House GOP And President Obama Meet As Eric Cantor Cries

I read Jake Tapper's article on the meeting between the President and the House Republicans with bated breath. Republicans described the meeting as being "frosty, good group therapy, nice conversation, frank and productive and even non-confrontational." Wow, who could have guessed that?

This is my favorite part, and it features Eric "The Tornado" Cantor:

Cantor also criticized Democrats’ “Medi-scare” attacks, saying that the charges that the GOP is taking medicine from grandma to pad the pockets of the rich isn’t helpful.

Oh, but they are doing exactly that, but that's beside the point. The President replied:

The president added that he is all for a reduction of demagoguery, an issue he understands since he is the ‘job killing, death panel, probably-wasn't-born-here president.’

Eric Cantor, who heartlessly has been refusing to help the tornado victims in Joplin, MO, unless they are first paid for with politically-motivated spending cuts, is openly complaining to the president about how mean they've been treated.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said Monday that if Congress passes an emergency spending bill to help Missouri’s tornado victims, the extra money will have to be cut from somewhere else.If there is support for a supplemental, it would be accompanied by support for having pay-fors to that supplemental,” Mr. Cantor, Virginia Republican, told reporters at the Capitol. The term “pay-fors” is used by lawmakers to signal cuts or tax increases used to pay for new spending

He doubled down on those comments about tornado victims on Face The Nation and he's crying to the Commander in Chief. You can't make this up.
Republicans get elected by fearmongering anything and everything -- from "death panels" to incipient Marxism -- so it just makes me smile when I see a wimpy Eric Cantor openly complain to the president about how mean they've been treated while residents of Joplin and other regions hit by these marauding tornadoes are the ones who are really suffering.
