Why Did Cantor Protect Obama?
Accuracy in Media, by Cliff Kincaid

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/15/2012 1:24:52 PM

The central figures in the David Petraeus sex scandal are not talking. That includes Virginia Congressman and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Yet, the decision by this top Republican to turn to the FBI rather than his colleagues in the House with inside information about the scandal has proven to be monumental, a development that enabled Barack Obama to win the presidency without getting tainted by the allegations of immorality and corruption that are now the subject of daily news reports. The record shows that Cantor had knowledge of the affair from an FBI whistleblower

Comments:
That´s what I would like to know. I think we are going to be even more upset over the behavior of the Republicans in the next four years. It is terribly upsetting. If this situation was reversed you know the Democrats wouldn´t hesitate to destroy a presidential candidate if it would help them win. They sure did it with Romney and he wasn´t even corrupt!

The Democrat/National Socialists probably have dirt on most members of congress. They may have simply held something over Cantor´s head to keep his mouth shut until after the election. That´s what they did with Petraeus.

Just once wouldn´t it be great for someone to be presented with the blackmail and say.....go for it....I want to be a national hero to save our republic! Geez, short of murdering someone, which couldn´t have got you a security clearance in government, what could they possibly hold over your head to keep you from protecting our great nation??

There must be video or pictures. Boehner made sure Cantor stayed as his #2 man. And also made sure Dr. Price (who just happens to be my superior Representative from GA and a staunch Conservative) didn´t get a top spot but chose a female Moderate from the state of WA. Something really stinks about all this. Is there nobody that pin Cantor down and get a straight answer?

So they all stood on a stage in Ohio a few days before the election..rah rah rah...Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan working hard to get elected and Cantor KNEW info that could have blown the lid off the election? He has more than just explaining to do....he owes the American public and Mitt Romney a public apology. This is sickening.

Thanks, Cantor, thanks a lot.

Yep, Obama has the goods on all of them. That poor FBI whistleblower didn´t know he was going to a compromised source. Love the last line of the piece.

The plans to steal the election were in place for years.

No information was going to change the outcome of the election.

I doubt it would have made a bit of difference to the outcome of the election. Most people still don´t know Benghazi from Ben-Gay.

They DO, however, know that George Bush destroyed the economy and that Republicans want to take away their Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, birth, the voting rights of women and minorities, health care, Big Bird, and install a theocracy run by rich white men. That´s what they know. Sarcasm off, if it´s necessary to say that.

Cantor said he received the information from the shirtless FBI that was yanked from the case, and that FBI superiors did not confirm.

If he had acted on what he knew, he would have destroyed Petraeus unnecessarily, because the election was about handouts, ultimately.

Do you really think the 0bama phone woman knows or cares about Benghazi? NO!

It´s clear now that where Republicans are concerned, no truly "clean" guys make it to the top. Boehner, Cantor, and we can name many many more are all compromised in some way. I think this is why Romney was probably never going to win.

Ask the nice lady why. I also asked why would ANYONE who was aware of illegal activity blow the whistle when CANTOR himself turned the WB over to Mueller?
She was dumbfounded.
I told her that I hope that whatever Cantor traded for his comlicity in this cover up was worth it.

Why would a revelation that Petraeus was having an affair have affected the election? I cannot think of any reasons that people would be less likely to have voted for Obama because the head of the CIA had a zipper problem? Cantor did the correct thing, being angry with him makes no sense.

Sorry to say I can´t think of too many repubs that wouldn´t have caved.

The repubs need to grow a pair.

Perhaps a bunch of us should send them a gift ... One of those metal cajones that you hang underneath your vehicle.

The same way we sent tea bags and that seemed to get their attention.

Petraeus knows details about Benghazi. The dems had/have the goods on him and he probably thought if he kept quiet they would keep quiet about his affairs and protect him. He did not want to resign. Dems probably have more and could probably finish him off he speaks truthfully.

You have to remember that the Republicans in Congress are pretty wimpy, with a lot of them just pleased as punch to stay in the minority and to go along to get along with the liberal Democrats. That´s why the Tea Party was born, to upset that cozy applecart.

Dittos #8 - Obama seemed very confident when he told the Russian guy " When I am re-elected I will have more flexibility". The DemocRAT fraud machine is so well oiled now I don´t think a Republican president will ever be elected again in our lifetimes. Politics is war to the DemocRATs and all´s fair in war. We are living in a sham Republic these days, where most elections are pre-determined or stolen years in advance. They just allow us to think we are voting when they already know the outcome. When the DOJ head runs around the country and tells everyone that voter ID is a racist Republican plot to disenfranchise minority voters, I don´t see any way to win against the national DemocRAT crime family. No one ever seems to be fined or go to jail for voter fraud. Even some of the "UN Observers" said they had never seen such a lack of security in our elections. We need to scrap ALL of the computer voting machines and go back to paper ballots for starters. At least with paper ballots we have a trail.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
