Boehner on Cantor defeat: It's Obama's fault

When House Speaker John Boehner was asked on Thursday morning about Majority Leader Eric Cantor's primary defeat, he should have stopped his answer at this:

I'll let the political pundits describe and figure out what happened in that election. Every election is different.

Instead, he decided to elaborate:


You have to understand, the American people are being squeezed by Obama's policies. The economy is not growing. Incomes aren't growing. We're not creating enough jobs. And two-thirds of America have seen no increase in their wages but their food prices are going up, their gas prices are going up, and their health insurance prices are going up. And so there's a lot of frustration that's out there, and they look to Washington, and wonder why we can't resolve these issues. And they're hard to resolve when you've got a president who won't engage.


So yeah, Eric Cantor lost his primary because President Obama sucks.

So what the blame game is only reserved for Obama so he can blame Bush for all of his dismal failures?

Boehner is like a zombie controlled by the Tea Party.

Everything is because president Obama did it.That is Boehners talking point.Over and over again..."where are the jobs,obamacare is wrong,eveything is the presidents fault.

Even Cantor losing because he is a loser is somehow the presidents fault???

They are ridiculous and have no responsibility for themselves or anything they do.

They keep throwing their bullshit rhetoric onto the wall and pray it sticks.Some Americans fall for this bull crap.

Congress needs to get a grip stop the blame game and get to work.

Eric played more on Obama's policies and his constituents didn't like that so they voted him out.  Good for them, it's how the political world goes.

There was no Tea-Party (which is not a "party" btw until Obama was elected and started his fast march to destroy the country.

People of both parties (who mostly stayed out of politics and just lived their lives) and independents banded together to stop his insane radical policies.

Cantor was becoming too much A Wall Street, Chamber of Commerce Guy and way too much like Obama.

So yeah Obama did cause it.
