Eric Cantor: Barack Obama Is An Ideological Economic Illiterate !

Well, Cantor doesn't actually use either "I" word, but if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and sh*ts like a duck...

Brian Bulduc over at The Corner relates Cantor's "Tales of Obama":

Rep. Eric Cantor (R., Va.) tells National Review Online that President Obama’s negotiating style leaves much to be desired.

“He’s overly sensitive to someone differing with him on policy grounds,” Cantor says.

And he’s isn’t persuasive. “There’s never any sort of economic argument that he can make for his position. It always reverts to that social-justice end,” Cantor argues.

Not that Obama uses the phrase “social justice.” “It’s ‘fairness.’”

What’s more, Obama’s prickliness is “directly opposite” Cantor’s experience with Vice President Joe Biden: “I had almost seven weeks with the vice president, and those talks were substantive. He and I spoke weekly. Our staffs met daily. The agenda was set...

By contrast, Cantor believes the president’s ideological mindset is impenetrable: “This guy just doesn’t get it.”

The nation faces an existential crisis, and we are led by a closed-minded ideologue, supported by a brain-dead media and a morally bankrupt academic class, kept afloat by the guilt of the extremely wealthy and the spoils of street-level union thuggery.

This is the kind of sh*t that keeps me up at night...
