Cantor's Hypocrisy Chokes God

(In 2009, Rep. Eric Cantor, R-VA, had very different views about Tea Party anger) Eric Cantor, the 2nd ranking Republican in Congress, voiced concerns about the Occupy Wall Street protests that have now spread to over 50 cities nationwide and bear an uncanny resemblance to the nature of the protests that emerged in the Arab Spring of the Middle East. Here and elsewhere the notion of an American Spring is developing, and like the early stages of what occurred in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya, people didn't quite know what to think.

Clearly, the Republicans don't know what to think. GOP candidate for President Herman Cain remarked of the Occupy Wall St protesters, "Don’t blame Wall Street."

Cain said, "Don’t blame the big banks. If you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself!"

Only most rarely does the Supreme Being comment on American politics, but even the Lord God gasped when Cantor had the hypocrisy, after years of embracing Tea Party lynchings of Obama and Pelosi effigies, vandalism of representative offices, and death threats, to denounce the Occupy Wall St participants as "pitting Americans against Americans."

Closer to reality, Vice President Biden recognized the parallels between the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street movement, "The Tea Party started why? TARP. They thought it was unfair, we're bailing out the big guys. What are the people up on the other side of the spectrum saying? The same thing."

In the same statement where he condemned the new movement, Eric Cantor, as America faces the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, two unfunded wars, crushing unemployment, 50 million Americans without health insurance, crumbling transportation infrastructure, and a collapsing education system, promised that if the Republicans win both houses and the presidency in 2012, they will defund Planned Parenthood.

The Lord heaved, "Well, that will fix everything."

Republican hypocrisy is hardly new, and it is enough to make a person retch. What gets me is when they condemn an idea they have supported for years the instant Obama is for it.

If Obama came out in support of allowing children to breathe, Republicans would adopt a "Suffocate the Kids!" platform.

Shameless.

Planned Parenthood. Glad to see the Republicans have the priorities on the pulse of what matters to America.

The propensity to not blame oneself when things go wrong is wide-spread ... particularly amongst Republicans.
