from Clinton surplus to Bush deficit. He was for deficit spending before he was against it.

    Your Honor,

    I know you are trying to misdirect your Democratic minions by crying about this minor interview. Don’t forget, Your Honor, that is why the Republicans lost the election.

    Now how about blogging about the myriad of Obama’s the sky is falling….the sky is falling, er…….we are ok…..we are ok….

    The way I figure it we did need his stimulus package. If everything is beginning to turn around, it’s doing it without the stimulus package which hasn’t hit the streets yet.

    Now back to the subject at hand. A question;

    If Obama has promised to end earmarks in his campaign and after, and he has signed the earmark bill, is he a liar?
