You have talked about creating jobs and strengthening the economy, Leader Cantor. You once highlighted the need for reform. Yet lately you have done nothing but make excuses or ignore the issue. It's lazy. It's irresponsible. It has to stop.
Eric Cantor, in an attempt to stay in the good graces of his base, has abdicated all responsibility to govern and has towed the tea party line to avoid a tough primary or losing his No. 2 position in the House.
With the exception of one poorly-chosen word, it seems to me to fit the classic definition of a "Washington gaffe" -- accidentally speaking a bald truth, and having to immediately apologize for such unseemliness.
