The Hill recently surveyed dozens of Republicans in the House and the consensus was that the only lawmaker who could defeat Cantor is Ryan.

What about Lee? Doesn't this vote strictly go by senority?

Is Cantor a dem-lite like the rest?

Other Republicans who have been mentioned as a potential Boehner successors include Reps. Jeb Hensarling (Texas), Tom Price (Ga.) and Tom Cole (Okla.).

Anyone have an updated list of the tea party caucus?

Yes

Tom Price of Georgia is a tea party caucus member.  I think there are more in the tea party caucus than in the link I posted. It needs updated.

Rubio. He got to DC on the tea party coat-tail and then refused to caucus upon arrival. The elites got to him. Look for the GOP Elite dems to pimp out Rubio with Cathy Rogers as VP.

I sincerely pray we don't lose another election because we have been divided and conquered..

I guess we should be comforted in the fact Boehner said on Leno he agrees with the tea party 90% of the time.

I am not comforted. It is beyond politics anymore, we are talking bank runs and collapse if they retain power.

Cantor had a 0% rating from NARAL in 2012 and 100% rating from National Right to Life in 2012
He had a 74% rating from the National Taxpayers Union and a 0% rating from Service Employees International Union (SEIU) in 2012
The National Association of Manufactures gave him 100% and the National Education Association gave him a 0% in 2012
The American Conservative Union scored him 95% in 2012 Americans for Democratic Action gave him a 0% in 2012
NRA and Gun Owners of America gave him 100% ratings in 2012
Planned Parenthood Action Fund gave him a 0% in 2013
NumbersUSA rated him 100% in 2013 on Reduce Amnesty Enticements, Reduce Illegal Jobs and Presence, and Reduce Visa Lottery
In 2012 he was endorsed by the Campaign for Working Families
However the John Birch society only gave him a 60% in 2013

So he's a RINO.

It was the unbridled optimism of the American spirit that first attracted me to conservatism.

That died when Obama got re-elected.

Obama is going to use the EO from now on. Cantor and the rest of them will be just figure heads getting paid very well from now on. Obama will get his undocumented democrats too. We are done put a fork in us. This country died the night they re-elected him **nononono*
