Eric Cantor Hates America

Just who does Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Tel Aviv) represent? When the Netanyahu government announced they were building more settlements during a visit by VP Joe Biden, Cantor blasted the Obama administration as 'irresponsible' on Israel. Cantor, who receives a career total of $200,730 from Pro-Israel PACs, also told President Obama to veto any UN resolution condemning Israel for it's assault on an unarmed flotilla where one American citizen was shot in the head four times.
Well, one would hope that given how much support Cantor has given Israel when it's been in the wrong, that at least he would demonstrate the same compassion for the American citizens whom he allegedly represents. Right?
In fact, Cantor, who opposed President Obama's economic stimulus package, has actually been betting against US Treasury Bonds.
Now I'm not a believer in Karma or anything, but it is good to know that while Cantor has been betting against his country and the people who allegedly represents, his bet is down 31%. Still, I think that it would be beneficial to our country to have it's leaders working to improve things, not hoping to get rich from the suffering of it's people. Maybe the people of Virginia will wake up and vote out a representative who doesn't want to make America a better country for all it's citizens, but I'm not going to bet on it.

It would be nice if Virginia's voters got rid of Cantor, but I don't see that happening. Voting against one's self-interest is America's biggest pastime. Every election, millions more dunces get brainwashed into doing this.

Yes, I know the type; "Sure, Cantor maybe a total douche, but he's a Republican, so he won't raise my taxes, so...."
