    I was not a big fan of him either. I think it was a good choice for him to step down as GOP Leader.

    I personally was never a big fan of his, probably for the best he resigned. We need less politicians like him serving the people of our great nation.

    How did Cantor, an infantile dimwit EVER get enough votes to become a member of Congress is painful to think about. He is as insightful and selfless as a two-year old. His rudeness and snikering during televised speeches of the President were pathetic to witness. What a classless fool!!
