I'd take Biden any day over someone who says things so ridiculous that when satire sites like National Report does an article stating she was on Fox News saying that Mexicans need to get on the boat they came in on and go back home, it sounds 100% believable.

I'm certainly open to being proven wrong on that point. More importantly: I just got my first IntenseDebate email notification of a reply to a comment. New feature? Or does it just come through when QuincyJournal replies to a comment. Because it's great. Makes it easier to follow debates.

C'mon. People in these types of jobs move all of the time and their employers know their people are always going to be looking for the next rung up. Many universities give full disclosure of this process. It absolutely does not affect the quality of candidates. Sadly, it has always been the way business is done in Quincy.

REBEL MEDIA: Don't take anything for granted

7 months, 3 weeks ago by Bob Gough

“Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?” Ronald Wilson Reagan

Cantor's immigration position didn't help, but this stunner is because he was out of touch with the district that had elected him by rote seven previous times, although his percentage of the vote had dropped in each of the last four general elections. 

On primary election day, Cantor was in Washington D.C., not his home district. Retail Politics 101 is you vote in your home district on election day. You do it if you're from North Dakota and you especially do it when your home state is Virginia, in the shadow of the nation's capital. 

Cantor became the darling of K Street and Wall Street and his constituents were secondary. 

There are many congressmen and senators who deserve Cantor's fate. Those who no longer vote the wishes of the constituents, but vote to secure their power base among the Beltway Elite and their benefactors. They are in both parties.

There are many more bums who need to be thrown out. Don't stop now.
