House Republican Whip Eric Cantor, the Virginia Republican and darling of the party’s extreme right wing, claims tea party supporters are not extremists.
As compared to what?
Cantor told CBS’s “The Early Show” today that tea party activists “are people who are concerned about the fiscal state of this country.”
If Republicans recapture the House, Cantor pledged to work closely with the new tea party-backed GOP members as the new majority leader.
Of course he would. Cantor has close ties to the right-wing, well-heeled Koch brothers who back the tea party and paid for the GOP consulting firm that created Citizens for a Sound Economy, the phony grassroots organizatdion that spawned the tea party movement.
The election, Cantor said, is “not about personalities . … People are really upset. They’re tired at the spending in Washington.”
